Michelle is home and a little geocaching

Michelle was released from the Hospital yesterday morning and was tired of being couped up and wanted to get out for a little bit.

I suggested doing a couple cache's (VERY easy ones) just to get her out and about. Two of the tree we could drive to within a couple feet of the cache, but we ended up doing three yesterday.

The first cache of the day was named Obezag, I think the hardest part about this cache was selecting the right road to drive on to get to it. If you are looking for a hint to this one, spell the name backwards and it may give you a little indication where it was Hidden.

The second cache of the day had us driving back and forth between two spots (see third cache) to find this one. It is called NW3-See and was a pretty easy find....for Michelle. I was looking everywhere and she just started standing still. She found it.

The last cache was sending us all over the area to find, of course I need to mention I got the largest ice cream cone in my life (honestly about a foot above the cone) at Dairy Creme Corner in Fairmont.

Anyways the third and final cache of the day was a place we had been at multiple times that day. It was called Catch a Wave and was also in Fairmont. The name alone should give you an indication of where it was located, if you are at all familiar with Fairmont. However we kept driving every insignificant road to get to it. We did drop the geocoin that we were holding in there for the next cacher to grab.

I don't think I pushed Michelle too hard, but she was in a little bit of pain from the bumping around in the car. She took a few Aleve and it seemed to ease her pain and make it bearable to an extent, considering that she had just had surgery. She appeared to have a great time and enjoy herself.

Today, I told her to get together with Hayley and decide what they would like to do. Don;t know what today holds, but I can bet it wont be sitting in front of a computer on a nice holiday weekend. =)
