When we moved to Texas three years ago, I got lost...a lot. Ok, admittedly, I've always gotten lost a lot, even in my hometown, but it was really bad when we moved to a new state. For Christmas that year, I had a few things I wanted, and when my husband asked me what I wanted most, I decided on a GPS. That year I got a Garmin nuvi. Wow, what a lifesaver! I could get back and forth to work and go shopping without aimlessly wandering the streets of southeast Texas. It has often saved my time and my sanity.
I still use my GPS a lot, and now we've discovered a new use for it - geocaching. We just found out about the worldwide game of geocaching a few days ago and made our first run Saturday. It was fun, and our kids have been begging to go again, so we may hit a couple of more caches this weekend. Who knew a GPS could bring family togetherness?
