Pancakes and Boxing

Tuesday morning, the kids and I (David worked Monday night and was home after 2 a.m.) drove over to DeLeon Springs State Park to meet up with fellow letterboxers from Georgia, drgdlg, also known as Desi and Darren, with their little girl Raileigh.

The park has this FUN restaurant, The Old Spanish Sugar Mill, where you get to make your own pancakes on the table/griddle. We met there, had a fun breakfast and then decided to find three boxes out in the park.

BIG mistake, as the entire mosquito population was attacking us! We tried to find two of the three box clues I printed, but were 0 for 2, and gave up on # 3 because of the bugs.

Not many pictures were taken, as I thought I had lost my camera. After spending a day & a half searching everywhere, and I mean everywhere (In the fridge, the dryer and two pantries. I have a 5 year old, ya know.), I found the camera inside one of those folding lawn chairs that comes with its own carrying case. The chair had been folded up and put away, with the camera still hanging off the arm rest. But the camera was found after this trip to the park. The only pictures I have are the following, taken with Jake's cell phone (so he's not in either shot).

Sounds like you deserve a medal for dealing with the entire bug population! Fun pics - glad you got something! :o)

Now, that's a gather I would have liked to attend! It's nice to see some of my favorite letterboxers in one pic! :-)
