I mentioned yesterday when I talked about my lunchtime mini-hike adventure, that we planned to go on a bigger hike and possibly a picnic at lunchtime today!
Well it didn’t happen. Someone threw a baby into our plans.
My coworker Lexy, who is currently on maternity leave, brought her three-week-old baby Hudson into the office for a visit. He is so super cute. It was great to see both him and Lexy. I miss that gal.
We had a good time taking turns holding the cheeky little bebe.
My boss and coworker Mike. Don’t they look like a cute gay couple with their baby? Aww. (they’re not ;))
After Lexy and Hudson left, it was time for lunch!
Salad (spinach, romaine lettuce, cucumber and tomato), topped with tuna!
I haven’t had tuna in a while, I almost forgot about it! One of my friends mentioned having salad with tuna for lunch yesterday and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. I knew I had to have it for lunch today. It did not disappoint.
And after work, I did end up going for an impromptu hike. Have you ever heard of Geocaching?
It’s hard to explain, so check out that vid if you don’t know about geocaching adventures. It explains it in less than a minute.
Ando and I got hooked on geocaching last summer. It is like a scavenger hunt! I love it. We have found a bunch of geocaches in our neighbourhood, but there is one sneaky little cache hidden in a forest near us that we haven’t been able to find. Tonight it was our mission.
After dinner (leftover spaghetti from yesterday), I picked up my brother from my Dad’s house and we hit up the forest where the elusive cache was hidden.
We knew we were looking for an ammo box, and according to the clues it was supposed to be hidden near a dying tree, a ladder tree and a woodpecker house. Helpful (that is sarcasm). We were in a forest full of dying trees, and none of us knew what a ladder tree or a woodpecker house was supposed to look like.
But we had the coordinates, so we searched around the general vicinity where we thought it might be hidden…
Well, the boys mostly searched while I took pictures…
After about half an hour of searching and getting absolutely annihilated by mosquitoes, Alejandrew made the big find!
No wonder we couldn’t find it, look how well camouflaged it is!
What could be inside?
Nothing exciting. I think it is more about the adventure of searching for the geocache than what’s actually inside the geocache, but if you bring something with you, you can leave it in exchange for something else. We just signed the log and left everything as-is.
This was actually the biggest geocache we have found so far, so we were pretty proud of ourselves. Many are only the size of small film canisters.
After our big geocache find, we celebrated by stopping by Dairy Queen for some Blizzard action.
I got a small Turtle Pecan Cluster and it was friggin’ amazing. It is a good thing I don’t still work at DQ, because I cannot resist those little cups of delicousness. I should have been 700 pounds when I worked there in high school, since I pretty much ate a Blizzard every day. And I snacked on the toppings every day all. day. long. And I stuck my face under the softserve dispenser more than once… I definitely can’t work around food!
Before I take off for the eve, I want to share my yummy breakfast!
Whole wheat waffles topped with peanut butter and banana. I am definitely on a waffle kick. Perfect start to my day.
Have a great night!
