GPS Adventure Game and Summer Fun

This week we headed out to pick strawberries again on one of my days off. However, when we arrived the sign at the gate said "All Picked Out." Oh no! Cade, my three year old, quickly informed me after I read him the sign that we were "Not going to have any fun today." After laughing at his dramatic exclamation, I decided we would find something else to do. That was when the GPS adventure idea was born.

I pulled out my GPS and selected a city about thirty minutes away. Then I picked POI (points of interest) around that area. There were several points of interests I had never heard of or had never been to. I have to admit the first place we tried to go, a dinosaur trail, was closed and out of business. We tried again and I found Big Rock Park in Glenrose, Texas. Here are some pictures of our adventure. They boys loved it!

My son loved climbing up, under and through the passages of the huge rocks.

We climbed in the nearby creek and went for a walk. We ended up soaked after a water fight!

I think we are going to have to make our GPS Adventure a family tradition. What a great way to get rid of summer boredom and discover a new place! Please let me know how your GPS Adventure goes and what you find!
