Here are some photos taken while caching. I have to go trough the other logs to see if i can find some pics of our youngest. We can´t go to far in the wild because of him so we normally go to caches that can be reached with the 4x4 and he takes a little nap during the trip.

Do I count as a kid (I'm 20, going on 21 in a week or so)? Probably not, so I won't bother posting any of myself caching. I don't have kids and haven't been able to convince any of the neighborhood kids to go caching with me, but I wanted you all to know I really enjoyed viewing this post, seeing so many really cool places (I live around Washington, DC, everything is the same) and also seeing so many kids out and about. Though I'm not old by most standards, my job is in Parks and Rec, working with kids of all ages, and I'm steadily seeing kids become more hooked on video games and not wanting to get out at all. Bravo to those of you encouraging outdoorsmanship (is this a word? if not, it should be) in kids!!!

 

Cache on!

Cody thought we should probably look under here for one cache that was giving us fits!

Have tried posting photos into threads here for months....guess I still don't get it. Enjoy!

 

Use the image button (it's the one with a picture of a tree). Just post your link in there, without any of the html markup. No quotes, either.

haha! that is one big "hamburger".

 

I'm pretty casual as to what counts as a "kid" here. The main goal of the "contest" is to get younger folks out caching and promote the idea of family getting outdoors to enjoy a fun activitiy.

 

So, if someone posted a family photo and the "kids" were a little older, I'm fine with that - as long as it's evident that the family aspect is involved. So please feel free to consider this when posting photos.

 

Even though the "kid" above is a little older - I still really enjoyed the photos - so it's in the contest for sure!

It was a beautiful and sunny day yesterday so we took the kids out caching. After the older one retrieved it, it was all we could to to get them to let me take a picture before they dug in to do their trades. :-)

Here are some more pics i found in the old logs.

 

In "Parque da Cidade - Loures". After finding the cache and log the find my wife tryed to run away with our son´s bike who didn´t find it very funny and is trying o get it back :huh:

de8b1f04-f7b3-4ca9-aed8-ff3c8eeaf2c4.jpg

 

Another cache in a park. This one is "Sair da concha". In this one Martim has the cache (that green bottle) in the bike.

d0072be4-697b-40c1-b6c3-124419c74d11.jpg

 

this one is a DNF at "Where are you". See the couple at the end of the garden? That´s where the cache was. We though about telling Martim to throw some rocks at them but we though it would be a very bad idea so we just quit and went away. Martim, meanwhile, was enjoyng a lot playing with the water.

656adacd-d6d7-4f88-898f-fc1b125bda57.jpg

 

In the "Mural" cache in Lisbon. Our Minicacher was armed with the tool to retrieve the cache.

b0de753b-bcd5-400d-8b6a-4b3a600b9db9.jpg

 

In "Les Aventures de Tintin" in Lisbon. Sometimes the kids cache sleeping in the backseat. This one was the case.

82c5dd69-1715-4ccf-b31f-ce2d23c47a83.jpg

 

In "Porto Palafita" on our way to summer hollydays. Almost 40 degrees we made a little detour to find this one. Cris and Afonso, our youngest son with only one year (at this time) were in the car.

c683b4e9-9137-4140-b7de-3a2d000ea883.jpg

 

The whole family (except for the guy behind the camera) in "Dress code" in Lisbon. A great cache to find a great park and 2 museums.

1f38dd7e-eb4e-4ef3-9742-26fba6289218.jpg

 

The next photos were taken in Marvão, a medieval town at the top of a hill where we found the cache "Tásmaver? [Marvão]. A great cache to discover this village.

 

Look what i found? A geocoin!

I Tryed to post some more photos in the last log but i wasn´t allowed so i created a new post.

 

This one was taken while returning from a weekend out. It´s in the cache "Anta de Alter Pedroso", a Megalithic monument in Alentejo. For some reason, the area where the photo was taken is crowded with this megalithic constructions. They are like mushrooms everywhere.

In "O tesouro de D Sebastião", near Lisbon. It was raining so Cris and our young one stayed in the car parked nearby.

Exploring the old castle

I guess this covers all the photos with the kids that i have published in the geocaching website. I probably missed some and i have some more the are not published so i will not post them.

 

I´ve seen some great pics. Thanks to all of you who shared them. I hope you enjoyed some of mine also.

 

Regards to all

Hope this works folks!! Lovely idea for a thread and I think we can claim FTPFUK (first to post from UK!)

We have been caching for about a month now! and have really enjoyed ourselves....even managed to prise "bugboy" out from under his duvet to go out with the "family". This photo was taken at number two of the waterwalks series in Tuckton Dorset UK! T4TT minxyy, "princessannie", "lectroboy", and "bugboy"

Lots of great pix going into this thread.

 

Here is our younger granddaughter with Grammy:

Poppy seems to always carry the camera, so he doesn't get in many photos:

 

Here is her older sister. They are both enthusiastic cachers. Note the rain gear and you'll realize these girls cache regardless of the weather:

 

takeAKid02.JPG

 

Of course, we take our grandson caching, too.

He has his own account and logs in as pacozac: takeAKid03.JPG

 

 

At one time, this was a 1955 Chevrolet which must have been the pride and joy of the owner.

 

Looking forward to enjoying more pix here in the next few days.

Here are my little ones. We take them on the majority of the caches -- except for the ones with 4 or 5 stars. They like to call it "treasure hunting".

Here's my four little rock monkeys! :P:P:P:D

 

We've been geocaching since June 2005!

Having quadruplets hasn't stopped us from getting out and caching.

It's a great way to spend time together, having fun!

We cached our way around town!

Here we are at our first cache find ever (with some buddies) Gosh, they look little!:

Here we are on the first day that we played hooky from school so we could go caching instead:

Here we are at our first find in a swamp (Yeah, Mother of the Year...that's me!):

Here's my oldest daughter at a locationless cache:

Yes, we brought props for this Halloween-themed cache:

Here are my girls, digging through a cache hidden by their Raleigh friends:

3c3b7b2f-b4df-456c-be68-39c6d1ff7dd8.jpg

 

THIS IS FUN! I'M REALLY REMINISCING NOW!!

 

Here's the picture of us that was on the banner thingie on the home page of this website:

4c056889-bbbc-497d-a92a-452ecf1c7427.jpg

 

I think they were FTF this one:

6807f0fc-b1c4-4ae8-9b7b-7cb88d2d65f9.jpg

 

We hid a cache as part of a school project:

And here's my youngest, chasing down some trash at a rcent CITO event:

Holymoley! Wow.

 

Yeah, I remember 14 years ago with our first baby... we would try to ease the burden by reminding each other that *some* people we knew had to deal with twins. Then we would nod at each other in feigned horror. I mean, can you just imagine? (Yes, I guess you can!)

 

Anyway, that picture in the vehicle takes the cake. Beautiful.

It's weird - we have lots of photos of our chicklets - but no really nice ones with them holding or exploring the contents of a cache.

 

Here's a few of my faves:
