View Full Version : Fun with the kids today

Here are a few pics of my kids and what we did today.

While over in Afghanistan I bought a small wooden chest, some junk afghan money, and some fake jewels.

I drew a nice treasure map on some crumpled up brown paper. Threw in a skeleton and a dragon. The treasure hunt was on.

A little map reading: (notice the Jimmy Neutron wrist compass)


X marks the spot:

Unlocking the treasure:


The Haul!!!

i spent a bit of time in the ghetto, so I can read such sign...

and in the last pic, your boy is saying...

"what you got on this booty? Huh? what what?"

Looks like a blast. My dad's attempt at teaching me map reading was no where near this cool, but didn't involve missing him while he was in asscrackistan. Somebody needs to post a son for sale on the boards. Seems to be the only piece of gear I'll be missing after the B-day. Oh well, maybe next year I'll ask for stability and virility at the same time. ;) All you guys with rug rats make me jealous.

Oh yeah, and birthday gear should be excellent pellet rifle and AMAZING hunting bow. Just so I have the toys for a rug rat. . .

Hi, Jim-

It appears that the kids had fun and you are building memories with them that you all will treasure for years to come. Good for you!

I was thinking I could have fun with grandkids...Shouldn't have looked at your age. My oldest is only a little younger than you. OW!

Did similiar things with my son, now he is hiking with me. His first stint on the AT is next week, Carver's Gap to Damascus. It's funny, when they are little they think Dad is Ok, but when the teenage year's come, Dad is not Ok. Now that my son is 20, Dad is Ok again. I'm so glad to be able to spend time with him, one on one........I will cherish this hike and hopefully many more:rock:
