    Looking for Grandparents

    Living in Arkansas magazine is looking for some local grandparents that geocache with their grandkids for a story on geocaching in retirement in Arkansas. I need to know right away!

    We do geocache with our grandkids - at least the two that are old enough, but we are not retired.

    Semi-retired would fit your lifestyle title well.

    Quiltingranny and I are retired but the two grandchildren that live near us are not interested in geocaching, however our great grandchildren that live near Eureka Springs love it. We live too far away to take them very often but we recently took them to Withrow Springs State Park and introduced them to geocaching there. They are wanting us to come back for a visit and take them geocaching again. We have promised them that we will geocache with them on Saturday the 13th of June and they are very excited, especially the 9 year old great grand daughter Brooke. My daughter says we have created a geocaching monster with her because she talks about how much fun it is all the time.
    Here is a picture of Chris, Justin, and Brooke at the ParkCache at Withrow Springs State Park.

    Way to go Searcy Kid and Quiltin Granny! ! ! When shopping in Ft. Smith, our granddaughter tells her Mom every time they pull into a parking lot where she has found a cache with us. Mischelle (daughter) doubted Abi at first, but after asking us four or five times if there is really a cache at a certain location.... she just gave us and lets Abi tell her the story of finding a cache with Grandma and Grandpa. Isn't it FUN?
