I spent this weekend taking care of a few things around the house and resting (hard week last week). That is until about noon today when I decided that it was to beautiful outside to hang out at home. So, Molly and I headed out to find a few Geocaches located in Highlands Ranch. Found "In A Jiffy" (GCXA6Y), "Another Miller Masterpiece" (GCWERM), "Happy Meal Exchange" (GCX501), and "Super Cache 2" (GCXAEZ).

 This evening we enjoyed watching Bull Riding and Saddle Bronc Riding at our own hometown rodeo. We missed the event last year so we made sure to attend this year. Real small town fun.

After fussing for some time, Molly finally convinced me to take her out even though it was raining. I'm glad I did, we were blessed with a brilliant sunset.

We just returned from our annual visit to Oberlin Kansas. This year we planned our trip to coincide with the Decatur County Fair. What a blast!  Lots of food to eat, people to watch and games to play. I even rode the Tilt-A-Whirl with Sonja. We all had a great time. Sunday evening we watched the races at the Oberlin Speedway. The modified, Classic Modified and Stockcars are always fun to watch, but this year I really enjoyed the Mini Trucks. They don't move as fast as the other cars, but looked like something I might try. Molly and I walked the town every evening and meet several new friends. We visited the Last Indian Raid on Kansas Soil Museum in town and spent some time looking at all the Kansas history. The director of the Museum, Sharleen, is a Geocacher  (DC KS History Buffs). We found 11 Geocaches in both Colorado and Kansas including 2 that DC KS History Buffs had hidden. I can hardly wait until next year.

While on our evening walk, Molly and I saw a half dozen baby Bull Snakes slithering along the trail. They all were of similar size, about 8 to 10 inches long, and were hanging out close to the trail. Possibly recently hatched siblings. Molly doesn't know it, but they are future competition for her favorite mousey snack.

Molly and I visited our first Geocaching sponsored event today, "Dinosaur Days" at Dinosaur Ridge. I've wanted to see the dinosaur tracks visible here for some time and it was worth the effort. It was nice to meet other geocachers too. After the event we hunted a nearby cache, (GCX27N) E Z CH Z, then finished the afternoon at Chatfield Park. All in all a great day!

I had some time around lunch today so I decided to hunt a Geocache. I found the cache (GCKX4M) Eggstraordinary Cache. The hider used the name "Eggstraordinary" as a hint to it's location but for me is was Extraordinary for another reason. The cache was hidden just feet from an apartment I lived in as a young boy and the hiding spot it's self,  a place I often played with my friends. I looked around some, a big smile on my face, thinking " 40 years and I'm still playing games!".
