We went for massages at Zen 3 Bodyworks, which was wonderful. Then, while on Pickwick Street, we discovered a really neat little grocery store. It is called Homegrown Food. Everything they sell is made in the states, and most of it is made locally. We got some really great Apple Butter that was made in Dunnegan, MO by Ozark Country Kitchen. We also got the best granola I have ever had. We had the Dark Chocolate Cherry Granolove and is made right here in Springfield, MO. I love how when you look at the list of ingredients on the back, you know what they all are. We will definitely be shopping there again.
The following morning we decided to go mountain bike riding at Little Sac. Once we got there, we decided to try our hand at Geocaching. We were using the app on our phone, which gets you in the ballpark of the hidden cache. On our first one, we started on the wrong side Highway 13, which was unfortunately full of poison ivy.
The second one was a lot more challenging. We made it much more difficult that in actually was. It was located right by the trail, but we took a very off trail approach. While hunting, we came across a newborn fawn. He was so cute, just huddle up in the grass. At first we thought he might be hurt and we should help him. But then we decided he was just really young and it would be best to just leave him there.
Finally, we stumbled upon the box. It was hidden really well.
This one said it had a travel bug inside. We didn't find one, unless it happened to look like a broken golf ball.
Turns out Geochaching is a lot of fun and we plan on doing it again. Maybe we can work it into our road trip to Wisconsin this summer. Although we will need to improve some on our hunting skills or it may make for an extra long trip.
Thanks for an amazing nine years David! We have had so many exciting adventures; I can only imagine what the next nine years will hold. I love you!
