On our way out to the car from our failed attempt, Lexi spotted a man hole cover and decided to take her "obligatory" bow.
Then her Daddy had to get in on the action, sans man hole cover. His bow was less ballerina and more "ready to squat in the woods," but equally photo worthy. :-)
We swapped SWAG (Stuff We All Get - Usually trinkets and toys, nothing of great value) and logged our find. The bug had bitten and we decided to grab one more before we headed home. We had lots of chores to do since we were hosting a little picnic for Lexi's birthday on Sunday (the next day), so we couldn't spend all day out caching, as we so love to do. She has been very excited about "treasure hunting" and was hoping to teach some guests how to do it on Sunday as well.

Here is its goal (copied directly from geocaching.com):
"Unit 679's mission is to complete the mission of Ms. Siren 911. (Although Ms. Siren 911 made it to New York City, she was unable to get to ground zero, she went missing in action just a few miles from ground zero.Hopefully someday some kind person will find her and send her home or will see that she completes her mission).
Owner:(Mrs Heyou) I am a Firefighter II with the Gambo Volunteer Fire Dept. in Newfoundland and spent 12 years as an Emergency Medical Responder with the local ambulance service. I would very much like for one of my rescue units to make it to ground zero in New York City to pay my respects to all of the fallen firefighters that lost their lives in the Twin Towers tragedy.
It would be greatly appreciated if you could take pictures of Unit 679 with other Ambulances, Fire Trucks, Firefighters or Fire departments. Thank you."
We will make it a point to try to get a pic or two to satisfy that piece of the request, and then I will pass this along on the east side of Ohio when I go there at the end of this month... moving it East toward its goal. I wish I knew someone headed further that way, I would most definitely pass it off to make it happen. It felt good to end our caching for the day here, as we felt like we were "rescuing" it from where it laid.
If you want to see where Mrs. Heyou's Unit 679 has been so far, follow it here.
So, happy with ending on a high note, we headed home to prep for Lexi's birthday celebration picnic.
