Three years we’ve been doing this challenge.
It seems like only yesterday that I first thought up this idea and tried like heck to recruit people for it. We’ve had a pretty good little group and I think, besides me, there’s only one or two others who have done every single month.
Still, even those who have only missed a few, or others who have participated here and there or only once, it’s been fun to host this challenge and I look to keeping it going for as long as I can.
This month went by pretty quick and I got a few shots I wanted, but the theme “three” actually stumped me a little, too. I think I got a good selection of photos and I look forward to seeing what others came up with.
Anyway, it’s time to get into it. My selections are below. Remember to link up at the bottom and visit others and hopefully comment!
1. Three placed geocaches
This is the third geocache I ever placed (including events, I have more than 100 now — though not all are active). I am a believer in archiving caches after a certain length of time, but there are a few I just can’t do it to (my first one and this one are two of those). This is still the original container, too. I placed it on May 4, 2008. To date, it has 100 finds and five DNFs. I also noticed when I went to take this photo that I think somebody put a new log in there, which is disappointing because the original was still there, I believe. Though I also might have switched it out. I can’t remember. I’ll have to look again when I do some spring maintenance on my caches in a few weeks. I might end up replacing this container, too, as it seems to have gotten a little beat up, as one can imagine.
2. Three Jettas
In early March, I traded in my second Jetta to get my third. It’s also my third Volkswagen. I’d say it was my third stick shift, but I didn’t go that route this time. This car has been extremely good for me and I’m glad I went with this car.
3. Three eggs
Easter, of course, was this past weekend. Cameron, my nephew and godson, was going to get his first Easter egg hunt! I set it up before he was over and when he got here and before his nap, he got to go on the hunt. More on that in a moment, though. Here are three of the eggs that he was seeking.
4. Three finds
This was the third egg Cameron found. It was at this point that he was starting to get it a little bit more and was really on the eye out for them. It was fun to watch when he found them on his own without hints — his excitement was higher.
5. Three Easters!
Cameron isn’t three yet (December), but this was his third Easter. I wanted to set up this Easter egg hunt, but not knowing how he’d take to it, I only set out 10. In hindsight, I wish I had done more because he really loved it. When he found the 10th one (one he missed the first time), he was jumping around and all happy. Once inside the house, he loved opening the eggs and seeing what was inside (candy, a couple of toys etc.), so it was very much worth doing. This was after he had found all 10 eggs and before we all headed inside. I look forward to doing this again next year.
There are my five and I look forward to seeing what others had this month!
If you took part in this month’s challenge, make sure to link up below. And for those of you who participated, make sure you try and get to other people’s blogs and comment (here, too!). Let’s continue to grow this challenge and have a strong community. Come back and check out the others who link later on, too!
Also, don’t forget to get back here Friday, April 1 to see the theme for April (no fooling)!
NOTE: I set up a Facebook group for those who participate in the challenge and are interested. I’ll post any announcements there and hopefully it can be a place where things are discussed and some interaction etc. You can access it here.
