The boys and I went to Beeville and did some more geocaching today. It was a fairly quick trip, though, because Zach had an awards banquet tonight in Refugio. We went after three of them, but because I ended up not looking at or printing out the GPS coordinates or clues for one of them, we only found two.
Our last geocache stop was at this cemetery, where Mathieu and I looked at some old family graves, while Zachary honed in on the geocache. I told Mat who they were and a family story or two about some of them.
Aunt Lela, my grand-mother's sister died when I was a baby. But she is still remembered today in so many family stories. She was very witty, with a really wonderful sense of humor and fun. She contributed many original sayings and jokes that continue on in the family to this day.
Jake, her only child, died when he was six years old.
Henry Ryan would be Mathieu's great-great-great-great-grandfather.
And a shot of the second found geocache of the day.
After that we drove by the park where the new walking trail is. I can't remember the name of the park at the moment, but they have been really developing it lately, and are still doing more to it. It looks pretty nice, and I hope we can go there in the late afternoon one day soon.
