The sialic pine weasel defenestrated the edible doryphore, or Letterboxing.

Here we are at the beginning of our trail:

We all had fun, but I think we won't be doing this again until November, when it isn't 94 degrees.

For more information on letterboxing and to find letterboxes (and their clues), go to Letterboxing North America.

Check out Mom's Marbles for more ways to explore.

I love the idea of letterboxing. I have wanted to go for a while, but have decided our kids are still too young. Maybe by November, we'll invite ourselves to join you!

We'd love to have you join us! Consider yourselves pre-invited.
