She made a cover for her scriptures. Notice the bright green of her quad. No, they are not being sold in that color now. And no, her scriptures were not falling apart. She made a removeable cover for them out of green duct tape. Very inventive. She has even gotten requests from ward members to make covers for them.
I am pretty sure nothing would keep her scriptures safer than duct tape. At least no earthly intervention anyway.
Sister Chesney, (or Kimberly as we can soon call you): Good luck in the real world. We will miss you here in VA.

For those of you who don't know, a geocache is a type of treasure hunt.
What you do to find them is go to geocaching.com and search your area code or city. You have to sign in to get them, but basic membership is free. They usually have lat and long coordinates which you can use a GPS to find.
Or you can do what I did for this one (if you don't have a portable GPS), which was plugged the lat and long coordinates into google earth, or similiar type map and satelite viewer, and zoomed in until I recognized my neighborhood park and figured out where in the park the geocache was.
Then I walked to that area and looked around till I found it.
Most geocaches are some type of small container: tupperware, Rx bottles, film cans, etc. with a log book or paper inside to write your name. You can see in the picture this particular geocache was a keychain fob that unscrewed, (originally probably to keep an extra dose of asprin, valium or viagra). Inside was a rolled up strip of paper that had the names of everyone who has found it. I forgot to take a pen, so I will have to go back to sign it. You can then go on line and log in that you found it.
There are thousands of these all over. My parents found one in Williamsburg when they were visiting here a few months ago. There is at least one more within a mile of my house. It's back in the woods though, so I'll probably need a GPS to find it.
It was pretty cool going on a walk in my own neighborbood, going in to a bunch of trees and finding a hidden treasure that was almost sitting in plain sight, but that I never would have found otherwise. I sense a new hobby for myself....

We plan on making a tradition out of this trip.This is a baptist church downtown. I think it is a homeless shelter or soup kitchen too. It was a beautiful building and really stood out from the modern buildings all around. I couldn't stand far enough back to fit the whole church in the frame.
This was taken from the King Street Metro station. This station is elevated. As it gets closer to downtown it goes underground.
Our hotel is just out of sight to the left.
As you can see, it was very wet and rainy all day. We had fun anyway.
This is the big arch in China Town. It is one block away from the Verizon Center where the Wizards suffered an embarrassing defeat to the Utah Jazz this last Friday. It was the Jazz' 8th win in a row.
The Metro comes up right underneath the Verizon Center.
