Mom, Dad and 2 beautiful girls (ages 9 & 11) looking to enjoy the variety of hidden attractions in the Coastal Bend. This will be our 2nd year participating in the Texas Nature Challenge. Our 1st year was in 2013, and the girls loved it, but we had to too many things going on to in 2014 to attempt to try. But now we are back to spend some more family outdoors time together.
A Mom's Confession: A will take any time I can get to enjoy our family time before they grow up because it's going by way too fast for me.

Our top tip: Six of the ten features are handicap accessible, so you can drive right up to them. (This will save tired little legs.)
We have attempted this challenge 3 times and still have only found 1 out of the 8 geocaches. What to do when your having trouble with a challenge and off trail advice.
This was the first challenge we did in early April. We had five homeschooling families come out to become Jr Rangers that day.
