We are team Youngins3, soon to be 4 and have jsut started geocaching in December. This was brought on by my wifes Brother-in-law who is from Michigan and started back in Septemeber of 2010. He has had more time and has traveled to New Zealand and Australia. I have learned a lot. We live in the Milwaukee area and love caching. I hope to meet families with young kids and we can enjoy many caching experiences toghether.

Welcome to the fold.
the great thing about geocaching is that it brings all kinds of folks together.
There are Singles, Couples, Families with kids, Families without kids, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, cousins; the list goes on and on.

I would expect that there are others in your area that cache with their small kids and that they will drop a note here.

Welcome to the fun!

My wife and I cache with our 2 young sons, they love it. Even though we are in Madison, I've become friends with many cachers in your neck of the woods. I'd recommend trying to make some events to meet other cachers. The events are a great time, we're a pretty friendly bunch.

The game is what you make it. Some have a lot of time, others not as much. Cache alone as a family or go in a group. As your children grow, you can foster their interest in caching, and hopefully they will enjoy the outings. Keep an eye out for events in your area and you can develop a network of caching buddies.

Have fun!

Hi there and welcome! Our family only started caching this spring and we were instantly hooked. We live in Waukesha and would be happy to find other families with kids to cache with. Let me know if you ever want to go explore an area and find some caches.

Welcome welcome, we also are a caching team in the Milwaukee suburbs and do almost all our caching with our, now 2 year old girl, in tow. It limits our winter caching, but she loves the adventures when the weather isnt too threatening. The WGA has treated us so kind thus far, so many great people, always willing to lend a hand or give good advice on things.

Hey what's that? Is that glass? Ooops, yup, it was glass...booooo
