The following (grey background portion) is the original cache description, and is no longer applicable. Feel free to check it out. We thought we'd leave it to let everyone see what this cache was originally all about. We had a blast being able to create something like this, and thank everyone who was part of it and their words of encouragement!
Kaelan Ashley was born on August 4, 2009. She weighed 7lbs, 9oz. Mom, MagenticGirl, and Kaelan, Cache-Bandicoot, were/are happy and healthy with no problems at all!
Thanks again to everyone that played our little baby-pool caching game!
Congrats to JBrandt36 on being the FTF!
Congrats to glacier_ice on being the FTNOB!
Should be a quick and easy find...but there's a TWIST...
MagenticGirl and myself (Antihiro) are having our first baby
in the very near future. The actual due date is August 7, 2009
We thought it would be fun to have a little contest/baby pool with a geocaching twist!
Anyone who finds this cache
will be eligible to potentially provide our geo-baby with a middle name...yes....really!
All you have to do is find this cache, and then when you log it on geocaching.com, provide your guess for the date the baby is born, and it's weight (lbs and ounces)
. In addition, submit what you would like our baby's middle name to be: one boy and one girl or one unisex name
. We don't know the sex of the baby yet.
Fun and playful names are welcome, but please nothing ridiculous or obscene as this really will be part of our baby's name. So poop-meister and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious are examples of things that will probably get ignored.
A winner will be declared based on the person who guesses the correct or closest date the baby is born. If more than one person guesses the correct date, the closest weight will be the winner! We will use that persons name suggestion as our baby's middle name!
Once the baby is born, we will post the actual date, weight and the winner!
