Scavenger Hunt '08

Are you looking for a fun family activity? Would you like some free fun for one of your Christmas Break days?

One of our favorite family activities is a scavenger hunt. We are planning one for Saturday a.m. If you want an idea of the types of things we did in the Great Treasure Hunt of '06 go here. Jared and Krista are currently writing clues. There are rumors of a geocache being incorporated this time. There will be a 2 hour time limit. Each car will have a portable GPS unit (bring one if you have it - we have 3) and a digital camera (again bring one if you have one - I think we have 5). {Note the GPS units will not be used/needed if our organizers decide not to incorporate a geocache.}

We will do this alone - we'll divide into two teams and have a blast. BUT if any local families would like to join us - please contact, comment or call. We'll meet here at our home at 9:45 a.m. The hunt will begin at 10:00 a.m. SHARP. All will meet back at our home by noon. This will allow time for lunch before Josiah and Jamin have to be at work. We realize this is spur of the moment - but for US this is planning well in advance - it's 2 days out. ::snort:: We would really love to share this event with others, give us a call. Don't feel bad inviting yourselves - we've invited you! ::snort::

Still figuring out lunch - it will either be a pizza feed or a burger burn.....maybe we'll ask you to bring something.... When we hear which families can join us, we'll figure out teams. It was fun dividing our family into two teams...but we easily could be one team. We have two homemade team flags - maybe we can make more OR if your family would like to join us, make a flag or poster board with your team'll pose with it for photos.

The '06 hunt looks like it was a LOT of fun. Too bad I don't live in Texas anymore; I would definitely come out--if only to meet you for real and see if you are anything like De'Etta in my dream :-)

Hope you all have a ton of fun. Sure wish we could join you.

Can't believe how much younger everyone looked...the children sure have grown up in 2 years.

Ah man - isn't that always the way it is. Far away folks would love to join us, local folks think we're nuts ::snort:: and the one local family that is as nutty as us is going to be out of town. ::snort::

OK - I know locals love us but this IS a busy time of year.

The 7 A's will be there with bells on! LMK what I need to bring to help feed the crowds...I have an 18 lb bag of oranges...AND an 18 lb bag of grapefruits ;-)

DeEtta @ Courageous Joy said...

Woot! 3 families will be joining us....I think this will be fun.

Wish we were close enough to join you. 2 days notice isn't quite doable... now if there had been 4 I wouldn't put it past us to jump in the car and head somewhere warm!
