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.
