Family Night Scavenger Hunt

Our lives seem to go in many directions these days so we have set aside one night a week to actually do something as a family. For our first family night we planned a scavenger hunt to go with our walk along the Animas River Trail. Sweatshirts on, it is getting a little cool here, lists in hand and out the door we go.
A small delay, Suburban won't start, must have left a light on or the door ajar.
Ok, Josh's vehicle may not look so great on the outside, but the battery in the PT would not start us but his would! Josh to the rescue.
Yes, everyone in were ready to go!

We dropped the kids off at the trail head and then took the van to our end destination so we only had to walk one direction.
While we were gone the kids had some fun on the swings with my camera getting photos of them flying off.

There goes Ruth and Drew.

Ice Cream Cones for dessert, who won you say? Ok it was actually a tie!!

Over all a great evening! Anybody with more ideas for our next Family Night let me know?!

Yeah, I love the Quiz blog! What a fun family night. We just did a similar thing but we looked for letters, things that made letters. Like a tree brach that made a "C". It becomes obsessive really! We brought our camera and took pictures. You could do the alphabet or search for words. Even the girls got into it. You might try for more ideas. Love you!
