The hubs is going to be heading out of town today for 5 days so we wanted to spend some quality family time before he left. I have always loved scavenger hunts. Really! It's also been a great way to occupy the time of my older kids when I just need a break. Each of my kids has a camera so we do picture scavenger hunts. I have sent them out in the snow to walk around the block to take pictures of various things and actions that I have quickly jotted down on paper.
Today, since it's a holiday. Memorial Day weekend to be exact. I felt it was a time to put some of our hometown things on film. We will be moving away sometime soon, (we don't really know when) so we went on a photo scavenger hunt so the kids will have pictures of places that they have been to or that have been a part of their lives the past 6 years.
The hubby and I took a lot of their pictures because one of my requirements is that they be in the photos. Although there is the occasional, ok often, picture of the random car or grass but I'm not going to post those! So here goes. Enjoy our Scavenger Hunt. It took us 3 hours, one lunch break, one trip to a museum and a whole lot of pictures!
|Someone is so excited!|
|Second stop. Where the kids have their sports and sledding hill!|
|Where they both learned how to ride their bikes. Around and around the track.|
|Ok, so we throw in a simple find too. They needed to find some flowers. Lilacs!|
|Next clue was to find the steam plant. The kids were stumped until they caught a glimpse of the tower. Do you see it? Peanut took this pic.|
|Along the way. Ok, I asked them to hug each other, but at least they are still smiling!|
|Not to be left out.|
|They found it!|
|Whoo Hoo! They all took turns standing on this guard rail.|
|Even Sweet T|
Next stop. The Hall on campus that Peanut had her dance recital.
