I'm also hoping to get back to EA Sports Active and Pilates for the Wii. Kris said until we "play" those enough we can't buy the Wii Sports Plus, so I'd better get busy! I think we are going to get rid of our Y membership to help offset the cost of tuition for the kids. So it will be important to get back to doing some sort of physical activity and I'm too much of a wimp to walk in this heat!
You know, I never did write about the scavenger hunt we had over spring break. Some of you may remember me complaining about how mad I was that some of my team's photos were losing to Kris' team. My team lost the scavenger hunt. As a refresher, here is the post where I first talked about the best day I've ever had with my kids: Grr....
The link to the scavenger isn't valid anymore for voting...but you can see the results (if you have a Facebook account). Some of my team's pictures won, but overall, Kris' team got more votes. Next year though...I'm determined...and I've learned how people vote. So hopefully we'll have more of a chance. Although, considering the amount of awesome people who voted, it was actually a pretty close competition. The final score was Pink Lightning (me, Kaleb and Livvy): 841 and Fast Thunder (Kris, Kat, and Abbey): 1019. Those are individual votes. We each had 25 pictures that were judged-so to have that many votes was pretty incredible.
Thinking about this scavenger hunt leaves me longing for vacation next year. We are all so excited to do this all over again. Next to our Christmas ornaments (see this post from 2008 for more details), it's my favorite family tradition! I still need to make the certificate showcasing the winning team so that we can proudly display it in our home. I'm hoping to work on that this evening.
