We could see an bunch of lightening ahead of us, and then about 5 minutes later, it started POURING rain. I was panicking because I couldn't see a foot in front of the car. Jerry kept telling me it was okay, but I was still really worried about it. Thankfully, the kids were asleep so they didn't see me freaking out. We ended up driving through 5 thunderstorms, 3 of which were zero-visibility. We finally arrived at my sister's house at about 1:00 in the morning (her time--it would have been 2:00 AM in Michigan).
We stayed up for a little and then finally went to bed. In the morning, my sister had a scavenger/clue hunt set up for the boys. She gave them the first clue, and they had to go find the next clue, etc, until they found their prize at the end. She always does this when they go visit, and they love it!
|Opening their gifts--Pokegon cards, which they love right now|
|A "sit and reach" test... I scored "excellent" for my age at 18.5 inches|
|Holding on as long as I could... I scored way above average|
|This was fun! I had to create menus based on the criteria the computer gave me... you KNOW I rocked that test!|
|Jerry and I played a little game kind of like Battleship|
|Attempting "Chopsticks" on a keyboard ;) I failed miserably.|
