Halloween Scavenger Hunt

Posted Oct 22 2013 2:49pm

Last night, we had a family gym night. Well, except for Jaden. He went to the kid’s room.

Jacob has really gotten into running lately, so I have been trying to encourage his interest. He signed up for a fitness club at school and wants to go to the gym to run on the treadmill.

I kind of hung out with Jacob on the treadmill. I didn’t get in a great workout because we had just finished eating dinner and my quad was bothering me.

I ran a mile with Jacob on the treadmill. I did a few random ab exercises and stretches, and then I raced Danny 1.5 miles on the stationary bikes. The bikes are neat because you can race the person next to you. All I really accomplished at the gym was making my quad feel worse.

When we got home, I ate about half the box of the peanut butter Puffins – my new favorite cereal! So good!

Today

This morning I practiced BodyPump for about 40 minutes at home. I have all the moves memorized, but now I realize that I have to practice with heavier weights, so I can lift and talk at the same time.

I love BodyPump, but I will be so incredibly happy and relieved once this video has been submitted. I feel like BodyPump has taken over my life!

Halloween Scavenger Hunt

I forgot to tell you how my Halloween Scavenger Hunt went on Friday night! It was really fun and hopefully everyone had a good time.

I split everyone into three teams and each team was given a list of items to find or collect and things that they had to take a picture of and send to me.

Each item/picture was worth a certain amount of points and at the end all the points were added up and the team with the most points won!

Some of the items on the list included:

  • Bringing back my favorite candy – (Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup – only one team got this right)
  • Wrapping a stranger up like a mummy 2013-10-189519.21.20
  • A picture of a black cat crossing your path 2013101895195148
  • A picture of a house with tombstones in the front yard 2013101895202352
  • Bringing back the thing that jack o lanterns were first carved out of (turnips)
  • A picture of a team member in a Halloween costume IMG_3121
  • Going to the pet cemetery and getting the black rose
  • A picture of a team member chasing someone around the store with a pretend chainsaw 2013-10-189519.28.26
  • A picture of a Christmas display IMG952166

There was a lot of items on the list and I think the game went really good and everyone had fun!

When everyone was gone collecting their items, Jaden and my niece had fun finding Halloween eggs in the backyard.

I thought it was kind of weird to have Halloween eggs with candy in them (isn’t that pretty much Easter?!) but Jaden saw them at the store and I figured they keep the kids busy for a while.

When everyone came back, I added up the points and the winning team got a small prize!

This weekend will be busy with Halloween fun too – on Friday we’re going to the pumpkin farm and haunted hay ride and Saturday is the Halloween party! I really need to finish my costume!

Have a great afternoon!
