Treasure Hunt

Grandma Willie, I finally made a treasure hunt for your two favorite Michiganders. Here is photographic and video evidence!

They started out at the van, then moved into our waterlogged backyard for clues 2,3 & 4. Then it was back up front for the rest of the action. Sadly, today's hunt was not without some tears and fighting. After all, Jori DID get to pick up the 2 clues on the big pieces of paper. How unfair! And Tyson did get to every clue slightly ahead of his gimpy-limpy little sis. Oh the injustice of it all!

What a fun mom you are! I love when Jori says "I can't find the mailbox" and it's right behind her- LOL! What a neat idea to do a treasure hunt! Tami

When they first found the clue for the mailbox, they started running to the grill. I thought it was a pretty good drawing of a mailbox-it even had the little flag sticking up!
