Date Night with the boys

It's going to be a great night...I am one super excited momma! It's date night with the boys...which means...I get to go out with one of the boys...and the Engineer gets to hang out with the other little guy!

This date night has a theme...its a Scavenger Hunt based off the movie Up which our family has not seen yet.

So I made up these little backpacks that have five different clue cards in them for each boy!

The first card is a picture of little fork, plate, knife...each boy gets to pick where he wants to go for dinner!

The second card is a picture of a balloon...they need to go pick out a balloon and get it filled up with helium!

The third card is a picture clue to take a ride Up an escalator or elevator!

The fourth card is clipart from the movie Up that shows a house being lifted Up by balloons!

The last clue card is a ticket that says "Admit one: This ticket allows Tyler/Tanner to view one movie, eat popcorn, candy, and juice!"

We all end Up meeting back home for the movie Up! Yeah!

I am so stinkin' excited to get going...woo-hoo! We are just waiting for the boys to wake from their nap and the Engineer to come home from work...then all the fun begins!!

Our family would like to wish you all a super fantastic weekend...and remind you to look Up and remember your Creator loves you!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Whee!! What fun, Nichole! Moments to remember.

I'm looking forward to seeing up. CJ bought her Daddy tickets to see the movie when it came out. Mama never gets to see first-run anything, so I'm anxiously awaiting my home DVD moment.

Not too many Jujubees, now!

A beautiful idea; thanks for giving to your family so freely. I know just how much energy/creativity/time goes into our "plans." They will remember this night for a long season.
