It's hard to believe we are halfway through May and that summer is almost here! (Well, summer WEATHER is here already. It is Texas, after all!) We are getting ready for family vacation with Carrie's parents and siblings and their families. We are in charge of some of the activities to do while we're all together. Here are some of our ideas:
Family Bingo: Give out Bingo cards with everyone's names in the spaces, and then call out fun facts about each person. Cover the name of the person the fact is about and repeat until someone gets five in a row!
Interactive Movie: Pick a family-friendly movie and put up a list of actions to do while you're all watching. For example, you might call out, "Hello!" every time a character walks through a door, or every time there's a car chase, everyone in the room has to change seats. It's kind of like a drinking game for non-drinkers!
Wooden Spoon Game: This is a game I heard about several years ago, and no one has ever wanted to play it with me! I'm determined to play it this year. :-) Someone stands in the middle with a blindfold and holding two wooden spoons. Someone else joins that person in the middle, and the blindfolded player has to figure out who the other person is by only touching them with the wooden spoons.
And of course, there will be swimming, s'mores, more swimming, and mostly just enjoying being together. We can't wait!
