The latest and greatest

So I haven't felt that we've been doing successful family home evenings. So I got this book that is family home evening for newly weds. So our first real family home evening was on Tuesday. What we did was a scavenger hunt. We had ten items on our paper like married life, yourself, spouse, strength in your marriage, etc. Then we had to find one thing that symbolized each different item. For example a key represented married. The key opens a door to a new chapter in life. It was so much fun! We smiled, laughed, cried(well I did), and it was just so wonderful. The one I loved that Scott did for me was on the strength of our marriage. He had a sponge bob and it talked. So he said it's not the sponge bob, but it what he's doing, he's communicated and that's one of our strengths. He's so clever! Then on the weekend we went to Disneyland. It was pretty intense and Scott fell in love with our picture on the Buzz Lightyear ride and just HAD to e-mail it to himself. Just for the record, the reason why my score is so low is because Scott turns the thing every time I finally get a good aim =)

Pretty intense huh?

Good job that sounds like such a good idea. I think that is a great way to do family night as a couple.
