Honey's nephews-ish (kids of Honey's cousin, not sibling) are in town for the week and we got to have them spend the night this weekend. We love getting to see them, they are such sweet boys.
As I was thinking of things to do while they are here, I decided it would be a fun time to come up with the summer version of the great scavenger hunt.
I really wanted to do this on a budget because I'm trying to make the summer fun money go as far as possible, so my goal was $50. Not counting food -- I took all of that out of my eat-out money and the grocery money -- I spent $44. The only reason I spent that much was because I bought a new DVD.
We ate my version of this cake while we watched a new DVD. I was hoping my way would take less time to bake because I only had 40 minutes to get it done. And when I was baking it, I was tired, and the night-o-scavenger hunting hadn't even started.
My way only took 1 cake mix . . . although I used 1 1/2 cans of icing. Momma loves her some icing.
After the movie, there were glow sticks...
And then we had strawberries and bananas for a morning snack. And then we made Hobo Dinners for lunch. And then we polished off the cake for an afternoon snack. Because another thing I learned about pre-teen boys this weekend is that the thing they'd most like to find when they open a gift bag is food.
