Picture Scavenger Hunt

*Warning: There are a lot of pictures. But duh, it's a picture scavenger hunt people.

Here are the themes our teams interpreted in photographic form:

1. Trust Me
2. Case Closed
3. On the Edge
4. How'd You Get in There?
5. Brother, I'm Committed
6. Help!
7. Let it Be
8. Hold My Hand
9. Yellow
10. Ladies First
11. Baby Steps
12. Think Twice

I put them all there together in case you ever wanted to steal the list for your own purposes. It really was terribly fun. I highly recommend it. In our case, since we had so many children, we stayed in our neighborhood so we wouldn't have to drive anywhere. We gave each team a list, and an hour to shoot. Here is what we came up with. There was no declared winner, but you can decide for yourself which ones you like best. They are each pictured with Team 1's picture first and Team 2's picture second. (Brady actually gave our team (2) the name of "Does this make me look Fete?" He definitely wins the prize for best team name.)

1. Trust Me

"Jump Jake, I gotcha!"

Porter is not convinced


2. Case Closed

Jake finally caught the neighborhood culprit

This case is CLOSED


3. On the Edge




4. How'd You Get in There?



5. Brother, I'm Committed

Sorry Jake, she already has a man
No going back now


6. Help!



7. Let it Be

Marty was singing 'Let It Be' while everyone did the lighters (okay, you have to imagine lighters)
Yes, I super-imposed the 'B' on top of the kids


8. Hold My Hand

My personal favorite of the whole night
Go Team 2


9. Yellow

Yellow fire hydrant, wearing yellow, and yes...peeing yellow (pretend peeing!)
Brady is the 'O'. Get it. Yell—O


10. Ladies First

Probably my second favorite picture


11. Baby Steps

We seemed to have the same idea on this one


12. Think Twice

We didn't have to think twice about this picture

Oh wait, did you notice that there is only one picture for 'Think Twice'? That is because Team 1 forgot to take a picture for that theme. So I guess they are going to have to think twice about claiming the victory for this game. So I declare, in my most unbiased opinion, Team 2—the winners. Or, if you will: Does this make me look Fete—the winners!

Really, we were all winners. Because we got to spend time together. Aaahhh. 

Just kidding, Team 2 totally spanked Team 1. And if you have a different opinion, you are welcome to comment.

It's a good thing I am not too competitive.

Both Dad and I agree that this was a very fun idea. We went through and voted for our favorite picture of each set (and we pretty much agreed in each case). Not counting number 12 (which had no competition), we voted for team number one five times, and we voted for team number two five times. And there was one we couldn't decide on. So I'd say you were pretty even. I can't imagine where you got that competitive spirit from . . .

Jake says, "We thought twice about taking our think twice picture, which means we are far more superior for actually thinking twice. Therefore we are the champs."
I think he is full of fluff! And, The only reason their team is named #1 is because they weren't clever enough to think of anything else! HAHAHA!!!!!
