The Amazing Family Race!

We finally made it to The Amazing Family Race!

My kids' school always held a carnival before the school year ends, but I have never thought of going... until this time... the theme of the carnival got my attention. Of course, I am an Amazing Race fan!

Here's our clue... to find 5 letters in each challenge to form a word. There were 15 challenges, but we only need to do 5 in order to get all our clues. The kids had so much fun that we did most of them. Patricia found 4 of the clues, she's really into it.

Rock climbing challenge, 30 feet high.
A first for both of them...

and they were not afraid!
They did it in less than 2 minutes! Bravo!

The pit stop.
They get to spin the wheel to get their prize.
