Grant's 13th Birthday Scavenger Hunt!

We resurrected the scavenger hunt from Emily's birthday and invited all the boys for Grant's basketball team as well as some of his friends for basketball and football and decided to throw a party! We added a couple of new rules (everyone had to be in at least one picture) and gave everyone 1 1/2 hours to hunt and make it back to the house! The winning team was team #3! Special thanks to my neighbor who let one of the teams into his house and into his shower and to all the local business owners and local residents who helped the kids out!
