MNO:: Moms Night Out...

On Saturday, I met up with some girls from Mops for an "Amazing Race" around Orting. We were divided up into teams and given our "clues". We had so much fun!! First, we headed to Trinas house to complete our first task of decorating 3 cookies each. They were supposed to describe you and your family. I decorated a cross, a football and a kitty. After we were all done with that we had to take a group picture as proof. Each task completed had a point value and thats how the judges verified what we had done (by taking pictures). From there, we had to go to Safeway and locate specific food products with a team member holding them, also documenting it on camera. If we were able to get a picture with a store manager we got extra points!! (Our team did it!) Next, we were off to the Orting Fire Department! We had to do a few things like dress up in bunker gear, sit in the engine, slide down a "poll", get a pic in front of the station and another with some of the firemen!! Thankfully, the other team had already been there so we didnt need to explain what we needed once we arrived. They were already waiting for us! Next, we were off to Heidi's house where we had to watch a clip from last weeks "Amazing Race" we had to put note cards with phrases on them in order as they were said by the contestants. Once completed, we took a picture! The next challenge was a Road Block. We were sent to Subway where one person (me) was given 6.00 to make 1 ft long sandwich including 1 bread, 1 cheese, 1 meat and 2 sauces and 4 toppings. We were all supposed to eat the sandwich once I was done making it, and yes, take a picture! We were off to our last challenge, a "Detour", at Blockbuster video. We had to unscramble a movie title (from 1989), locate the movie, and then document with a picture -OR- come up with a movie title with each letter of the alphabet starting with "a" and ending with "z" (and I think take a picture with them as well) we were unable to complete that challenge because time was running out. We were only give 10 minutes per clue. If we were back early, we got bonus points. We opted to go with the bonus points instead of try to figure out the movie title. Both teams made it on time for the extra points, the race was over and it was time to go to Suzannes house to eat appetizers, upload our pictures and enjoy each others company while we watched the slideshow of the race on a projector. I think everyone had a blast....I know I did..but the most important thing is that our team won!! We were given a great prize including a free Emerald City Smoothie!! Thank you so much to Heidi and Trina for a wonderful evening out with the girls...and thank you Steven for taking both kids during the race!! I truly appreciated the time to myself :) and to Alicia and Claire...better luck next time (hehe)!!
Here are just a few of the many pictures from last night...
