A Valentine Scavenger Hunt

This is odd ... I know guys. TWO blogs from me in one day? I know, don't get too excited. I am one day behind on my photo challenge ... (shakes head). I will catch up though!

Anyway, for Valentine's Day my son couldn't go to school because he got sent home sick the day prior. Due to daycare rules, "the child must be out a full 24 hours is sent home with a fever." So, we spent the holiday together and decided to go on a heart scavenger hunt (while mommy still got some exercise in).

And this is what we found.

                               Heart #1 - Leaf                                 Heart #2 - Ant hill

                               Heart #3 - Asphalt                           Heart #4 - Removed bark on tree

Okay, so in 2.5 miles around our neighborhood, a 5 year old boy, and two accompanying dogs, I consider four hearts a good discovery. I found the majority of them ... but I did let my son figure out where the heart was. He was a little skeptical about the asphalt one. He was looking at it from a different angle than I was and kept saying, "No, a heart is shaped like this (makes a heart with his hands)." Finally, I convinced him once I took the picture. LOL Boys.

I got this sweet idea from Pinterest.com at a blog called Slow Family Online. If not for Pinterest, I probably would have never found this awesome blog. If you're not on Pinterest, you're missing out on all sorts of amazing ideas. People share the most creative, hilarious, and amazing things on there. And while you're at it, follow me!
