Reed Family Fear Factor
One night after dinner, we had left over guacamole that wouldn't keep very well in the fridge so one of the kids suggested that we play Fear Factor. Instead of just throwing it away, we thought this would be a fun family activity. It was such fun that the kids are already planning on what we could mix up to eat next weekend. One suggestion was straight tuna. Uh, come on guys, can't you get a little bit more creative? How about pineapple chunks smothered in brown gravy and topped with chopped onions? Yeah, that's what I'm talking about.
Sveta and Rachel both ate the guacamole and got the choice of five bucks or a bowl of Skittles. You can see what each girl picked.
Besides me just being a kid at heart and loving to do fun stuff like this, it is so important to set aside unstructured family time where the family can let loose, have fun, and just be themselves.
This is something that I know they will remember forever.
