    Our family came in 2nd place (Silver medal) during the Family Olympics at the campground we are in this week. They had some neat events...things I haven't done since I was a kid. 3 legged race, egg spoon race, piggyback race, wheelbarrow race, kayak race, etc. Someone from each family had to participate...but all 5 of us ended doing most events. My ankle is still sore from the rope we used during the 3 legged race !!

    The big finale was the blindfolded obstacle course. Each parent was blindfolded and the kids shouted directions from the sidelines. I took first place in that event...beating my toughest competition all day by only 5 seconds !! :cool1:

    Our prize was a mini frisbee golf set. I've never played before so it should be interesting. First place was ladder golf...which we already have so I was glad we didn't get that. :)

    So 'fess up....when was the last time YOU competed with your kids in events like these ??

    The last time for us was when DS was 10 and the school had a carnival.
    He's now 25 and would probably enjoy playing Pete's games better. :thumbsup2

    Easter and Halloween at my sister's house.

    We all thrown in 5-10 a head, and the winners of each game get a % of the pot.
