The Brunette family party this year was based on Grandma Brunette's favorite television show: The Amazing Race. Military Man and I were on a team with the 9-12 year old grandkids.... meaning three of them were ours and the fourth was cousin Jacob.
We were ahead of all the other teams until we got to the combination locks... the darn locks slowed us down so much that we ended up in last place.
By the time we got to the final challenge - launching our Chinese lantern - everyone else was already back home eating dinner. I would have LOVED to get a photograph of ALL of the lanterns in the sky at the same time.
My best attempt at writing "SNAKE" on the snake balloon. It was also nice to see family members we hadn't seen in a couple of years, like Devon and his little kiddos, and those loveable family members ya just can't miss like Aunt Mickie!
