Sundays in My City

Unknown Mami

I have written about Provincetown a few times, but can only find one of those times here.  Anyway, my friend Faith and I, celebrated a day off of school on Friday with a trip to P-town. It takes close to an hour to get there. K and B both invited friends and Faith brought her son and daughter. (It was a FULL minivan!) Someday her son will appreciate the gift he was given to hang out with 7 girls, but lucky for Faith, I don't think it will be any time soon.

I had some brainstorm to do a scavenger hunt with the kids so they wouldn't be whining about the wind and that they were bored. To make it easy, I wrote the word, Provincetown, down the side of an index card, gave them a pen and put it in a big baggie. We split them up into 2 groups and told them to find (buy or take a picture) of something that begins with each of the letters. We let them go off for about an hour and a half and they had a blast! One group took all pictures and one group bought most of the things. Click on this picture to make it bigger and see some of the examples. I highly recommend this, they loved it!

Such a fun, beautiful day!
Happy Sunday!

That was a cool idea, and a great travel game anytime. Love the pix from your day trip, especially to old building on the pier.

FABULOUS pictures! And I love your scavenger hunt. It doesn't take much encouragement for kids to have fun on a boring trip. Congrats!

On a side note - I had NO idea that Blogger started protecting our pictures from downloads! I scrolled through your pictures and liked the format, realized that you used the same format I do, then popped back over to my blog. HOLY COW! Clicked on one of my pictures and was able to scroll through them. It's still not impossible for someone to snag a picture, but much more difficult. I wonder how long it's been that way?

I love your scavenger hunt idea.
