This was actually our family night from last week, but I know you’re all dying to know why the heck we were eating frozen burritos, corndogs, and twinkies for dinner! Well, it was truck night! We were truckers! I was inspired by all the trucks in our house, and wah-la, family night!
During the afternoon, we found all the trucks in the house and we played for a while. Jacob looks a little crazy in this picture… that’s why I like it. 🙂
Our delicious truck stop food (plus broccoli, I can’t have my kids eat completely unnutritiously!) was served in trucks!
We all wore our construction hats during dinner.
Look at that slimy neck… somebody’s teething!
After dinner I invented a game where I laid out big marshmallows in a row around the playroom and we went one at a time to see who could fill up the back of the dump truck and dump it out in a bowl the fastest! The boys loved the game. We’re still playing it.
I know the picture is a little blurry, but it just shows how incredibly fast Geric was going. I think he won, but Caden said that he won at the end. That kid always wins everything!
After the race we read a bunch of truck books. Jacob’s not much of a reader, but Caden enjoyed it!
So, family night was a success again. Heather has a ton of ideas over at her blog, and others have added to the list. Check it out! Family Night is a ton of fun, and I’m not exaggerating like I usually do.
