Family Night #3

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. 

Coming up next: Family night gone wrong… dun, dun, duh!!!!
