And I'll Go Tally The Votes...

Harrison and I participated in our church's "Mom and Son Survivor 2009" event today. We had so much fun!! This was our first time participating, so we didn't know what to expect other than it was going to be a lot of fun. And boy, were we right!
First we were placed into a Tribe with some other mothers and sons. We were in Tribe 1, but we renamed it the "Reigning Rhinos." The first thing we did was to tie-dye our t-shirts and make our family name plaque. The plaques went on our tribal pole.

Here is the "Reigning Rhinos" tribe with their tribal pole. Becky and Boone Ramsey are on the left and Allison, Joshua, and Dylan Lingo are on the right.
Next game the "Challenges." There was a Food Challenge where the Moms fed their blindfolded sons "worms." (It was really noodles and pop rocks!) Then we had to do the obstacle course.

Swinging across the "water", pulling water balloons through the poles, and Army-crawling through a tent were part of the course. Moms had to go through the course too! Sorry, no pictures of that!
We then played tug-of-war.

After that, we got to launch the water balloons together.

Next came a Scavenger Hunt. We had to follow the clues, grab the pieces, and put together a puzzle with the rest of our tribe. The puzzle formed a Bible verse--Romans 10:13--which we had to say together.
Finally...we made it to Tribal Council. Thankfully no one was voted off!
We had a devotion by PastorJohn Ryberg and then....
...we handed long sticks to the boys and roasted marshmallows for s'mores!!!
It was such a fun evening, and I am so proud I got to spend the time with my little man! I can't wait to do it again next year!
