My husband's birthday was Monday, and last Sunday (as we were watching the season finale), I had the most brilliant idea. I would create an Amazing Race for his birthday! I asked his boss to let him work in the office Monday morning and have the rest of the day off. I arranged to have his family birthday celebration Monday night instead of the usual Sunday closest to the birthday. Then I brainstormed different tasks to have him complete. (Not sure how that Uno game got in there...it was NOT part of the planned activities!)
I was originally planning to meet him for lunch, and this first clue would say to go to a specific place to eat, but then my car broke, so after he came home to get us, I gave him his next clue:
Top: "From William and Tom Bradford"
and because I didn't know if he would get it or not,
Bottom: "(voice-over) Birthday teammate must determine that Tom Bradford is a park and he needs to go there. After playing with his son, he will get his next clue."
In throw the ball, blah blah blah, go bowling.
In hit the balls, blah blah blah, shoot pool in the arcade.
He thought I was going to take a picture, but I think this is cuter. :-)
