{A Treasure Hunt}

The Minnie Mouse Birthday Extravaganza continues!

When thinking about what we were going to get little missy for her birthday, James came up with the great idea of sending her on a treasure hunt! You see, here lately, Emma is always talking about going on an adventure. She loves walking around outside with me when I have my camera and trying to find things for me to photograph.

After much thought, we decided a simple map would be better than trying to come up with clues for a 5 year old so James set out to create the treasure map. In case you didn’t know, James is also very creative (he’s an artiste) so the map wasn’t just a simple little sketched out map. Ooooh no! He made the most awesome treasure map!

Treasure-MapThe flashlight & map were her first gifts to get her started on her hunt for the big final gift.

As you can see on the map, her first stop was their car where a set of binoculars was waiting for her.

The next stop was the refrigerator where a hid a Dora thermos.
After the refrigerator, it was off to the flower bed where we hid a net. That little boy is Tyler, the son of a friend of the family. The two of them are only a few months apart….I think their families have them betrothed. LOL
The two of them checked the map one more time to find out that they were off to Luke’s closet (Luke is her little brother, my nephew) where we had a magnifying glass.

After the magnifying glass, her last stop was the final gift. I didn’t get a good picture of her looking under her bed because she was just too excited and moving way too fast!

Here she is opening the big gift from us which was pillows and wall decor for her newly decorated zebra & hot pink room (yes, the 5 year old requested this stuff for her birthday). 


So there you have it. Sorry the pictures weren’t that great. As I said earlier, she was so excited and moving so fast that I had a hard time getting my settings on my camera changed each time we went from inside to outside and room to room.
