Mimi and the Scavenger Hunt-A Photo Story

7 Apr

Hi!

It’s springtime! There have been some warmer days lately, and there was plenty of sunshine this weekend, so to celebrate I decided to do a Mimi photo story! This week, Mimi and her friends went on a scavenger hunt…

IMG_2972“Is everyone with their teams?” Mimi asked when they ensembles on the grass. The six friends had split up into two teams of three: The Pink Bows with Mimi, Willow the Lamb, and Harold the Unicorn, and the Springtime Snuggles with Daisy Lou, Emma, and Sir Pugs A Lot. “Okay!” Mimi announced, ready to read the rules a loud. “There are five locations with clues and prizes! There are two clues at each spot, so only take the one for your team. Whoever gets to the final destination first wins!”

IMG_2988With that they all scrambled off to read the first clue with their teams. “Here’s the clue” Mimi handed a folded piece of paper to Willow, who read aloud. “You’ll find the next clue where the crown on the frog’s head sits.” The three stood there puzzled for a moment until Harold called out, “The frog prince garden statue!”

IMG_2996Daisy Lou’s team was already there, and Sir Pugs A Lot had grabbed one of the two papers hidden beneath the metal crown. “It says that the next clue is in the empty pit–what pit?” He wondered, as his teammates shrugged and started looking around.

IMG_2998Mimi’s team had worked out the clue and where sitting on top of the fire pit…well two of them. “Did you find it yet?” Mimi called down to Harold, who was searching the ground. “Uh-huh!” He yelled back, “It reads, ‘Your next clue is hidden among the grapes.” Mimi and Willow started pacing back and forth. “Umm, guys? How am I going to get back up?” Harold shouted.

IMG_3000Emma had figured out the clue was hidden in the grape-vine, but since there were no grapes yet, the clue was tucked between two high branches. The three started climbing loose vines in order to reach their paper. “Almost got it!” Emma exclaimed, reaching her hove out. “It says, “Climb the fence to spot the final clue…”

IMG_3005Minutes later, everyone was climbing the old fence in order to reach the final clue, which was in the middle of a bare bush. Harold the Unicorn was able to grab one of the papers, but the other flew flying away in the wind. “Oh no!” Mimi said, “Why don’t you just read it out loud, and then we’ll race to the prize!” Everybody agreed, so Harold opened the paper. “The prize is under the shower of flowers,” it read.

IMG_3019Suddenly it was a speeding foot race to the old watering can that had flowers in the top. Mimi managed to arrive first, and still breathing heavily, she was greeted with a full platter of delicious looking cupcakes. “Congrats!” The sign read, “You found the prize, and don’t forget to share.” Mimi nodded, and announced “Perfect!”

Happy Spring!
