Trying to get these posted up for friends to enjoy viewing!  We had a manhunt party on Friday.  In short, it is just a hide-n-seek party for older teens, in the dark, with flashlights and camo clothes. But, they also played cards and danced in the LR too.  Lots of fun.  Here are some highlights.

First batch of kids.  Three sisters and the neighbor.

Somebody wanted to kidnap our bunny Lulu.  Is it kidnapping if the bunny is a willing participant?

Jack loaded the smoker down with ribs and chicken. The other grill had corn on the cob.  The house oven had beans, plus all the cold sides in the frig. Feeding an army?

Through the big meal, the number of kids began to grow.  Jack lead them in some yard football, although it looks a little like a prayer meeting.

Then, a few more kids came and it was time to go over the rules and boundaries. Sadly, we had 6 cancellations. Boo.

Picking teammates by alternating feet, I think.

Hard to get a clear pick as night was falling and the kids were ready to go.  This is the best of 3.

Eventually, I joined them to walk the lot and street to check on kids.  I look mean but I really just baked 3 dozen chocolate cookies to hand out for that late-night sugar rush.

Awww, c'mon.  Get up and dance with the girls!  I have no idea how we went from manhunt to dance party, but it did.  I think it was too humid outside.

Everyone getting the sillies.
