Each team (Red, Blue and Green) was given a packet of information which included the following: (3) $1 bills, (18) Numbered envelopes with clues, (4) Sheets of blank white paper, (1) Green Crayon, (1) Brown Crayon, (1) Colored pencil.
We were instructed that upon the start of the game, we were to open the first envelope and complete the tasks in the order of the numbers on the envelopes. Let the games begin!

ME, because I have the cake. =)
My favorite task of the scavenger hunt was the clue where we were supposed to take the (3) $1 bills and buy something at World of Mirth for me for my birthday using "no more and no less". Everyone gave a valiant effort trying to get as close to $3 as possible... until my team realized they might let us get a Gift Certificate which they did! Whoot!
We all had a blast with the hunt, and Kenney and Michelle let us all know that they wanted one created by one of us so that they can participate in it too. So, Kenney's birthday is coming up in September, and I think I will have to try my hand in creating my own version of the hunt. For those of you who weren't able to participate this time around, keep an eye out for more announcements to come as the time approaches for Kenney's birthday (September 29).
