The Amazing Race: Adams Family Edition

In five short hours our family will embark on our summer vacation. Where are we going? Mr. John and I decided we should have an adventure in our very own backyard… The great state of California!

Our family LOVES The Amazing Race and we are always imagining who would do certain challenges and how we would react to the different tasks. Mr. John and I put together a series of challenges and clues for the kids to figure out all around the golden state.

The best part? The kids don’t have any idea this is happening! They are going to wake up in the morning to find an envelope with their first task, which is to pack a specific list of items and we will give them their first clue.

I’m so excited to start this adventure and to have fun with the kids! Have an AMAZING day!
