A Store Clerk Signing the Scavenger Hunt List

On a trip down to Charleston for Christmas shopping on King St., my wife and I came up with a list, as the 5 kids watched videos in the back. We went to a restaurant for lunch, and announced the game - the kids were not at all excited about what we proposed, but went along with it. They had 1 hour, $5, (two teams) and they had to stay within certain boundaries, - we met at the record store where the winning team would pick out their own prize(s). - Well, it was a hit, the kids loved it, and we got an hour to shop alone. T
The shoppers were all very friendly and helpful. The kids were so excited about it, they wanted to bring friends in 2006. We took the best from the 2005 list, added some more goodies, added a "photo bonus", (for our records) and had some interesting calls coming in - We hope to make this a family tradition and move it to other cities as well. - Enjoy.

Note: You can see the "list" in the photo.
