This past week has been especially tough on the family. Roger got hit with the flu on Sunday night and Family Day Monday and Tuesday. He was running a high fever for three days. The kids seemed to get it on the Tuesday with lower grade fevers themselves. Melody's had it for almost a week now and the cough is just relentless. Malcolm luckily got off with some minimal symptoms, but stayed home last Thursday as well. Both kids did manage to get through Friday as they didn't want to miss any Valentine's Day celebrations. With so many kids away I think festivities suffered anyway. As a special Valentine's Day surprise, Tracey and Roger put on a sort of hunt with a super big surprise at the end. They arranged a series of clues throughout the house with some small V-Day gifts along the way. Anyway, here's how the clues read:
We love you both
We think you're the best
Now search for a place
Where Obi can rest
Here you scrub a dub dub
Splash and get wet
It's one of your favorite places I bet
When this is on it makes lots of noise
And we have to be careful not to suck up the toys
This place is chilly and
Keeps our food icy
Ice cream lives here
But nothing too spicy
We sit here when it's time to eat
Now look for a clue under your seat
When the mail comes
It lands right here
The end of the hunt is now quite near
M&M we love you a lot,
But life would be better if you never fought
How about a trip with us and some friends
To a place where the fun never ends
Go to the computer room and find your last clue!
It's been a while
Can you come to our place
For some fun and a smile?
Love the other M&M
That's right folks, we're heading back to Disneyland for Spring Break.

The so called "dream team" is getting pretty good at these 'escape rooms'. They did one a few weeks back at a downtown location called "Smarty Pantz". They even made it out in half the allotted time. Lucky for them, they managed to win a free experience for next time. They solved the room at 21 minutes! It was an interesting experience with a better quality experience this time. They solved puzzles, worked together and solved the mystery. Apparently the next one is more of a murder mystery where they start out handcuffed!
