Friday night was the Road Rally. Thankfully Amy's family does lots of fun stuff and I was able to copy most of their ideas :) It was a huge help LOL. We split into teams and visited places that were some what meaningful to Keith's family. Everyone seemed to enjoy this. Afterwards we BBQ'd and called it a night.
Saturday afternoon we did a combination of Fear Factor/Survior (another copied idea!), the Price is Right, followed by an Iron Chef competition (again with the copying!). I thought the Iron Chef turned out to be one of the most fun. Each team had to make at least 3 dishes. An appetizer, salad and a side. We had some over achievers who did more dishes. They were judged on taste as well as creativity and presentation. I was so impressed with what the teams came up with! They each had a bag full of the same groceries and they all came up with something different. And yummy! Afterwards we ate the dishes as well as some FANTASTIC smoked pork I had my dad cater. He also did the dessert. This was his and Amy's second year joining us for the Smith Family Reunion LOL. (He did our family pictures the previous year.) Since they were coming to bring the dinner, I had him and Amy judge. If you know the Smith's there must be a clear winner for each game. And I thought I was competitive!
Sunday we had treats and a short FHE where we wrapped it all up and I breathed a humongous sigh of relief. It was good and I appreciated everyone participating and being cheerful, but I was sure glad it was over. :) It was a great year and can't wait for next year when I'm not in charge!
