Amazing Race Party

Amazing Race party - Ask Anna

My project for this weekend was an Amazing Race party.   This weekend we celebrated my husband’s best friend’s 30th birthday!

They’ve been friends for over 15 years now!

 Our two families love the Amazing Race.

 We have a tradition that every Sunday night they come over, we make pizza and we watch the show.  It’s super fun and we always make it a competition to see which of us can guess the winners.

A few years ago Matt {my husband} and Billy {his best friend} sent in an audition tape for the Amazing Race.  Unfortunately they didn’t get accepted and they were super bummed.  So when Heather {Billy’s wife and my best friend} and I were trying to think up ideas for our husband’s 30th birthdays this year, she thought it would be fun to do an Amazing Race themed party for Billy’s birthday!

We have had so much fun planning it and scheming up challenges that they’d have to do.  Here are some pictures of the clues I made.

Here are some pictures of the party.  I have to give a big thank you to my friend Bethany for taking these great pictures!  I had my camera in my pocket all day but was too excited about the race to remember to use it. :)
They LOVED it!  They ended up winning the race too {which was not planned}.

Also a big thank you to for all of the great clue printouts!  The clues wouldn’t have looked as official without them.
