It was the craziest thing! And enclosed with the letter was a clue that started us on a great adventure that took us all over the house, to the library and the park, to neighbor’s yards, and even to a restaurant in Lehi. It was so fun to figure out the clues, and race off to see if we had figured out the mystery. In the end, the big reveal was that we – the Christensen family – are going to Thailand in November!

I think Everett was upset because he thought it was going to spell “Disneyland” instead of Thailand.

When Olivia found out, she just laughed and laughed and laughed. She thought it was a big joke.
