Right as the sun set, the lights went out!! Thankfully the hubby had put the bake potatoes in the oven 45 minutes prior so they were good to go. We finished up on the BBQ with the steaks for the carnivores in the group. It actually turned out being really fun, we went on a scavenger hunt for candles. And we found a flash light for each of us.
A few things I learned about black outs:
six year olds and candles don’t go well together
one should keep matches near ones candles
slicing stuff for salads in tricky in candle light
black outs make already hyper kids even more HYPER!!!
large gin and tonics help with that one
holding a flash light under your chin in the kitchen window scares the hell out of the neighbor kids
