My family (as in, my siblings + all the spouses + my parents) got together for a family home evening activity last night. My mom booked one of the rooms for those "get out games" things and I was actually pretty contemplative about it all. I've heard a lot of people talking about how "fun" it is, but I wasn't sure how I would like it because... well, I'm not a lot of people.

BUT, it ended up being really enjoyable. They set a timer for 45 minutes and we were locked up in a room and had to figure out how to get out of it within the time limit. This particular room was actually a 60's themed trailer parked in a random parking lot in Lehi (which kind of sketched me out at first). They don't give you any clues or hints (unless you ask for them) so you're kind of on your own to figure out how to get the key to unlock the door. 

Knowing my family, it was utter chaos the entire time. But the guy "officiating" the game was shocked at how fast we accomplished it. I guess we were the fastest group he'd ever seen escape (which was news to us because, like I said, it was madness in that little trailer). The little number in the bottom photo is the time we had remaining. 

Anyway, like I said, I had a lot of fun. If you ever get a chance to go with a fun group of people, I'd suggest doing it at least once. I mean, there's no harm in trying, right? (And I guess there's a deal for it on groupon right now? At least, that's what my mother says.)
