So I started watching Survivor during its first season years and years ago. I have not missed a season since. It is one of my very favorite things. It didn’t take long for that love to wear off on my family. Seth, me and my four oldest watch it regularly. My littles also watch it when they can.
Well my girls thought it would be a great idea to have our own shortened version of Johnson Family Survivor. Seth and I acted in place of Jeff Probst by running the challenges and tribal council. The kids were one tribe, the Galang Tribe (stolen from a real season of Survivor). Challenges ranged from some hilarious food challenges, puzzles, memory games and more!
Planking…our first Survivor challenge. Ellie won immunity!

This was the first tribal council. Notice the fire ring. We got real technical.
Another immunity challenge was to see who could stack the most dominoes on their hand in one minute. Megan won!
This here is our jury. Notice the tears. Ellie was the most recent member voted off and she was pretty sad about it.
Megan and Drew were our two finalists who had to give their speeches to the jury.
Sole Survivor of Johnson Family Survivor: Megan! Lets be honest, does this surprise anyone? Over the past year or so Megan has gone back and watched EVERY past season of Survivor. She really is a pro and quite good at challenges and at speaking. I actually have a video of her speaking to the jury. Ask me about it sometime and I will show it to you. She deserved her win! 🙂
Megan’s Surf soccer club played in the President’s Cup in Mesquite, Nevada. Who wouldn’t look forward to heading down South where the warmer weather is waiting?! Well, believe it or not, the weather was awful. It rained, actually poured, most every day we were there! Yes, in the driest state, it rained. What luck!
Megan’s team ended up playing really well and making it to the semi-finals. Unfortunately they lost in a shoot-out in overtime. It was a hard-fought game and really fun to watch. Way to go Surf!
This year has been a weak ski year for our family, but we did manage to get one day where all of us (minus Meg) went to Alta Ski Resort for a little ski day. The weather was perfect and we had a blast!
BYU vs Pepperdine. We decided to take advantage of some free BYU boy’s basketball tickets and make a girl’s night of it. I love that my girls get excited to go to a basketball game – girls after my own heart!
