We did get a few bug bites at camp, but really our kids both got a bite from the camp bug. They both LOVE camp. Ali can't wait until next year when she can be "a real camper" (at Kinder camp with mom or dad). She is already asking when we will be going back to camp. We all loved meeting the staff and enjoying a wonderful week in the redwoods. A pictorial account of our week:
Ali wanted to eat marshmallows on a stick. She didn't want to roast them, she just wanted them on a stick. She was quite happy that it happened.
The beautiful redwoods.
Riding Balance Bikes. Ali loved the fact that you steer with your bum.
Hiking up to Big Tree. We did get to look around inside. It was pretty cool.
Searching for banana slugs was quite fun. One day, we found 10!
Daddy preparing to underdog.
Checking out the treehouse. Ali is trying to decide if she would like sleeping outside all week.
Josiah collected rocks. He was amazed at the abundance of rocks to be found.
Josiah's post camp injury. He fell as we were packing, which caused us to leave quickly. A ER trip and a little glue later and he is good to go. If you ask him to show you his "owie" he will show you the small cut on his hand. Not the head, the hand. The head wound doesn't phase him at all.
