WELL, THERE IS ANOTHER ONE FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS.
THE CAMPOUT WAS A SUCCESS.
EVERYONE WENT HOME WITH TREATS AND TREASURES FROM THE TREASURE HUNT AND HOPEFULLY SOME FUN MEMORIES.
We did a craft.
Played some tag.
And more tag. Hmmmm, grandpa must have been tagged, he didn't move at all from the previous picture.
Poor Spencer couldn't figure out which way to go to catch his cousins. Darn tree anyway!
First clue on the treasure hunt.
It was getting dark so they needed to hurry.
It looks like Matthew just figured out the clue, he has that "ah-ha" look on his face.
Logan thought there might be some treasure on top of the trailer.
Finally, the treasure was found.
We dumped the whole treasure basket in the middle of the floor so they could take turns choosing from their prizes.
Posing and being silly.
It was a thumbs-up all around for the camp out.
Here is the mass of sleeping bags after a good nights sleep.
This is grandpa's hunting tent that they got to sleep in.
The unanimously chosen breakfast, doughnuts and hot cocoa.
Thank goodness we have a wonderful bakery close by.
Oh ya, on top of the camp out two of the moms stayed up until 3a.m. canning tomatoes and green beans.
Then today we all worked together to can more green beans and some peaches.
All in all we canned:
103 pints of green beans
27 quarts of tomatoes
53 quarts of peaches.
All I can say is,
I AM EXHAUSTED!!!
