Saturday night brought on the campfire and s’more time. Sadly, it only lasted about 30 minutes before the downpour started. But not before we got in a few marshmallows before then. (And special pics with the girls counselors Sara and Jayme).
The last night of camp was the closing ceremonies and dragon parade. The girls were so excited about the dragon parade, it’s all they talked about.
After many rounds of “are we there yet?” we arrived in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The girls were beyond relieved to be out of the car, and even more excited to be wearing their camp shirts!
A few hours later we met the girls counselors for the weekend. The weekend was filled with lots of fun things: crafts, story time, songs, exercise. And all things China.
During the afternoons we had free time. We attempted Chinese style painting, calligraphy and tai chi. And even braved the super cold pool one day.
to be continued….

the dark side. Wyatt loves a good villain. And Darth is is fave! Owning a Vader costume has been on his wish list for a very long time. And the day finally arrived! Naturally, he suited up the second he finished unwrapping his gifts. And not to be left out, Wilson needed to suit up. Representing the good side, of course. And a fun night of battles ensued. The perfect ending to Wyatt’s birthday.

Chris woke up with a raging case of strep throat on Wyatt’s birthday. So a few of our plans changed but I don’t think Wyatt noticed. Pancakes with sprinkles for breakfast. Lunch with Mimi and Poppy, and donuts. And gifts! Of course. All Star Wars, of course.
Dinner of Wyatt’s choice, pizza. And his long awaited Storm Trooper cake “with one oreo on top”. But the birthday boy was too busy with his gifts to enjoy cake. And as I tucked in my newest five year old I promised him cake for breakfast the next day. And he most definitely held me to my promise the next day!

Wilson was only going to be happy if his new glasses were green. Not a little green. ALOT green. After some googling we found out our eye place had these beauties already in stock. And Mister Wilson was thrilled! His new specs suit him perfectly! And the best news, they are indestructible!

Chris and Will had an afternoon together….and the activity was rock climbing. Given Will’s love of climbing trees lately this was perfect timing.
Will had a BLAST! And as he reached the top of every climb he’d look down and say “take my picture”. He couldn’t pick a favorite obstacle but I think where he “scaled large buildings” and jumped down was pretty high up on the list. We may have to look into climbing camp next year!
