Camp Hunt 2009

The kids and I spent the third week in July at Camp Hunt. The week went by insanely fast. So fast that few pictures were taken, but that's ok since I took plenty last week when we went to the lake for the week.

Lily and I spent some time berry picking. We actually only picked one but we spent a lot of time looking at the berries and daring the other to try and pick one without getting stuck by a thorn.

Lily spent the majority of her time drawing or watching videos. She did make friends with another four year old but since he was a boy they could not be best friends. He was interested in watching Strawberry Shortcake with her over and over and over and over and over so she should grab him now before he figures out how bossy she is. At one point she told me that she liked playing with him because he listened to her. And she didn't mean it in that "he's a great listener" type of way but more of a "he does what I tell him to do" type of way.

Kristen and I spent most of the week telling Jamie - NO TOUCHING! Maddie and Ruthie are not big on being hugged, tickled, pushed, or shoved. Go figure. So Jamison picked up on that pretty quickly and tried to tackle them whenever he could just to hear them scream. And they didn't let him down. Here he is pushing his limit by gently poking Maddie's tummy. She did not appreciate it.

Since the camp pool is only open for two hours in the afternoon and it's the same two hours as naptime for the three toddlers, I invested in a $10 slip n slide from Target. They were not sure what to do with it. The next week, at the lake, we brought it out again and it was a bigger hit.

Jamison thought it was a water fountain.
Lily thought it was a catwalk. I'm not sure what show she was playing in her head when she walked down it but at least she's confident.

I am so glad you had fun! E and J only know what to do with slip n slides bc they have older siblings/figures that show them how it's done. They still walk up and down it more though.

I love your family picture in the previous post! Can't wait to see you in Nov!!!
