And so all three of us headed to camp. But before we went, we had the pleasure of hosting some of our best friends at our house a couple days before camp. They drove up from Georgia and they were going to camp as well. Our house was the perfect stop over point, and we just don't see them enough. My friend has two boys age 11 and 5, so pretty much the same age--perfect playmates. They were so happy to be together, and I was tickled to have one of my best friends around for a few days before camp.
Finally this past Sunday, we got all of us loaded up and we headed out. It was like a mom vacation for me and my friend--I mean, no dishes, no laundry, no cooking---what mom wouldn't consider that a vacation from "real life?" LOL. Unlike me, my friend was going to be working in field games, but she was happy with the chance to be outside all day long and see all the different dorms come through. I was happy and eager to meet my dorm ladies. I already knew my two teen assistant counselors, so knew I had a great staff.

My boys both had a lovely time too and have enjoyed telling me all about it! I am so glad we decided to send the littlest because he is full of information about his camp experience.

Friday gave me a chance to finally just relax...EXCEPT it was someone cute's birthday! So Thursday night after both boys were asleep, I did the traditional door decorations. I love to see their faces in the morning when they discover it.
It's so hard to believe that my baby turned six. The time has gone by too fast and age 6 seems so much older than age 5! Our friends left him a gift, so we started with that. Later that morning, Little Britches told me to keep him out of the bedroom while he (Little Britches) built him a LEGO tractor.
|Ooh. Perfect for a little boy|
|Giving thank you loves|
|"I got $6 because I am SIX!"|
Once we got all of that done, I just finally got caught up with the laundry and kitchen. I planned a special birthday dinner guided by the requests of Baby Britches--hamburgers, corn on the cob, mac n cheese, sparkling cider and...his special cupcakes!
|My measly attempt at The Flash cupcakes, was still well received|
Have a lovely rest of your weekend! I will be posting maybe twice tomorrow. I need to share at least one product or book review, and chat about what posts are coming up next week. I will give you a hint...it one of 5 DAYS OF...blog hops! So come back tomorrow!
