What a great weekend!!
There was Bocci, bubbles, bug catchers and bug races!
There was Knot Tying, paper plane flying and paper cup making contests.
We tried our hand a lasso-ing
showed off our adventurer racing skills
and then lobbed some waterballoon bombs at targets!
there was even a clued treasure hunt with an archaeological dig for buried treasure at the end.
007 and Indiana Jones, move over! There’s some new Adventurers on the loose –
and they’re wicked good at it!
I had so much fun hanging out with my camping buddies
and giving high fives
and pretending to be a secret agent spy and adventurer
with our magnifying glasses
that I almost didn’t hear David say,
“Only one more hayride after this one.”
“You mean, one more hayride today, right?” I asked.
“Nope.” David shook his head. “Next weekend will be the last hayrides of the season.”
“WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT! The summer just started!”
“‘Fraid not, buddy. Next weekend is Labor Day. Don’t worry, there’s still campers for a few more weeks . . . you can go kayaking with Paula, fishing with Ben and Emily or play horseshoes with Mike . . . or even get a manhunt game started with Kate, Sam, Kayla and Matt. There’s just no hayrides or arts and crafts. or bubble play. Debbie and Bryant have to go back to school.”
I ran over to Debbie and Alex
and I ran over to Bryant too
“It’s true,” Debbie said. “Sorry, big guy.”
Bryant said, “But you know Maxx, Debbie and I have picked all our favorite stuff and loaded it into Labor Day Weekend for you and your friends.”
*sniffle* “Like what?” I asked, scuffing my hoof in the dirt.
Debbie hugged me. “Liiiiike, a Red, White and Blue Labor Day bike parade, and we’ll make noise makers and hats for it. There’s the waterballoon slingshot, watermelon seed spitting, egg games . . . ”
“Don’t forget relay races in the pool,” Bryant added, “capture the flag, storytime and a Ping Pong Tournament.”
“Tell him the best part!” Alex said. “Tell him what’s happening Saturday night!”
All together they said, “Candy Bar Bingo!”
“I can’t wait!”
