They really, really get into Labor Day Weekend!

They wear lots of red, white and blue and create Labor Day noisemakers at arts and crafts too . . .

When we gathered outside the store, Tami said, “Go wake everyone up!” And we did!!

We had so much fun walking the campground and making noise . . .

The weather was gorgeous all three days and we had so much to do ~ swim in the pool, kayak in the lake, loon and eagle watch, water balloon slingshot, arts and crafts twice, movie night, field games . . .

but my absolute favorites this weekend?  There were lots of them!

Bocci!

Have you ever played?  It’s a lot like horseshoes, but instead you roll balls and try to hit everyone out of the way to be closest to the little one . . .
