Labor Day Weekend ~ 2017

 

I know, I know,

I KNOW!

I’m late with this post.

Sigh.  That’s because I get so sad every time look at the Labor Day photos.

It was the last recreation schedule for 2017.  But my little campers didn’t let that get them down. They came prepared to celebrate!

 

They wore their red, white and blue holiday best!

Especially for the Pots and Pans parade on Saturday.  They decorated bikes, and wagons and helmets and each other!

I got to carry the flag in the Pots and Pans parade!

(I looooooove carrying the flag)

I think Ben’s a little jealous that I have that special job.

Debbie gave out whistles and we made tons and tons of noise with our friends!

As we wound our way around the campground, we were telling everyone to “Come out and play!”

How could they sleep in when there was so much to do??  All our favorite activities were jammed into one fun filled weekend.

“What activities?” you say?

I thought you’d never ask!  We had bocci, a scavenger hunt, water balloon slingshot, bubble play, adult bingo, candy bar bingo, a tie dye activity . . .

and we made our own lanterns, too.

There were lots of ribbons to be won, some of my little campers have been collecting them for years and years.

And of course we had a hayride!  We waved our flags and sang songs . . .

Then on Sunday, I woke up to rain.

“Oh no!” I thought. “What will my little campers do??”  I ran to the rec hall and found them making lobsters and lobster buoys!

Aren’t they awesome??

I shouldn’t have worried, because Debbie knows just what to do. She kept all the kids inside the rec hall to play games like bowling and minute to win-its, and have snacks and hang out.

Sadly, there was no recreation on Monday, but Tami and David host a special  dinner just for seasonal campers to thank them for staying with us this year . . .

Lobster and steak, with pot luck appetizers, dishes and desserts.

Yum!

Wait a minuuuuuuuute . . . those aren’t the lobsters my little campers made, are they??

It’s always such a nice way to end the summer . . .

just the way it started . . . with good company!
