The little second cousins had lots of fun playing on a hill and in the woods right adjacent to our campsite. Silas really wanted to keep up to them!
Part of the hill included a spot that was perfect for sliding down and climbing back up. Grampa put 2 pegs up so they could grab on and scale the cliff easily.
Helayna's little speech was perfect -
"Ladies and Gentlemen - Boys and Girls -
Introducing - - - The Climbing Lady!!"
(all said in her best circus announcer's voice!)
Dish water bubbles are so intriguing!
Our niece, Chloe, is marvelous with the little ones! She made a fishing game, using an old fridge drawer, complete with a magnet that caught things. And then she shared lots of prizes with the kids - they were thrilled! Thanks so much, C!
When no one has a lighter, you start the barbecue this way - and hope for the best!
The burgers were great - thanks, T & I!
He loves tools!
Lots of visiting
Little Miss N was so tired she conked out right after supper.
There was a little kitchen time.
Bob's parents, the oldest campers in their 80's
and little A, the youngest camper at 10 months. It was definitely a multi-generational gathering!
Clean up duty - Andy's specialty, I think - he always does it cheerfully.
We rode bikes back and forth to the cabin where Bob's parents were staying.
And then later Mel went quadding for the very first time. He got right into it!!
Ian, Tyneille and Mel with Bob riding the rear guard - and acting as camera man.
And we even sang Happy Birthday and had cake for Heather, whose birthday will be later this week.
It was a great weekend, in a lovely spot - a very nice way to say "Merry Christmas"!
