crazy campers

Here they are showing me some kind of game they learned which requires making a mask and pinching your cheek. I think they look hysterical. I am not sure my arms bend in that way.The highlights this week have included...canoeing, riding the zip line and jumping off into the lake, archery, shooting a BB gun, and climbing the rock wall (which Tally made it to the top of).

Did you catch that list??? My little sweet girls tried all of that stuff. And if you know my kids personally, I think you would agree that they have been brave. I am so proud of them. For trying new things, for participating, for jumping in and having fun.

when I went to 4-H camp (back in the 70's... ha! does that ever date me!) we sang a song called "Jr. Birdman" that used that mask... not sure if it's the same song or not but I remember it was just plain silly fun.

One of my favorite all-time photos is of John Paul II making that face.

I'm very proud of your girls. Wish there was something like that for my guys down here. I'm not surprised about Tally making it to the top of the rock wall- wasn't she the one that made it to the top of the Lighthouse that day?

Sounds like they went to cub scout camp!
I few years ago I went with my oldest to cub scout camp (as a leader) and I got to do all those things!
Good for them... It's So fun to do things you never would do normally!

What a hoot! Sounds like they had a wonderful time and so many memories made that someday they will share with their kids.
Zip line sounds FUN!!!

Hey, they could shoot BB guns with "the cousins". So glad they had a fun time. I am sure it was a highlight of the summer.

Yes, I tried. My arms do not bend that way. Looks like fun though.

What fun, I love the BB Gun : ) I started shooting it as a girl and I am still at it. Your girls sound like so much fun ~

That sounds like so much fun!! That is wonderful that they are trying new things. I feel like my kids are scared of a lot, so I hope they grow out of that.
