Family Camp Fun

This past weekend we went with 85 other families from our church to Camp Laurel in Maine. it was a great experience. Each family has their own cabin, complete with bunk beds, electricity, bathrooms, and no privacy (lots of windows without any curtains!) All our meals were prepared by the camp staff and we had great food. Mostly it was camp food, but it was great because it was made for us!

The kids. Ethan, Sydney, Simon and Isaac.

SJ had a lot of fun. We did kayaking, canoeing, swimming, slip and slide, and sand play. SJ enjoyed having friends Ethan and Isaac, Clover and Simon, and Isabella and Victoria as neighbors. We also got to met other families from our church that live in Arlington (which is where we are moving next year. More on this in a post later to come.) We also had large group meetings with music and songs where SJ liked to dance around in the middle of the gym floor while the adults stood in the bleachers. (Hopefully we can get a video of this up soon. It's really cute!)

SJ went 3 straight days without a nap. The first day we tried for about an hour to get her to fall asleep, but it was no use. You can lead a toddler to a bed, but you can't force her to sleep! So, the subsequent days we didn't even try. The last day we were there SJ's sleep deprivation came to a head and she had about 3 huge meltdowns before we left camp. She took a great 2 hour nap on the drive home and then was much happier!

SJ is cute as a button in these photos. I love the one with SJ and the boys on the dock. She looks so fearless!
