After our delish breakfast, the boys decided they wanted to check out the playground. Off they headed, as I wondered off with the dog behind them. The playground was not to far from our cabin, and the boys beat me there only by seconds. They played and climbed and pretended for about 45 minutes, and headed back to the cabin with going swimming on their minds.
They had lots of fun, and we all headed back to the cabin to explore the idea of taking a dip in the "heated" pool. All activities started at 10am, so we had some time to kill and prepared for the ice cold dip. I wasn't about to take that icy plunge, but I know if I was a 10 year old kid, I would have been right in there ready to go.
sat directly under the SUN...what little came out, shivering and holding beach towels over our chilled body.
Needless to say they all got in, but the swimming fun didn't last to long, and soon we were joined by a few other boys. I insisted that both my boys get warmed up with a hot shower and change before we headed back to the cabin for our next big adventure.
Working on being warm, we spent a little time in the cabin, I read while the boys played games. We had lunch and soon saw Tami's family at their site beginning to set up camp for themselves. I headed over and said my hello's. Then we walked down to Mary's trailer to get her moving again. I think we woke up her hubby, he had some bed head going on.
Having coffee at Mary's trailer.
Mary's boys eating lunch. Alex and Will, I think this is the only picture I got of Will the entire weekend and he has his hand over his face. Will and his dad Brian are home bodies and spent most of the weekend in their trailer. We did some warming up and game planning for the next big event of the day. CANDYBAR BINGO starts at 2pm, and we were so READY for it. Last year Mary's son Alex and my two boys took the sweep and all three of them won at least once and Ben scored the grand prize of 30 candy bars. We had a little time to kill and Tami and I decided it was after 12pm so we could take in a little of my Adults only juice, before we entertained the idea of candy bars.
My vodka and fruit punch concoction. It did the duty, and by the time we headed to BINGO, I was feeling nice and warm, a little silly too!
They called the wrong numbers all day. No one at our table won, and all three of the mom's had to sit down when they called 43 in the age Bingo game. We walked away LOOSERS, my BINGO boys finally broke their winning streak. (They decided then and there we were going again right before we left on Monday for one last chance at redemption).
We walked back feeling defeated and discussed what was next on the daily plan. I caught a picture of the geese on the pond as we walked by. The boys decided they wanted to check out the pedal cars and laser tag and off they went. Allie posed next to Yogi for me.
Entertaining themselves as they wait in line for laser tag. Allie does a split. The parents and I watch from the park benches and let the dogs go wild in the good dog park. We were all a little annoyed at the guy who let his dogs go reporting they were a "little" aggressive. Peanut wanted nothing to do with it.
When the final kill was made, we were still confused about who beat who. I guess there was no winners or losers just plain old fun. Mary and Brian took a stroll on a wooded path, while the rest of us headed back to home camp to refill drinks and make decisions about dinner. Mark headed up the hill, the boys got their Birthday Boo Boo club gifts; Gavin got a growing washcloth with Boo Boo on it, and Ben picked out a Boo Boo yoyo. We had hotdogs for dinner, Mark built a fire and we invited the friends over for some campfire fun. The boys hid in the cabin loft playing games. I am thinking next trip we are not bringing the x-box.
We kept the fire going and Allen, (an eagle scout) told us we had no dignity by sleeping in a cabin. I was fine with that. Cold is COLD no matter what the dignity. Having had enough etho in my system and a nice warm cabin to crash in, we all fell asleep and the day was done. Plan was to wake up early and head to Niagara Fall's tomorrow. Better get some shut eye. Part Three to be presented tomorrow.
