Summer Camp 2014

Although the kids are too young to attend overnight summer camps, all three had the opportunity to participate in day camp this past week.

Allie and Zach had a great time at our church's day camp...with Water Wednesday, crafts, old camp songs (like the songs Ben and I sang at summer camp when we were kids), friends, and tons of games, they were a little sad to wake up this morning with no more camp left to attend. 

During the afternoons this past week, Olivia was excited to attend Princess Dance Camp at the local dance school.  Making new friends, learning princess dances, creating crafts (crowns, Olaf the snowman, a bow and arrow), and snacking on princess treats were some of the many highlights of Olivia's week.  Each day featured a different princess that the girls could dress up to resemble (Sophia the First, Anna/Elsa from Frozen, Merida from Brave) and without a doubt Frozen day became the most favorite.  Likewise, Olivia was sad to see the end of Princess Camp yesterday.

Super excited for the first day of camp!

To celebrate the end of a fun week, we all went out for Fro-Yo at Orange Leaf last night where Zach was delighted to discover they had PISTACHIO ICE CREAM (which, honestly wouldn't mean much to you unless you've seen Cars 2 and remember the part where Mater refers to pistachio ice cream...since then, it has been somewhat of an obsession).  The rest of us reveled in the goodness of frozen yogurt flavored to taste like Wedding Cake, Peanut Butter, White Chocolate/Brownie Batter, Snickerdoodle, Pineapple, Orange and Blackberry (and yes, they provide dividers so you can actually experience each one of these flavors separately, or if you are Ben, you just lump them all together and proclaim that Peanut Butter and Orange together is like the newest and best version of the Creamsicle).  Definitely a great end to a great summer week!
