|Six in the Hood||
As the guest began to arrive the "crazy balloon lady" (she dubbed herself that) from the VFW was waiting to make fun balloon art for all the kids to enjoy (and when I say kids, I mean me)!
After a bit of fun it was time head to the mess hall for lunch. I just love this picture of the J. family heading to the mess hall.
Day one was filled with fun and just getting to know one another at the ranch. The kids immediately took up with Mrs. Teri, she is a Child Life Expert and was in charge of the kid-o's and she took charge with grace and love! This woman is fantastic and I really wanted to bring her home with me! By the end of camp the kids (I'm talking about mine) didn't want to do anything with their parents, they just wanted to hang with fabulous Mrs. Teri.
Once we pried our children out or Mrs. Teri's arms we headed down to the beach.
Who would have thought we would have our own private beach in the middle of Mineral Wells, Texas?!
Back at the ranch the kids ran off with Mrs. Teri while the adults went off to listen to our first speaker. She was a fun and all about the couples (a marriage & relationship expert)...she had us play the game telephone, you know the game, we all played it as children...one person whispers a sentence into the next person's ear, and then it goes down the line of people and the last person says it out loud and 9 times out of ten it isn't anywhere close to the sentence it started out to be. Well, as adults we didn't do any better. She had guys against girls and if you can believe this, the guys won...they were better listeners than the girls. Whatever.
Next up we headed back to the mess hall for dinner!
It had already started happening, by this time the kids wanted a 'kids' table!
OH, and I forgot to mention CISCO gave every couple at Camp Better America a FLIP CAMCORDER!! That is what Hubby is playing with in this next picture!
The evening was filled with more fun, games, s'mores & just hanging by the campfire. What a great first day of camp!
