Camp Gramma 2013

Each year my parents put on "Camp Gramma"! It is an organized 3 days of fun at Grandpa and Grandma's house in the back yard, along with a lot of planned activities! The boys and older girls stayed in tents and Gramma and the little girls got the air conditioned play house! My parents always have t-shirts made for all the "campers" with their names on them...

Meal time is usually outdoors. There are tables for every size!

The four older girls...

It has been a tradition for years that we got to the bridge that goes over the highway and the kids love to get the semis honking at them. This year there was a brand new bridge as the old one was torn down.

This year was also the first annual "Camp Gramma Fun Run" Complete with medals for all the kids! The kids all did so great! Some were a little more competitive than others...

I ran with Raegan and in spite of her begging to be carried the last half mile or so she finished without me picking her up. She was pretty happy to get her medal!

Ethan loved it too!

A family that goes to my parents church had us out to their land for an afternoon. They had scavenger hunt games, a huge wonderful meal and lesson and a bonfire with smores! All these city slicker kids had a great time running around on the farm and this was the first year i didn't have one of my kids having major allergy problems while they were doing it so i was very thankful for that!!

Avery and Maggie

The kids could take their turn sleeping in the high treehouse with one of the older cousins each night. The kids love this hangout spot!!

Thank you once again Grandpa and Grandma for making another memorable summer for the kids at "Camp Gramma!"

*Trey was not in any pictures because he was not there, not because i neglected to take pictures of him. He was spending some quality time on vacation to Florida with another cousin and Grandpa and Grandma Seaba!
