The excitement all began on Thursday night with GAME NIGHT. At 8:00 they headed to Tilt in the mall and started the weekend off right. After bed time+using real money in the machines=Awesomeness!
They then headed to the MAC Game Room for a little more action.
Then off to bed after a little story time with Honey.
Friday was ANT Day. That's right an entire day all about ants. This was perfect for Ryan and Stacey. They had ants for breakfast, made a delicious ant snack, painted 2 ant crafts, had a science lesson on the anatomy of ants, counted, sorted and classified and also learned a scripture(Proverbs 30:25 about ants)!!!
Making edible play dough
Off to the park to gather rocks for their ant craft
Hard at work
Of course they had play time at the park too.
Painting their rocks to make a cool ant craft
Color time with Honey
Whew!!! During all that fun they were earning stickers for their behavior chart. They both filled it up in one day by talking kindly to on another, obeying, helping pick up and just being overall amazing children:-)! Since they filled their chart, it was off to Toys R Us to pick out a treat. Ryan chose a Bionacle and III chose a Goofy Pez.
Saturday was all about WATER. They had fun in the sun learning about water. They had a science experiment-sink or float, froze and thawed water, washed GP's truck and III's bike, played with water balls, water guns, enjoyed crafts, and swam.
Ryan said he loved shooting Ella (the dog) with a water gun. I thing that was a highlight of the day for him! They had lunch in the fort...
Painted with Popsicles,
Painted fish and made a sequin fish,
Cousin Camp ended with a trophy presentation (of course), and a promise that they would get to go again next year. Whoo-Hoo!!!!
