See, we don't do sleepovers anymore and it is a huge treat when someone stays over, special occasions only. Bailee was a little upset that K was here and she couldn't have a friend stay.

Then I got a pin. Soo cool!
We all gave the archery a try. We found out that I'm the hunter. Of the five arrows three of mine hit the board, not necessarily the target. Brian had two arrows that hit and Bailee one. Karlee and K also tried, not so good. We definitely would starve if we had to hunt for our food. Thank goodness we live in these times of electricity and grocery stores. Whew!

I have a friend that I cut and color her hair. Recently I found out that she does massages. I suggested we trade. She agreed!! I just got home from having a back massage. WOW!!! It was great. I now need to hurry off to bed since I'm already half asleep.

Then this morning I got a wild hair and called a friend to play at the park. I picked up donuts and sausage rolls. YUM!! I didn't tell the kids where we were going. I just told them to hurry and get dressed. We are going somewhere fun. They kept trying to guess. They had some really good ideas that would be fun. But they couldn't figure it out. And guess what? WE had fun!!

The picture on the right is Mason's that I blogged about last month. Kind of amazing that it's on a wall already!! The middle is Karlee's that she did in art class. It's a pastel and quite beautiful.
Bailee was feeling a little left out, so I told her I would put something of hers up if she put thought and time into it. She kind of frowned at the requirements. Brian and I both thought of her crocheting she does. She had barely finished making a few dish clothes from yarn that was Grandma Steel's. We all know the time crocheting takes, and talent. So up it went on the wall. I love how it all turned out.
He says "never want to forget things" all the time. Just last week at FHE we were passing around a paper for each individual and we would write something down about that person. We were about finished with reading what was on all the papers and Carson said, "Reading these papers makes my heart feel good." He is such a smart little boy. My family...that's what's priceless around here.

then first aid. The boys were given a prescription bottle that had a zip tie through it to attach to their neckerchief slide. They had alcohol, gauze bandage, and neosporin in it. Maybe more, I'm not sure.
These are all the bears and wolves after a long day at camp.
I know a week long of day camp for the leaders is a lot. I am soo grateful to all the individuals that put this all together and for the sacrifice of their time. Mason has loved every minute of it.

Saturday afternoon we played in the pool again. What can I say...that's what we do all summer long.
I don't know how many people know this, but my living room is a place where we sit and read books, listen to Karlee practice the piano, or relax. It rarely has lots and lots of toys in it (only Christmas time if the tree is in there). Today these five were playing a very fun game that's a scavenger hunt. There is a limited time to collect particular items around the house, if you find them then you can move forward on the board. By the end of the game this is what you get. A room full of odds and ends. Look close. Imagine my surprise when I walked in there and found this mess. Luckily the last round of the game everything is put back in it's place. Whew!! Thanks Grandma for being soo much fun.
