My clan in their custom family crest shirts courtesy of Mormon Family Man. This was taken immediately after Talent Show night at the open air facility located directly behind the kids. Yep, they participated. What's their talent? Why singing and dancing to cheeseball songs, of course. They truly are MY children. They choreographed their own routine to "Octopus's Garden", and every time the song said something about an octopus they all lined up behind each other and flailed their arms around. Very amusing. Not better than the kids who re-enacted a scene from Monty Python and The Holy Grail, but still amusing.
Infidels minus one. My son Buster was too busy making beaded crafts surrounded by a circle of girls to bother with family photo time. I like this picture because it showcases the loveliness of the Texas Hill Country. We did see several bearded mountain goats during the week, but never while I had my camera with me, of course.
Melody and Boo Boo outside the Ranch House earning their daily bread and butter just by looking cute.
We competed as a family in an obstacle course of different tasks. Our best performance though, was shown in the unwrapping Hershey Kisses using only toothpicks event. We then had to spear and eat the Kiss. Chocolate, the great motivator.
Yes, this camp is a little slice of heaven on earth, but it also meant shaking out our sleeping bags and shoes every day to make sure scorpions and tarantulas hadn't nestled inside. Yes, we did actually see scorpions, tarantulas, and snakes, oh my!
