The Rest of Camping
Our week of camping flew by! A week isn't long enough. Every day was the most fun, and I'm already looking forward to next year.
The weather was perfect all week, and the beach was in prime condition for sunning and swimming.

Noah had a cut on his foot that he had to keep dry, but he still maintains his cool beach look with his hip scooter and new hat.
What are Lily and Hanna giggling at?
Mia's taking the waves head on!
Ways to beat the heat: George, Tina and Donna sitting in the shade
Margarita's with George and Edy! Cheers! And the fan is a nice touch too.
You can get out of the sun with a game of Pokemon, but you can't beat the heat- tough competition!
Jaime and Aiden
Aiden playing hana fuda.
The evenings were nice for fishing, until the mosquitos attacked!
With sunset comes the campfire; time to relax.
Could you get more relaxed than that?
He's loving that!
Hee hee! And so am I!! For only $3.50 Jaime rubs your back, feet and head, and for 50 cents more she'll do your hands too. What a deal!!
Bed time in the girls' tent.
Up early and it's foggy! Noah, Hanna, Robyn and Lily
Going to check how Yami's fishing is going.
Hanna and Noah on a foggy rock.

Mia is also very good at climbing rocks; and she likes the big ones!
Ripsticking has come a long way since last year; Robyn and Donna have mastered it. This is Robyn and Lily ripsticking in their pajamas.
You may be wondering how we keep the kids going all day long...

On Sunday we went boating with George and Edy through Seldens Creek.
What a nice way to end the weekend!
Lily would like to do it all over again... especially because she has to go back to school this week.

It's that time of year again! Hooray! We've all been anxiously awaiting the arrival of George's family for a nice long week of camping at Hammonasset! Early to bed on Satuday after such a long drive, gave everyone lots of energy on Sunday for FUN FUN FUN!

Twins Aiden and Mia eating fruit... from Canada.
Crab hunting in the muddy creek
Aiden stuck in the mud; everyone got stuck at one point.
Aiden got un-stuck, but not his shoes. Those are only socks under all that mud.
Splashing was very effective to wash off the mud.
Mia was the best splasher.
Hannah going for a blue crab.
Aiden and one of his crabs.
Noah with his crab.
Lily and Mia
Heading to the channel, where there is less mud.

Aiden humming to a snail to make it come out of his shell.
The group chanting "Om" to their snails. Donna says "It sounds like a yoga class..."
George is happy to be with his family.
