Camp Out Camp In

Last weekend we did an all out camp in for our family time. We got out the projector thingy and had a big screen movie. Grilled hot dogs, and had fondue S'Mores for dessert. The best part, snuggling in the sleepings bags during the movie. The boys had a blast...we will definitely do this more often.

More on our mini-vacation

Suzu (Susan) has a dog house under the stairs that was specially made for her dog Noel. The boys think it is the greatest place to play. It kept the occupied alot! We even made dog names for them Ethan - "Chopper" and Graham - "Skippy." Amazing how a little cubby with an iron gate can keeps boys busy.

We spent most of our time at the clubhouse pool. The boys perfected their lifeguard run into the water, ha ha ha. Played lots of submarine with Paul, and just had plain ol' fun.

Then...POP! Maybe the swinging wasn't the best idea. I knew immediately from Graham's cry his arm popped out of socket. I know this because I did the same thing to my little brother at the same age, but he had to have a cast. Graham would not move his arm and cried everytime we came near it. We napped him and then off to an urgent care clinic. Doesn't he have the best pitiful face?

At the clinic the NP was quickly able to pop it right back in. Paul could hear Graham screaming in the waiting room. Within a minute he was moving it and saying he was all better. Very thankful it was not much worse.

Susan, thank you for opening your home to us and letting us enjoy a few days away from our life.
