Our children, if they had their way of it, would have swung the entire time that we were there. I think we averaged about four hours a day of swinging. Luckily, our friends’ children also love to swing – so we had company.
There were over 67 kids there. Holy cow. We were one of two families that are not interracial. You want diversity? Come to adoptive/foster family camp.
One night for the evening activity they hang a log from the ceiling, you sit facing your partner on the log (too high up for your feet to be on the ground) and you try to knock each other off with pillows. It’s a lot of fun. I did it with Bella, and we have pics, but they show her full face. She was almost too scared to get on, but she did, and she beat me!
Bella and Sylvie’s friend Banke. Tooooooo cute.
Getting popcorn at Western Night.

Painting rocks as souvenirs.
Sylvie and her stunt double, Davey.
Originally Bella was supposed to do the climbing wall, but decided she didn’t want to at the last minute, so I went up. The entire time I was climbing Sylvie screamed and cried “Mommy hold you!!”
brushing teeth together.
Sylvie ringing the dinner bell.
Deciding we should share my necklace. (We both wore it simultaneously most of the night).
Our girls with our friends’ girls. Left to right Sylvie, Gracey, Jaimes, Naomi, Bella, and Davey. Sylvie was not cooperating.
We have so many great pictures that I couldn’t put up because they have Bella’s face in them. Bummer. But great memories none the less.
