*We started by taking the kitties to the vet. Both of them weighed exactly 3 pounds 8 ounces. They actually walked right into the cat carrier when we brought it out and never cried at all in the car or when they got their shots. Weird cats. They actually contributed a lot to the craziness of the day by keeping us up all through the night with lots and lots of running and jumping and playing, including under our bed. Ugghhh!
|Gadzooks! That's a lot of boys!|
|The first place Ray took Adam was to the pool.|
They both were thrilled to pass the swimming test so they could go in the deep end!
|Next we were off to the shooting range. YIKES!|
BB guns. I was terrified!
This went against all of the anti-gun propaganda I've tried to fill them with for seven years.
They loved it.
|Fortunately I drafted some helpers at the archery station.|
I have no clue how to shoot those things!
Ray really had a good week at camp. I can't believe how many different activities he got to do! Fishing, creeking, BB guns, archery, boomerangs, swimming, woodworking, leather work, metal work, cooking over a fire, tall tales, sling shot.... Wow! He really wants to go back next year IF there are no thunderstorms. There were two scary days for him with storms this time.
*After we got home from the rodeo, we were thrilled to welcome one of Jon's sisters and her family (from Michigan) for a fun visit. We cooked out and visited and played and watched some of the Opening Ceremony for the Olympics.
|Cousins! So happy to see each other for a fun few days!|
|Ray really enjoyed playing "Opening Ceremony Bingo."|
