GRAMMA CAMP

Last week was" Gramma Camp" at our house. We have the two granddaughters spend a week with us and we plan daily activities. I'm always surprised at just how EXCITED the girls are each year in anticipation of this fun week! It seems to be one of the highlights of their summer! And I always thought I had the most fun! Each year we have a theme and this year's theme was a Girly-Girl Camp, meaning we did a lot of "girly" things. We had a great time and made many memories. Grampa is my assistant so he does some of the activities with us but this year, being Girly stuff and all, he spent some time golfing instead. Here are a few photos of our week:

Activities included eating at a fancy restaurant, going to a Melodrama, baking and having a "Garden Party", having a spa morning, working on cross stitch projects, painting pottery at Color Me Mine, having a movie night, making vision boards and setting goals for their "Best School Year Yet" along with shopping for school clothes,  making a book of all the week's activities on Shutterfly and more fun too numerous to mention! It's really a week packed with fun, learning new things, and experiencing different activities along with lots of laughs and memories!

I highly recommend this to all grandparents!
