Family Camp 2- IRBC

Family Camp at IRBC is super Awesome!  
You have got to try it. :)

Now check out some of our fun filled activities.  
Click the links to see pictures from that event/activity/fun time! :)

Marshmallow Guns....Monkey got to play in a marshmallow gun war first and then for one of the crafts we signed him up to make one!  Now he can play at home.  He loves it.  It's definitely a great OUTDOOR toy!  Click the link to see pictures.

Pool Time!  
The weather this year was superb!  I don't think we could have asked for nicer weather.  It was not to unbearable, yet warm enough that the pool wasn't like ice water!  That was super refreshing! Bear went down the slide into the pool for the first time this year.  Last year he was learning how to swim on his own with floaties of course.  He still has the floaties but is brave and doing so great!  Monkey went off the diving board this year for the first time.  He is like a fish out of water!  Click the link to see pictures.

Kids Activity Time. (Panning for Gold)
Since the theme for family camp this year was a western theme.  They had a panning for gold game for the kids.  1000 pennies were buried in the volley ball sand.  So we had a good time digging and and panning for pennies!  Click the link to see pictures.

Kids Favorites
There were a few things that were the kids favorites activities.  Carpetball, Gaga Ball, Playing at the playground, at the ball courts, and of course buying snacks from the Snack Shack!   Click the link to see pictures.

Fourth of July!
We go to Family Camp the week of the Fourth of July, every year for the last 4 years anyway.  And we plan on keeping it that way.  We decided to go to the Clear Lake parade this year.  It was nice and hot, and a great time!  It's not quite the fourth of July without a parade right?!  They put on a pretty good parade too.  Click the link to see pictures.

Hay Ride!
The first night they have supplies available to make smore's and they do a hay ride!  What fun! :)  The kids enjoy it anyway.  I think the hay is rather uncomfortable to sit on.  But it sure was a nice evening.

Zip Line!
We did the Zip line this year again!  Of course!  I think it is great.  It's quite the work out to get up there, but once you do it's a super great ride all the way down!  Click the link to see pictures.

Cowboy Bingo.
The boys got to play bingo for the first time.  This was the family fun game that they always do on Wednesday nights.  They had some games where people got called up on stage to do stuff.  TJ was called up to use a marshmallow gun to knock some pop bottles off a tray.  He was bummed that he didn't win.  Click the link to see pictures.

On the Lake.
There were some awesome views on the lake this year.  And of course the children and other people than me I guess enjoyed some of the lake activities.  The kids went on a boat ride with grandma and grandpa.  The boys even got to drive the boat for a little while.  They loved that!  They also did bumper boats.  Monkey is super excited for next year when he's 8 and old enough to do the blob!  I'm not looking forward to him doing that, however. :) lol   Click the link to see pictures.

This was the first year that we did tie-dye shirts.  I think I'd like to make one next year.  Now that I know what I'm doing anyway.  And a word of advice, even if you are just helping you still want gloves and an apron....cuz your *a-hem* 4 year old* might 'accidentally' spray the non-removable dye on your clothing! :)  Click the link to see pictures.

This is on the last full day every year.  The kids love it because we are all in the same spot so they can run around to all the different games and such that is there, playing them all and doing whatever they want!  Always a bitter sweet times, yet it's on the last day so it means camp is almost over! Boo.  Good times, great fun. :)  Click the link to see pictures.

We had the priveledge of having TJ's sister, her husband and 2 little girls stay in our cabin with us.  It was mucho fun!  I'm glad they could be there.

 This one's for you Grandma!
