We just got home from a busy couple of days. We left Sunday to go down to Virginia to the camp ground that I grew up camping at. The kids loved it. We went on a nature walk and played on the playground. Marissa loved finding bugs and frogs! She found 4 little frogs and 1 big frog. She also "babysat" the guy at the campground's cat, Jack. She took this job very seriously as Jack kept trying to run away and climb a tree! We went to the pool and Marissa showed us all her tricks, going under water, flips and headstands. She loved swimming under the water. Christopher was very hesitant and did NOT want to get in past the step. I had to coax him in slowly. But once he realzied he could touch there was no stopping him. He was walking back and forth and even jumped in a couple of times(to Nana). He slowly started showing off, jumping and doing "tricks". We went back to the campsite and Christopher really liked helping nana start the fire. He thought that breaking the sticks and putting them in the fire ring was the coolest thing. We had the traditional hotdogs and hamburgers and then went on a hunt for sticks. They both found great marshmallow sticks and we made Smore's. Then it was time for bed. We went to King's Dominion on Monday. Got there as soon as it opened. The kids were so excited, Christopher has never been to a amusement park. There was one bad part. I got stung by a bee! As soon as we got there we were walking and I felt something in my hair so I went to get it out, well it was a bee. My thumb has been swollen since yesterday and it is itchy and sore. Marissa got her picture taken with Spongebob and Patrick, Angelica, and Scooby doo! Christopher didnt want to, but he did wave. Christopher didnt want to do much. We did make him go on a few rides but he wasnt happy about it. Both kids loved the wave pool. It was hard to get them out of it. We went on one water slide, but I was afraid Christopher was going to fall out so it wasnt too enjoyable. We spent the whole day there and were exahusted when we left, but everyone had a GREAT day. Even after being out in the sun all day the kids wanted to go swimming when we got back to the campground. We all had a great weekend and I am looking forward to going back to the campground with Mike for Labor Day weekend.
