Camp Olivia

Kingston’s friend Olivia had her 7th birthday party out at the camp ground in Moss Park on the evening of February 3rd. It’s a bit of a drive out there so we thought Harbor might take a nap in the car since he had to miss it in order for us to leave on time. But first Kingston fell asleep, then Zekie, and finally Harbor. All three out for the count.

Kingston woke up as we drove into the park, but the other two we had to wake up when we got there. We stopped at the bathrooms first, which were by the playground, and then Zekie spent the next 30 minutes whining about how he wanted to go to the park. While he whined the rest of us greeted Olivia and her family and checked out how they had set up the campsite. Olivia and her sister and cousin were going to be staying the night after everyone else went home.

Once most of the guests arrived it was time for a scavenger hunt, complete with magnify glasses to really inspect what they found. At first Kingston and Zekie didn’t want to play, but after Harbor started off, they changed their minds. Jeremy took off with Harbor and Zekie and Kingston and I started looking. Kingston didn’t want to look for any of the easy items, mostly right under our feet, he wanted to look for a flower first (which there were none of). Eventually we met back up with Jeremy and the other boys and they took off while Harbor and I went exploring on our own.  He was so fun, holding the magnifying glass up to trees and leaves and logs on the ground, checking everything out, fearlessly walking deeper into the woods and through (not around) low lying tree branches. Hahaha. He kept turning around to me and saying “Come on Mommy. Come on Mommy” so I would keep following him. He was fascinated by bark and pulled a few pieces off before he found a nice big piece on the ground that he wanted to keep. Into the bag it went.

Before the boys finished collecting everything on the list it was time to eat. There were hotdogs, oranges, candy dipped pretzels, and a make your own trail mix section. After eating the kids took off for the playground for a little bit.

Then it was time for cake and presents before it got dark.

It got dark pretty fast during presents and then I started to feel a little stressed keeping track of everyone. They had smores supplies, so now there were a bunch of kids running around a fire with sharp sticks and it was dark so I couldn’t see well and Kingston was whining cause he wanted smores, but when we toasted the marshmallows he didn’t like it and wanted something different, and I was done at that point.

So we gathered everyone up and we said our goodbyes and headed home. Everyone got undressed in the laundry room once we got home and clothes went straight in the wash since we all smelled like campfire and I didn’t want that smell sticking around till I got to laundry.

Even with a few whiny moments it was still a fun party and the boys enjoyed being outside exploring with friends.

Veggie Tales: The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything

Zekie’s school had a movie showing after school. They showed the Veggie Tales Pirate movie on the big screen in the sanctuary. We stayed to watch it with his friends and made it about halfway through before the boys got bored and wanted to go. There were food characters, I think cheese puff things, that had faces and it was freaking Zekie out. LOL. So funny what does and doesn’t scare them.

Harbor’s First Haircut

Harbor we broke down and gave you your first haircut on January 26th. Overall you didn’t need it, you are actually very sparsely haired still, but you did have these two long curly wisps behind each ear and even though I didn’t want to cut them, it was looking a little silly. :( So we bid them farewell in hopes that maybe your hair is like a plant and you have to prune/trim it a little to make the rest come in and fill out. LOL

Firehouse Tour

You can never tour too many fire stations when your kids are little. At least that’s our current theory. 😛 January 16th, my mom’s group did a tour of the Longwood fire station which was one we hadn’t been to before. We saw where they eat and how they have three fridges and food cabinets so each shift has their own food space they can lock up so other shifts don’t steal their food, haha. We saw their bathrooms and bedrooms, patio, workout room, and laundry room. But of course the best part to the kids was seeing them get dressed in gear and checking out the fire truck and ambulance.

After getting firehats and stickers and bracelets, a group of us headed to Chick-fil-a for lunch and for the kids to play. And boy did they play hard! Kingston and Zekie were sweaty from all the running and climbing and sliding. They had the best time playing with their friends while us Moms somewhat got to chat, yea!

Uncle Bill and Aunt Liz Visit

Jeremy’s Uncle was in town celebrating an anniversary with his wife and they stopped by for dinner with Don & Terri and we joined in. I can’t remember the last time we saw them or if Kingston had met them before, but Zekie hadn’t and he was ready to make up for lost time. He was super chatty and wanted Uncle Bill to play with him right away. Not that Z is ever shy, but there was no hesitation at all and he wanted all their attention. Maybe he felt a “younger brother” bond with him, since Uncle Bill is Grandpa’s younger brother. 😛
