We gave B a BB gun last year. A Red Rider BB Gun. He loves using it but we don't have a lot of time to devote to it while we are home. We brought it along to camp & set up some targets. As long as we kept an eye on the dog & the other two boys, we let him have free rain on target practicing. He's getting really good with it. He even posed for this photo.
The window on the "2nd floor" is actually to a loft. This is where everyone sleeps. There is a double bed, two single beds & an army cot so just enough room for all of us. J slept on the army cot right next to the double bed. The other two boys each had their own bed. Each bed (minus the cot) has an air mattress on it. It's not too bad to sleep, but I just couldn't comfortable either of the nights we were there. I'm not sure if it was too cold, the bed too soft, or there was simply too much snoring. :-) I felt a bit like Goldilocks - nothing felt "just right." Although, the two hour nap I took on Saturday might have fit in that category!
This is one of the projects my hubby did. He cut up an old tree that had fallen down on the path to the outhouse. The path is really muddy & can get really bad in the spring & fall when there is more water on the ground. You have to wear boots to head out that way to the necessary. He built this wooden stepping path & it worked wonderfully! Now you can go out in your slippers & not worry about it. Even J was able to walk out & back with little difficulty - he just needed a steadying hand to hold.
B seems to be thinking strategy here.
I taught the boys to play Yahtzee while we were there. N LOVED it & he even won two out of three games. LOL That just made him want to play it more.
Yup! Read & 'em & weep boys! Ha!
After we put the boys to bed - earlier than we had the previous night - we headed down to the dock to enjoy the sunset. My hubby took this self-portrait of us together.
