 sunday after church. i loaded up the van and took my crew to halifax for the week. it was the annual kid camp. next yr joey will be old enough to attend her class! 
 quinn was busy working on his own kids camp.  quinn put on his own, it was a hoot. he had decorations all over the house. great job quinn. this was a water fall

 exploring the water and rocks
 another morning another park. my joey and i
 i tried to do an activity with the kids.  we attempted paper mache masks.  it was too humid and they didnt turn out BUT we kept busy for an hr
 then the girls made a garden, they spent 2 afternoons working on this.  digging plants and weeds up from the woods and planting them in their garden

 i love the view from my sister's walk way/balcony.  its beautiful!

so the big event of the week was quinn's own dvbs/kids camp.  quinn put on his own dvbs.  from decorations, registrations, draws, snacks, songs, lessons, crafts and more.  and then INVITED a bunch of kids to come. haha.  we had it on tues and papa ordered pizza for us after...

nate and charlie working the registrations table
 the kids waiting for more kids to arrive
 more kids...
 quinn leading worship/welcome and story
 crafts time!  quinn did a great job and it was fun to watch.  but i gotta say, i was glad there was only 1 afternoon and not the whole week...
 this cracked me up.  its the door sign for my room that mom and dad had made at the mall in calgary beside wolcoo and the slushy place. haha  after cry got married it went with her, she put it on the doors of all the spare bedrooms where she lived over the yrs.  and its finally back in its rightful place on my room's door. hahaha

 and more kids
 wed we went back to the beach. more dirt, water and sand
 but i did get to go home to a great fish dinner, thanks dad!
