pine cove day 2

We got some swinging time in Monday morning!

high flyin’ ella!

In the afternoon, we had free time. James and I signed up for the ‘Superman Swing’ at the ropes course. (You had to be over age 12.)  I volunteered to go first, (little known fact: I am an adrenaline junkie but have not had many chances since becoming a mom!)

all harnessed up-NOT COMFORTABLE!
posing like Superman before the freefall!  😉

To explain how this ‘swing’ works, I will have to show you the picture I took of James because I got a good angle of how high up they put you. (Estimation about 35 feet high)

Here I am free falling!
I’m swinging in the trees free as a bird!

James swinging in the trees…I wonder why his arms aren’t spread out free as a bird…
Looks like he’s having fun, but you can see he’s holding something… 

Here he is being taken down and you can only imagine how much pain he is in because of the tight harness!  And I thought I was uncomfortable…poor guy!        

Monday night was a theme night and our theme that night was “Great Scot!” and we were supposed to wear lots of plaid. Warning: this next picture goes against every grain in my well-being.

We were supposed to mix and match and clash-the sillier

the better!  This is the best I could do.

I know I have officially engrained Rilyn with my OCD in fashion because when I took out the red, white, and blue dress for her to wear she stared at it for awhile and then said, “Is it still July? Oh, ok, I guess I can wear this dress. But NOT in August, ok, mom?” 😉
Monday night we played games in the field that were supposed to be “Scottish”!

we had war paint because we were in teams

The pretty girl behind Ella is “Spirit Fingers”. She was our assigned counselor this past week and took care of my girls and loved on us! She is super sweet!

James participated in the dad tug of war.  He was the anchor, but unfortunately wore

flip flops.  So as you can guess, they didn’t win. 

My photography business!
