When it rains…..at Camp DeeDee…….

Good thing we have been so busy with outside activities that our inside activities have been stacking up – because yesterday it rained A L L – D A Y!  While I was excited about the rain – the children were less than excited until we went to Hobby Lobby to pick up some more craft supplies.

Here are some photos from our inside adventures….

Is that make-up on the boy-child?  No we are face painting!

Many of the photos below are taken by the kiddos – with my big camera – with threats of bodily harm if they got face paint on my camera!  They used “live-mode” and did a very fine job with photography!

Now it was my turn to paint!

A mustache and a beard and you see that dot in the middle of my forehead?  A bullet hole!  Great!

Love it!

We also tried painting flip flops, paint did not work so well, next time we will try markers.  At least 3 washings and a shower and we have most of the face paint off!

Mr. B learned a new move in Karate yesterday – it is the Hip Throw!  Lots of fun!  Today I think we will tie-dye and go ice-skating!

What will you do on a perfect summer day!
