Mighty Muscles Camp!

A couple of weeks ago the grands and I headed to San Antonio for Mighty Muscles Camp.  My 2 grands were joined by a set of triplets and another grand for a total of 6 happy campers!  Mighty Muscles is a day camp and we would drop the kids off at 9:00 am (I must say that first morning was a little hard for me; my daughter-in-law had entrusted their care to me and what if something happened?)  and we would pick them up at 3:00.  Each day for 4 days they had a variety of activities that they did, including but not limited to, swimming, karate, dance, climbing a rock wall, tennis, arts and crafts.  When we would arrive to pick them, they were exhausted.  Somehow on the air-conditioned drive home they would gain a second wind.  Good thing we had lots of fun stuff for them to do in the off-camp hours.

My friends hosted all 6 children and 3 additional grandparents for a total of 5 adults.  This kids took over the quilt room.

A soccer tent provided a great indoor camping experience for the girls

And the boys had a small tent that we also set up indoors.

Swimming of course was a major activity (grandma’s know this will wear them out!)

We dropped them off the first day and they figured out how it all worked…..

Some of our evening activities included tie-dye, decorating cupcakes, making a snow globe and scrap booking……
