camp crashing

So my dad turned the big 7-0 this year (seems like yesterday I was sitting in his lap singing happy 45th birthday to him) and our present to him was to take part in the pre-OmaOpa camp shenanigans. Our entire immediate family was there which adds up to 20(!). My parents run a camp for the oldest grandkids (you must be 5 and potty-trained to attend) for a week. This year's theme was 'the Amazing Race' so the kids had many challenges to face. The oldest two even got to *drive* with Opa towards the end of the camp. I can't believe I have a niece and nephew old enough to drive.

Hudson loved meeting his closest cousin A~ and they had fun playing next to one another mostly A~ is 7 months Hudson's senior...which isn't all that much unless you are 19 months and 26 months. A~ can speak in sentences. Hudson can intonate as if he is speaking in sentences although he does not use real words. A~ is potty-trained. Hudson is still in diapers. Two years from now, 7 months won't seem that big of a difference. Right now it's like light years :).

At all OmaOpa camps, there is the line-up of all the grand kids. Yes that is my kid running towards the adults trying to keep the youngest two smiling...

It was a fun time to see everyone. Hudson was a little sick and not the easiest on the plane (cars are still more fun when you are pointing at them from the side walk rather than riding in them), but it was a good time by all!
