Cape Cod Visit

My sister and her family are currently camping on Cape Cod with a friend and her son. After umpiring Monday night I headed to PTown for a quick vacation warm-up. I went armed with supplies for a project to do with the boys, who are now 9 and 7. Below are a few shots from our wonderful day together.

First step to the project was having the boys (Sassafras Mama's JT and my nephew D) draw pictures of what they like to do on 'The Cape'.

I don't have any in process pictures of the project, but both Sassafras Mama and the fabulous Shelley (D's mom) took a bunch, so you should expect to see them once they return to civilization.

Two of the six shirts we silk-screened. The blobs are the result of trying to silk-screen on a picnic table, without a flat surface. From my perspective the project was less than successful, but the boys pronounced them "awesome" which is all that really matters. The object between the trees is a tent, and the people on the right are speeding downhill on bicycles.

After we finished with the shirts we headed to the pool at my hotel. D spent most of the time on the pool deck.

JT, meanwhile, spent most of his time jumping off the edge trying to catch the ball D was throwing.

Check out the dimple!

We wrapped up the day with several games of Stratego. And Wednesday morning I headed back to reality.

Your contributions to the camp were a huge success. JT and I are wearing our t-shirts this morning!

Thanks for the very happy day.

Great shots, Aunt Chelle! Thanks again for gracing camp with your multi-talented self.
