Well, camp ended on Saturday. There were 54 of us in the house for the week, and only some went home - including D... miss you D!!!! - and there's still like 30 of us here... so onto mini-camp now.
Saturday night Grandpa took all of us to see "Hancock" and then for pizza. Hancock was an interesting movie. Wouldn't recommend it for kids, but we didn't know that going into it. Oh well.
Monday found Uncle Bob taking a bunch of the kids, including Chad, to Magic Mountain. It was INCREDIBLY hot... and the lines were INCREDIBLY long... but Chad had a great time. He had never been there before, and is finally starting to appreciate roller coasters, so he loved every minute of it.
Monday night, 30 people were headed to the Dodger game. Dodgers' vs. Atlanta Braves, and the Dodgers' won! Yippee! Everyone had a great time... and I guess that when you buy 30 tickets at one time you are considered a group, so on the tickets it said "Huckvale Family Outing", and they even put it up on the big screen a bunch of times during the game. Everyone loved that!
Tuesday was a pool/hang out day. Our friend, Kathy Morrison, and her kids, Bailey, Shannon, McKenna and Evan, came over, as well as My Amanda, who I always enjoy seeing. We also lost 11 more of the family members on Tuesday. The house is getting more empty, but there are still a bunch of us here!
Wednesday Uncle Bob braved the amusement parks again. This time he took a group to Knott's Berry Farm. Luke went with him, and they all had a GREAT time! They had so much fun! It was much cooler, and much fewer people were there.
As well, Chad had his friend, Liam, come over. He's known Liam since the 1st grade, and although they don't talk that much during the year, every time they get together, it's like they've never been apart. What a great friendship they have!
Thursday was another hang at home day. Us women decided to work on our "savage tans" - yeah, right! - and basically just hung out at the pool, playing and having fun with the kids. Later in the day the kids decided to give us all pedicures with wonderful foot rubs which was very nice.
Friday was just a running around day. Picked up Liam again, did a bunch of errands, swam, played... and lost Bob and his kids. They headed back to Washington yesterday afternoon. Won't get there until sometime today, but they're on their way. And now it's Saturday, lost Susie this morning, so now it's just us and Christine and some of her kids and Jon and Nancy, but they all go home tomorrow. Chad and Luke are going over to Liam's house to play, and me and the girls are headed on a girl's day, going to the American Girl store at The Grove for a tea party. Will post pics later.
