We had three rules this weekend...
1. We stay together.
2. No complaining/whining.
3. We have fun.
|The long wait, probably around 500 people attended the event|
|Row wasn't bothered one bit, and the game system stayed in the car|
|The climbing tower that Row wanted to climb, even though he scared of heights.|
|The first look at the parade field.|
|Opening flag ceremony.|
|The Archery Range|
|The instructional speech for the Archery belt loop.|
|Row, sad to have to wait for his turn, but excited to finally get on the range.|
|The BB gun belt loop speech|
|Pretty good shot huh?|
|A not-so-friendly game of checkers.|
I was schooled on a game of Mario checkers...as best as I can figure out, the lightning strike happens at the most advantageous time for Row. The Bowser checker was also a problem for me, as he seemed to kill all of my kings towards the end of the game. Row 3 - Dad 0.
|Dinner, not bad, but didn't leave hungry either.|
|Row did a great job of playing dominoes. I was really surprised and learned something new about him. He won this round, but didn't offer a repeat challenge though.|
|Reading inside our tent after the rain started to fall at about 10pm.|
I have a tent review in the works. We had a lot of rain, maybe about 5 inches inches from about 10pm until 5 am. I got very little sleep, due to the cramped conditions. At about 1:30 in the morning, it occurred to me that the Chinese have a torture system where the prisoner cannot straighten completely out. The tent was made in China. I had a good laugh, and made a mental note to post it on the blog.
|A little canopy at the apex of the tent to hold a light.|
|The morning walk to the mess hall.|
|A father and son walk for breakfast.|
