Camp Runamuk Opens For Summer

Camp Runamuk is now open for the summer session!!
Yesterday was our first official day of camp.  The temperature was in the high 90's, and the pool was a refreshing 78 degrees.  There were diving contests.
Noodle races.
Crocodile wrestling.
Long jumping.
Raft racing.
 Swan diving.
The pool is open.  The summer is hot.  And the kids are having fun at Camp Runamuk!!!
 The fridge is stocked with cold Capri Suns.  The pantry is overflowing with fruit snacks and cookies.
The chickens are roaming.
The garden is growing.
Come on over.  We'll sit on the edge of pool with our feet in the cool water and sip iced tea.
It's summer time.  And I am ready!!!
XO  Kris

Hi Kris, I love these pics-so much fun at Nana's house. In fact, you made me realize I need to go to the store and get some treats cause half of my gang will be here today. I sure wish we lived closer-I'd love to come hang out with you.
Hugs to you, Noreen
