Wedndesday Activities from J and F Continued . . .

Wednesday afternoon at Joni and Friends brought a menagerie of animals.

Chad was thrilled.

Katya?? Not so much.

She chose to watch from afar at first.

Gradually, she did edge a little closer.

Having Daddy hold her helped too.

Chad had a blast with Ashley, his STM, helping supervise him.

So many adorable animals to feed!

Katya retreated further away when she needed to.

And Kristina was thrilled she could ride horse again! She's gotten to do that quite a few times this summer, and is getting much better at it as a result.

For supper, the adults were whisked away to an amazing outdoor supper in a secluded glen in the woods until we were rained out! That was really sad, as the setting was AMAZING and I had wanted to walk with Paul on the paths around it until the torrential down pour started! Ah well. Maybe another year.

Meanwhile, the children enjoyed playing. Chad made friends with a couple of great boys there and they were always getting together to play tag or ball.

 Katya tried her hand with the floating duckies.

And then later in the evening, we all got together to work out to action songs! Katya got to borrow someone else's head phones and enjoyed her time greatly!

It was an action packed, fun evening, and it did my Mommy heart SOO much good to see even Charity frolicking and having fun with the other teens! Unfortunately, since she was the one taking the photos, the only "photos" I have of her having fun are in my mind . . .

And finally, tired and happy, we again all went to bed so we could be ready for the last full day of camp. (Sniff.)
