Camp Johnson

This year we decided to give Maddie a camping-themed birthday party. We had a great time! Maddie has made quite a lot of friends (all ages) since we moved here! Thanks to Laura Leach, we have photos from the evening...
I can't believe she's 4!!

Here are the kids decorating their wooden birdhouses! 
They got really into crafting with glitter glue, markers, and stickers.

Maddie is really into crafts lately...can you tell?!

Next we did a scavenger hunt! The kids each received a bag with 15 items they needed to find. Things like a creek rock, a stick for roasting marshmallows, trail mix, grizzly bear (gummy bear), high five from Maddie, etc.

Jesse helped Maddie find everything on the list.
It was so fun watching everyone run a round the yard!
Savannah cheered them on!

It was a pretty warm evening, so we needed to wet our whistle :)
Thanks to GiGi some kids ate dinner at our new picnic table. We had hot dogs, BBQ pork sandwiches, watermelon, potato salad, and chips.

Maddie and Tadum :)
Others ate in the tents we set up!
Papa fed Sissy
"Happy Birthday To You..."
For dessert we had "dirt cups" and s'mores.
Here are the kids firing it up!


The dads enjoyed themselves, too :)
Isaac really liked his s'more!
     What a fun-filled night we had!!
