The "Champion"...

The highlight of our fun weekend at the lake over Labor Day was the "First Annual Labor Day Olympics!" There were participants from all 6 cabins in Jamie and John's "cabin neighborhood." We had 18 teams and 10 events. Some of the events:

*chipping the golf ball into the center of the floating inner tube
*bolo ball (or Hillbilly golf) see below:
*kayak race
*water balloon toss
*marshmallow on a spoon race
And....others, too numerous to mention (plus, I can't remember!!) :0) So, after the Olympics they added up each team's points and awarded 3 medals---gold, silver and bronze. Then the three teams with the most points had to compete in "The Amazing Race" to and follow directions and find clues that would lead them to the TROPHY!

"A" was paired with one of the three college boys at the lake--Jamie was also on their team--and they "rocked" as "A" would say!!! They won the Silver medal and also won The Amazing Race!! He was SOOOOOOO excited, he actually slept with this trophy!!!
What a FUN weekend for the kids, and us "old folks" too!! :0) We are already looking forward to the "2nd annual" next year!
