Grandma and Grandpa Camp

I don't say it lightly when I say we are BEYOND BLESSED to have not one set, but TWO sets of grandparents that WANT to take our kiddos for overnight Grandma and Grandpa camp.  In fact, when our original plans to travel to Israel fell through 9 days before our departure date (due to the border remaining closed because of COVID), we probably would have just cancelled the trip altogether if it weren't for the grandparents who were already excited to have our kids and unwilling to give up their special time with them - we are grateful :).  Grandma and Grandpa K took the kids for the first week of our trip, and did special things with them at their cabin in Wisconsin, and then met for lunch to do a hand-off to Grandma and Grandpa T who invited the kids to stay with them at their trailer on a lake in northern MN for the second week of our trip.  To say that the kids had a blast would be quite the understatement!  The LOVED it and were spoiled silly :-).

Week 1 - Grandma and Grandpa K Camp

Grandma and Grandpa K camp was filled with all sorts of fun including a tour of Crystal Cave, picking strawberries and making preserves, making birdhouses to keep at the cabin, touring a local zoo, swimming, tubing, eating favorite foods, making dinner over the fire, and playing with cousins!  Not to mention, July 1st, Larkyn's 7th birthday, fell in this week, so we were very grateful that Grandma and Grandpa K made it really special!  They filled her day with special decorations, special foods, go karting, mini golf, and even a lumberjack show!  In no particular order, here are some of the pictures Grandma K texted us while we were gone :).  Thank you Grandma and Grandpa K for making unforgettable memories with our kids and loving on them in such a huge way!

Week 2- Grandma and Grandpa T Camp

Grandma Grandpa Camp handoff occurred at a Culvers somewhere between the two camps :).  Then the kids began Grandma Grandpa Camp "part 2" with Grandma and Grandpa T!  They loved playing with the special toys Grandma has at the trailer, going tubing, playing at the sandbar, loving on the dogs, going geocaching, going biking, playing on the giant lily pad in the lake, playing with "cousin" Kopel, doing a giant puzzle, going go-karting/water boating, making t-shirts, going fishing, and more!  Furthermore, Larkyn got a birthday party, where they decorated the trailer, invited Kopel and GeeGee Sandy to celebrate, had a piƱata, and had an Elsa and Anna DQ cake!   Larkyn sure had the most amazing 7th birthday!!!!  In no particular order, here are some of the pictures Grandma and Grandpa T sent us while we were on our trip.  Thank you so much Grandma and Grandpa T, for loving on our kiddos so much and making such fantastic memories with them!

We love you and are so grateful for you, Grandma and Grandpa K and Grandma and Grandpa T!!!!  THANK YOU!!!!!!
