We spent Saturday evening down at Mat's bar, Scallywags, at Lake Red Rock. They had a game of Bags set up (it's a horseshoe-like game), and Oli figured it out right away. He spent about half an hour putting the bags in the hole, taking them out, and doing it all over again. But, he obviously chose to be on the blue team, because he wouldn't put any of the red ones in the hole, even when I gave them to him. He would just throw the red ones off the side! I've got one smart babe.

Jumping off! At the top you can see the trapeze bar we were supposed to aim for - it was pretty far away, but I was the only one to actually touch it.

I pulled out our Mei Tai on Wednesday. I haven't used it in awhile, because my Patapum is so easy to get on and off that I kind of got spoiled. But I'm planning on wearing the Mei Tai to a wedding this weekend (it's 'dressier' than my other carriers), so I thought we should practice. After a few minutes of remembering just how it works, Oli was nice and comfortable, as was I. I love this thing! We did some housework, walked to get the mail, and walked to the bank. (I really need to clean the slobber off that mirror!!)
And Oliver got 'fluffy mail' on Wednesday - a new wool soaker (used as a cover for his fitteds). I bought it from WinkyDinks on Etsy. He tried it out this morning and is great!

I co-facilitate a middle school girls' group, and we took them camping at Camp Hantesa Friday and Saturday. I didn't spend the night, but Friday I was away from Oli for exactly 11 hours and 16 minutes....ugh it was terrible.
I did pretty well throughout the day, we were very busy with the challenge courses. But at dinner in the cafeteria, one of the camp staff had her kids with her - she had an 8 month old son. I just about started crying right there. I left shortly after dinner and came home to stare at Oliver sleeping for awhile. I was happy when he woke up in the night so I got some cuddle time.
But, I survived the time away (as did Oli, and he loved playing with Grandma Holly), and it was worth it - I did the high ropes course, which is 30 feet up in the air, as well as the 'Leap of Faith' - I climbed to the top of a 30 foot telephone pole, stood on the top, and jumped off. Some of my girls were holding the rope. I'll get the photos from the other group leader later this week, and I'll be sure to post them. It really was a blast!
