Gold Wins!!!

Last Thursday, I took an early train into Philly for day long continuing legal education classes.  It was so hot!  The classes were virtual the last 2 years.  I was excited to get back there and see some old friends.  
The classes were pretty interesting.  
Lunchtime at the Reading Market.  No line at Beiler's Donuts!  The best!
Had my favorite Amish turkey.  
There's me!
That night, they were still working on the fort.  

Then we went outside to play.  
And swim next door.  

Inside the fort.  

Friday was the last day of Color War.  Aden looked so excited.
The generals and their capes.  
CIT Egg Toss!  They broadcasted some of the events live.  

Later the moved inside to sing their team songs.  It was a ridiculous ceremony that went on for hours.  
Finally, Little Whoot announced the winner.  Gold!!!!

Well that was unexpected.  
It was a great week!
There's the winning general.  That is definitely going on his college applications!
The twins were excited too.  
So exciting!
We packed up and went to the Pub in Pennsauken NJ for dinner.  
Love that place.  The best ribs. 

Rainbows outside!  From there we drove to the shore.  

Have a great weekend!  We will, Ariel comes back Sunday!!!

Last Tuesday was a big day for color war.  The boys were all ready to go.  
All the boys.  
Because Aden was a general, Amy and I were able to go.  
Aden in important meetings with the other generals.  

Here they all are.  

We were there for the Steeplechase.  It's a big race through the camp with every bunk involved.  The generals started off the race.  
We were told to stay at the top of the camp but as soon as they ran off Amy ran after them.  You can see her in the gold shirt.  I then followed her.  
We got to see the twins bunk do their part.

Then Aden had another part in the pool.  

After Aden swam, he had to put on his clothes.  

When all the bunks were done, the generals had a few more challenges.  

The whole camp was watching.  

Brown team won.  Oh well.  

Aden was nervous about the whole day but I think he had fun.  
Ariel pics from her color war.  

On Wednesday, Aden and the CIT's went rafting on the Delaware River.  

That night, I got to see the new and improved fort in the basement.  
Wait till I show you the inside of this thing.  
Another color war pic.
