Day Camp - Family Style

Friday afternoon the boys' Cub Scout Day Camp was coming to an end. It was an afternoon of family picnics;

a.k.a. pizza eating (Pack picnic for 8 or buy a pizza? Buy a pizza!);

wing-wearing;

blackberry picking;

laughing;
skits - Taylor the mummy;

more skits - Carter;

sitting around;

and Taylor's "regular" look. Smiles are rare. He's 10 1/2 with an attitude.

We're heading out of town for a few days to go "camping." We're going to a better place than last year. At least it was better 3 years ago when we went there last. (Eww. Remember this story from last year? I can't forget it! I'm checking everything good before we pack it up!)

Updated to add: I can't believe I forgot to mention this, but Taylor received "honorable mention" for BB shooting at Day Camp. He scored 49 out of 50, with the winner scoring 50. When they called his name, they called "Tyler ..." and mispronounced our last name (skipping the middle syllable). Taylor didn't go up at first until someone corrected the emcee. (Two years ago, he won first in the county at Day Camp.) Go, Taylor!

Way to go Taylor.
He'll smile when he thinks you're not looking. That's what my brother did when he was 10 until he was about 20!
