And they're off - Sack Race 7 and under
What colour is fun?  Purple I think.  We had a lot of fun on Saturday in the park.  We organized Sports Day in the Park.  With the help of a few friends, the children had blast!
Sack Race 8 - 12
We had two heats - one for the little ones 5 - 8 years old and another for 9 - 12 years old.
Daddy (Jason) helps the little ones practice - 3 legged race

Our son Jason, wife Michelle and our granddaughter Sophie were here for the weekend and Sophie was right in there.  She made a new friend, Xaria, who has been camping here with her mom for a few weeks.

Jason supervises from the sidelines
Our handsome son, Jason was having a great time helping out.
Michelle made a great dinner.  We washed up in the trailer.
Alas the children have returned to the city.  I have three days off now and I need it.  Working, showing movies and entertaining the children.  I am exhausted.

Just think before long all of this fun you're having will be behind you. Then, you'll have to start thinking how to spend your days. :-)

We once did a crutches race for the teenagers at a campout. We only had one pair so we made it a timed race using a stopwatch to time each contestant. That would not work with a group as large as yours, though.

Who decorated your bags? Was that one of the activities?
