Camp Second Chance

This past weekend our family went to Rutledge, GA to go to Camp Second Chance. It is a special weekend camp for transplant kids and their families. It was a great experience and the place is amazing!!! Ian will have the opportunity to go for a week in the summer to "Camp Independence" when his is older and we definitely plan on sending him.
Beach Party was the theme this year and they had a big beach party set up for the kids with tons of jump castles. That event lasted two hours until 9:45 at night and the kids slept really well after all that jumping! Our family had fun going on a paddle boat, fishing, mini golfing, and going to the group drumming circle. The closing event was a butterfly release where each of the transplant kids got to make a wish and release a butterfly (fitting as the entire transplant wing at CHOA is all butterfly themed!) Ian's butterfly didn't want to leave and spent some time on his shoe, or Brett's thumb.
A great weekend and we are ready to come home and rest now! Here are some picture highlights.

Beads and Teeth not Teeth Beads :)

Livy and I have been enjoying some one on one time since Ian has returned to school. We made the ever class straw bead necklaces yesterday. I think we have a future in jewlery :)
Ian lost yet another tooth tonight which brings his total up to 5. His other upper front tooth is also very wobbly and it won't be long to join the ranks with the collection of the tooth fairy. I love his jack-o-lantern grin!
