Classy Dames.....

Today was the day that the boys were delivered to camp. Karen and I took them as we do every year, enabling ourselves to have some time together garden shopping and the like on our way home. It's a two hour drive each way from our place so we have lots of fun. We laughed with the boys the whole way there while listening to the Dead Dog Cafe, stopping only at Tim Hortons to grab some lunch. The boys settled in so quickly and were keen for us to leave so we took off, stopping for chips etc at a cornr store in the next little town. We remembered that Adam needed a flashlight so we bought a couple and drove back to the camp. We told the boys that we had already gotten a call about their behaviour and that we had come back to take them home. After a moment of panic we said good-bye and left them for real.

We managed to eat almost a full bag of Doritos before we stopped for supper, and were quite proud of how much we managed to pack away regardless. As we were getting into the van Karen told me her arm was going numb....laughing she informs me that she is having a heart attack. All I could do was spew my water all over the van and out my door. Once we got over that I figured that I was safe to drive so off we went again.

Next stop was Farmer Clems. After loading a cart full of plants we got some ice cream. Mine of course was melting too fast but I couldn't lick it as my hands were full with the box of plants. Karen didn't feel like licking it for me so I had a huge mess to deal with by the time we got to the van. Of course it all started dripping down my hands and even on my shirt. Nice!!! Anyhoo....I got cleaned up and off we went again. It was then time to listen to music from the past. We so enjoyed singing to all the songs from the 80's entertaining anyone who managed to pass us with our fabulous shenanigans. Amazingly we made it back to my place in one piece and as classy as ever. The fathers are planning to do the pick up on Friday night so the boys won't be nearly as entertained.

Sounds like fun! Though, I can't quite imagine what it's like to drop your kids off at camp. I guess that day will come!

I'm so glad you and Karen are getting a chance to spend some quality time together. You two are definitely peas in a pod:).

Wow! You had fun! Are you sure you don't want to pick them up too? ;)

You are so mean to tell them you had to come pick them up! I bet they were freaking out! LOL
