Camp Gramp — Saturday

These updates are sent by my mom, telling us about the latest hijinks the kids are up to. My folks and kids will all arrive back in New England on Wednesday morning.

Lively day. We were invited to a play date at Sue and Dave’s. Their granddaughter, Melissa, was there. She is 7. She had prepared well for our visit — tea cups and punch, cookies, mac and cheese which was nothing like the stuff that comes out of the box. I need that recipe! They have an outdoor room kind of thing with a fire place and a fire was not amiss today. I think the high temperature was under 70 today. We even roasted marshmellows! Fun.

Then we came home and Unca Matt was here. So we had a computer afternoon. He downloaded Castle of Dr. Brain for the boys. A little difficult yet, but fun. I did a really cool book with Thane. It is a dinosaur book. When you find a page with the correct logo, you hold it up to your web cam and it gives a 3-D graphic. I sense a coming trend. It is pretty simple, but could become more complex. One graphic is eggs. You press the space bar and the eggs hatch. Just thought I would say that Thane didn’t really understand it and prefered reading the book, but hey!

Kay started painting her peacock.

Then Unka Matt took me to Kent to pick up the Saturn. Ironically, we both forgot our phones, which was a mistake. Dad did a fabulous job taking care of the kids. He is a hero!

10 p.m. — I think I will go relieve him!
