Cohen's Camping Party Details

   Here is my proud birthday boy with his hobo stick.  We played a bug hunt game, where each child was give a laminated card with 4 bugs named on it.  The mission was to find your bugs and tie them in your hobo sack. 
   What camping experience would be complete with a campfire and smores.  So we had that too.  The favorite flavor of the night seemed to be chocolate chocolate smore (chocolate graham crackers, hershey chocolate, and marshmallow).  My favorite was the chocolate peanut butter smore (chocolate graham cracker, reeses peanut butter cup, and marshmallow).
   They loved the slingshots with mini marshmallows and although my initial idea was we just shoot them down the hill it became a battle of grownups versus the kids.  I am proud to say that all the children were asleep in their sleeping bags in out family room by 10:15.  One of our dear friends (parent of one of the children) and brave soul slept on the couch all night by the tents to supervise.  Some of the children, my own included have seasonal allergies, so although the children slept, the grown ups listening to coughing all night long.  Thank you Lord for such dear friends.
   Here's a few more photos of the fun!

Here is the invitation for the party and the post about the slingshots.
