The first day they went horseback riding. A neighbor has a horse that likes kids so much, Bayley and Hayden both rode her without a saddle. They were quite impressed.
They went hiking, but I think were more interested in trying to find all three of the snakes on Grandma's property...and using the Slip n' Slide...and turning Grandma's waterfall on and off...and using their squirt guns...
One day they made it to Hagg Lake and get this...went kayaking! Oops Kayak was there and they showed the boys all about kayaks. Some day there may be pictures on their website...but we haven't seen them yet.
And then there was the swimming pool the boys have asked to be taken back to. A community pool in Carlton opens up for the afternoon, and Grandma let them show off what they learned in swimming lessons.
So...horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, swimming...sounds like summer camp to me. Only with better food. She made them waffles and bacon for breakfast every morning!!

Anyway, Hayden likes to have playdates with Jack, probably because the pooch looks like a stuffed animal and loves kids! They went to a dog park and Hayden was quite impressed there was a drinking fountain for dogs!

Bayley has been very interested in magic tricks, not in learning the slight of hand bits, but in figuring out how the tricks work. He thought he spotted a trick - making a hankercheif disappear into an egg. Bayley saw the red spot where the hankie had been stuffed in...a few hand movements later and the magician cracked the egg onto a plate. Impressed Bay to no end!
Hayden just wanted in on the action. He stepped in on a trick Brandon was doing. Luckily, Brandon didn't mind.

We came home to find a package - clothes for Grace and brithday presents for the boys from Great Aunt Lynn. The boys we uber excited...she got them helicopters that can fligh high enough to get stuck in the trees. Dad was not as impressed, helicopter rescue hero that he is.
Dinner was Red Robin. Bayley is all about 'trying new things' now that he is 7, so instead of his usual chicken nuggets and fries, he got macaroni and cheese with fries. Way to branch out. Not to be outdone, Hayden also skipped the nuggets in favor of a corn dog. No, chickens do not have nuggets and dogs are not made of corn. But I digress...
