For our final evening all together we headed down to my parent’s property in La Pine, Oregon, for an outdoor bonding adventure. Here’s all the cousins modeling their hand-drawn tee-shirts:
Time for a walk-about with Grandpa! Follow the leader!
Pushing over dead trees has been a favorite activity for years and years.
A big ole fire was built and when the coals were perfect in went the foil packet dinners:
It was quite a feast!
Time for the grand event: the family showcase! We opened the show by leading everyone in the silly song/dance “The Button Factory”:
It was a big hit!
Other family members took turns telling stories, doing little skits, singing, and dancing:
Grandma called up all the cousins to lead us in a silly fruit song and dance:
The highlight of the evening was the surprise skit: “Little Grandpa”, performed by the grandparents. I acted as narrator and led Little Grandpa through a series of actions with hilarious results:
At the end I invited each cousin to pick themselves up off the ground and wipe away their laughter tears and come give Little Grandpa a hug goodnight:
It was a hilarious and enjoyable evening and an excellent way to end our time together.
