Camp Barnabas and Fun in the Sun

Friday, May 22, 2009

With our warmer Missouri temps, we decided to crack out the little pool before we set up the bigger one this Memorial weekend. Grace enjoyed getting wet in her suit and piling sand all over the place. And, of course, there was MUCH flower picking going on.

We also had the opportunity to visit the now famous Camp Barnabas... it was featured on Ty Pennington's Extreme Makeover show a few years back. It's a great place geared for kids with disabilities and other challenges - summer camp extreme if you ask me. They offer the typical things like canoeing, camping, horseback riding, petting/handling zoos, swimming, staying in cabins, etc. They also offer an extreme outdoor course that would have me peeing my pants! (I don't care for heights.) Anyway, it was neat to get to go there and check it all out... thanks to Jack Henry & Associates... my husband's employer (my ex-employer in my pre-Grace days...). I guess they sponsored the camp in building a new cabin or something along those lines, so the camp opened up the place for a JHA night. I'll posts some pics here of our activities... shoulda brought a suit!
