Moore Family Vacation Day 2

On Saturday we had the one nice hot day of the vacation, and it was fantastic!  Janny and Reeny came brought these adorable little camp chairs that Reeny made and had each grandchild's initial on their very own chair.  So cute!  And Janny and Reeny brought a giant bin of treats for the kids to snack on all week long.  It was so thoughtful of them, and so fun to have them with us for a little while!

We blew up the water slide and it was a big hit!  I am pretty sure between that and the boat that the kids spent all day in their swim suits!  The water blob turned out pretty well, too, and Melanie especially thought it was fun.  Christy and I laid down on it for a while, too!  It was perfect for cooling off on a hot sweaty day!

At lunch time Benjamin got out all of his gifts from Russia and gave them to everyone.  It was so sweet of him!  Everyone loved their matryoshka dolls, cool hats and scarves!  Benjamin is a big sweetie pie.  And Carolin gave all the kids some little gifts and candy, too.  What a thoughtful gal! 

AnnaMarie and Tyler made Cafe Rio salads for dinner and they were amazing!  I love how we divide up the meals so that everyone has a day to cook.  It was awesome to have such great food every day!  Anyways, we had a great time out on the boat, playing games, and just hanging out.  And after the kids went to bed, we had our rootbeer tasting, played some games, and had some nice grown up time.  It was a lot of fun!

AnnaMarie said she was having trouble with the tortillas and asked if I would help.  I came in and this if what I found.  I thought it was funny.
