The boys head to T Bar M at Camp Travis which is such a beautiful camp right on the lake. They spend time playing sports activities, ropes course, wakeboarding and lots of other fun stuff.
Carly’s camp is in New Braunfels and each year the kids choose a sport as the focus. This year Carly Jo chose golf. She was not super impressed about carrying her own clubs!
They also have a theme pretty much every night when the kids dress up. Here is my sweet little Princess Leia.
The first few years I really stressed over the costumes but thankfully Carly Jo is fairly easy going and has a great time no matter how simple her costume.
The most fun night is always Thursday when they have Mission Impossible and the cabins battle against each other .
The kids are all split between Alpha (red) and Omega (blue) and all week long they have challenges to see who will be the winner for the week. My kids are both Omegas and let’s just say we have become accustomed to not coming out on top!
My favorite at Carly’s camp is when the parents line up by the cabin flags and the kids run to find us while the theme song is playing! I love the look on her face when she finally finds us!
Crazy small world as one of Dillon’s counselors this year happens to be the son of a guy I work with! The words chosen for Dillon were loyalty and firm.
Of course we had to take a few McJanac pictures because #tradition
Even after an entire week together when it was time to go our separate ways these two still have to have some love!
And what did the parents do while the kids were away?!!
We took advantage of all our kids being away at camp and caught up with friends over dinner.
We headed downtown around 4:30 to our room at the Driskill. I added a note on our reservation asking for contact info for having a dessert sent to the room and never heard back. How surprised were we when this little treat showed up. Such a thoughtful touch!
We dined at Perry’s Steakhouse which was just a quick walk. Sadly my iphone died so I have zero pictures of dinner (the hubs isn’t so impressed when I start taking pictures with the big camera) but I assure you the food was amazing and we had a great time talking.
