As soon as we got there, we tried some fishing but that lasted about 5 minutes with the boys. The fish were sleeping so they could have cared less. At least this year Aiden tried. Last year... he would have nothing to do with it.
After dinner, they had set up an activity for the kids called ductagomi. They had to make something out of duct tape. (In honor of our Grandpa who used duct tape for everything) We joked that he would roll over in his grave if he knew we were wasting all of that duct tape. Ryan even participated in the activity and here are some of the final creations.
Getting started with their ductagomi
Daddy getting his first lesson...
Here are the boys getting their awards for either the fishing tournament or the ductagomi. Notice... they are made out of duct tape.
We have been talking a lot about duct tape so of course there was an incident with Aiden and his gag reflex. On Sunday morning, we started with a nose bleed. Then later in the day, he comes running over to us saying he needs to go to Aunt Gloria's house. We explained that no one is at the house and at that point he started gagging as he mentioned something was on his shoe. Ryan pulled the grass off of his shoe and he immediately started throwing up! I ran him to the trash can and in between gagging and throwing up he finally was able to explain that there was some jelly on his shoe. I removed his shoe and Ryan took it to clean it off. Nope... it wasn't jelly. It was red duct tape! Hopefully he grows out of this very soon.
We had a great time visiting with family that we haven't seen in a while and the boys played until they couldn't play anymore.
