this past week was super busy, and super fun.
it started out with 3 days in bear lake at my grandma and grandpa's cabin by the lake. we go every year and we usually stay for a week, but this time we stayed for 3 days (i'll explain in a bit). bear lake is practically my favorite trip of every summer.
we mainly boat, tube, jet ski, and play cards all week. (practically my favorite things)
this year my grandpa rented jet skis and we went jet skiing and pulled tubes from behind it and did knee boarding.
we played poker and other card games.
we also decided to watch 1 lord of the rings movie every night (extended edition). 4 hours of lord of rings every night is really a blast.
at the end of the trip we went home and rested a day and then it was on to COUSIN CAMP.
cousin camp, also know as canberry academy, was so dang fun. my aunt kim and uncle preston hosted it at their house and it lasted 3 nights and 2 days.
it was hogwarts themed and so you arrived signed in, and got your necessities for the stay. you received gallions that you could spend at diagon alley and then got sorted into your house.
there were 4 houses (all the names came from origins of the Thayne line)
Malkinthorn (my house)
each house had their own animal and their own common room and had house elves (little cousins).
throughout the camp you had ways to earn points and then eventually see if you win the house cup.
we had competitions like:
defense against the dark arts
pine wood derby race.
houses would work as a team and gain points.
at the end of the stay it was announced and my house won!
i didn't really care about winning, all i cared about was that i got to get to know all my cousins better and that was truly amazing. i never realized how awesome my family is!!
definitely a great week and i feel so blessed to be apart of such a wonderful family.
