So this past weekend, my parents hosted a "cousin camp" for their 5 grandchildren. It began with a yummy breakfast at IHOP, a puppet show and some preparation at their house, an afternoon at the putt putt/go-kart place, and a weekend at Great Wolf Lodge (hotel in Grapevine, TX with an indoor water-park)! The theme was B.R.A.T from the Army; Be Ready At All Times. My parents had a puppet show and a few mini devotions, about putting on the full armor of God, and "being ready at all times". All the kids stayed in a hotel room with my parents, and we stayed in our own room (a little getaway for us too!) We had such a fun weekend! We didnt take any pictures of the waterpark part, because there wasn't really anywhere to keep our camera. BUT, here are the pictures that I do have!

Looking at army gear and learning how they protect themselves; and learning how we can protect ourselves with the armor of God.

Posing in front of the sweet shoppe. They all had magic wands from the hotel treasure hunt. The entire hotel had a treasure hunt, and the kids could run around and participate throughout the hotel.
This is one of the treasure hunt "stations". There were just random things like this throughout the hotel, and they would point their wand at it, and the item would light up and give them a new clue!
Here is a picture from the internet, of the waterpark part
