Shall we gather at the river?

No, no Point of Grace/Ladies Ensemble jabs. I promise. Literally, we gathered at the river.

Several Saturdays ago, Reba and I went on a little field trip with a neighbor family and their good friends to a nearby river and camping ground. All in all there were about 10 adults (me and Reba excluded), 7 tweens and us...along with all the necessary goods for the day: picnic supplies, tents, balls and other games, etc.

The day started out bright and early at "8 a.m. maximum," but we ended up leaving around 9 in a rented van.



The two hour drive consisted of a little musical game that has no name. First, the kids sang a song. The letter/sound that they ended on had to be the beginning letter/sound that the adults started with. Of course, they were mostly Hindi/Kannada movie songs that we do not know, but I pride myself in the fact that I was able to help once with the letter G. Here's a video of the game with a little intro to the day.

The rest of the ride included more musical fun. 7 Indian tweens singing and dancing (in a moving van, mind you) to such songs such as "Barbie Girl" and "Smack That." One of the. funniest. things. I've. ever. seen. Here's a little video montage.

And here are a few more pics from the day:


After we ate lunch (and let the monkeys have our leftovers), we rested then packed up and headed home. It was a fun, memorable day!
