5th day- You can fly! (Literally)

ZIP-ity do dah! Zip-ity ay!
I've always wanted to soar over the canopy of a tropical rain forest, the wind blowing my hair. Screaming my guts out!!!. Papa helped to fulfill my wishes (even if we only sailed over one dead little pine tree!) by spending countless hours figuring out and constructing a zipline in the backyard! What a great way to finish off a high flying week of camp! I thought that the little ones might be too scared to try it, but they were fearless and went again and again!

The kids wanted Merrill to go down first, just in case Papa didn't know what he was doing!
Once they saw he survived, they were all anxious to try it!
Danii (that little daredevil!) has conquered "It's a Small World" and eventually...
...she conquered the zipline too!
It's these moments of pure joy that make all your efforts worth it!
I'm proud of this fearless flier! She jumped off as soon
 as the gate opened so she wouldn't chicken out!
My Oh My, What A Wonderful Day! Thanks Papa!!!

Drive-In Meal and a movie

After driving their souped up autos into the drive-in, the buddies took each others orders. They were offered standard drive-in fare: hamburgers, hot dogs, corndogs, fries, nachos, pretzels and burritos.

May I take your order?
The kids enjoyed their drive -in dinner and watched The Lego Movie outside.
I used my photo backdrop frame and a canvas drop cloth for the screen.
Ice Cream Parlor
 Nutter Butter ice cream cones
  Ice cream sugar cookies
Ice cream marshmallows, ice cream flavored taffy and gumballs
We pre-scopped and froze different flavors of ice cream to make it easier to serve a lot
 of kids at once. We scooped ice cream into paper cupcake wrappers and froze them.
 The kids peeled them off and put them into their bowls and added toppings. A lot of toppings!!!
Everyone ate until they were sick. Success!!!

Easy ice cream scramble word game
Treat boxes were filled with ice cream noveltys and treats.
The treat box is from Claudine Hellmuth and is found here.
These little marshmallow cones were found at Big Lots.
Marshmallow treat topper
I used the little jewelry bags found in the craft dept. at Walmart.
The marshmallows are from Kraft and are a Summer special flavor.
