We Are Away This Week at Summer Family Adventure: Callaway Gardens

Yep, we got here on Saturday for the Callaway Gardens Summer Family Adventure. It’s a summer camp for families featuring activities such as water skiing, circus, zip lines, and more.   I’ve actually stolen a few minutes while the boys went off to Aqua Island, but I wanted to let you know that I will be posting tidbits of our stay on Facebook, Twitter, and here on the blog throughout the week.

Today was Day 1 of camp and we had a BLAST!  We did some circus training with the FSU Circus.  I have video and will post it this week some time.  By the way, when I say “we”, I mean my husband.  I couldn’t get up the ladder – seriously.  Those acrobat performers are way stronger than you could ever imagine.  Earlier today we went on a Floral Border Walk with the Director of the Gardens at the Shibley Center.  I took some amazing photographs.

The flowers were amazing…

James’ camp was with the 7 and 8 year olds and they did Circus Skills today as well as T-Shirt Tie-Dye and Sandcastle competition.  He was really shy and uncomfortable around all the strangers but his camp counselors (FSU Students) were awesome with him and although he ended up having a slow start he is looking forward to tomorrow.

Ethan and his friend Derek were with the teen group and they had a blast today water skiing.  He took video of it and we are going to do some editing and post it in our final post.  They also did tennis skills and drills and flips on the flying trapeze (more video of this to come too).

So, it’s almost dinner time and the family went back to Aqua Island while I stole some quite time on the screened porch of our cottage.  I love Callaway Gardens.
