It’s fun to stay at the….

Today we had not one but TWO wonderful adventures! If you caught the song quote in the title of this post, you might have picked up on the fact that Camp visited the Y-M-C-A today! They invite us every summer to have a crazy awesome pool party in their heated pool with no crabs or sand and with a lift to get into the water and a super fun waterslide to slide down (and to terrify their very diligent and kind lifeguards). 

We also get to wear some high-fashion purple swim caps when we hang out there, both for hygiene and style purposes. Here’s some friends modeling these hot accessories and showing how functional they are, as well!

Look at all these friends in the pool! What a party! Thanks, YMCA!

Marie was so happy to be able to swim in any body of water, but especially a warm pool with all her friends.

Jon was less-than-happy to put a tiny swimcap on his head, but more-than-happy to show it off afterwards.

Chloe jumped right in and started swimming! Check out that awesome form.

Skylar was a little nervous at first, but when he got in the water he had a great time! And purple is definitely his color.

Sharon opted out of the swim cap when not in the water, but Sage was pretty insistent on just wearing it because she liked how it looked.

We left the YMCA with all our pieces and a lot more chlorine in our systems, and headed home to quickly shower and eat. 

Those of us who showered quickly were able to enjoy some downtime adventures, including Jason and Holly who went on a wonderful bikeride on the streets around camp!

Sharon, once again, helped take some of these photos. Thanks for having my back, Sharon!

After an early and delicious dinner, we packed some extra cash and some layers and HEADED TO THE STREET FAIR. 

Every year, Vineyard Haven shuts down its Main St. and becomes a giant party, complete with live music, balloons, face painting, shopping, and lots of fried and tasty food. Camp rolls out in full force, and everyone has a great time as campers try to make sure their counselors don’t eat fried dough, pizza, AND ice cream. It’s just so tempting, though!

Here's a group picture of one of the crews heading to the fair!

Sam Stoddard is beautiful.

Hiiiii Sam.

Sharon and Shirley spent the walk down asking each other questions about their lives and getting to know one another. Yay friendship!

Which was all fun and games until the shark realized how delicious she looked and tried to eat her... Sorry, Sharon!

A lot of people got dessert treats at the Street fair, including David and Leif who scarfed down some ice cream together

Sam saved his appetite at dinner to be able to get some of his favorite food: Quinoa Salad!

At this point you must be thinking: Dang, what a successful day at Jabberwocky. What will they come up with next? Well good, because we want you to keep checking in with us to see what frabjous things we do tomorrow!

Jabberwocky won the street fair. Yay us! Yay Holly!

Also, we want to say a special hello and WE LOVE YOU to Cathy! We miss her so much at camp, and we hope that she is doing well and enjoyed her visit from Kaitlin and Peter! Hope to see you soon, Cath!!
