Week 6: UAB Rec Camp -Wild N Wacky Water Week
magic of camp had worn off for AJ by this point, which is
understandable. How could one top a week of fun with one's mother like
going to the dentist? Anyway, AJ had fun throwing water balloons with
her camp friends and getting extra wet each and every day.
Week 7: UAB Rec Camp - Superhero Week
kids were encouraged to wear superhero-themed attire all week, AJ
didn't really want to participate. Thursday night rolled around, and
when I picked her up, the counselor reminded us of the costume contest
the next day. So we started talking about what AJ could use for a
costume: she has capes, tights, leotards, masks, etc. But she wanted a
store-bought costume. I warned her store-bought probably wouldn't win
any awards, but she argued that she could use whatever we got for
Halloween. It did not take long to convince me. After dinner, we headed
to Party City's costume room where she perused the super-hero section.
Eventually, she decided to be Iron Man. The gracious employee got on a
ladder and got down the costume, and she tried it on. Suddenly, she was
Iron Man. Here she is on the costume day:
