Camp Granddad, Day 2!

We started out our first full day of Camp Granddad with a wonderful trip to Hazel Hill, a local chocolate shop owned by our good friends, the Xidis family. They gave us a really fun, informative tour with LOTS of yummy samples!
Here, they are pouring out a mixture of molten butter and sugar onto a marble slab, preparing to add peanut butter and lots of other goodies to peanut butter fudge:

Everyone got a spoonful of warm, fresh fudge: Little Miss was so enthusiastic about hers, Nick gave her a bigger bite!

Little Guy, on the other hand, took smaller bites:

Here, we are getting an education about different varieties of chocolate:

Granddad and Little Guy take a little break:
As do Miss G and Cousin C:
The three year olds confer:
"I'll take a pound of this and a pound of that. How about you?"

After the chocolate shop, we went over to Gage Park. We had cupcakes to celebrate Granddad's belated birthday (since what we REALLY needed was more sugar...) and rode the train.
Then we split in groups, with most of the big kids going to the Zoo, and most of the little kids going with me to the Carousel.
Saddle up the chickens, we're ready to ride!

We ended our park time in true Kansas fashion, playing "Wizard of Oz"!

After lunch, we had a trip to the pool, then all collapsed into little heaps to sleep and prepare for our final day of fun!
