Long Time...No Post. I still haven't got the hang of regularly posting but things have been busy.

Been to Sisiversary - What a great time, but that's another post. This post is about Pirate Camp for Cabbage Patch Kids...that's right... you read right. I host a week long summer camp for Cabbage Patch Kids. For those of you who know me, know that I collect CPKs and have my own very special Kid, Adam Luther. Well, I've been doing this since 2000 (not every year) and have had a blast doing this. Each time we have camp we have a different theme. This year is Pirate Camp! (Last year's was Survivor Camp). The generic name of my camp is Cabbage Kids Adventure Camp.

Of course, Adam Luther is the host. This year we have 14 campers. "Parents" pack their Kids up with their supplies, like p.j.s, change of clothes, toy to sleep with, etc... and mail them off to me for a week of great fun. I take them and do lots of fun photo shoots with them. Yes, I even take them on field trips outside of the house...In Public! I get lots of attention...and looks, and they even help to strike up conversation and people start telling me about their first CPKs and stuff like that.

One of the highlights of this summer's camp is that we have a celebrity camper! Remember Geico Insurance t.v. commercial that featured the Cabbage Patch Kid, Ben Winkler??? Well, He's here with me at camp and he's signing autographs! He's just a regular kid who did a commercial - no big head here. Really cute. I'll try to attach a picture of him.

So, today was day 1 of camp. Craft day. We made popsicle treasure chests, decorated picture frames and stamp painted t-shirts. Not a drop of paint on anybody! :0) Not sure what we'll be doing tomorrow. I think Ben Winkler will be signing his glossies for his new friends!

Stay tuned!
Ben Winkler
