WHEW! Just packaged up 14 parcels for #camphooplahooray2017giveaway (the Winners & my Magnificent Six counselors and 1 Doctor). Going to munch on some Palmiers & sip homebrewed Kombucha (aka: Boochie) then I'm off to see the United Snails Postal Service to get these parcels outta here! I'll make my rounds at #honeygroveteapartytuesday later y'all .
*EDITED TO ADD WINNER OF #camphlhrtalent2017 = @marysteabears (the fun song Milo & Manni made up) 🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁 DRUM ROLL PLEASE🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁 We all had a fantastic time at #camphooplahooray2017giveaway And the Magnificent Six Camp Counselors and myself deliberated for days over the entries and who wins. EVERYPLUSHIE WINS!! (Now we have a winner's circle) But... I can only afford to send 7 prize packages. So we chose the following WINNERS from the Winners Circle to receive a prize package: @fermate_and_pieter = #camphlhrfood2017 (that watermelon grill was impressive), @tadbearhere = #camphlhrsports2017 (the tree climbing and dodging that panther...Whew!) @pinkpenguin_cuddlypolarbear = #camphlhrstories2017 (the shadow play was a HUGE hit and so very clever) @mirabelleandfriends = #camphlhrcrafts2017 (rock painting is very campy ) @thelifeofbaa = #camphlhrnature2017 (the effort involved in procuring items from nature and weaving leaves to create your tent really was a "green" way to camp) AND 🥁🥁🥁🥁 the WINNER of the HaPpy CaMPeR prize is @jellybean_the_giraffe (FIRST to post in EVERY category with such zeal and determination and excitement) CONGRATULATIONS to ALL the WINNERS AND CAMPERS (who are also in the Winners Circle).

DM me your addresses so I can get the prizes to the Snail Mail Postal Service. #honeygroveteapartytuesday#honeygrovebears
Just got home from a trip to the grandparents and found the most lovely postcard from my friends @britannia_peterle in the mail. Thank you guys so much. It lifted my mood after I realized that I have missed all tge camp fun at #camphooplahooray2017giveaway . 😇🐻
Our campsite has been decommissioned, our uniforms pressed and folded up. Camp is done for another year. We cannot express how much fun we had this week. Thank you friends for coming to camp with us!!! We will never forget it!!! 😊💙🏕 "All my bags are packed
I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin'
It's early morn
The taxi's waitin'
He's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome
I could die
So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
'Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go"
It's #Sunset 🌅 we don't want to leave the camp 💔😞 we want say thank you so much to all staff in Camp Hoopla Hooray 😁⛺️🔥 @honeygrovebears 🐻@littlepandapo 🐼 @feedor_fish 🐋 @flower.crown.crew 🐥 @kerlethesquirrel 🐿 @gnme_rudy_jennie 🐮 @bumbles.bounce 💙 to make this camp is a great camp ⛺️ and to all the friends who came ❤️ We enjoyed a lot , we make new friends like @spybatmissions , @gingylovescupcakes , @fermate_and_pieter 💗 and we have a lot of memories here 💘 see you next year 👋🏼 we love you all ❤️#camphooplahooray2017giveaway#camphlhrnature2017
As many of you have to endure some high temperatures at home, I thought I might share our recipe for home lemonade.
It's a super easy method. We only call it the quick-n-dirty method. .
You might at first be a bit sceptical - just like we were - when you read, that you use the whole lemon. If you not only like the lemony freshness, but also the slight tartness of bitter lemon, then this lemonade is for you, as it utilises the essential oils in the skin.
- 1 lemon
- 2 liters (4 cups) water
- sugar or sweetener to taste
- Cut lemon into wedges (if yours has many seeds, discard them)
- Mix wedges with a bit of water in a blender to an even pulp (I let mine run for a minute)
- Put sieve over a bowl, pour pulp into sieve and let it strain by itself
- You can get any excess fluid from the pulp only by shaking (when I do a flipping motion at the end, the pulp has become a kind of coherent mass, that you can easily discard from the sieve)
- Mix the lemon juice with the remaining water, sweeten and chill
Maybe you can take home this recipe from #camphooplahooray2017 , as we all are heading home. Maybe the kitchen of the camp is still open, for #camphooplahooray2017giveaway in the food category #campHLHRfood2017 @gnme_rudy_jennie
Over near the dock at #camphooplahooray2017giveaway putting boats, water floats, toobs, fishing poles and other stuff away until next year. Thought I'd sit here and ponder the wonderfulness of our Plushie Community. My heart is filled with love for y'all and my fuzz brain filled with teriffic memories. Thank y'all for making this year's camp so special. #honeygrovebears
Au revoir! Goodbye! Adios 👋🏼 We are tired but our heart is full. We miss our plushie-turned-real-doggy Rudy 😉🤣but we will soon miss you all too. #camphooplahooray2017giveaway was abuzz with fun thanks to you all. Thank you especially for all the yummy #camphlhrfood2017 posts. We love you all! 💚Jennie *************************************************P.S. We apologize if we have not quite seen and commented on all your photos, but rest assured we eventually will get to all of it. We also apologize to our friends who were not at camp this week. We have had very little time to catch up and have likely missed a lot of special events. We almost missed our friend @bupermanbaltazar 's name day yesterday 😱😱😱 How does Hope @honeygrovebears do it EVERY SINGLE WEEK? She says she spends 5 hours/day to catch up to everyone sometimes 😳😳😳 She is so awesome is she not? Thanks Hope. We're sure you'd have camp open longer if it was easier. Bye co-counsellors 😭😭😭😭😭 we'll miss you all too!
We think our humans where happy to see us, like ice cream-strawberry-whipped cream-happy! And to be honest, It's actually nice to be home and sleep in a real bed! We had a great time! See you all at the camp next year 😘👋🏻 Love from Bä, princess Dog & Princess Pi ❤️ #camphooplahooray2017giveaway#plushieicecreamcravings !
Our time at camp has ended,
It truly has been splendid.
We've met friends new & old,
Sports were played, stories told.
We've enjoyed crafts & nature,
And somehow avoided danger!
There's been talent & food too,
Something for us all to do.
Much fun we had the last few days
And now we go our separate ways
But with the magic of plushieland,
Everyplushie is always at hand.
If you're not feeling right,
We'll send healing light.
If you're in a jam,
Come help you we can
(We have magic cars, boats & bikes,
even a spaceship and trikes).
And if you're having a partay,
Just try and keep us away!
So thanks for the fun,
For the laughter and sun.
Our memories of camphooplahooray,
Forever with us will stay.
You are all what makes it so great,
To meet up again, we cannot wait!
Have safe magical journeys home,
And remember, you're never alone.
