Am I a terrible dog owner that I elected to grab the camera before removing this dog toy that Coco managed to get stuck around her mouth?

The girls had a great time visiting the camp they’ll be attending this summer. The camp has an amazing nature center with tons of animals – snakes, hissing cockroaches, a leopard gecko and other lizards, turtles and tortoises, bunnies, horses…
Most entertaining part of the party involved Joni accidentally being served soda (I think Mountain Dew) for the first time. We have told the kids that soda is an “adult drink,” so they have never tried it, and thus have minimal exposure to caffeine & quite that level of liquid sugar. The attendant at the bowling alley put a pitcher down and said it was juice (we thought it was lemonade), so we poured a big glass for Joni. Joni thought this juice was fantastic, and then became insanely hyper, literally running/hopping/skipping/jumping/crawling back and forth across the length of the bowling alley about 50 times. It was like watching a kid on speed (or what I assume a kid on speed would look like; we’ve also told our kids that speed is an “adult treat”). Needless to say, now she wants to go bowling again.

The leprechauns left a scavenger hunt for the girls overnight.
Here they’re discovering clue #10 to find the pot of gold.
Throughout the day, numerous variations on the hunt were created – even Coco became a clue.
(Yes, as mentioned before, she is the world’s most tolerant puppy!)
Keeping with the green theme, the kids put on a production of Green Eggs and Ham, complete with the key disgusting prop!
Warning, it has a long intro because Haven opted to read aloud all of the script notes, including the list of 50 words contained in the book.

Mom: How about a ham & cheese sandwich in your lunch so you don’t always have peanut butter.
Joni (with great earnestness): Yeah, I don’t want peanut butter. (Tearing up…) Peanut butter even makes me gulp! (30 second pause) What does gulp mean anyways?
