Our Summer Continued.............

I have all ready posted about our Fabulous Girls Camp, so I do not need to repeat anything there, so let's move on to our next adventures. We were able to do a lot of camping this Summer, and we enjoyed every minute. We went to Coalville with Gillian, Melinda, and all our kids. Kind of a Girls Trip, we had tons of fun and enjoyed being away from it all. We swam, and swam, and swam. The pool was our favorite past-time.

We also enjoyed the 4th of July parade on Magna's Main St. Denver was in the parade with the cast of "Annie", he loved it! He had so much fun, it was a long run, but he loved every minute. He would love to be in another play.
We did our annual Grandmas camp up in Coalville. It was an amazing week, we swam, we went boating at Rockport Resevoir and played in the water. Everyone had a blast, the girls were a little crazy. No shocker there!!
There is still so much to talk about, but I will post for now, and continue on in another post. You can see it was a fun filled summer!!

Summers almost over.......but it has been a blast!!

We began the Summer with our Ward Youth Conference. Rafting down the Colorado river. It was an amazing, yet terrifying experience. Our youth and leaders all had a blast and grew closer together. We enjoyed screams and thrills, and also enjoyed the sweet whisperings of the spirit, and beautiful testimonies. This was one of my favorite summer activities, and can't wait to do it again. Our next adventure was boating on Willard Bay with G&G Drummond. Grandpa loves his boat and loves taking the Grandkids out on the lake. The weather was beautiful and the kids love being adventurous on the tube. They are so daring. Even Denver was more adventurous this year, I was so proud of him. I can not ride the tube anymore it hurts my knees, alas the issues with growing old. But no worries, I still have tons of fun. Jalyssa and Dad loved riding together and jumping the waves like real professionals, Mariah is also a little daredevil, and loved trying to do tricks, but we loved watching her crash and fly off. It was awesome!!. Our next Summer memory was camping at Burriston Ponds in Mona, Utah. We went with our friends John and Melinda Klugiewics and Mariah and her friend Amanda. Denver and Jalyssa were unable to go, Jalyssa was in Texas, and Denver was still doing the play Annie. So just the six of us, had crazy fun. The camp was perfect, right by the pond for easy fishing access, which they totally took advantage of. But, the best was the rope swing into the pond. We had so much fun, swinging and swimming in the ponds. The girls were crazy, ALL the time, but they kept us entertained. We loved the peace and quiet, until somebody across the way decided to run their compressor night and day. You should of seen us trying to swing into the lake, we looked like dead fish on a rope, or more like a pinata. Kelly was the only one who looked studly, my own personal Tarzan. it was good times, with good friends and made for a fabulous weekend, and somewhere I definitely want to go again. Thanks John and Melinda for sharing your camping spot, and for bringing the dogs, they definitely made the weekend. Look at the smile on Melinda she is so beautiful, and check out my sexy Husband, he can swing by me anytime. You can see it was a fabulous trip. Our next adventures will be on the next post, it is hard to do such a long post, but hey we had tons of fun this summer and I want to show it all. So here it comes next!!

Becoming an Eight Cow Young Woman....Girls Camp 2010

We had so much fun at Girls Camp this year. We loved every minute of it. The Stake theme was "Becoming an Eight Cow Young Woman" based on the Johnny Lingo movie. They did such a great job following the theme and with the decorations. Each of the values was represented by wards. Our ward was Faith so our color was white. We had cute decorations and super cute T-shirts (by my brother, Todd) and everything went great. Our young women are amazing, they all get along with no contentions and problems. It is such a joy to be with them, and to feel the spirit they exude. I love them so much. Our leaders get to enjoy every minute instead of having to referee problems.

We have an incredible camp director for our ward, Yeah Melinda, who happens to be one of my best friends. Such a joy to work with and so organized and on top of things. I love her and her amazing smile. Thank you, thank you my friend for making camp such an incredible experience for everyone. We will be forever in your debt. Thanks to all the girls for your cooperation and laughter and patience. You made camp hilarious and exciting. Thanks for your tender spirits and testimonies you shared as well, you make us all proud. Well, now to the future......we start planning for next year. MOOOOOOOO!!!!
