Summer Fun: Part One

It has been about a month since I last posted and thought it was time to give an update of all the fun we have been enjoying this summer. It has been anything but dull :)

I had the opportunity to go to girls camp June 15th - June 17th (the girls stayed till the 19th but I could only stay away from Jocelyn for three days while my mom watched her.) This year was stake camp and our stake was invited up to the Heber Valley camp for YW. It was AMAZING! Super nice cabins, warm showers, flushing toilets, grills, a zip line (which I got to do, yea) and a beautiful lake. If your ward or stake has the opportunity to go, GO!

Here is pic of all our girls. You have no idea how long it took to make this picture happen. Hilarious and so frustrating!

I had to post this picture because it gives you some idea of how nice the cabins are. They even had small space heaters back by the leader's bunks. And of course every girls camp involves crafts! We had about one a day. So fun!
Nothing like cooking in the rain. It's sad when I would rather stir sloppy joe meat in the rain then be in a cabin full of Beehives.

On our third day we got to go to the lake. The girls canoed while the leaders had little paddle boats. It was perfect weather this day right up until we had to come in off the lake and then it started to pour. What a blessing. One of the girls took this picture and I LOVE it!
I'm so glad I got to go even it was only for a few days. I really do love my calling in the YW. The girls are so fun and crazy and are amazing examples to me.

Since most of my days consist of playing with Jocelyn I had to put a couple of pic's of her cute face. I put these shorts on her head just to see how long she would leave them on, and it was long enough to get this pic.

I just love this little hat. Can you tell how boring our days are? Really they are sometimes. :)

Summer is also a good time for trips. Not so much for me but a good friend who left Avalon and moved to Oklahoma made a trip home and so I got to have dinner with a bunch of Avalon friends. It was so good to see Karissa AND everyone else who was able to make it. I miss you guys!!
