Girls Camp 2011


I was asked to attend Girls Camp! I was so excited. Our stake goes to Treasure Mountain, which is where I went as a kid. It was all so familiar and filled with memories. I was a tent mom for the 1st year girls. I had the easiest girls. It was one of the best experiences I have ever had.  

 Girls at campfire. During campfire things get pretty silly. Skits and games are played. Songs are sung as loudly as you can imagine. The girls got so much out of this time. It was a time to just have good fun.
 This was my group of girls.  They were called the Royal Runts. The theme this year was Quest for the Best so everything was bad around medieval times.
 We took the 1st year girls on a hike. It was the most beautiful hike ever. We hiked, had lunch then some of the girls swam! It was cold water!
 More of the hike...
One think that had changes is they now have yurt's. No more tents. It was nice. This is the one that some of us leaders slept in. The little stream flowed behind it.

Say Cheese?

I was taking a picture of my nephew Alex. This is what I got.

Carter is 7!

My little Carter bug is 7! I can't believe how fast time has gone by. Carter is a sweet kid who loves growing up. His favorite color is green. His favorite restaurant is Olive Garden. His favorite subject is reading. His favorite friends are Michael and Noah.  Carter has learned so much this year. He learned how to swim and ride his bike. He is learning Karate. He just got his orange belt. We love Carter so much and feel like the luckiest parents in the world to have him!

Friday Night Fun

I got to babysit Payten, Riley and Blake while John and Carla went to see Harry Potter. Juli, Max and Alex came over to play. The kids played in the backyard. It was cute. Love these kids!

A Quickie!

Carter learned how to ride a bike. He would only ride in "straight" lines on the first day. Now he will make "turns".  Baby steps for this kid!

Clay finished baseball season. They had a really fun season. That's code for they only won 2 games. But they had FUN!

Andrew played in an outdoor violin concert. He's in the blue shirt. It was all the 5th graders in Vacaville. They played at the Nut Tree Plaza.

Jordan (and his friend Derek) made high honors again this year. This is after the ceremony.  He does smile once in awhile. Just not for the camera.

Facebook Free!

I just deleted my Facebook account. I spent a lot of time looking at other peoples lives instead of participating in mine. I didn't do the games or Farmville, I just felt like I was always looking at it. So if you want updates you can look here! I will be better about keeping the family blog updated. I promise.

Clay has the Camera!

Clay often get a hold of my camera. When he does I get pictures like this.
