Oh. My. Gosh. This was the best time ever. After all the preparation, the time, the planning, the packing, the PERMISSION SLIPS...off we went! This was my 2nd year as ward camp director and man was I looking forward to it. New YW presidency at the last minute so it was kind of crazy, but it all worked out perfectly. We lucked out and got assigned the Priesthood cabin. (We missed you McKenzie!) It was big enough for all of us AND had it's own bathrooms! I don't know why I didn't take a picture of it...Anywho, you would not believe what goes on up there! I'm not a very good picture taker, so you get what you get. I just don't ever want to STOP and get out the camera. I'm having too much fun :)
Skit night was the first night up there. After all the hard work putting it together, I almost cried when they pulled it off without a hitch. What talented, funny girls we have! Hooray for Andrea Allen who pretty much put it all together. She took a not-very-fun song (heigh ho) and made a very-fun skit. When Andrea came out after putting on all of their mustaches, she was laughing..."they look like a bunch of chester-moleters, you are going to die it is so funny!"
EVERY time we gather, we sing. There is plenty of singing going on...
And craft making (bracelets), and posing!
There is very little "hang out" time. But the girls love it. Hanging out in the cabin and eating snacks. Speaking of snacks, the food that the Stake provides is dang good! Really. The problem is, they just don't give our girls enough. Most of the time, the girls want seconds, and since they have to wait for everyone to eat first, they NEVER stick around to get them. So, they're hungry all the time. We ate a TON of PB&J sandwiches and sadly...cookies. Andi just happens to have an apple in her hand! Way to go Andi.
Here we are on Spiritual night. We made these lanterns and everyone wore their pj's and tie-dyes. It was a great night.
Here is Kylee and her BFF Camila. Good times!
There's a huge water fight,
The leaders (in disguise) may take it a little too seriously!
I love this girl! Shelly executes a perfect photo-bomb!
And then it's off to war. Trying to break each other's crackers with styrofome wands. That is one tiring game. We needed some serious recovery time!
I am a lame picture taker but at least I got a few to document the good times! Thanks girls, I had a blast. Especially thank you to Kylee and Kinsey for so kindly putting up with their mother for ONE MORE YEAR!
