steadfast and immovable



it has been a little while since i posted but i figure better late than never! last week i got to go up to girls camp! and it was such a blast. we went to camp browning. it's a boy scout camp up by cousey resorvoir. we had so much fun and the best part was getting to know each of the girls a little bit better. there was tons of stuff to do, we went canoeing, shot guns, archery, repelled and rock climbed and the cope (which is a ropes course). it was really nice cause there wasn't any drama at all! the girls were so good. liz got brave and stuck her feet in the freezing river for forty minutes! we all played the "would you rather" game, and we sang tons of songs. i think that is my favorite part because you forget them and as soon as you hear the tune they come back. sister noel came up and played her yukalaylee (i have no idea how to spell that). and ashleigh taught us a couple of songs that i just loved! i really love girls camp. if i could be in the YW for the rest of my life it would all pay off at girls camp. we had a great camp director and she planned everything so well. i really love testimony meeting. i know that is the place i feel the most comfortable expressing myself and my love for the gospel and i hope that the girls all gain more of a testimony there too. it was really cool too cause brad got to come up the second day and spend the night and he helped alot. danette's husband layne was also there and it was fun to get to know him. he came out one night with this scary mask and terrified some of the girls! i loved it! it is so good working with awesome leaders and getting to be better friends with them all the time. it's so funny being in this ward because it's the ward i grew up in. it's interesting to see what is going on with the families that still live here and getting to know the new ones. i really like this ward alot. it has been one of the best things that has happened to brad and me.

Looks like you had a ton of fun! I miss girls camp! Hopefully one day I'll be a YW leader and get to go again! Hope things are going good for you and Brad and the baby! :)

You are so lucky! I love girls camp!! and I want to be an advisor so bad. It looks like you guys had a ton of fun! So, I quit my job about a month ago and I'm not in bountiful that often, but we still need to do lunch. I miss you. How are you feeling? How's your little guy? I loved your post on your baby check list, it helped me see how many things I don't have that I desparately need. We are having the hardest time making decisions. Have you thought of any names yet? We like the name Brock for now, but it could change. Cute blog!!

Yay for girls camp! I was sad that I only got to go with our ward for one night... :( I'm glad you got to go and have so much fun! I bet your girls think you are awesome!

We have been on some fun trips and we have more planned this summer... and I'm 7 and 8 months along...YIKES I don't think we'll ever be ready for the baby to come. I'm kind of stressed out about the whole thing. I'm really glad, however, that you posted a list of items you needed because I never thought of half of them. That has been a big help. I quit my job about a month ago. Things were getting crazy there, I wasn't happy. Also Darrik and I have been doing real estate stuff, so I didn't need to work any more, and I am a huge wuss and it was getting hard to be at a desk all day and drive to Bountiful and be in a hot car for 2 hours out of the day. So I said, I'M DONE! Ready to be a stay at home mom! It's been good, a little shocking because I've never been stay at home, but I've learned to adjust...hahahaha. I know we say this over and over again, but we need to play. So lets think of something fun to do and go do it together! OK?
