Girl's Camp 2015

In June 2015 I had the awesome opportunity to spend a week with some of my favorite girls and leaders. We were able to do a ward girls camp and had an amazing turnout and fantastic week. We stayed at a lodge in the Red Feather Lakes region just north of Fort Collins. We got to go on a hike, do team building and go rock climbing with our bishop. We were also spiritually fed each night with devotionals, and a final testimony meeting.

I can't tell you what a great week this was. I pulled plenty of pranks on the poor girls ( I don't think they had any idea, they all blamed the YCLs). I sewed their sleeping bags shut, put fake bugs in their rooms, and silly stringed them with the other adults. We also had an older sister almost convince her younger sister she was was a little sad. The best part about girls camp was watching the girls feel the spirit in a way that they may not have before.

Amelia turned one. We celebrated by inviting a few family friends over and spoiling her of course. she has been the most amazing addition to our family. Bryan and I both commented that we couldn't imagine not having her around. She is mellow and easy to laugh, loves to climb and challenge herself constantly.
