Manti Pageant

Last night we took the kids to Manti for the pageant. It's become an annual tradition because John loves it so much. Every year he cries when Robert and Mary are reunited in the after life. And every year I giggle (at the same part). And every year I spend the next couple days calling him "beloved" because I'm funny like that.

And every year we have a blast

Adeline is my only child that stayed awake for the entire thing. Bailey fell asleep on the grass and Austin across a few chairs.

If you've never been, it really is neat and touching.

Girls Camp

Staci (leader) and no longer brace face ChanningThe treat box (what would camp be without it)
Lizzy and Jessi
My AWESOME camp cook Ann. Seriously could not have done it without her and I sure loved getting to know her better.
French braids were my style of choice for the week
And I got good practice braiding others hair (while she braided anothers hair)

Game night in the lodge

:Spa Time:
I did some good eyebrow archesface masksI enslaved the Morris girls...One on my feet and one on my hands:)

After our whole group did the 2 mile hike, 4 girls wanted to go on 2 more miles, so another leader and I went on with them. Can you tell who the leaders are and who the girls are? (the answer is no)

My secret sister made me this awesome shirt
Jasmyn and Emily
Craft time
Mary being a man and building a fire for tinfoil dinners

I was somehow talked into letting these tiny young women get me over this wall

Rope bridge

"Singing in the Rain"
Can't believe I actually pulled it off. I could NOT have done it alone. John was my assistant. Not only did he spend 2 days there, set up, clean up, watch kids while I was gone, pack and tow the trailer, but he even lead the girls in beautiful rendition of "The Princess Pat." Of course every other leader did a ton too AND gave up a week to be up there with us. Now I sound like I'm giving an acceptance speech. It was a great week!

Dancing Simba

We got home from Boise last week just in time for John and Austin to leave for fathers and sons and for the girls to get to Adeline's dance performance of The Lion King.

She was the cutest baby Simba for the whole minute she got on stage.

Girls Camp pictures to come... It was wild!
