Ward Campout

This past weekend we were able to go to our ward camp out on the rim. The weather was absolutely perfect. Not too cold and refreshing. We don't get to camp very often but we love it when we do. I must mention that even though there are things I don't love about camping my husband always spoils me when we go camping. He does the cooking and takes the kids on hikes so I can take a nap in the hammock(this is making me sound so terrible-I'm so spoiled). He really is so sweet, and so despite not liking the stinky toilets and bugs he makes camping very enjoyable.
This is one of the few times I saw my boys. I had to make them stop so I could take a picture. They had a blast running around having air soft gun wars, playing football, hide and seek, and hunting for "snipes"

The girls had a great time running around with their friends, picking flowers, and performing on their stage(aka the log).
This was a picture I couldn't pass up on!

Dave was their entertainment for awhile. Here's Kaili doing the helicopter.

Then he became their horse and got a good workout bouncing the kids on his knees.

John was nice enough to take the girls on a hike.

The Rivera's brought up a pinata for their sons birthday. The kids thought it was fabulous!! She even had treat bags for each kid and cake!

The adults enjoyed playing bowling ball croquet. It was pretty funny to watch. I don't know if you can see the bowling ball Dave was hucking.

So most of our friends know we have some kind of car curse. We have sooo many stories of our cars breaking down it's become legendary(not in a good way, obviously). We always seem to have trouble when we go on a trip. We actually haven't had very many care troubles for a couple of years, which was good but I suppose it couldn't last forever. All of the guys at the camp out we kind enough to tinker with it so we could make it home. I was grateful that we figured out we had a problem when we were at the camp out-what better place could it happen where there are several men there with the know how,that was definitely a blessing. It was also a blessing that we made it home just fine and one of the men offered to help us fix it which will save us a bunch of money!

This is what the boys looked like on the way home. I think that a sign of a fun time. Kyle was the only kid that didn't pass out(we were so glad he came along with our family). All in all I think it was a fun time!

Looks like you guys have had a lot of fun lately! Ward camps are always a lot of fun. We haven't tried roller skating in awhile. I'll have to put that on our list of things to do this winter when the weather is bad.
