Family and Girls camp!

Okay I'm really sorry I keep posting but there's nothing in the post. I accidently press enter when I'm done writing the title, and it posts my thing. SORRY!!!

Anyway, My moms family came over to visit this past week! They stayed over at my house since sunday and they left on Wednesday. They are now staying with my grandma. When they were here, we did a lot of wacky stuff. We pretty much just spyed on my little brother and watched TV and played outside and rode scooters and went to the park and spyed on my little brother some more. My mom has pics, I'll post them when she downloads them


Girls camp was last week!!!
The whole week was so fun!!!!
The first thing the girls did when we got to camp was set up our stuff, the cabins were shaped kind of like the letter "A", so there was a bottom floor and a top floor!!!
I slept on the top floor with Emma, Jessie, Courtney, Camilla, and Sara!
When we were done setting up our stuff, we went outside and explored the site.
One of the first things I noticed right off were the potguts.
There were like, a billion of them!!!!!!
Potguts are like squirrels, but with shorter and not so bushy tails, and they're fat.
Like, WAY fat.
One was so fat, it had bellyrolls.
We named him Gus.
After we were done setting up stuff and naming potguts, we went to a fireside. We had them every morning and night, but this one was just for the rules and stuff. We sang lots of songs, and just went over the rules. Then we headed back to camp for about a half an hour, then we went to Waterfront! Waterfront was a bunch of cool games that we played by the lake. We did games on the lake in canoes, we did some twister games, and some balance games!! It was way fun!!!
Okay, so we went back to our cabins, and we just played with the potguts some more!! We even made a royal family! Prince Charles, Princess Pat, and, well I can't remember the other names. But it was fun! Then we went to another fireside and sang more songs, then my ward did "Who is your hero" Thing, and our hero was Hannah Belnap. Then we went back to our cabins and played even more games, then we started a fire and roasted starbursts and marshmallows.
Then we just went to our cabins and talked for like an hour and went to bed.

Day 2
Day two was amazing!
Me and the other girls woke up early- To early! We didn't have to go to a fireside that morning so we could've slept in!!! We had muffins for breakfast, and then we went on our BIG HIKE!
It was really hard. And steep. And hard. Camp Mia Shalom is in a bowl of mountains, and we hiked to the very top! I took a pic of the veiw. It's pretty awesome!
When we got back to our cabins, we all took showers. (There were actually showers, and real toilets! Not those crappy port a pottys!!! LOL) The water was freezing. but it felt good. Then we went to the 41st birthday of our camp, and then we played a lot of cool camp games! Then we went back to our cabins and Sister Ritchie got out some phone wire and we all made necklaces and bracelets and stuff! It was so cool!
After dinner we were all sitting around the campfire and looking at the stars and singing. Very special moment.

Day 3
I didn't know so much stuff could happen in one day.
My cabin- no 4- started off the day with throwup.
Jessie Carlson -one of my BFs- threw up at about 2:00 AM.

Here's kind of a mental picture for you.

Throwup ----------My head.

The throw up got on my stuff so I had to clean stuff.
I think I maybe got 4 to 5 hours of sleep.
Sister Ritchie woke me and Emma up to make breakfast.
It took me 10 minutes to get out of my sleeping bag.
Me and Emma made a cowboy breakfast.

Bread+Eggs+Ham+Salt= Cowboy breakfast.
It was delicous.
After breakfast we went to another fireside.
Then we went canoing again. It was really fun!
Then we made boondoggles and stuff for like, three hours.
After dinner we went to singing trees.
That was one of my favorite parts of camp.
Singing trees is when all the different wards go into the forest and they each stand under a tree and sing a soft song.
Our ward sang a medly of about five songs.
We were awesome.

Day 4
The bishop and his wife came up to Camp Mia Shalom for our testimony meeting.
Everyone bore their testimony, even me.
It was very emotional.
Everyone cried--- EVEN ME!
Then when it was over we dried our faces off and hugged everyone then started crying again then hugged everyone again. We were just so pooped that we went straight to bed.
In the morning we woke up early, loaded the truck, got on the busses, and went home.
I think I slept on the bus, but I'm not sure.
When I finally got home I tried to take a nap.
It didn't work.

My moms birthday, Fourth of July, and Father & Childrens Campout!!!!!!!!!

I don't have any pictures yet, but I PROMISE to post them when my mom downloads them!
Okay, I have a lot to catch up on!
First of all, my moms birthday was on June 26! She woke up to Rasberry donuts and lots of balloons! My dad gave her 100$!!! So she spent the day taking me and my brothers out do do stuff! We went out to lunch, then we saw the Hannah Montana movie! (You have to see it, one of the best movies ever!!!)
Afterwards we went home, let the dog out to go to the bathroom, changed into our swimsuits, and went to the Orem Rec center! It was really fun, we all went swimming and played with water toys!!!

Okay, next is the Fourth of July! It was amazing! On July third, me, my gramma, and my aunt and uncle and my aunts kids came over and we went to the freedom festival! It was fun!
Okay, then that day like almost ALL of my moms family slept over. I had my aunt, my uncle, my other and and uncle, their three girls, and my gramma! It was a full house that night!!!
On the fourth of July, we woke up early and saw the hot air balloons outside! They were really cool! Then we all got dressed and went to the parade! We met almost ALL of my dads family there, and that was really awesome!!! The floats and things were really prettty this year!!!!!
After the parade we went to the Scera Park! It's like a tradition, same place, same tree EVERY YEAR!!! But this time it was kind of a bummer because they had this Ellis Island in the park thing, but we checked it out and it was fun! We played football, had lunch, climbed trees, and everything!!!
Then we went home and rested up.
At like, five thirty, we went to Thanksgiving point for the free firework show!!!! They had a band playing, and it was like, old fashioned music, so me and my cousin were dancing and having fun and laughing! The fireworks were amazing, and they lasted a long time!!!! They has some really awesome ones this year!!!! Afterwards we went home and went to bed.

The last thing is the Father and childrens campout! That was on Friday-Saturday, and it was really fun! I invited my friend Jessie Carlson to come with us because her dad wasn't going, so she just went with us! On the way there, we stopped to eat at Wendys, (for the girls) and Subway, (for the boys). Then we went on the road! It took probably an hour to get there, but it was still fun! On the dirt road that was like, a mile away from the campsite, there was this hill thing on the wall that my dad went on that turned our car like, sideways!!! IT WAS SO FREAKY!!! ME AND JESSIE PRACTICLY SCREAMED OUR BRAINS OUT!!! But then we got to the campsite, and it was pretty fun! Me and Jess used up like, all of the disposable cameras film in like, an hour! Then we used the digital camra, and took some really pretty pictures! I'll have to post them, There's a couple pics that are so good that they could be used as screen savers! But anyway we were all taking pics and stuff then we went around the campfire, and talked about the prestood. Then some grownups went to bed, but most of the kids started playing flashlight tag! It was really fun!!!! Then most of the kids went to bed, and me and Emma, (my other friend that came) started talking to Colin Rubow and it was fun, our conversation went from books, to movies, to horses, to teeth, to books again, and to movies again! It was fun, then Colin went to bed and me and Emma stayed up with the older kids, but the only thing we did was just sit and stare at the fire! It was actually pretty fun! Then we went to bed, but I couldn't sleep so I went up to the fire again for about ten minutes. But Owen had found this huge moth and it was keeping everybody up cause it was trying to get out of the case Owen put it in. So I slept like, six hours cause I woke up at six o clock, and I don't know why! Then we had breakfast burritos, made bo's and arrows, then had the Mountain Man Games! That was Fun, we had ax throwing, bow and arrow shooting, and after those we had a one hundred yard dash! I won first place in my age group, wich had like, eight people in it!!! It was really fun!!! Then we went home and unloaded and played with our bo's and arrows, then I went in and had dinner, then I went to a BYU soccer game, and that was fun, except BYU scored two points and they still lost to the other stupid team that only scored one point. Im still mad about that. Then when me and my mom got home it was like ten thirty, so we watched the movie Inkhart, it's really good!!!! Then we went to bed at like twelve o clock.

That's all I needed to catch up on!!!
