In the middle of July I went to Girls Camp and let's just say that is exactly where I'm supposed to be. We have the best young women in the world, and not just because they are mine. They really are. We went for 4 days and 3 nights and every single minute was amazing. I just love the girls I serve with and I am pretty sure we weren't very good examples to the girls about being quiet when they were supposed to go to bed at night :) We almost had a few accidents. It was such a good time and I PRAY that I am still in Young Women's next year for camp. I love it.
Then, an hour after I got home from girls camp my family left for a camping trip, but don't you fret, I made sure that I had enough time to shower in between. Everyone was happy about that. We went up to a camp ground in Mantua and it was so fun. We had planned to go to the lake all day on Saturday, but when we got there it said that it was "closed by the health department, so swim at your own risk, but it may cause swimmers itch." Yeah, we had a really hard time making that decision. So we went back and we all played by the creek where they had a rope swing, so we still had a really good time. Then we just hung out and spent time together and it was a blast!
Around the end of July, I got a call from a kid named Cass that I was really good friends with at college and he said he was going to be in town so we should try to get our group of friends from college to go to dinner and then hang out. So I think it was the last weekend in July, we all met up and went to Olive Garden in Salt Lake then we went to Boondocks and went mini golfing. It was seriously so much fun. We all acted like we hadn't ever been apart. It is so fun to see what everyone has been up to and how much everyone's lives have changed. One of them even has a baby!!! So crazy!! I loved that time in my life and that night was so fun to remember all those good times and laugh at how gay we were. Also, I have to thank my cute hubby for going with me and for how well he gets along with all my friends from college. It is awesome! So that was definitely a highlight of my summer, and I think we should do it again soon!!
The first weekend in August we had Youth Conference, and I can't even say enough about how much I loved that! We went and did the program they do at Snow College, and I think that everyone should have the opportunity to do that at some point in their life. It is so fun and such a good way to get the youth to work together and get to know each other better. Plus, I felt like I was in high school again. It rocked.
Then the rest of August was just kinda same old same old :) Lots of swimming and barbeques and sun. And I am so sad that it is over. This was such an awesome summer, I couldn't have asked for more. So that is pretty much the summary of my summer in a few paragraphs. And now I will leave you with a list of random things I love:
Snow cones from the place in Peterson's parking lot
Driving with the windows and the sunroof down and a good song playing on the radio
When Chase kisses me on the forehead with two day old scruff
Watching the sunset on a blanket at the park
Riding in the cart while Chase golfs
The anticipation of my birthday getting closer
Shopping when I DO have money
Updating my blog :)
I love life. This is exactly where I'm supposed to be. I hope everyone enjoyed summer as much as I did. Love you all!!
