I Forgot to Mention ...

I spent last week at Girl's Camp!

There is nothing like being in the mountains with a pack of beautiful young women. And by "pack" I mean 350 girls.

There is a spirit there unlike any place I've ever been.

It's light ... that shines in the face of each and every girl.



At camp, there's a lot of bonding, which includes singing, dancing, laughing, crying ...

and screaming ... happy girl screaming.

I love all that stuff, don't you?



They were good to each other, these beautiful girls ... and, they were good to me.

They even put up with my snoring ... which was muffled a bit by someone who talked in their sleep. I could hear it through my ear plugs. It was quite the conversation.


They keep me young, these lovely young women.

Want to know the best camp prank? Claire's friend Lindsay had packets of sun screen that she slit open and filled with cream cheese. She walked up to innocent bystanders and said "Hey, you look like you are getting sunburned! Want to borrow some of my sunscreen?"



Hysterically funny watching someone rub cream cheese all over their arms and legs.

You have to be a good sport to survive girls camp.

Best skit? The adult leaders who spoofed Twilight.



However, Claire was pretty hilarious as Tina-Tina Sha-noose. You have to watch SNL to appreciate the Tina thing. I don't .... watch SNL, that is, so I was in the dark along with most of the moms in attendance.

Watch at your own risk. The girls made up this skit themselves.

I repeat, the girls made up this skit themselves.



Sad to be home again really. I loved girls camp that much.

Girls Camp is by far my BEST memory! I went for 8 summers {since I turned 12, July 27th, they let me go to the summer I was 11!} I have also gone several times as I leader and LOVE IT!

I have to admit...I have never been to a full week of girls camp in my life...despite the fact that I was born and raised LDS. There was always something the"came up." Cheer camp, drill team camp, vacation...something. This year however, I am going as a leader and secretively VERY NERVOUS! No showers, no makeup, no high heels!!! YIKES! Hope the girls make up for bad. :::Fingers crossed:::

PS...I am from Utah and don't say UTE-tah, or MOUNT-tain, or Crick :) But is was funny!
