I triumph over teenagers!!!!

So, I did it! I beat the odds and came back alive from girls camp! And I am happy to report that we didn't even have a need for the "fight tent"! We have some awesome girls! I think I may have had more fun then they did. Although, I will say that the FREEZING cold nights and 15 minute walk to the bathroom wasn't the best but..... Now I know there are some of you that will say that camping with an air mattress and a bathroom within walking distance isn't really camping, but to you I say "BOO!" When offset by the fact that I was camping with teenage girls, I say I deserve a few conveniences!

Highlights of our trip:
1. Rikki got an impromptu haircut!

2. Some of us aquirred nicknames ie: Amber is SeaShell Rikki is Titanium (ask her way she can't
float) and Bri is Fanny Pack. (feel free to call them these, I'm sure they'll love it:)

3. NO SUNBURNS!!! This is amazing for a group of girls who all want a tan!

4. Apartently, this is what I look like when I go co co bannanas in a tent!

5. Girls made a flag and cheer for camp which was hillarious! "Were Anoka, were HUMBLE! (but we don't talk about it)" It was really funny.

6. We did a service project for the camp. We painted all of the signs for the campsites. Apparently this proved to be difficult for some wards which I don't quite understand.

7. Rikki tried to spit on Elizabeth. 'nuff said

8. We had AWESOME food!!!

9. Had an amazing lake to swim/canoe in!

10. I took some cool random pictures!

All and all, I'd say it was a pretty fantastic week!

I'm glad you guys had a good time at camp. I wish I could say I am jealous, but I think you know me a little better than that...;-)

I'm hoping the person cutting hair is Julie and not some random young woman???

Looks like way too much fun for me...ok, I just don't really like camping, and never really liked girls camp...but I'm glad you had a great time. In my book there's a lot to be said for being able to come back and say you had a good time.
