Back Home From Girls Camp Mia Shalom

I made it back from our church Y/W Girls Camp and thought I would share our camp craft photos with you. My daughter Ashlee (Orem store manager) made up 'Top 10 About Me' kits from Pebbles and they turned out adorable!

Highlights of Girl Camp: Spending time with my daughters Ashlee, Kelsie & Abby (lucky me!), great camp leaders and young women, yummy meals, girl time, night time in our cabins talking, giggling and singing (harmonizing), making tootsie roll poopies and putting them in the toilets, stealing camp flags from other wards and mixing them up, hiking, time around the camp fire, testimony meeting, stargazing and canoeing on the lake... It was wonderful and we all came home very tired and dirty, but with big smiles on our faces!

WARNING: NOT REAL
Tootsie Roll floaties... I know the thought is disgusting, but it sure was fun!
