We went to our Ward Campout this weekend. We had so much fun. It was about an hour and a half away and was just gorgeous! We were right by a river and a little stream. Both were freezing, but the kids had a blast playing in the water. I swam out to a big rock in the middle of the river with Arwen on my back. The kids out on the rock had a good laugh at her "No-Like-It's" as we swam in the freezing water, then before I could even warm up she wanted to get back in. So, I think, hands down, our kids won the prize for being the dirtiest kids in the universe. By the end of the day, they were black. We'd hose them off before bed, then when they'd wake up, it would take only minutes before both of the klutz's would fall and get covered in blackness. I caught Noah eating spoonfulls of dirt. Gross!! They also win the prize for waking up the earliest! Arwen and Noah had fun with their friends Evan, Dallin,Eden, and Tanner. Noah and Evan are the same age and we caught them giving each other huge hugs. It was sweet. We had lots of yummy food and nice fires. Joshua did just great. He's a natural camper. He slept so snug in his little bear outfit!
Arwenisms: "I don't know what it is, but I know what it eats like." Translation (I think)--It's yummy.

Noahisms: "Maggots." He will stand at the fridge and scream for the MAGNETS.
He sings this little song of everything he loves. It goes like this: "Ahhh, Mommy, ahhh Daddy, ahhh Sissy, ahhh baby, ahhh Grandpa, ahhh blankey."
He runs around the house saying, "Ut Dis?" (what this) to everything. It's so fun.

Looks like fun! Wish we could have been there! Ok, I'll be honest, I hate to camp(the dirt and kids drives me nuts), but I could have handled 1 night! Plus, from what I remember from Troy being in charge of it, didn't it have flushable toilets? (That's the other part I hate!)

It had pretty nice toilets--clean even! The dirt just about kills me too, but I tried SOOO hard not to let it bug me. I complained too much about it, but overall we had lots of fun!

Are you kidding? Somebody has 2 boys named Evan and Dallin too. That's bizarre! It kills me how old Noah looks. I think he should be a little runt like the last time I saw him (a year ago). Joshua looks as snug as a bug in a rug. Cute!
