Our stake theme was "Keep calm and stand in holy places" and our ward theme was "Keep calm and learn." Our girls decided to put a nerdy twist on the theme and dress up with suspenders, nerdy glasses and pocket protectors.
They put on an awesome skit that was set to the tune "Part of your world" but had the message of "Part of His World" where part of the girls were investigators singing their questions about the gospel and the other part were missionaries answering their questions and hoping they will all become "Part of His World."
At the end of camp Annie's award was "Mud Slingin', wasabi burnin' ginger hair camp beauty." The mud slinging was from the beach day we had at Jordanelle and she and her friend Lauren got into a mud fight on the shore. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera to record the ruckus. But luckily the mud slinging too place next to a big ole' lake they could clean off it! The "wasabi burning" refers to the 3 mile hike we went opn were our hike leader had wasabi almonds as a snack. Not everyone would try them but Annie- true to her mother's form- isn't afraid to try new food so she had some. She didn't mind the heat from the wasabi in her mouth but her eye sure didn't like it. She had been having trouble with her contacts while on the hike and after she ate the almonds she didn't realize that the wasabi residue was on her fingers still when she went to rub her eye. Poor girl had an angry wasabi red mark on her eye where she touched it for the rest of camp. Then of course the "ginger hair camp beauty" refers to her beautiful red hair.
Here is one last picture from camp.
If you have ever seen the movie "17 Again" then you have heard the sentiment that Finn feels a lot these days- he is hungry all the time!
Here he is enjoying some hot wings he walked over to get from Little Caesar's one summer afternoon.
One last summer-boredness inspired picture.
