Last weekend was our ward camp out in Payson. We decided to go but take very few things to make it an easy trip. So we decided to just sleep in the back of the truck on our air mattress and put the kids in the cab. We had a really good time that evening looking for sticks for marshmallows and roasting them was even better! I think Maura had about 10 marshmallows! We put the kids to bed and visited with some of the people in our ward before we got tired and turned in too. Then at about 2:00 in the morning Maura woke up cold so we put her in bed with us. About 30 minutes after that Timmy woke up too. We were all so cold by that time that we just decided to throw what little we had into the back of the truck and go home. When we got into the truck the thermometer was reading 29 degrees!! We just didn't prepare for it to be so cold!! We stopped in Payson to get a McMuffin and got home at about 5:00 in the morning. We put the kids in bed and we all slept until 9:30. We had a good time, but it was an adventure!! I'll post more pictures later.
We decided to take a trip to Snowflake on Conference weekend to get out of the heat, but the weather there was terrible. The wind blew like a tornado was going to hit! I don't know why we were surprised because the wind always blows there, but this time it was really bad. It didn't stop the kids from playing on Papa's "Park" (swing set), jumping on the trampoline, and visiting Grampa Webb. We had a good time!
