Birthday Celebration at the Relief Society Camp Out!

Thanks to my Mom and my sister, Amber I was able to attend the Stake Relief Society Camp Out. It was so much fun! It gave me a chance to get to know a few more of the ladies in the Panama ward and spend some time with some of the ladies from the Silver Creek ward. Apparently we were the wild bunch because we were the last to go to bed. For most of the night we played a game call Sum. I think I hold the record for being the sum the most amount of turns. I guess I'm not very good at the game. Just before we headed to our cabin we stopped by the campfire to see if anyone was there. There was a camp fire but nobody around. We stood around it long enough to prove to everyone at home that we actually went camping, put out the fire, and then headed to bed. When I walked into the mesh hall the next morning I was greeted by a beautiful birthday bouquet of balloons and twigs on our table. Definitely camper style! I was also given a card from everyone in our little group. Somehow the night before they had passed this card around. I had no idea when or how they were able to pull that off. During breakfast I was given a cake which was consisted of two ding dongs. One had 2 candles and the other had six. 26! Other camper style touch. After breakfast we continued our game of scum up until we had to separate for mini classes. We spent the rest of the morning learning how to organize our lives so that we can have more time to relax, spend time with our families, and serve others. It was a great camp out. I loved the chance to get to know some of the ladies of the ward. We need to have another scum night! Lots of fun!
