June 21 YW overnighter and Babysitting Swap

Because we are now having Stake girls camp every year, we thought it would be a good idea to have an overnighter just with the girls from our ward. This way they could bond a little more with one another. The McCauley's were so nice to let us use their cabin and we all had a great time. Tyler gave a devotional on pitching you tents towards the temple and it was great and he enjoyed teaching his old Seminary kids again. After that we began a huge time consuming project by gluing pictures of the temple on these boards with grooves in them and then pouring poly eurothane on them (I'm sure I spelled that wrong!) and every few minutes running a popsicle stick in the grooves for over an hour. They turned out great though and looked like tiles! The next morning the girls, and Tyler and Matt and I all helped to rake pine needles around the cabin for a little service project and to say thank you for letting us use your cabin! All the girls ended up being the kind that get carsick, so I gave up my front seat and I ended up puking on the side of the road on the way home!

The Schafers are some very good friends of ours. They have 3 boys and twin boy and girl that are 6 weeks younger than Peyton. Noah, pictured below with Ben is just 1 week younger than Ben. The older 2 boys are pretty close in age to Micah and Jacob too. Anyway, we have been doing a babysitting swap with them because out kid situation is similar and our kids get along so well. We just found out that they are moving in August to Bakersfield! I am really very sad about this and plan on keeping in touch. She told me today that she would come back to town to go see Twilight with me when it comes out, so I'm going to hold her to it!
Me and my baby girl.
Peyton and Joshua holding hands, aren't they so cute?!
They kept studying each other. We will really miss you Schafers!!!

How fun you are in YW!!! I was in for 3 1/2 years. They ended up releasing me when Justin was born, but I loved every minute of it!! We have 50 YW. Is that crazy?! I'm so glad you could do a little overnighter. Stake camp is great, but you are so right about needing them to bond as a ward.
The babies were just adorable! I love baby play dates. They just make me smile!
