day 3 of the ward family reunion.
i only got to go to the dinners on thursday and friday
obviously, because of work,
but the funny part was on friday,
when we took our camp to the park by the natatorium for lunch
there was my WHOLE family...eating lunch in the park.
talk about clash of 2 worlds...

but today... was ward cabin at karney lakes day!
sure do love it up there.
almost the whole ward family was there
swimming, hiking, paddle boating, you name it.
it was an all around good time.
and my favorite part about ward family reunions?
the food.
dang, the wards know how to cook.
bbq ribs for dinner was indeed the highlight.
i was perfectly stuffed the entire time.
ahhh gotta love family reunions :)
 
<3 my cousins
if you look close enough you can tell this isnt dirt...its tons of tiny frogs!


 


Friday

08.13.10

stayed up till 3 last night with nancy giggling 
and copying pictures onto cds for some of the kiddos.
seriously can't believe that camp is over!
we celebrated the last day by going to the natatorium pool downtown.
the kids LOVE the hydrotube, 
and continually went down in all day long.
we hardly ever saw any of them!
which...was kind of sad.
but they had a good time
and it was great last day.
i sure will miss my kiddos!

*this picture isnt from today, but can you see JUST HOW PERFECT this shot is?
kassie took it, and everytime i look at it, i just bust up laughing...
this is the one picture i managed to take today.
i really shouldnt have favorite children,
but if i did,
this would be one of them.
she is seriously the mini version of me.
dang im going to miss them all!

Thursday

08.12.10

i can hands down
honestly say
that today was the 
BEST DAY OF CAMP EVER!
we had our end of the year carnival,
and it was a complete success.
bounce house, snow cones, ring toss, cake walk, picture booth, fortune telling
seriously.
it was so fun. and stress free.
and i think the kids had an absolute blast!
cause i know i did!

Wednesday

08.11.10

mmmmmmmmmmmm how i LOVE summer thunderstorms.
it rained cats and dogs today
and it smelled SO GOOD outside.
we got jipped out of our 2nd to last pool day at camp,
which means i didnt get my free snowcone from snowcone mad trevor,
but the awesome weather was pretty much worth it.
PLUS i took my last final
and although it was absouletly brain frying
and 3 hours of torture
its DONE and that is really all that matters.
then, we had our end of the year staff BBQ,
and it was definitely a blast and a half
we talked
we laughed
we exchanged gifts
and had some delicious ribs that kassies hsuband cooked for us.
ahhh im going to miss working with these guys everyday!

Wednesday

08.04.10

i recently realized that im pretty sure im like 12 years old. 
read here (4th one down)
and today was another confirmation of that.
it was pool day,
and i had several adults look at me strangely cause i was having so much fun.
im pretty sure they are just jealous or something...
then nancy, kassie (my coworkers) and i went to the movies...
and our twelve year old friends from camp met us there.
yes its true.
we had so much fun!

ahhhhh today was a good day.

Tuesday

08.03.10

hum...well lets see...
today i was attacked by a child.
totally serious.
i was hit
kicked
scratched...(more like clawed)
spit at
punched
and cursed at several times...

it was kind of funny after the fact.
but not so much during.

so what made my day happy you ask?
watching shark week
and ignoring the 7 chapters of music theory i have left.
happy tuesday :)

Monday

08.02.10

highlights of today were:
1. listening to sam convince one of the children that he ate one of the ducks in the park, and was going to catch a bird to eat next
2. listening to that same girl tell sam how he shouldnt do that because the duck will quack in his stomach, and then eat the bird.
*just so you know, i have some of the WEIRDEST kids at my camp...
3. having a movie night at nancy's and watching dear john. cute movie, not as good as i thought it would be, but channing tatum was in it, so thats all that really matters, right?

happy monday!
