Pioneer Weekend Camping Trip

Andrea is getting ready to cook breakfast. We ended up
eating hash browns, bacon, eggs, and juice. I even wore my
Brazil hat. We had a great time.
Dave is fixing Jayson's bike after he crashed.

O'Ryan Ethington, Jonah Hjelm, Kellyn Bennett, and Sasha camping.
They are all good friends

Jayson had to put up a tent all by himself and sleep in it
for one of his Boy Scout requirements. He did it successfully
and had a nice quite time in his own little hide away. Good Job, Buddy!

Once a year, on or near the 24th of July, our church celebrates Pioneer Day in remembrance of the Mormon Pioneers arriving in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. Our stake, which is 9 congregations big, go camping down near the Nisqually River. It is a gorgeous piece of property. We camped in our trailer and had a great time. I even managed to play a softball game. Let me tell you, softball is not for the faint hearted. Even though it is supposed to be for fun, it gets very competitive. We even had church outside. It is wonderful singing the hymns of Zion outside in the very cathedral that was created for us to enjoy. We could hear the birds singing and we saw the sunlight streaming through the trees. It was breathtaking. We are blessed to live in such a grand place.
