Latest quilt now at the quilters. It is for a girl at work that is getting married. I am calling it a picnic quilt. One she can throw on the grass and have a picnic on. It is bordered in denim and the back is orange polka dot flannel.


The theme this year was GEMS. Girls Embracing Moral Standards. I think it was by far one of the best themes we have had because it had meaning to it.

The pictures are out of order but I can't figure out how to get them in order. Oh well.

This years Youth Camp Leaders were some of the funnest girls we have ever had. They were so willing to help out and made everyone feel a part of the group. They played a signs game which was fun to watch.
Wednesday we did our traditional trip to Echo lake. The girls and leaders had a great time.
Before we left that day, we did a service project of pavers for the amphtheater which will help cut down on the dust and dirt. Yeah!!! Each of the girls got to decorate one and then we put a sealent on it so hopefully it will stay.

Stephanie and Maria trying to stay warm.

We have the best Priesthood leaders who are willing and excited to come stay with us.

If you can believe it, the one doing the fingers was President Cutler.
We had such a great time. I never want to stop going to camp. I think they will have to close the gate and ban me before I stop going.

It was kind of weird to have the celebrations on Saturday instead of the 4th but it was still fun. We did the usual 4th activities, Parade, BBQ, kids swim, and fireworks. The only thing not so normal about it was the cool weather. Instead of hiding from the sun at the parade and BBQ, we were looking for it. I actually wore a jacket to the fireworks. Today however, we are back in the 90's.

youth conference 2010

Youth Conference this year was fun if I do say so myself. We started the conference with a delicious breakfast made for us by our Stake Young men leaders.

Even President Cutler got in on the cooking..
After breakfast, we set out to do our service project. This year, we decided tohelp a ward in the Inter city mission which Craig and Linda Schow have been serving. We met at their church and after hearing the sweet and very moving testimonies of Elder and Sister Schow, we split the Youth into groups. We had lawns to mow, apartments to clean, and arbors to paint.

When the service project was finished, everyone went home to change and get ready to head up to our Stake Property.

There were games...(Minute to Win It was a hit)

Lynne's son and daughter came up and taught the youth how to swing dance. They all had smiles on their faces and had a friends were made!!! :)

what a cute couple... nice skit outfit!!!

Tank and Commander game..
When we got to the property, well ok actually a little before we got there, we found out there was a water leak and the water had been shut off. That meant a revival of the "biffies".

Borther Kelly from the high school seminary came and did a fabulous talk on friends. He looks like one of the kids!

Girls Camp, here we come....
