Girls Camp with Kassie!

One of the perks of being Stake YW President is having a hand in some of the planning of this fun event, and being able to see and play with cute Kassie during the week! And the all-time highlight was of course the surprise soda/muffin/melon visit from Aunt Kas, Kenny and Skye!! It was a success, even after being rained out at the start of summer, and having to reschedule it to the last week of summer before school started. Biggest tender mercy: the nonstop rains... it kept the AWFUL HEAT away!! Here are some fun videos:

Fun camp memories: Filming our stake skit was a blast... we continue to get compliments on it being the funniest thing people have ever seen; 'Big Smile' game... Jennie bringing her ortho tool and making us talk with it; Putting pantyhose over our head and going to the nurse like terrorists saying "Can I get a bandaid? I don't feel so good"; me constantly putting snacks in front of the other leaders and they always ate them; Singing Trees with fire ants and poisonous snakes...and they all kept singing; Shannon "nancing" around in my "giant" bra that was airing out on my bed post, wow; Singing our stake song at flag, and watching the girls wince right before we pelted them with fire ball candies; During my closing talk, Shannon yelling at me from the back of the room to 'speak up'... Unbeknownst to her, I was illustrating how the Holy Ghost speaks in a whisper... hilarious.

Grandma does Virtual Reality!

Priceless lifetime memory... Mom trying out the kids' silly virtual reality video gaming toys! The videos are priceless:

Stephen: Grandma, listen to me and follow my instructions. I’m like the Holy Ghost.
Mom: See I’m shooting them – this is the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.
Stephen: Shoot the words, Grandma.
Mom: There’s words on there? Where? Oooooh, scary ugly guys.  Alright, so I’m done, right? That was the scariest thing ever. (dripping sarcasm)

Stephen gets his drivers license... good boy!

Our annual eat lunch at HP with dad day!
