I have always said that we need to have a ward campout, so one of the first things I said after David was called as Bishop is exactly that. His response, "Then you're in charge". That'll teach me!! A few months ago we drove ALL over trying to find the best place for our ward to camp. We found Thousand Trails in Descanso, and fell in love. It was so much nicer than the others we went to, and there is so much to do there! Who wants to be in charge of an activity and have everyone bored to tears?!
There was mini golf, an RC track (kinda small, but what do ya want??), bocce ball, horseshoes, swimming, and the list goes on and on and on. I am definitely not one that likes to be in charge, so needless to say, I have had stress for months about all the details. Most were pointless worries. People signed up like crazy for this new adventure and we had such a great turn out.
Mini golfing with friends was first thing Friday.
Eric has worked for weeks trying to get his RC car running. It did run - for about 10 minutes before it died and the pull started pulled all the way out. It was too hot outside for his dad to want to put it back together.
Next stop, swimming pool! David got nice and cooled off, and had fun with his friends:)
We heard a lot of great feedback, so I'm pretty sure it's our First Annual instead of our One and Only Campout. So many people pitched in and helped, and made this a great activity. You Rock, SW1!
