Ward Campout

Well this was several weeks ago, but I am just now getting around to blogging about it.  We decided to attend our ward campout because Brett had that Saturday off, and we knew it would be a good opportunity to get to know our ward members better!  We decided to carpool with another fun, young couple in our ward--The Whitings! 

Since Brett had work on Friday, we got a bit of a later start (and we decided we should stop at In-N-Out on our way...ya know...because it's a requirement to incorporate In-N-Out into roadtrips!).  We drove up in Brett's Corolla, and we were packed into the car.  The trunk was full, and the things that wouldn't fit were squeezed into every nook and cranny in the car, including on our laps.  I wish I had gotten a picture!

But the drive wasn't too long, although unfortunately, the ward handed out the WRONG maps to the location they would be at, so after we almost got stuck in the muddy road and when the gas light turned on and we were still looking around with no success, we just pulled off to the side and camped at some random campsite by ourselves.  Aubrey and Thomas couldn't even fit their tent in the car it was so full, so we even shared a tent.  But it worked out, because we were less scared of those weird noises we heard outside with us all in close quarters.  We just kind of laughed at our luck and the fact that we were in the middle of nowhere all by ourselves. 

We really liked these retro pumps

The next morning we woke up, and we headed to the nearest town to get gas.  On our way, we saw an exit off of the main road, not far from where we camped, that sounded familiar.  So after getting gas, we ventured down that road, and sure enough, there was our ward!  So we were able to still get a yummy breakfast and lots of visiting time with our fellow ward members.  And we found out that almost everyone got lost on their way, so we didn't feel so dumb.

We are so glad that we went!  The weather was fabulous and the company was even better!

And on a side-note: Brett and I now both have callings.  Brett is a ward missionary and I am CTR 4 primary teacher (wish me luck--the primary program is this Sunday and I have 6 VERY wiggly kiddos to managae up on the stand!).
