We had a great time Friday night at the Elders quorum BBQ. If you have pictures that you would like me to post, I would love it. My email address is

2007 Ward Campout

This is a shameless attempt to promote our Ward Campout for 2008. It also serves to help reminisce from last year. They were good times. We spent two nights at Anderson Park in Vernonia, Oregon. Here we are fishing at Vernonia Lake, about 3/4 mile away from the campground.
This is a really cool abandoned mill, next to the lake.
We even provided breakfast.
A sighting of some wildlife.
Just hanging out. We did a lot of that.

There were lots of opportunities to ride bikes.

We took over the horse arena. I don't think anyone stepped in any "horse surprise"; if you know what I mean.

Swing batter, batter. Swing!

Daddy Daughter Campout

I thought this chair was rather iconic of our "Daddy/DAUGHTER Campout". We had great weather for our one night campout at Willamette Mission State Park. We want to especially thank Scott Gardiner for organizing this great event. Everyone had a great time; so we hope you organize this again, next year. Thanks again.
We spent some time down by the river, in a van.... wait a second, that is all messed up. We had fun throwing rocks.

Here we are crossing the river, just like the pioneers did.

The water balloon tossing game with a big old sheet. They need to come up with a better name for this game.

Mike Andrus shows us how it is supposed to be done.

Jeff Bake, always the fashion diva (in case you didn't pick it out, he's wearing two different shoes) way to accesorize!

The infamous shoe kick off. I think Rylie Gold won it for the under 25 bracket and Tom Gibbons won it for the over 25 bracket. All those months of training sure paid off! Way to go guys.

Two peas in a pod. Literally.

We roasted marshmellows and breadsticks.

They had a nice paved trail from the campground to the Ferry.

Dinner anyone?
