St George in JUNE?!?!

That is right folks. I went to St George in June...it was WARM! Seriously Warm! It was 113 pretty much the entire time I was there. Night and Day. I should have melted. Luckily it was too dry for that. 
I drove down there and met up with these 2 cuties: Tierney and Joy. They drove up from Phoenix, so for them it was probably a nice break from the heat.
This was the purpose of our visit. We  saw Mary Poppins the first night and Mulan the second night. Both shows were great, but I LOVED Mary Poppins! It was AMAZING!
All of these pictures are in no particular order. We fit in quite a bit into a small amount of time.
Here we are fueling up one morning. We did some shopping and I picked up a cute dress and lots of nail polish. Oh and we all got new sunglasses (see below).
We headed out to Zion's to check out the scene's. We did most of our sightseeing from the car from the heat, but it was beautiful none the less.
Here were are me and my Cousin! in a very very beautiful place. It kinda looks like I photoshopped those mountains in the back in, but I didn't that was really there.
This one looks like Tierney Photobombed this photo. She was suppose to be there though. I assure you. 
We got sucked into this little tourist trap. It was a fun little place.
Like a pro.
This was outside a trading post, where I bought the most Amazing ring.
At some point we went and jumped in a lake. We went to Gunlock, I lured them there with promises of a cool river to play in. It was unfortunately dried up so instead we swam in the lake. Which was still quite fun and refreshing. 
This is a perfect description of our relationship. Cute little Tierney.
Such a fun weekend. I should make them do that again. I wonder what is playing at Tuacahn next year! I should probably go in the spring or fall though. Cause middle Summer was just TOO Hot!

GIRLS CAMP!

I got to go to Girls Camp again! It was so much fun! The perks of working with the Young Women. I will say that I had some trouble remembering that I was a leader though. I blame the Young Women's President, she was my Young Women's President  when I was in Young Women's. It is really fun though.
This is a cute picture of the Beehives when we got to camp. 
Then buckle up for some classic around the campfire shots
One of the Greatest Parts was that we all had Ukelele's. It was so much fun. We all decorated our own. I made the mistake of ordering a black one. I don't know what I was thinking. Everyone else had these fun colorful Uke's and I had a boring black one. So I added polka dots!
These ladies REALLY wanted to go down the river. That would come later. Sadly I missed the rest of the activities the first day, I had to leave for a little bit to go to school. So I missed a real fun game and a pretty awesome craft project.
In the mornings we had devotionals at the amphitheater they were all great. The Laurels did a great job with them. Our fearless Camp Director (that would be the Bee on the left) had some great Bee puns for us. 
We also had some memorable flag ceremonies We even had all the value colors for when we said the theme. Then there were skits, of course you know there will be skits at girls camp. This year they had to do it in song form. 
They were pretty dang AMAZING!
Then we had the Stake Presidency come out. They had a song prepared and it was pretty AWESOME!
They sang "You Don't Know You're Beautiful" the girls LOVED it!
They even had some groupies up front dancing with them.
This activity was mine. I spent a long time with it, and I was so happy with how it turned out. It was a Amazing Race/Survivor type of race. The girls had to complete a task that had to do with each of the Young Women's values and once they gathered all the values they could go to the temple. It was really fun.
This ropes course took me forever to set up, but it was so worth it. This was hilarious to watch.
This here is the winning team. They were so great. 
We finally made it down to the river. It was fun to watch them. I was the catcher at the end of the river. It was a interesting job. Mostly because the camp host guy came down and yelled at me for being the only one in the river and being too far down. Then he said there were people coming now so I had to walk upstream to stop them earlier. Well it was VERY cold, and VERY deep. So I had quite the swim. 
More Ukelele Fun!
This was just about the most precious moment ever. We were having a devotional, and our cooks had to head off to get our lunch ready and they walked off hand in hand. It was SO precious!
Time to go. The girls were wheeling the bishop around. 
All in all it was Wonderful! I am so glad that I got the opportunity to go this year!
