I also learned something new from the girls. Have you heard of roasted Starbursts? Yeah, I was skeptical too, but the girls insisted we try it. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! You roast the Starbursts on a roasting stick, just like a marshmallow. When it starts to bubble around the oustside, it's finished. You let it cool a little so you can get it off the stick, and then enjoy!
They end up kind of crispy on the outside, and full of warm, fruity goo on the inside. Don't knock it 'til you've tried it!
It poured rain the whole night. The next moring on our drive up the canyon for our pre-camp hike, the rain continued to pour. But we were not deterred! We arrived at the trailhead, all donnned our panchos, or converted garbage bags, and away we went! It actually stopped raining about 10 minutes into the hike, and ended up a beautiful day! And it wasn't hot!
Here's some shots of the scenery and the girls. Have I ever told you I love our mountains? Heavenly Father is definitely the most amazing artist. I'm so thankful for all the beauty He surrounds me with each day.
Back to the hike now! We have such a great group of girls, and I am having so much fun spending time with them and getting to know them. I can't wait for camp!
Here's some great video I shot of the river. There's a waterfall just above where we were, and the river is so fast from all the rain we've been having!
Saturday night, Hubby and I had a double date with 2 of our best friends, James and Kimberlee. Kimberlee also happens to be my cousin, and we've grown up together. Kimberlee and I bought MLS (Major League Soccer) tickets for our husbands for Father's Day, and the game was last night. We went to dinner (which made me sick BTW), then to the game. It was soooo much fun! Hubby played soccer his whole life and just loves it, and as I've watched him play in an adult league when we were first married, then coach our kids in soccer, I've grown to love it too.
But trust me...you don't have to appreciate soccer to appreciate soccer players! They are some of the most fit athletes there are. Soccer is a seriously physical game, and they run non-stop!
I wanted to post a couple of videos, because I am seriously amazed at the control these guys have of the ball. It's like they have magic feet or something! Our team is in the red and blue.
I love soccer! The videos are too small to do justice to how awesome it was! I think we're going to save up for some season tickets!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying this beautiful Sabbath Day.
Oh, yeah...and don't forget Mod Podge Mania on Tuesday!
