Big Meadow 2011

Yes we went to Girls Camp again this year. Jesús was asked to be in the kitchen again and I was asked to be the 3rd year hike leader. Believe me that struck fear into my heart. It was so difficult to finish that hike last year and I was terrified to do it again. Jesús and I packed our bandannas for camp and of course the kids wanted to wear them too. I found Elena like this as I was pulling out our camping gear.
The cows were daring this year. I heard the were even close enough to sniff one of the tents. I had to do an activity in the meadow and I was nervous that they would charge me. Luckily Jill Galyan saved my life. Isn't the meadow beautiful though? My favorite part of the day was going out before the girls were awake and before the sun came up over the mountain and sit on the meadow and think. That and of course the partaking of Carls cobbler.
Our hike group. Jami Larsen was the hike assistant but she saved me in preparing for the hike and working with the girls. Jesús did go on the hike this year and I was glad to have him with me. He really pushed me to keep going when it got difficult. I love that guy.

I thought it was quirky, or corky. Ha ha ha.
