I'm sad to say that this is the only picture I have from girls camp 2012...and it wasn't even taken at camp! The night before we headed up on the mountain for camp, lightning struck not too far away from our camp area and started another fire. We could see the smoke and the flames when we were driving. Once we reached the campground, we were told not to unpack anything because they might be sending us home. We had a long devotional up at them ampitheater and then went to our ward campsites to eat our lunches and wait for word. About an hour later, we saw two fire marshall truck drive up the road...they were moving pretty fast. Then 15 minutes later they came around to each of the camps and told us we had 20 minutes to evacuate. We loaded the girls up and headed back home...a total of 2 1/2 hours on the mountain!! But when we arrived home, things had gotten worse there with the Wood Hollow fire. We took the girls to the stake center to watch the movie UP and make their camp crafts while they were making plans on where to spend the rest of the week. About half way through the movie we got word that Fairview was being evacuated and the people would be staying with people in Mt. Pleasant and Spring City and also at the shelter set up by the Red Cross at North Sanpete high school. Needless to say, we took the girls home so they could be with their families. This picture was taken at our "day camp" held at the old church in Spring City. The speaker had each of the girls write something on their balloon that was weighing them down in life and then each of us were invited to come outside where we let those worries go. What an awesome idea!!
