Good, old fashioned fun

We had a great time last night. Our family joined many other families in our ward for our very first ward campout. It was soooo much fun. We stayed at this really cute little campground in our tent. This was the first time in a tent for Blake and he thought it was really cool. I've never seen a kid play and play so much and have so much fun. Tons of kids, tons of food, tons of good friends and good old fashioned fun.

We combined a primary activity and we played games like tug-o-war, 3 legged race, cupcake eating contest, water balloon toss and many others. They were originally going to be just for the primary but of course the adults got involved as well. We played against each other and we even had a tug-o-war contest with another ward that happened to be there. They didn't even stand a chance. It turns out that we are super strong. I'm actually sore from all the playing. Who needs aerobics when you have tug-o-war.

I forgot my camera so I don't have pictures but I know that a lot of people took some so maybe I'll get some later. Camping is my kind of good, old fashioned fun.

It sounds like so much fun! I'm not much of a camper, myself, but I still can't wait till the kids are old enough to go.

Those are my favorite kind of games. I don't know why we try to make events and parties so complicated with the activities when we have such great stand-bys!
