Continue The Winning Summer!

Well, hey there!
There's been more happening this summer! After youth conference was girls camp!
We kicked it off with our 5th year "High Adventure..."
We got up REEEEEALLY early (4am) to see these hot air balloons take off. It was pretty nifty, not gonna lie! Would I arise before the sun shines again to see it? Don't think so.
Then we rappelled of this cliff.
That was TERRIFYING, but I did it!! :D We had a fun time doing that together as 5th years.
I didn't get pictures of girls camp. O.o sorry! But I can list a few highlights:
1. Not being eaten, or even slightly harassed by bears! Hooray for obedience and safety!
2. Certifying shelter building for 6 HOURS straight! We sang the Wise Man/Foolish man song from primary 9 times!
3. Figuring out a spiritual application for cleaning the bathroom! Always fun! Thank goodness it was paired with water purification certification!
4. My ward rocks! I love those girls! Especially when the 4th years came into camp and doubled the size of our ward, we ruled the roll-call!
So, yeah! Girls camp rocks!
Then there was the midnight premiere of Spiderman! It was great! I fell asleep in the beginning though O.o
I guess the next exciting thing was the 4th of July!
 We had a ward breakfast and flag ceremony where Jenna and I played the national anthem! Fun stuff...
There's a fire ban here in the CO which is kind of on fire right now, so we didn't do any fireworks. But we sang around the piano!
That's our family! So yeah, that's all super exciting! Now for this little party...
Summer Homework! Lots of it! If I stick to my plan, I'll have it all done the week before the week before school starts! Wanna know what I have to do? I'll tell you anyway.

Enter The Winning Summer!

This summer has been absolutely wonderful :) I'm so glad it's here :) Here's what I've done!

So I went to EFY for the first time this summer, and it was the best. I'm so glad I went :)

Our company was totally bomb :)
See that banner? It's amazing. I love The Chosen :)
This week was so amazing! I made fabulous friends and magnificent memories! I love these people so much and I can hardly wait for next summer when I can go back to EFY! 

Afterward, I turned 16!!
Mom got me new TOMS <3

Thanks Mom! Then Payton came over with a big pineapple plant-she knows how to bring the party. And my birthday definitely went out with a bang...well, quite a few bangs! All over the houses and cars in the area!
 What the hail? Right? It was a fun birthday though!
Then my cool friends were totally sneaky and they threw me a surprise party! I didn't actually take pictures...I was busy partying. But it was a great time!
Then came youth conference!
Canterberry Crew-Be True! I love my ward :)
This summer has been great so far, and there's more to come!
Have joy this summer, guys!
