A cool lizard

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

One of the boys caught a small horny toad! It’s really a lizard, not a toad, but it’s a special kind that can hiss, drop its tail, squirt blood from a spot near its eye. This kind of lizard is covered with short spikes, and it has a lot of defense mechanisms, so people think it’s really fierce. But it’s really a small, shy animal that only eats ants. After a few minutes he let it go.

Ryan at the rifle range

The rifle range is cool! It’s not too crowded, so our other leader and I were able to shoot. Here’s are some pictures where Ryan is shooting.

At camp

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

Ryan and I are at scout camp now. We had a great dinner and a fun day. It’s very beautiful here, and there are many activities. Ryan and I both failed our swimming test because of the cold water, but the others passed.

We will be working on a special award called, Duty To God at Camp. Each day we will have a short devotional and discuss a church topic. Everyone will read scriptures and write in a journal daily.

Our activities include rifle shooting, swimming, archery, crafts, canoeing, and many other interesting things. There was an evening campfire program with fun songs and skits.

Here are a couple of pictures:

Beef stew for dinner

We are eating Carol’s fantastic beef stew for dinner. And she even made cinnamon rolls for dessert!

The boys knew I was taking a picture, so they were a little silly.

Mobile blogging?

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

I have not written anything for a long time. Maybe I can improve… This is a test to see if I can post from my phone. Maybe that will help.

That’s a picture of Carol, Nick, and Ryan in the Provo Freedom Festival 5k. They all ran really well!
