Aspen Grove

During the Summer of 2008 I went to Aspen Grove. This part of my life was known to many as Prison :). It was TONS of fun except for
1. we lived on the mountain
When we first got there it was FREEZING
2. the food was disgusting
Thursdays was meat loaf day and by July we left every Thursday to eat in Provo
3. the dorms were disgusting
4. cleanings on Fridays
Large families staying in one cabin during vacation = big NASTY mess
5. being used as slaves
Like picking up rocks from trails and sweeping the parking lot
6. Having nothing to do every night
To compensate for the lack of activities available to us we: did pilates, watched lots of movies in the DH, read Twilight, drive down to Provo to get slurpees or eat lots of candy, but Tuesday nights were fun with pioneer night and free vanilla snow cones YUM

What made it fun was these girls:

These girls are the loves of my life (besides Woody, Jack Sparrow and Harry Potter - which by the way I'm not in love with HP himself, just the books- of course)
From left - right, it's Kim, Paige, Sara, Canda, Me, Natalie.
Canda, Paige, Natalie and me were all in the 0-2 year olds and Kim and Sara were in older groups. I am so grateful for these girls and the impact they have had on my life. I could not have survived the summer without these girls and we had a lot of good times!! And a lot of crazy children :) So even though I would NEVER do it again, I absolutely loved it

Anyways I just was thinking about it and thought I would share :)
