Two weekends ago our stake had a mother-daughter camp out. I don't have a daughter, but I didn't want to be left out. So when my friend Stacy invited me to join her and her daughter, I jumped at the chance. And I brought Luke. I think he was the only little boy there (which makes sense), but I don't think he even noticed that he was grossly outnumbered. He had a blast.
The camp out was held on the property of one of the families from our ward. They own a big ranch in Gloucester. They had 2 big cabins on their property, complete with ceiling fans over the porch AND a/c units, so I bet you can guess what Luke was doing most of the time.
He also had fun palling around with some of his favorite people from our ward.
Luke ate marshmallows with Sister Allred. He likes her because one time we went to a party at her house, and she had the best air conditioner Luke had ever seen.
Checking out the...
Amber and Sophie rode up with Stacy too, so we had a full car and a full tent. This is Luke and Sophie getting ready for bed. Luke ended up going to sleep about 8:30. I stayed up a lot later talking to friends.
The next morning
Luke got that flashlight special for the trip. He also got his very own sleeping bag. He wanted a Cars sleeping bag-- he'd seen one at Wal-mart awhile back. He wanted one with Filmore on it (because he is green), but since Luke is the only kid in the world who likes Filmore the best, companies don't really make Filmore stuff. Luke settled for Lightning McQueen.
This little girl is in Luke's church class as well as in Luke's pre-K class. He is a big fan of Allie Palmer-- Luke always refers to her by her FULL name. They ran around together a fair bit. Also Luke followed Miss Laurel (Allie's mom) around. I think he showed her his pump about 10 times.
A peacock lives at the ranch! Luke and Allie followed the peacock around. They loved it when it made its VERY loud yelp.
So glad I decided to crash the party!
