Three badges for proof..

Sleeping on a hard floor, giggling little girls into the wee hours of the night, camp fires and quality time with my daughter.
We did it, we survived our first overnight Sparks-girl Guide camp out, we had a wonderful time, it was something Jennifer will remember for a lifetime.
It started off with a severe thunderstorm but that didn't dampen the spirits of our little campers, they won over the sun and it shone beautifully for the remainder of the weekend.
We had nature hikes, crafts, dancing, sing songs and we ate ourselves silly. The favourite event was the camp fire, mine too, cuddling up with my girl, sharing some time with her friends.
It was a long night trying to get some shut eye, the little campers giggled, shared jokes and just didn't want the fun to end. They finally drifted off and the old girl I am tossed and turned into the wee hours of the night trying to get comfortable. I didn't have much success, it didn't matter really when I saw the look on my Puddin' Pops face when she opened her eyes at first light.
So for coming to the camp out ,Jennifer got three badges and I got some wonderful one on one with my big girl. All went home very happy...
A huge thank you to Jennifer's leaders, Elizabeth and Lisa, your amazing ladies and role models for our girls. Can't wait to see you in the fall.
