Lowther Family Reunion

Keiths family got together up at the Heber Valley Girls Camp. What startd out as a three day weekend adventure, for us, turned into a day of fun followed by another. Derek was throwing up pretty much everything he ate. Despite derek not feeling well, and the continous throw up incidents, we had a good time. Here's what went on...... We did some obstacle courses that required teamwork and trust that were a lot of fun. We had to relate what we learned to the gospel. There was a zip line, but in order to reach it, we had to climb a 20 foot pole and make our way across another pole at the top. There were cabins that had bunk beds to sleep at night, but with dereks throw up mess, we didn't stay.
This was the favorite part.. at the time it wasn't....but looking back, I'm glad we did it. There was this giant swing. They harnessed us up and hooked us to a rope that pulled us up more than 30 feet to a tree, and then we let go of the rope, and.. well.. we swung!! Talk about adreinaline rush!! (I tried to put a video on ,but for some reason, it didn't work :(

We had like a three minute car ride from the swing back to camp, and Derek fianly fell asleep on the short way there. He was exhausted! Keith saw a doe and her fawn in our camp It was a fun trip and we were so glad to see Keiths family. It will sure be one to remember!
