Friday night Campfire

I told some of the Arlington Ward Campout history (we've been coming to Camp Joseph for 25+ years) and favorite memories at the campfire tonight.  I told about the time we woke up and Jodi and Jesse Aldous had packed up in the middle of a rainy night and went home.  And the time Brian Sweeney slept under the stars and when he woke up someone had put a blanket over him.  And he felt like it could have been anyone in the ward (it was Deb Butler).  And when the Duke family hiked up Patriarch Hill and planted a tree the first campout after their dad had passed away.  And we'll never forget the year the Adams rented a RV and brought it!  The stories and memories and friendships are endless.  This is a very special place (where Joseph Smith was born) and a wonderful tradition for the Arlington Ward.  #arlingtonwardcampout2016 #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever
