The end of the year Boy Scout Mt. Hood camp out!

I don't know the correct order of the pictures. There are a lot. You have been warned. I love them all!

My guys. L-R Christopher, Russell and Donovan.

My boys at breakfast time. They are looking a little chilly! They took breakfast burritos to warm by the fire.

One of my favorite pictures.

Another favorite.
Our van with 4 inches of new snow which is sitting on 4 feet of snow!

Another favorite picture. I loved this one so much I made it my background on the computer.

The tent where my guys spent the night.

Another favorite shot. Those flakes coming down are HUGE!

Overall - it looks the scouts had a great snow camp out! All this sledding makes me want to camping up on Mt. Hood this very minute! (With lots of hot cocoa in tow of course. ) lol

All I can think to say is, "WOW!" Those are amazing pictures and looks like a wonderful/fun/exciting/gorgeous scenery/many memories kind of trip for them!

Great pictures. I especially love all the ones that you stated were your favorite, the snow is so beautiful. Glad the boys had a good campout.

Soooo beautiful!!! I wish Russ had on the bright blue bib. Darn it! LOL! I'm still glad I'm here at home all nice and warm. Happy New Year!

Sage - I am pretty sure they weren't starving. :) They took a ton of food which came back with them. I know cuz I emptied out the bag. lol

I just love this picture! The's the place to be!

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
