Thomas S. Monson Camp

On our first day in Ontario we headed out to a camp dedication at the newly built Thomas S. Monson camp, to be dedicated by President Monson himself! Unfortunately the boys were so excited to see their cousins that they woke them up in the middle of the night, and none of them went back to sleep. This is what I found at 7:00 in the morning. This is not where I put him. I guess they visited the backyard, watched Ponyo, and played for hours. They slept all the way to the camp though!

When we got there it was soaked from the rain. It stopped long enough for us to set up camp and then it started back up... and never quit.
This is at the dedication. We didn't have an umbrella, but everyone else did. The people who were in front of us had one, and theirs dripped down on us the whole time. We were soaked and freezing, but it was so worth it to be so close to the Prophet and to hear his words and to feel his love for Ontario and Canada.
Mo and Tanner. Mo is sound asleep.
Right before President Monson got up to speak the rain stopped and the umbrellas went down. That's all I was praying for! What a blessing. What a miracle! Turns out that President Monson said a prayer that it wouldn't rain on our show! Gotta love that! Look how close we were! He even wiggled his ears!
We took our boys, Rudy, Tanner and their friend Curtis on a hike up to where they will be planting a garden on a huge hill top. There is even an "iron rod" on the way up. So beautiful.

I am so glad that we had this incredible opportunity, I will forever remember this day and the feelings I had. The miracles that took place. I think the boys will too.
