Over the weekend Grant and his Boy Scout friends took and trip to Worth Ranch to go on our first overnight camping trip! Grant, Bobby, Charlie, and Andrew among others had a great time hiking, exploring, roasting marshmallows and generally running a muck! We had a great time and look forward to the next camping trip!

Kim and Paul went with since neither are old enough to drive 🙂 While not a large rink it was plenty big enough to skate and the hot chocolate was delicious.
