Dad, Mandy Jo, Mallory, and Rebecca headed for Bulldog Canyon near Saguaro Lake on Friday night.  We spent the night there with Joe Free and his two daughters, Melinda and Amanda.  Joe had the movie Shrek playing on his DVD laptop computer, then we had a campfire and cooked some hot chocolate.  Mal fell asleep in the tent with her hot chocolate in her hand and I scared the willies out of Becca and Mandy Jo (well mostly Becca) with the story about 'The Green Monkey".. and also stumbled through the poem "The Cremation of Sam McGee" which Mandy Jo really liked.  Amanda's 12, Mallory's 11, and Becca's 7.  Big sister Rachel (16) was off on a date with a boy named Jody who asked her to the Homecoming dance at Mountain View HS. Bryce was at the same dance, asked by some gal I've never heard of before.  In the morning I took the girls and Amanda Free on a 4WD tour for a couple of hours, then came back and got the rappelling equipment belonging to Gary Smithson set up in preparation for the rest of the ward's arrival at 1pm.  The turnout was great and the girls had a great time.  We headed home after rappelling until dark.  Joe Free took all the pictures with his digital still camera.  I downloaded them from his server where more are posted in small and large format. Thanks Joe !
