How can I argue?

How Zekey kept himself busy while Jesse and I were working
There were a few days that we were able to break away from the scouts and have a nice afternoon of fun. On this particular day we went down to the swimming area and had fun in the water. I continued to learn how to swim, Jesse had fun out on a sailboat, Rosalee enjoyed splashing around, and Zeke had a nice nap in someone's camper.
Every Monday and Friday we would hold camp wide fires and Rosalee LOVED singing along with all the crazy, silly songs. There is one song that she randomly sings all the time. One day she woke up and said part of the song as she popped out of bed.
One specific campfire (pictured above) involved a pioneer/mountain man, a native chief, and a group of pirates. Weird, yes. Enjoyed by scouts, YES.
One weekend we came home from church to see Hayden sitting on the chair. I was very confused at why he was at the house, especially without Jenny. Then I walked into the kitchen and saw chocolate milk and cinnamon rolls and understand EXACTLY why he was there! The best part is while he was there I received a text message from Jenny telling that she has gone to look at rings and she hopes to marry Hayden but she wasn't sure when he was going to propose. I almost died with laughter, but I kept quiet about it.
Jenny and Hayden were up in Island Park with his family for a few days and I convinced them to stop by and visit before returning to Utah. When they came I took them to the COPE course and had them try it out. Hayden beat himself up on the giant's ladder but he seemed to have fun. Jenny didn't get to do much because a nasty storm came in.
One of my new passions is shooting skeet with a shotgun. I went up to the firing range and was scared to death about it. I used a normal shotgun and about fell on my butt! I had a nasty bruise for 5+ days on my upper arm and it hurt like crazy. Then I convinced the camp director that more scouts could work on the shotgun merit badge if we had a youth size shotgun and he went for it.
I LOVE THAT GUN!
They named it "Little Rosie" after Rosalee because they say, "It looks tiny and cute but then out of nowhere it'll kick you like a mule!" I'm still not very good but at least now I have a gun to use that actually fits my freakish childlike arms.
