This last Friday night Andy and Samantha went to Mt St Helens with the 12-17 year olds and their leaders from church. They camped overnight and then went hiking through Ape Caves the next day. This is something our ward does every year in October and Samantha looks forward to it from one year to the next. Last year, however, it was canceled due to "activity" with Mt. St. Helens. Sam was not happy about the cancelation, to say the least! I had wanted to go too, but my sinuses have been acting up so I thought it best to stay home and take care of that insteaad of getting sick again. (DARN!) When going through Ape Caves, you have to have a flashlight, water and a helmet/hard hat. (Actually, the helmet is a requirement of the ward leaders. They don't want to take anyone back home with a concusion. Hmmm....I wonder why??) Anyway, both Andy and Sam had a great time!
