The great thing about only moving a half hour away from your old ward is that you can still go to the super fun events. The Weston 1st Ward was having a Relief Society retreat up at Camp Zion in NH. Since my house happened to be right on the way, my friend Brenna picked me up and I got to spend some great time with old friends. The food was delicious as always, and the company was wonderful. It was freezing at the camp. Luckily our cabin had a pellet stove that kept us warm at night, but the mess hall was still pretty cold despite the fire. In the time we didn't spend eating we enjoyed a few other fun activities...

|Friends keeping warm by the fire|
Julie gave us a wonderful lesson about journaling. She was one of two published authors at the retreat. Cool, huh.
|Keeping warm and learning a little line dancing|
|Puzzle completed. This was taken the next morning. None of us were fit to be photographed at 2am when we finished.|
|Crazy pic. I love the girls camp YW thing in the background. It makes me laugh. Because this is such a girls camp photo anyway. (with a few years added obviously.)|
|Ditto to the above comment. Totally reminds me of Mount Misery. Maybe not everyone had girls camp in November. But we did. :)|
|Anne is seriously one of my favorite people in the world. She was the only one brave enough to do the polar bear swim. It was soooooo cold. It got down below freezing that night. Crazy!|
It was fun to get away for a night and thanks to Scott for keeping things under control here. :)
