Let's go back to Family Camp 1980

Lizzy Lowe, Brock (my oldest son), and Matt Ward

These 3 amigos were inseparable that Family Camp week of 1980.
Before we were even awake,
Lizzy and Matt would be at our cabin door waiting for Brock. 

I don't think Brock has seen Lizzy since that week.
But tonight I found out she is now Elizabeth Anderson 
and has been crowned Mrs.Utah !

Just a little thought as Family Camp 2012 officially begins tomorrow morning. 

Also, Matt Ward (above pictured with Brock) was in a very serious roll over 
car accident 9 days ago, along with his wife and 3 children.  

Here's a quote from Matt's wife Aimee for those who haven't seen it on Facebook:
"I just want to take a moment and thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. It has been felt every step of the way. My family was in a serious car accident in Reno, NV last Friday. Thankfully, we all made it ok. My eldest, Emma, did break a vertebrae in 2 places, but (thankfully) did not require surgery. She is in a brace and doing very well. I suffered a compound fracture in my right arm, a fracture in my right hip, & 4 fractures in my neck. I had to have surgery on all of these things, and I have felt your prayers and support carry me. We have blessed without measure! We have left the wonderful hospital in Reno that has been carrying for me and we are transporting me to a Rehab hospital in Fresno! I will be able to be close to the ones I love as I get stronger. I am so grateful for my Savior. He has truly carried me. Thank you all for helping to hold me up, too. "

Great post! I'm amazed with the pictures you come up with. We and our kids all have great memories of Family Camp. Wish we were closer so I could play Rook with my brothers and Chickee could get her annual exposure to the inside of a kitchen.

She heard you were looking for a cook next year and thought she might offer her services. I'm still dumbstruck at the thought of it!

Richard ~What I think is even odder than having this picture, is that I should be talking to a relative of Lizzy's tonight at an Open House, and when I just happened to ask how Lizzy was doing all these 32 years later, she tells me she is Mrs. Utah. And it just so happens Family Camp starts tomorrow...where are only Lizzy memory started.

I'm also wondering if Aimee might be at the same rehab Dad will be going to later on this week.

My Dad is coming along. Still in hospital of course. Saturday night not so good. Better Sunday. Haven't seen him today yet. Thanks for asking Darlene.

What a cute picture at the top. Brock was so cute. I am glad Liz learned how to smile. LOL
She became a beautiful woman. Sorry about Matt and his family. All the best to them.

Boy, have I been out of touch. I didn't even know about the accident. So glad they are healing well.

Love family camp!
