For those of you who may remember Pratt Patterson and his wife Alison, formerly Alison Baker, I just wanted to let you know that they are now the parents of twins!!! I don't have details except that it's a boy and a girl and they were about a month early but were ready to be born, so I think everything went well. Just wanted to let you all know!!

(Pratt was at camp this summer for one session...Elementary II maybe? Or Primary II? He was on Summer Staff for a while and was Head Counselor in 2000....Alison was a lifeguard for about 3 summers in the mid-90s...maybe like 95-97? Just in case you have no idea who these people are and you're curious)

[ mood | stoked ]

Hey dudes and dudettes. I'm officially a cabin counselor this summer. If you were a camper last year, I was either in a cabin or on work crew, depending on what session you were at. I'm stoked. See you all this glorious summer! Jenn

Hey everyone!!!! I just got back from camp about an hour ago from the Winter Weekend Retreat. It was so much fun!!!!! I thoroughly enjoyed it (except for the fact that nobody would shut up when all the counselors told us to be quiet!!!! I was quiet, but a bunch of other people weren't. Tricia Ireland (my counselor/youth minister) just told us this morning about the history of Ed's Cabin and who it's named after. She knew Ed really well. It was a really sad story, though...I almost cried, but I didn't. I met a lot of people there. They came from all over!!!!! I was surprised at how many people were there!!!! But it was so cold!!!!!!!! We went hiking to the cross yesterday and we ran into this really gross goo!!! There was a dead branch right under where everyone else was going, so I took it. I slipped, and if that branch wasn't there, then I would've fallen into Clear Creek. I could've probably died. So I'm very thankful for that branch. Sorry this is so long, but I just had so much to say!!!!!

Hey everyone!!! My name's Rebekah and I go to camp every summer. I wanna be a counselor when I graduate from high school. Speaking of school, I go to Pizitz Middle School in Vestavia Hills. Do any of you know a Tricia Ireland? I doubt any of you do, but tell me if you do because she's one of my best friends, and she's my youth minister at my church. Tell me if any of you know her, pretty please!!!!

I'm going on a retreat at camp on MLK weekend, which is this coming weekend. I'm really excited. One of the members in this community (bigjenn8485) was my cabin counselor over the summer. She was really cool!!! (Hey Jennifer!!! I know I have a different account now, but my other one got unfairly suspended :(. Oh well. I already put you on my friends' list. Hopefully you'll add me back just like it was before. Are you gonna be a counselor this summer? I'm sorry I'm asking you these questions).

Just wanted to announce my membership!!!!

okay, so i think i am almost definetly for sure on staff for this summer. so exciting. a few weeks ago i was hanging out at this place called double play, and who shows up but the one, the only, corey jones! so i sat down and talked to him and he said i was one of the first applications to come in. he basically told me i hired and then we proceeded to share a good time together. he even introduced himself to my friends as my "future boss." ah, exciting.

oh, and it's not a complete coincidence, corey used to go to school at montevallo where i currently attend.

who's ready for me to be their counselor? i promise i rock.

took me a few minutes, but i figured out how to leave a REAL post on this camp site. so anyway, as i was saying. i'm old. you can say hi if you want. that's about it. (hi everyone). if you're a friend of camp, you're a friend of mine. . .but if you are young (ie under the age of 15) i suggest not going to my journal. . .bad language. . .;)

Hey guys. My name's Jennifer. I was on staff last summer (2004) at camp. I was quite excited when I found out that there was a Camp McDowell LJ community! But the word definitely needs to get about it so more people will join. Who all's here?
