Colton and Landon just got home from the Mountain Man Rendezvous! It's a two day camp full of activities for these boys. Archery, throwing logs, "bull riding" and obstacle courses are a few of the things they did! This year's event was near Flagstaff, which means cold! Well, at least cold for us Arizonians! I would say sleeping in a tent in a sleeping bag when it's 20 degrees is cold.
It's been a tradition in our ward for the boys to make a capote, among other things, to wear and trade at Mountain Man. This year our boys made little leather pouches and knives. They didn't have time to make their capotes. So 2 days before they were to leave, some of us (insane) mothers decided they couldn't go without them and that we'd make them. I spent almost 12 hours one day finding fabric, figuring out the pattern, cutting, sewing, cursing, talking to Grammy etc. However, at the end of the day, we got 'er done. And they were an awesome mess! Luckily we were making them for 15 year old boys, who frankly did care what the sewing was like. They thought they were awesome!
