Weekend - Cougar style

Half of our crew headed to Provo, UT and celebrated Memorial Day weekend cougar-style. We had heard about the BYU Fathers & Sons basketball camp being great - so Bart and our oldest two set out to decide for themselves. ZERO disappointments! They spent 4 days sleeping in the dorms, eating in the Cannon Center, meeting new friends from all over the country and playing every kind of sport imaginable. They have decided that not only is this camp worth two thumbs up, but that it will become a Dickson family tradition every year. (In 7 years when Luke is old enough to join in...that works out to be a good deal for mom. A weekend all to herself! Of course I'm supporting this new tradition.)

An early morning in the cafeteria fueling up for a day of playing

Tyler gets some one-on-one time with Jimmer Fredette

When mom's away...the boys will play! A late night trip to DQ for treats

BYU does everything top notch - so the boys enjoyed a top notch Sabbath with a special sacrament meeting with L. Tom Perry, walk around Temple Square and BBQ lunch at This Is The Place State Park

Oh my gosh, that camp sounds fab! I'll have to remember that for when Justin is old enough. How old do they have to be? 8?
