Another activity we planned were skits in a bag. The girls chose their own groups and a bag full of random items. They had thirty minutes to plan and then put on a show for everyone. I learned to never underestimate their talent. They were hilarious! I about fell out of my chair during a "bachelorette rose ceremony". The sunsets were incredible! There is something so magical about being surrounded by nothing but nature and really taking the time to recognize the beauty that God created around us. For me it was a trip that I really needed to renew my faith and trust in the Lord.
On the last day, we drove the extra 15 miles to the reservoir. Probably my favorite part about that day was the Hogwarts every flavor jelly bean game the girls decided to play. I guarantee that game was made for the spectators entertainment! I wasn't willing to take a 50/50 chance and land on black: skunk or black licorice or yellow: lemon or moldy cheese or brown: dog food or rootbeer float or green: throw up or watermelon. GAG.ME.NOW! Their faces where priceless. It took about 3 chews before they were either grinning or... NOT grinning if you know what I mean. haha
I learned that I can cook several days worth of meals for 30 people and that I definitely don't want to go from no children to 18 teenagers at one time ha but I did have some seriously fun dance parties with those girls! The months of planning were worth it and fun was had by all!
