Pictures and Girls Camp stories

Last night I realized I hadn't put the EFY pictures on here yet, so I will today. I had an amazing b-day. My mom planned a surprise party and we had it the day before my b-day. I was totally surprised and had a great time. I got lots of purses some books and lots of money to buy books. I even got a $25 gift certificate to a book store in the area. I can't wait to use it!!!!
I had lots of fun at girls camp and really enjoyed having my mom there. Sadly, I took the camera but not the memory card so I have no pictures. I am hoping to get some from my friends though. This year was my 4th year of girls camp so I went on the High Adventure. That was defiantly an adventure, if not a completely good one. On the first day, a girl got heat stroke (or heat exhaustion, I don't remember which) so we stopped for 4 hours. The leaders were debating whether to take her out or to keep going. We also had dinner during this time. Then when we were hiking we were in three groups. The faster girls, the middle group, and the girl that had been sick and the leaders. We ended up hiking through the forest in the dark in small groups until about 11 that night. Then we all met up and finished the hike. We didn't set up camp untill about 12:30 that night. To keep the story somewhat short that same girl got stung by a bee and she's deathly alergic we had to stop to give her an epi-pen. The hike was really steep so we took along time hiking and didn't get home untill midnight when we planned on being home by lunch. So yeah, it was a hike to be remembered. Here is a pict. of all the girls in my company at EFY. The next one is the guys. There are 12 girls 8 guys. The picture of the girl with the water bottle is of a girl drinking a live goldfish. I'm not quite sure why, but it was really funny and cool to watch!!! The guy with the cups was a counsler and after the banquet he took a bunch of cups and made a tower. It was really cool looking. I'm planning on adding more pictures on a regular basis. There's just too many to do all at once.

  1. WOW that really sounded like an adventurous, disasterous hike. It sounds like your leaders have never hiked it before. Anyway, glad to hear you got down the mountain and are well enough to post about it. Love the pictures of EFY. Looks like so much fun!

  2. I ate a live goldfish before and it was really gross. I don't recommend trying it. Looks like you had a fun time mostly though.
