Scavenger Hunt

Our youth group had it annual Scavenger Hunt Saturday... I got to team up with some of the girls that I went to see Twilight with - so it was another night that I knew was going to be fun!! We got our clues & the point was to figure them out & take pictures with digital cameras at each location with each clue being different point levels.....

This one - how many people can you fit on a buffalo... yes there is a buffalo underneath there!!!


Another clue was to find Sponge Bob in a Hardware store.... we walked in & the guy who worked there was SOOO THRILLED (being sarcastic here) when we asked him if Sponge Bob was around

We also had to do a pyramid in front of a Mexican restaurant. (We actually got the clue wrong & was in front of the wrong place- but it was fun anyways) - one of the girls is a cheerleader (the one on top) so she knew just what to do!

Had to put on all kinds of clothes in Wal-Mart...(And yes - we were good girls & put everything back!)



And had to find Princess movies with a tiara - & as you can see - the one who was named to have the tiara is so ANTI-Princess - we loved having her hold it!

Had to get a picture with an associate with a Santa hat - we couldnt find Santa Hats so we did the next best thing - putting Santa's on our heads!!! I thought it was pretty clever if I do say so myself!

Along the way - we had so much fun - we went & started taking pictures at the most random places & doing the most random things.... we had the most amazing time - laughing & screaming - you can imagine with a car load of girls.

Then we had an idea - lets go get our picture with Santa Claus. Well, the scavenger hunt was only 2 hours long & we had to be back at our home base at 5:05....we thought, lets go for - it'll just make us about 10 minutes late....we get there - Santa is on dinner break.... AAHHH MAN!! So I made the leader, executive decision to wait it out - we were going to be late anyways & we were there anyways - so we hung out at the mall for about 30 minutes - eating cookies, looking at Twilight stuff & just having fun hanging out - so here's our picture of us with Santa


Needless to say - we ended up being an HOUR late getting back - oops! So all the points we got for the Scavenger Hunt - they were all deducted (loose 5 points for every minute we're late)...but all the girls didn't care - they wouldn't trade the night of fun for anything.


The best part - we all went & got some coffee & french-vanilla flavored yumminess & went to Crossroads & talked for hours! We laughed our butts off....Erica can tell the funniest stories of anyone I know!!!


What a fun night- any chance these girls can get to grow in their friendships with each other & to allow me to be a part of their lives - there is not a word that even describes the blessing they all are in my life!

(All girls from our small group!! Each one special in their own way!!!)

As we are nearing Thanksgiving - I am truly Grateful for each one of these girls & each one of the kids in our youth group that are in my life!
