Girls Camp 2010 {day 1}

Hey everyone, I'm back! First off... when I got back from camping, I came on to blogger to find that I had 3 new followers! I know that's not very much at all to some of you, but for me that's kind of a lot. Haha. Thank you!! :D

Before I start, just to let you know... my blog, is pretty much my journal. It's a place where I can write down important things that have happened in my life lately. I just chose to share it with people via internet. I'm just sayin! :) haha

Anyways, I'm going to start off by writing about my first day off camp. And then, I will write about each other day in a separate post.

On Tuesday morning, about 3:30 am, is when it all began. I woke up, got dressed, and met at my church with the rest of the girls in my young women's group around 4:00 am. We had already brought our luggage to the church the night before, so we would be ready to go... but by the time everyone got there and we got situated in cars, it was about 4:45 am.

The drive up there was about 5 and 1/2 hours long! Being so early in the morning, we all decided to try to fall asleep in the car to get some rest. That was a FAILURE. Haha. None of us could sleep, so instead we blasted some music. :) Here are a few pictures of the car ride up:

When we finally arrived, we unloaded all our luggage from the cars. Then they sent us to a table where they told us which cabin we were going to be in for the week. That was scary. I really wanted to be with all my friends, but it turned out that I only got to be with one of my close friends. All of my other friends got to be in the same cabin together... not cool. Oh well.
After that, we waited for the rest of the people to get to camp, and we all met up at the amphitheater so they could tell us some rules of the camp and what will be going on for the rest of the week. (<-- Run-on sentence haha!) Throughout the day we played a lot of "Get-to-know you" games. We also made really cute dog tags by cutting out scrapbooking paper and mod podging (clear glue) the paper onto the dog tags. They turned out really cute! At the end of the day we met at the amphitheater again for a devotional. And then back to our cabins for bed! Lights were supposed to be out by 11:00 pm but no one really obeyed that rule. ;)

Here are a few pics of Day 1:

It was really pretty up there... so many trees and animals. The weather that day was rainy and cold. We were all bundled up in coats and gloves. I was freezing, but at the same time... I loved it! :)

Coming up next: Day 2 of girls camp!
