West Central Teen Lock In 2012

Last weekend we went to the West Central District Teen Lock In. Wilkes County took 10 youth on the trip!  Let me tell you, it was COLD. Really cold. In the rush that we were, we forgot our sweatshirts... but thanks to Addison we didn't freeze!
One thing that Wilkes County is good for is our car rides! Somehow they always end up being memorable and fun, totally goofy and full of laughter. We went to FireHouse Subs to eat dinner and what we found was jaw dropping. They had a soda machine with 120 different flavors! I suggest that everyone go there and try it... Soon! The first thing we did when we got there was help set up. Then there were hugs and lots of talking, and Some people who didn't wanna give a hug but ended up being hugged. :P It was great getting to see old friends again and meeting new ones. 4-H is about building yourself up so we had some great workshops prepared. I chose drama and working on my cumulative record. I got to know Ruth a bit better and she was a huge help! The drama class was a great opportunity to learn about some people's personalities. I had to act like I was separating two guys from fighting. It looked pretty funny I have to admit.  After the workshops it was off to bowling at Bo's!! Sooo much fun! A ton happened there. My bowling score was terrible but that's because I had a great team playing against me. It was me, Anna, Natasha, Addison, and Angel. Hopefully I did better at Laser Tag. The hours at Bo's were awesome and I loved it. Between Natasha's and my own escapades the night kept on rolling with jokes and laughter!  Afterwards we went back to the 4-H office of Caldwell county and that's when the best parts of the night started. Ninja was started in small circles everywhere, then in a really big circle. Anna and Guy made it down to the final two.... again. Anyone up for a game of Mafia? The host for our game was non other than Wyatt. That game was somethin else, and yes, I did get killed off. I wonder who did it. =P
I wanna say a special congratulations to Guy Perkins, he pulled a great first all nighter! Joseph, we've got a few more years to work on you yet, so don't think that you won't have one either. I loved when we were playing the mind games and the ones that you had to figure out the secret. Dallas and Kristen were teaching us all, that had to be funny. Ha ha ha thanks Ethan and Guy who helped me to get the tricks, I know I'm horrible at things like that but yall were the best! Addison was too funny staying up for us. And Natasha it was hilarious to see you trying your best with my hair that really ended up looking like a tornado went through it anyways! Now, now, let's not forget to mention planning the wedding. I'm lookin forward to seeing all yall there.
That night was so amazing and I loved all the awesome people who were apart of it! It's astounding how many memories a person can make within 24 hours. But you know what, non of those memories mean anything without the people to share them with. Inside jokes aren't silly and special without the ones who share it with you, and I am thanking God every moment for all the feelings he gives to us. It's wonderful to know that I've made new friends and made old friendships even stronger!
Addison trying out the horse shoe ring thing on the rid up there, yeah I think everyone could do that except me. I even tried to be calm and nice with it!
