We spent our New Year's Eve with the church. I hung out with the 4th/5th graders taking video and pictures of all the fun stuff they got to do. Jay hung out with the middle school group.
Then the next day (Friday, Jan. 2nd) Samantha and Jay got up early to go with the youth group for a weekend at Hoodoo. They stayed at Big Lake Youth Camp. The roads to Hoodoo were bad so it took 6 hours to get there.
I really wish Jay would of had a camera to take pictures because it sounded like they did a bunch of cool stuff in the snow (inner-tubing). When they arrived at Hoodoo the only way to get to camp was riding behind Snocat on innertubes. It takes about 45 minutes to get pulled into camp.
Jay and Sam arrived home Sunday evening. They are looking forward to doing it again next year. Also next year Andrew will be able to join them because he'll be in the middle school group.
Below is a picture of Samantha in the youth room before they loaded the buses to head over to Hoodoo.
This picture shows the piles of stuff (sleeping bags and clothes wrapped in plastic so it doesn't get wet) to be loaded onto the buses.
This picture was taken after Jay and Sam arrived back Sunday night.
Here is Andrew helping out by carrying the "bags" to the van.
