Going, Going, Stopping

Some of us are stoppers and some of us are drivers and the stoppers are winning at the moment.

Saying goodbye to Amaree in Texarkana. She’s moving, wah-wah!

Lunch stop outside of Mt. Pleasant.

Krista tried to top my bra event by leaving the trailer open and entering the freeway. Even with all of our honking and texting it still took us a couple of minutes to stop her. Thank goodness Patricia got them on the phone and our stuff didn’t get strewn all over I-35!

Then on to South Dallas for gasoline at 7-Eleven, snacks and drinks too, of course.

And now, we’re sitting in dead stop traffic on 35 about ten miles from where we filled up the cars. Must be an accident because we’ve seen the police going by.

There’s a movie going in every car so we’re in good shape at the moment, no worries, feeling fine.

Grand Finale! Magic Springs and Crystal Falls

Today was our last full day in Hot Springs and the one thing on our agenda was Magic Springs and Crystal Falls, the local amusement and water park.

The girls were beyond excited and still full of energy, despite a very long and fun week of activities. Some girls were ‘riders’ and others were not so we divided accordingly and hit the park!

One group enjoyed a magic show and got autographs and a photo with the magician afterwards.

Standing on the bridge for the Plummet Summit was a big hit and Denise got this great before and after shot of her girls.

A mid-afternoon storm rolled through with some thunder and lighting so we took a lunch break and shopped in the stores. Then it was over and we visited the water park.

At seven, that part of the park closed so everyone changed back Into their clothes and headed back to the ride side. Guess who got to take lots of stuff back to the truck?

We closed down the park at eight with lots of last minute riding and everyone’s favorite, funnel cakes! Lots of powdery mouths when that was finished.

Back at the Radford House we had ‘potluck’ dinner and boy was that fun. This table chose Cheetos, cereal and brownies. Aren’t we the best?

Karen and Krista made this cute gift that we all signed to leave as a token of our visit to the Radford House.

Now I’m sitting here on my air mattress amongst the snores and sighs of sleeping girls and leaders. One last blog before we hit the road tomorrow morning. What an amazing week this has been.

I must also add that Karen didn’t want me to have to be the only one who gave the girls a life lesson this week…she had to stay home today because of dehydration (one too many Cokes?) but is feeling much better now and has drunk plenty of water all day long.

Time for me to go to sleep so I’ll be able to drive my truckload home tomorrow, goodnight.

Like I said on FB, this place had the best music!

Pass on the Gift–Heifer Village

Heifer International began in the 1940’s, with one man’s vision as he helped feed children during the Spanish Civil War.

From here it has grown into an international effort to feed, educate and fulfill the lives of people around the world.

It’s a cool thing! Heifer.org

The girls learned the seven, “Ms” which Heifer strives to provide through their animals. They are acting them out in this picture. From left to right they are:
Motivation, Manure, Muscle, Materials, Meat, Money and Milk.

Then we split into groups and all toured the village and the office building which is certified LEED. Amazing place.

Lunch came next and it was very tasty. Our compliments to the Heifer Chef!

Now it’s time for serious business, what to ‘buy’ for our GS donation. Much deliberation!

And the winner is…

A pig!

‘Oink.’

Sonic Stop!!

The diamond fun lasted so long we scrapped plans to eat at the GS House tonight. Sonic time baby! Hungry girls, time to eat and have a pleasant ride home.
