Mystery Trip (Girl Scouts)

Yesterday was Samantha's troops 3rd mystery trip. Every summer we do a Mystery Trip. First one was to the PDX zoo and Chuck-E-Cheeses. The second one was to the coast and we stayed overnight in a hotel on the beach. The third was all about pampering the girls and letting them feel grown up.

Samantha and I dressed up for the "tea party."

We had fun surprising the girls all through out the day. They had no idea what was coming next. When it was time to leave from the Manicure/Pedicure we loaded them into the van and backed up 3 feet and then pulled forward. Told the girls we were here (we were parked right infront of Chapalas when we went to get our nails done). Us (the adults) laughed so hard but I don't think the girls thought we were very funny.

We arrived back to the church after lunch we told the girls the day was done and that their parents would be returning to pick them up. We said we would wait inside for the parents. Inside the church it was set up for a wedding that was happening that afternoon. So, when the girls got into the classroom to "wait" for their mom's to pick them up they were shocked to see their dresses hung up. They started saying, "Hey, that is my dress how did it get in here?" The Mom's did a great job keeping the dresses hidden from the girls (they had no idea their mom's brought their dresses). That is when we realized that there was no Samantha in the group. She was sitting out in van reading because she really believed me that the parents were coming to get the girls. So, we went searching for her. After we got all the girls in the classroom to change clothes they kept asking what they were going to do in these fancy dresses. So, I explained how they were going to be flower girls in the wedding that was happening this afternoon. I know, I know- shame on me! 2 girls (one being mine) were so excited and really wanted to be a flower girl in the wedding. It wasn't until we were at the Hult Center that I had to explain that they really weren't going to be in the wedding. I thought they would figure that out when we took all of our stuff from the church. So, next year I need to figure out how to work it in that the girls can be in a wedding for their Mystery Trip. Hee hee!

Next year Maddie's troop will get to do a Mystery trip also. We wait until they are going into 4th grade to do the Mystery Trip.
