Troop 2155 Scrapbook

Here are the pages from the scrapbook that I made the girls...Hope you enjoy :)

End of The Year BBQ

Yesterday we celebrated the last meeting of our 2008-2009 Girl Scout year. We had a BBQ at the park and got some cool end of the year awards. The girls all had tons of fun!

We started our meeting as usual, with a flag ceremony, reciting the girl scout promise and law....

and singing and dancing to some silly songs!

Then it was time to hand out the awards and the scrapbooks I made the girls..........

Congratulations Girls!

Mara did a great job with the hot dogs!
Now it is on to our summer activities! Day Camp is coming up and we are so excited! Looking forward to next year as week begin working on the new Journeys Program.

Every Sunday that we can swing it, we get together with the other Reid's to play WOW...or as we like to refer to it as WOW Sunday :) This happened to be a Saturday as we were celebrating Kathy's birthday!
Most of the time it is pretty late when we end. Willow fell asleep and while she was sleeping got a snuggler to join her :) Kaya hopped up on the couch and got as close as she could to Willow. Now this is saying something about her. She does not like to snuggle with anyone. She also came in closer when David tried to lift her and then her paw up over Willow as he was lifting her up :) She loves Willow.
I just thought this picture was so sweet!


Sunday was Joshua's 16th birthday! The festivities started on Friday night and began with opening the gifts :)

Swords, D and D books and figures, cash, Halo wars and wow for a year...what more could you ask for?? hee hee

Josh and I are also heading to BlizzCon in August with Kathy and Justin, that was a BIG part of his gift!

I left David with the brood while Kathy and I went to Johnny Carinos for Bellini's and pasta and then to see the movie 17 Again. Totally hilarious by the way!

I gave each of the boys a"Mana Potion" :) (Pretty much pure caffeine ) They planned to not sleep the entire weekend LOL

WOW, Warcraft 3, Age of Conan....and then Halo Wars on the x-box :)

On Saturday they spent the afternoon at laser tag........ (after no sleep)

Birthday cake and milkshakes...I have no idea how they can eat the two together! Still no sleep.(except Justin laid down for about an hour)

Needless to say, by 10 pm Josh was out and talking in his sleep about shorts being too short and airplane surgery LOL Justin was out by midnight and Cody made it to 4 am Sunday morning!!
On Sunday Josh was a new guy :) He SO needed sleep! I was glad he slept since Sunday was his actual birthday and he had plans to do fun stuff.

Sword fighting...or as I like to call it "having the crap beat out of you with a wooden stick"

After the sword fighting Kathy and Justin joined us for Star Trek. Another awesome movie! It was so fun!
Then it was home for some WOW time...

For his birthday dinner Josh chose Chili's. It was probably the most least expensive event of the weekend :) They were so late with everything and messed up our order that they did not charge of or any drinks, appetizers or desserts :) Despite the screw ups we had a great time!
I think he had a great weekend! We love you Josh :)
