Let's get Wet!

I was given a stake assignment for our Stake youth conference. I love the youth and gladly accepted. I was put on the Music and Entertainment committee. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love to play. When I got to my first committee meeting I was excited to see my friend Amy Pratt there. She also love to have fun! We were put in charge of the water olympics. There were a lot of things that the youth wanted to do. We were able to combine a lot of things and came up with 5 events.
1. The shaving cream shoot off.
2. The back to back water balloon carry.
3. The sponge toss
4. The slip and slide.
5. The water balloon grab obstacle course.

For a tie breaker we had a tug of war over a pool. I knew that the slip and slide would be a big hit, but it seems that they were all enjoyed by the youth. There was a massive shaving cream fight in the end. I think that the youth had fun. Our kids had fun trying things out. I got to test out the slip and slide. Let me just say, WWHHHEEEE!!! I am hoping to get some pictures of the events and post them. We had a lot of fun doing this and seeing our ideas come to fruition was gratifying. It was also wonderful to get to interact with the youth of our stake. Amy and I think that we should have a neighborhood slip and slide.
