Lets set the scene a little so you know what is going on:
As you may or may not know as a stake Young Womens activity we had a boot camp! It was awesome fun and we really loved it!! As we had been taking photos with the YW leaders because we totally drenched them in the water fight we were the last to leave the "camp site"... As Sacha was taking down a little boot camp sign from the gate we overtook them =) When we got to the end of Porters Road i saw a big boot camp sign sticking in the gravel.. I just randomly said "Hey we should SO steal their sign!" The next thing i know Jayne has slammed on the brakes and said "GO!!" So Tayla and i leap out of the car and race to the sign and pull it out.. We were tripping over and in all the excitement i got a LOT of the gravel stuff in my shoes! Anyway, we could hear their (the YW leaders) car approaching so we were scrambling to fit the sign in the boot!!! We got it in and pulled away just as they were driving up.. I wish i could have seen the look on their faces when they saw it was missing!!!!
I decided to stir things up a bit by sending them all a text via Lisa saying "Is the stake yw presidency misssing something???" Almost immediately i recieved a reply along the lines of "Yes!! We want our sign back, we need it" .. Yes i can hear you ask, for what!!?? I thought the same thing and decided to make it interesting.. While i was plotting my brilliant plan i recieved ANOTHER text this time saying "Sacha says its $80 or the sign back" ..
I thought to myself "hmm this sign must be fairly valuable and important to them!!" So instead of giving it back i came up with a better idea!!! But first i offered them Ransom.. Which, mind you, was only a block of chocolate to myself and Tayla, and a LOT of sucking up and being nice to the both of us, but alas they didn't want to pay that!!! (I think this has something to do with wanting to pay us back for drenching them in the water fight and getting them despite them knowing when it was, and they cant do this if they are being nice to us!!)
The ransom was refused!!! SO, i told them that the boot camp sign will be appearing regularly but not within their clutches, and to keep an eye on my blog and Facebook for ... "The adventures of the travelling boot camp sign!"
The sign has been fairly busy over the last week! He has had a few adventures.. He visited a few places, and the ones that were tricky to figure out where he was, people had to guess. There is always a photo to accompany his adventure!!! The adventures are totally random and where he ends up pretty much depends on my moods! =)
The first adventure was on the way to school on Monday morning.. I sometimes drive the old highway when i am leaving a bit later as it is the time people are off to work and too many cars get piled up behind me! So we are driving along looking for something cool to take a picture of with the sign.. And i saw this church off down a random little road, i have seen it many times and always wanted to go up close. This was the perfect opportunity!! I HAD to stop there as i could hear Booty in the back yelling out, "i want to stop here, i want to stop here!!" So off we went and took our first photo!! Check him out working it for the camera- HOT stuff!!!! ;)
The second adventure was not too long after the first, on Tuesday!!! We had to go to the cemetary for Young Womens and do a quiz thingy.. Booty wanted to come along too! We all piled into the cars, but poor old Booty had to squash in the boot as too many Young Women decided to jump in the awesome red car!!! He wanted a photo straight away and wasn't impressed with my silly antics of trying to set up a good picture!!! He was even less impressed with my antics of rolling around on the grass trying to get a good one of me not looking too silly!! We got there in the end though and ended up with a VERY stunning photo of the two of us!!! =D Booty then wanted to wait in the car because he got very cold, and was very embarrassed that i was dancing, yes that's right, DANCING with him across the gravel to the car, because he realised there was a woman sitting in her little purple car watching it all =D
