Part of the joy of being on the activities council is thinking of activities that you think the ward will not only show up to, but enjoy. Since it is my eternal calling and I have been on activities in this ward for about 3 years and then in my ward before this one I was the activities chair for a year, I have some ideas and I usually have a pretty good idea of what people will and will not like. The activity we did tonight was one that I did as activities chair in my last ward and turned out pretty well so I thought I would give it a shot in this ward and it turned out great. Everyone that came had an awesome time. (I actually got the idea from when I was in the El Camino Ward back in the day). Anyway... the activity was, everyone got into groups and made a part of the mini golf course using scraps. It is fun because it forces people to be creative and work together and everyone ends up laughing and having a good time to make sure you really can get the ball in the hole. At the end... you get to play the course. Pretty awesome huh? Sadly nobody joined Brent and I. So we were by ourselves, but I have to say, ours was one of the best. Lets be honest... it is because of Brent. I give a small idea and then he comes up with all of these amazing and creative ways to do it and makes it happen, and to perfection. And he gets so excited putting things together. It is cute to watch. Here is how it turned out. This first picture is the back of our course where the hole is. We marked ours as Par: 3. I don't think anyone else put pars on their.
P.S. The other one that was super awesome was my roommate Ashlee's group! Looks at the artistic skills that went into that Hollywood course!
