18: Prom 2010 | We went out to eat at the Button Factory, and it was pouring rain. We had an hour to spare after eating, so we sat in the mall parking lot and took pictures. After the dance was post prom (the hypnotist was hilarious), it was about 3:30am when we finally got back to Cami's house.

21: First we went to our cabins and met everyone that we would be living with for the next two weeks. I was in cabin #10 and my counselor was Rachel Johnson. After meeting everyone, the entire group went to the mud pit and geothermal pond. There was a huge mudfight and an epic game of Tug-o-War. Nothing like a good ol' mud pit to bring people together! | Cabin #10 | Jasmine Ardoin Jen Anderson Kaite Daughtery Whitney Fisher Rachel Johnson Emily Kach Kaitlyn Louk Amanda Mohr Keisha Sveggeen Carlee Tullar Lauren Peterman | I LOVE CAB-CAB 10!
22: Before the world was made, before You spoke it to be. You were the King of kings, yeah You were, yeah You were and now You're reigning still. Enthroned above all things. Angels and saints cry out. We join them as we sing. Glory to God, GLory to God, Glory to God forever. Glory to God, Glory to God, Glory to God, forever. Creator God you gave me breath so I could praise Your great and matchless name all my days, all my days. So let my whole life be a blazing offering. A life that shouts and sings the greatness of our King. Glory to God, glory to God, Glory to God, FOREVER. Take my life and let it be all for You and for Your glory. Take my life and let it be Yours.
23: I hear the Savior say, "Thy strength indeed is small; child of weakness, watch and pray. Find in Me thine all in all." Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe; Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow. Lord, now indeed I find Thy power and Thine alone, can change the leper's spots and melt the heart of stone. Jesus paid it all, all to Him i owe. Sin had left a crimson stain He washed it white as snow. And when before the throne I stand in Him complete, I'll lay my trophies down, all down at Jesus' feet. Jesus paid it all. All to Him I owe; Sin had left a crimson stain. He washed it white as snow. O Praise the One who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead. O Praise the One who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead!
24: He is jealous for me, loves like a hurricane, i am a tree bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy. When all of a sudden, i am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory. and i realize just how beautiful you are and how great Your affections are for me. And oh, how He loves us so, oh how He loves us, how He loves us all. Yeah, He loves us, oh how He loves us, oh how He loves us, oh how He loves us. We are His portion and He is our prize drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes. IF GRACE IS AN OCEAN WE'RE ALL SINKING. and Heaven meets earth in an unforseen kiss and my heart turns violently inside of my chest. I dont have time to maintain these grets when i think about the way...HOW HE LOVES US!

47: We went out to eat at the Century Grille in West Liberty. After we ate, we went to a park where everyone (including several cops!) stared at us as they drove by. After that was the dance-- we were one of the first ones there (talk about awkward!) After that, Chris and I made a McDonald's run to Muscatine for some delicious Chocolate Shakes. After prom was lots of fun! The Hypnotist was absolutely hilarious. By 3:00am I was dead tired and finally crashed at Sam McKiddy's house. | The Best Was Saved For Last

Muscatine has a ridiculous number of speeding cameras....ALL OVER. Wilton isn't the only town with a cool depot train station....
