Happy Easter!

My alarm went off at 5:30 AM to "Good Morning" by Mandisa. I was able to roll out of bed, even though I really didn't want to, and was able to drag myself to the bathroom to get washed up. I went downstairs, where Dad was just taking off to start the fire at Camp, and we started packing things into the other car. We got everything loaded up and were on our way to camp around 6:07. We got everything setup, and then Ben, Matthew, and Josh showed up to help, as well as Kendra and Katija. It wasn't long before the Swiers, Birkys, and Krauses showed up, and then that was all (we probably didn't need 4 dozen donuts but we brought them to church). The service went very well, and we sang some hymns, as well as ending with The Easter Song by Keith Green. It was super awesome even if my sunrise calculations were slightly off, and so the sun didn't actually peek over the trees until 2 minutes after we had ended. Jesse had asked me a few weeks ago if he needed to do/bring anything, and I had jokingly told him to bring me a raspberry bismarck, which he did. However, seeing it was April Fool's day, I should have been more careful. I took a average sized bit, and found out that, no it wasn't filling inside, it was mayonnaise. Everyone was watching me and so I kept eating it a little because I didn't want to be rude, but then he had brought actual donuts so everything was fine and they were really good. We packed up and went home, and then headed to the church. Mom, Matthew, and I practiced a little bit when we got there, but not a whole lot, as there was breakfast downstairs. We had the service and it went pretty well, and we finally got the church congregational photo taken, but I feel kinda bad because some people were only half in it or partly hidden (our congregation seems a lot smaller from inside). After church, and a very entertaining version of Jesse trying to pretend to be me, we went to Pat's and had lunch and stuff which was fun, until we came home. Then we went over to Grandpa and Nana's, where we Facetimed Jen and Davin and ate ice cream.
