Black Lake and Olympia

Last week my eighth grade class took an overnight trip to Black Lake in Olympia. We got to go to Washington State Patrol, Washington Corrections center, and the Legislative building. On the first day we drove up to the camp in Black Lake, then we went to Washington State Patrol, then we had lunch at McDonald's .... ( I get really carsick on car rides over an hour and the smell of McDonald's makes it way worse let alone eating it because I haven't eaten it in over four years...) I waited outside the entire time we were there, after that we went to Washington Corrections center (prison) and to be honest wasn't that fun. It was followed by more time at the camp when my and my friends Sophia, Grace, and Emily played mini golf. We went to mass at St. Martins University, then to the mall for dinner and shopping. We went back to camp and I felt really sick, not fun. I eventually threw up that night and was overwhelmed when people decided they wanted to stay up until 1. The next day we went to the Legislative building and to the Supreme Court. That was my favorite part and the tour seemed endless :) Pictures aren't that amazing I was having to much fun to even care.
