We went as a troop to the Nixon Library to celebrate the 100th Anniversary along with hundreds of other girl scouts.
The first one we stopped at was the Millinery (hat making) badge. The girls made a birthday hat.
This badge was very popular back in the days that girls and women wore hats.
We got to go through the little house and see some of the actual furniture, kitchen items, piano, photos and other items from when he lived there.
Everyone got to pick between hot dogs, chicken tacos or pizza. Each item also came with a snack and drink.
We got to see several of Pat Nixon's old dresses from when she lived in the White House. We all picked out the ones we liked the most.
We were all pretty tired from walking around for hours. So, we took advantage of going inside and listening to a lady sing some fun girl scout songs.
They also had some drawings going on where the girls could enter to win a free gutiar, bike or other items.
We got stopped by someone taking photos for council and they asked if the girls would pose in front of the water. We actually got stopped by several people because they said our troop looked so nice and were very well mannered. How nice.
After we got all the badges/stickers, the girls still had some energy left. They wanted to go to where the DJ was and dance. So dance they did!
They had so much fun there. They said it was the best part of the day. They also laughed a lot.
No one wanted to stay for cake. WHAT! Kids didn't want to eat cake?
Well, truth be told, we all stopped and the girls were able to get drinks and a treat earlier.
Since we did everything and the girls finally got tired of dancing, we decided it was time to go. Everyone was tired and ready to go.
We all said our good byes and headed home.
HAPPY 100th BIRTHDAY GIRL SCOUTS!
