Triple Diamond Award!!

The "Triple Diamond Award" is for students that have been consistently doing well in their program for the previous month. This month's theme was "weekend fun". The objective for the benefit was to show the students how they can have fun on a weekend without drugs,alcohol, or doing anything illegal! We also gave them a budget so they had to plan for the upcoming things to do and places to eat! Our first stop was for lunch and everyone decided on burgers so we stopped at the local "Iceberg", they have burgers and shakes that will knock your socks off!
Yes they have been around a long time!
Here is one of the students carefully sculpting his ice cream cone!
Next stop was hiking on the "DIXIE" hill! The boys loved it! Here is Micah hanging on for dear life under one of the cool over hanging rocks!(he was only 2 feet off the ground)
Here is Tommy and Micah racing up the face off the giant rocks!

 Tommy managed to squeeze himself into this little hole in the rock!
This was one of the beautiful look out spots during the hike!
Here they are resting under one of the trees that was growing right out of the rocks!
This is the beginning of a huge crack in the rocks that was about 50 yards long and 20 feet deep!
Micah squeezed his way through the awesome crack in the rocks!
Next stop was a coin shop to broaden the students minds of what is "cool".
Tommy and Micah loved all the cool things that the shop had and were surprised that they had sooooo much of it.
They had some really cool old coins for really cheap!
This is a gold bar that they found at the bottom of the ocean after a ship that was transporting gold and had sunk!
Then it was on to dinner at the "world famous" Troy's BBQ. ( Ok so it isn't world famous but tastes like it should be!)

They had this really cool little bench inside as part of the waiting room.
Inside the BBQ place they let you "make your mark" on the walls of the entire resturant! It was really cool and all the boys made sure they left their mark!
Then it was on to dessert! Crave is a favorite of the locals!
Not real sure how guilt free it really is but it sure tastes amazing!
There are soooo many toppings you can pile on the 12 different flavors of frozen yogurt!
It was nice to kick back and relax and have cold dessert after being out in the heat all day!!
