Weekend With The Boys

Listening To: Invisible by Ashlee Simpson
Feelin': Tired

On Friday I went over to my grandma's and as soon as I got there we went swimming at my Aunt's. Rogan and Austin were there so we played together and my Aunt Janet who had the boys, asked if I wanted to spend the night with them. Of course, I said yes. So she picked me up at my Gandma's and we went back to my house to pick up some clothes. From my house we went back to her's and then we went blueberry picking. Rogan loved it and didn't want to stop, it was funny:) We went back to her house and we went for a four-wheeler ride and took some blueberries to my Grandparents. We played for a while and ate dinner. When we went to bed, we slept out in their camping trailer, just Rogan, Austin and I. I read them some stories and ten we went to bed. The next day we had blueberry pancakes for breakfast, yum! WE played for a while again and then headed into town to the fairgrounds. They had some miniature horse shows going on and my Aunt helped with one of the horse's costume so that as what we came to see. Well, when we got there they were still a long way from the costume horses. We hung out for a while and watched the show and then left for Little Ceasar's for lunch. When we cam back we had to wait about 10 minutes and then finally the costumes came out. The one that my Aunt helped with came in first place! So we left there and went home. We went swimming and there was a marathon of Scooby Doo on tv and the boys wanted to watch that. My Aunt asked if I wanted to spend the night again so I said sure. We slept out in the trailer again. The next morning we went to Lil' Chef and had breakfast. We went for another four-wheeler ride that day and went swimming again. It rained that day REALLY hard for like 10 minutes and then it stopped. Later that night they came over to our pond and went for a canoe ride. Then they left cuz my aunt had to take them back home in Detroit today. It was an awesome weekend!

Michigan's Adventure

Listening To: London Bridge by Fergie
Feelin': good

So on staurday morning my dad and I, just the 2 of us, headed to Muskegon and went to Michigan's Adventure for the day. We got there like 20 min. after they opened and hit the water park first. We went on water slides and the wave pool where in a big pool this wall like sends HUGE waves out and you can ride them and stuff wich was fun. But my favorite water ride was called Funnel Of Fear. It took about 45 min to an hour to wait in line but it was worth it! You start out on an intertube that fits about 6 people and then go on a slide and it goes up and down then you shoot down and come out into this huge funnel that was about 4 stories tall and you shoot up about a third of the way and came down and then back and forth until it dies down and you end in a small pool to exit. IT WAS AWESOME!! Then I hit the wave pool a few more times and then dried off and I got my clothes on. My dad and I hit 3 rides at the amusement park cuz we were tired after a long day at the waterpark. One was called Logger's Run and you are on these log type boats and the water takes you around kinda slowly and then you shoot down and get splashed, it was okay. Then we hit one called Wolverine Wildcat. It was a coaster and it was a smaller version of another coaster called Shivering Timbers. On Shivering Timbers (wich was more fun) you go really fast and go slowly up hills and shoot down and you do it over and over again. My dad didn't really like it cuz it hurt his neck :( So then we left and got a hotel in Grand Rapids. It took us about 20 min to a half hour to find the hotel. We saw it but couldn't find the road that lead to it and when we finally got there there all out of rooms! Luckily there was a Holiday Inn Express about 2 min away that had rooms. We got to our room and it was obviously a smoking room so we had to get a different room. We both showered up and went to a Logan's Roadhouse. I got some babyback ribs that were to die for. The were so good! We got a takeout ice cream at Coldstone Creamery and went back to the hotel and ate it while watching a movie on TNT. I fell asleep before it was over with though ;) So the next morning we woke up and went to the local IHOP cuz I was craving a good Belgian waffle, what kind of hotel breakfast doesn't have a waffle maker?!? So we drove around and we found that IHOP. Then we just kinda drove around and the went to a West Michigan Whitecaps game. We were a lil early and on the way in we saw an AJ's Family Fun Center that had putt putt golf. We did that and then watched the game. Whitecaps won, wich was cool. When we got home we were so tired that a slept like a baby, and if felt good!

A Lil' Bit Of Catch Up

Listening To: But It's Better If You Do by Panic! At The Disco
Feelin': My feet hurt and I'm tired

So on Monday we had a big storm and we lost power. We were just starting to light the candles and we looked out side and the wind was blowing like crazy and the tops of the trees were swaying back and forth really hard and fast. My mom said that we should go in the basement so we brought down a board game and started playing it. We were down there for about 10 min. and the wind stopped so we went back upstairs. Tuesday my dad and I went to my grandparents who live 5 min. away so they also were without power. They had there water hooked up and my dad wanted to know how to do that. So my dad got that hooked up to the generator along with our T.V. and fridge. That night my grandparents got there power back so when my dad got home at midnight he hooked it up and we had power, on the day when we had just gotten our generator up and was prepared for another few days. Figures.

My Aunts and Uncles and grandparents all live right close to eachother, being seperated by a field. Beacause of the storm, a lot of trees were down over there. So my cousin that lives about an hour and a half away drove himself up here to help and to spend time with my family, right on the week end my dad and I will be gone. Figures. So today I went over and helped him out and hung out with him too. First we moved a big pile of rocks for my grandma. Then we had lunch and started using the DR Brushmower on our riding trails. He used the mower while I went and clipped the overhanging branches that would be in the way of my grandparent's golfcart and everyone else's quads.

So if you don't know that I love to swim, then you obviously don't know me very well. It seems like that every night I'm always asking my parents to take me swimming at my Aunt's inground pool who lives about 5 min. away too. Tonight my mom took me swimming! This Summer I taught myself how to swim underwater without plugging my nose. Wich means I can now dive the right way:

So tomorrow my dad and I are leaving for Michigan Adventures. We're leaving at about 8:30 cuz the park doesn't open up till 11:00 and it takes about 2 and a half hours to get there. We're gonna find a hotel and then hit the water oark till it closes at 7:00. Then we're gonna go to the amusement park until whenever we feel like leaving. Then we'll go back and watch tv and chill until we fall asleep. The next day we'll go have brunch or whatever cuz at 2:00 we're gonna see that ball game and then come home. My bags are packed and only 13 hours separates us from that water park...

Splitting' Wood

Listening To: Hips Don't Lie by Shakira
Feelin: Sore and Excited

So lately my dad and I have been out cutting down trees and then using our wood splitter to chop em up. Then we load them into a trailer on our tractor and stack the pile in the trailer. It's been really hot out lately though. Today, the feel temp was 99 degrees! It can be kinda miserable. We stopped and came back to our house to have lunch and it was so hard to get back into it to finish the job. My dad says that it'll help get me in shape for football season comin' up and he really appreciates all the help I give him. It also helps heat our water and our house and stuff cuz we have a woodstove. It'll all pay off though cuz next weekend we're going to Michigan Adventures on Saturday and staying in a hotel and the next day we're gonna see a West Michigan Whitecaps baseball game. It's a minor league team wich is like a step below the Tigers and all them. Right now though my dad and I are going over to my Aunt's house to go swimming. I LOVE to go swimming and want to go almost every day so I'm always excited when someone will take me.

Listening to: My sis watching TV
Feeling: Bored

So on Saturday me, my mom and my sis went to see Pirates Of The Carribean: Dead Man's Chest. It was so good! The special effects were awesome, like with Davy Jones and his crew, pretty sweet. I liked the part where Will Turner and commodore Norrington were fighting in the big wheel, it was cool. I hate how it just ended, it's driving me crazy cuz I wanna know what they're gonna do with the heart. I don't know if I'll be able to wait 'til next Summer.

Ben Wallace, I'm Very Dissapointed In You!

Listening To: The TV
Feeling: Dissapointed

I can't beleive that Ben Wallace did that! He left the Pistons over 10 million dollars. Detroit offered him 50 mil. for 4 years and Chicago offered him 60 mil. for 4 years. He won the Defensive Player Of The Year 4 out of the 6 years he was with the Pistons. Does he not see what all he has with the Pistons??? Ben was my basketball hero. He was awesome, and he left. I bought 2 jerseys of his, so much for them:( My mom and Dad got me a big bobble head of him for Christmas with a PISTONS jersey on, not a Bulls jersey! He should stay with his home.

Dirt, Cement and Housework

Listening To: nothin'
Feeling: Sore and Tired

So this morning I woke up and there was a list on the island counter that listed all the housework that was to be done today. My dad was still sleeping cause he has to go into work at 2:00pm. So we couldn't vaccumor anything else. So my Aunt Janet had some black dirt delivered to her house last night and my sister and I went over and helped even it out in her gardens and stuff this morning. She also was having cement put in her driveway and at 10:30am the trucks were there. My sis and I left at arond 11:45am, right after we had lunch there. When we got home my dad was awake so my sis and I went to work. I just finished and when my mom gets home, I REALLY hope she takes me swimming...

Happy 1st Of July?

Listening To: Miss Murder by AFI
Feeling: Bored

On Saturday my friend asked me if I wanted to help work the concession stand at a baseball tourney and I did. It was kinda fun, the food was free for us! But once that was done, my sis came and picked me up and my family had a BBQ. The big news was my cousin, Susan, is now engaged to her 3 year boyfriend, Stewart! This is them, look at that rock!

Susan has a son and so does Stewart. Stewart's son is named Austin and is older than Susan's son, Rogan.

They get along great, and they're both so cute.

After the BBQ, of course I went swimming and Rogan and Austin came to. Then we had a campfire and had some small fireworks for the 4th of July. Now, usually my family all gets together and we have a big show of fire works, on the 4TH OF JULY! This year, for some reason we didn't. It felt weirder than most 4th of Julys because 1. it was on the 1st and 2. most of the family wasn't there. Oh well, tomorrow though, we might go to the city's fireworks.
