An awesome start to a potentially awesome summer!

So, like my title says, it has been an amazing start to a potentially amazing summer. I hope you have time to read this whole blog entry because it is going to be a while. You would not believe all that I have done in the past 4 days. It has been so much fun! So much fun!
First of all, I want to tell you something funny. On Wednesday, I didn't have school, and the day before I had been to an amusement park with my school, and well on Wednesday I slept till ONE O'CLOCK! For some of my friends, this isn't like a huge deal. But I was so beat! With finals and the end of school I needed sleep!
Friday was a interesting. In my family, we have something called pajama rides. Well, Friday morning, I was awoken at about 9 o'clock to my little brother telling me that we were going on one. Let me explain what one is. It is basically a surprise as to where you are going. Like sometimes, they will be at night after you are in your pajamas and they just yell pajama ride, and you run for the car! This time it was in the morning, and I got up, actually changed, my mom said I would want to for where we were going, and we were off! We went and got donuts! (Did you know Friday was National Donut Day? My mom didn't know this when she had first planned it, cool?) It was one good donut!! (= Then we did some errands, and then we started going. We were getting farther away from home, and I recognized where we were, but it was like, why are we going this way? So she let us start guessing. My smart brother asks if we are going to see James. Of course, earlier, I had been thinking maybe we were going to see him for lunch, but little guy in the back guesses, and my mom said that we were going to get him for the weekend! WOW! AWESOME! FUN! So we got my brother! <3 It was such an amazingly, awesome weekend! That night, we went to graduation! Every senior graduated, so that was good! I got to visit with some friends after, and then went home. Another amazing day!
Saturday, was my parents anniversary. So, since my mom LOVES canoeing, that's what we did. And we took Mac with us! Oh my my my! We found out that he likes butterflies, and lily pads! Okay, so a canoe, you have to be careful not to tip. So my mom sat with Mac, I did the bow, and James did the stern. He was being an older brother which sometimes equals a pain! (In a very nice way!) He laid down, sorta in the seat, while I paddled. Now, this was my first time paddling like a lot, and he was back there getting a tan. If you know my brother, I am sure you are nodding your head and picturing him doing this, and if you don't know him, I want to let you know that he is an amazing guy! I am not being mean by saying this, we love each other so much, he will never let anything happen to me, and I won't trade him for was all in good fun, much to his enjoyment! Then, we had steak which James did, and then he and I went to a graduation party. It was fun. I love graduation parties. I have grown up doing them every year since my dad and mom are teachers. It's what I do, so I had fun at this one. They had a pool there, and my brother (surprise surprise) was going to throw me in, but then I got him to stop, but nevertheless, he got me wet by the end. Then I went to my friend's house for a while, and then James and I went home to see our mom who was cleaning up from making 24 pieces of fried chicken, potato salad, and brownies...because on Sunday...
We went to West Point with some really good friends of ours, and this is a Kristina and Isabella story..but I am not going to tell it like that, but know that Isabella was there! We went and had a huge picnic, played games, put our feet in the water, sat on the train tracks, watched boats, and just had a really fun day! It was some walking, sweating, laughing, and just all kinds of stuff! It was tons and tons of fun! It was my first time in the library, and as Isabella would tell you it wasn't much fun because we didn't see anything like we didn't look at any books, we just went to the top, where you can go outside and look. It was really cool! So that was Sunday...
Monday...which is today, was a lot of fun! I woke up around 9ish, then did some chores, and then got to go visit a really good friend of our families. She is a really amazing person! She manages so much and just wow! So we spent the day with her, her daughter-in-law, and grandson. He is the cutest thing! A really, really happy baby. He liked my camera, but I didn't really let him have it, so... (= My younger brother learned how to fish today! They gave him and I fishing poles and tackle box. It is pretty sweet! I didn't really fish today, but I can't wait to fish when James comes home next and show James and my little brother up. I am going to try to catch more than them...don't laugh. I've done it to James before and I am going to try once more! So Isaac caught his first two fish! 2! That was exciting!
So, now I am home. I have to work on my friend's birthday present. Oh! And my friend is flying home from her foreign year trip TOMORROW!!! AH! I get to see her on Wednesday, it is going to be tons of fun to have her home again!
Well, for now, I must get to work on this present! I have a lot to do and I want to have it done by Wednesday. Yeah right...but at least I can try!

Hope you liked reading about my weekend. It was better if you got to experience it, like I did! was ...

Life, Love, Sisterhood (starring Kristina and Isabella)

It was an oddly weathered day when the two daring friends galavanted up to the newly decorated bedchamber of Isabella. They were together yet again. Good times were bound to happen. But things started off rather slowly. Laziness overcame both Kristina and Isabella, and the first hour and a half was swept away in reading, "work", and supplying energy to the body in the form of food. Isabella soon had to go fetch her horse and carriage to travel the bumpy roads of the kingdom in order to pick up her mother. Her mother was at Kristina and Isabella's second home/castle where an abundance of learning takes place. This is where Kristina and Isabella open their minds to the vast world of learning. There are many other maidens at this school, some fair, some skinny, some with long locks and some with short. There are also many princes and charmings, a few trolls here and there, and of course frogs hopping all over the place just waiting for a princess. This grand Canaanite Castle is known for its excellent school masters and outstanding academics. It's no wonder why Kristina and Isabella love it there.
Isabella soon arrived home and made her mind up that it was time to find an adventure. So the two traveled outside the safety of the kingdom into the realm of the unknown. A snack was on the mind of Isabella, but outside the castle walls all that was left was green. But that did not stop the undaunting Isabella and she gracefully pulled a leaf from the lush soil and took a bite. Kristina couldn't believe her eyes but was soon eating the leafy green as well. This snack did not satisy Isabella and she whirled herself around to find another "adventure." Spotting a wrangled tree, a lightbulb soon went on above her head. With a confusing look, Kristina watched Isabella as she darted through the wild brush coming back with a splintered piece of wood. Setting it down next to the tree, Isabella hopped on and frustratingly tried to pull herself up the wrangled tree. But fell short. Kristina, being the amazing friend she was, tried to help Isabella up this tree, but fell short as well. Soon, wetness touch the soft skin of Kristina and Isabella and they both looked up into the greying sky. Rain was imminent. Isabella jumped from her splintered wood and ran into the middle of the vast field. Rain began to pour down, and while Kristina hung under the shadow of the wrangled tree, Isabella ran through the field and landed herself on her back, staring up into the huge abyss of grey clouds. Kristina could not stand being the only one out of the beautiful droplets and soon ran into the torrents of wetness.
The rain diminished quickly, and Isabella was determind to climb that tree. Again Kristina watched as Isabella ran to find some other means of help and gasped when she came back with some sort of stepping ladder. This was sure to get Isabella up in the tree. And it did. Isabella finally reached her destination and was astonised as she looked unsuspectingly at a limb of the willowed tree and saw one's of nature's miracles- baby robins being hatched. This intrigued Isabella to quite an extent and she could not let such a photographic moment go by. There was only one problem. The babies mother was not so happy about this. But soon, out of fear, the mother left and Isabella had her only shot to capture life at it's finest. And capture it she did. Though perfection was limited because of shakiness, seeing that she was balancing on a limb, Isabella managed to photograph the new life.

Things only intensified as the night went on. Kristina and Isabella ran into many a more adventures that evening. Monster Houses laid in the background and creepy cats lurked in the shadows. As a finale to their adventurous day, Kristina and Isabella hopped in their carriage and rid a long and spooky ride to a very eerie place. (the most serene place in the world). Only a ray of light was now still shining, as late afternoon became night. They quickly searched the almost black ground and found what they were looking for. The eerie creeking of a well brought shivers down Kristina's spine and she insisted that they leave at once. Though refuting at first, Isabella quickly complied seeing as something was moving in the bushes not to far from them and she didn't want to stay long enough to find out what it was.
So off the two beautiful damsels rid into the night, arriving home safe and sound soon to depart to the bedchamber. They both have majestic days tomorrow and of course must get their beauty sleep.
