Fun at Dollywood

Well, the last weekend of May my family and I, with some friends from Alaska, went to Dollywood in Pigeon Forge Tennessee.
We had to pay extra to get something very much like the Disney's FastPass, but all 7 of us kids split the cost so it was only about 5 bucks each. I'm glad that we got it cause it made all the main rides easier to get to. We waited about 2-5 mins instead of 15 or more mins inline. We all had a ball, I got to see my twin Michelle again, which I hadn't seen in about a year or so. I also got to meet her Fiancee Nathan, which I now can approve of. :P My family and I left Saturday morning, and had to stop by the Uptons to pick up some grain that we had ordered, then went up to Pigeon Forge to a camp ground. We set up camp, and waited for Michelle and her Mother Debbie to arrive. They camped out with us that night. It started to rain in the morning, but when it finally slowed down we packed up camp, ate, and got ready to go to the theme park. We met up with Nathan and Michelles' brother and sister at mall before we got to the park along with some other friends of ours, Ceri and Joe. (Joe is my Dad's boss) All 12 of us crammed into 2 cars and drove over to the park. It was alot of fun and I can't wait to do something like that again with them or with other friends!

Spring time, with a twist...?

Yes, it's spring down here! The grass is green and leaves are appearing! The weather has been nice and warm along with a cool breeze. We have started to work on our garden, I've also fixed my bike so I've been riding with a friend up and down our road.



We the other night had a small earthquake around 4:30 in the morning. I happened to not sleep all the night except for 2 hours.
I also happened to be on the floor trying to sleep while the earthquake appeared. I first thought it was the wind because I had heard it blow up against my window a moment before the quake started. While it was going on I thought the washing machine? But it was 4:30 in the morning there's no way it would be on, sometimes our washing machine shakes the house a little. I then thought earthquake? Then it suddenly stopped, but it was not over, no. It appeared again a second time. This one was a little larger then the last and lasted longer. The second one shook things in my room, while I lay there on the floor thinking what's going to fall on me. I look up to see my light above me. Frightened, I look to my left and decide it would be a good thing to seek shelter under my desk, by this time the quake was over nothing had fallen or broken. I still thought it would be a good idea to sleep the rest of the night under my desk, I push my desk chair out of the way and pull my covers under with me. I fell asleep within minutes, it was a good thing that I went under my desk because for the first time that night I got some sleep, it just so happened that after the earthquake had happened I would have to get up for work in three hours.


After work my Brother, Matt and I went up to Bowling Green KY to hang out before the movie we had planed to go see with our boss/kung-fu teacher, Josh my other Brother came up for the movie as well. We all went to see the Jackie Chan and Jet Lee's new movie The Forbidden Kingdom, it was a great film, getting to see Jackie Chan and Jet Lee fight against and with each other was just plan awesome. Around seven to eight o'clock that night I finally started to crash from the lack of sleep.
Well that's what has been happening with me as of late.

Snow

This is like the first Snow day that my friend has had this Winter. (I think)
My Friend Leta calls me this morning around 9:00 am asking if I wanted to hang out, I'm like yeah sure since you don't have school, so she found her sled that we've only used once, which happened to be the first Winter she got it. There was just enough snow to barely cover the grass so we tried to make a baby snowman. We used her sled to get snow from other places along our road. The neighborhood dog came out to greet us and climb all over us wanting to lick us, we tried to get him to help us dig, but sadly that failed. :( By the time we got enough snow to make our snowman the snow became to hard and wouldn't pack nicely to other wads of snow, so in the end we wound up giving up. We had fun over all, and it was funny to see my friend that hasn't been around a lot of snow interact with it. I did manage to give her a white wash :P *laughs evilly* Hahahahaha! Anyway here's some pictures of what happened this morning. Also the snow is already mostly melted.... yeah that's Tennessee for ya!





Our snow balls we made! Ha Eric I can make a good snowball!
