Spring Break

This week has gone by WAY too fast. Once Mom and Dad left for a wedding in Georgia, Janell, Braden and I set off to have all the fun we could.

Highlight #1: Bunny-sitting
My friend is on vacation in Moab and had us watch her bunny. Countless lonely hours at home have been spent stroking and feeding the fluffy rabbit, and I think I'm finally starting to grow on him. Now he nuzzles my hand when I open the cage.
Highlight #2: My lovely sunburn.
I sat inside, like usual, lazily reading a book on the couch. I glanced outside to see my neighbors playing with a ball in the street. I longed to be with them. Ever since Jr. High, I haven't associated much with my former best friends. I threw on my flip flops and head outside. They soon welcomed me, and we all head off to the park to play Four-Square. The longer we played, the more kids showed up. By the end, there were ten of us, all taking turns bouncing the ball. No matter how hard I tried to just be a kid with them, I still felt out of place. When I finally came home, I realized I was red as a cherry, and I hurt all over.
The next day I got out of the shower to discover my entire face was peeling. I attempted to scrub the skin off, but that just left soars all over my face. That's what I get for trying to relive the past.

Highlight #3: A Mall and Movie Adventure

One morning Janell announced a plan. A plan to take us to the movies. We left before 9:00 in the morning to go to the mall for a bit before the first movie showing of the day. We entered the mall to discover no one there to greet us but a giant plastic dinosaur and an empty treehouse.
 We strolled around, realizing there wasn't a single store in the entire building that wasn't closed. The only people there were a few old couples walking around for excersize. We gave up on the idea and crossed the large parking lot over to the theater. After the movie we walked over to Farr's Fresh Ice Cream for a treat.

Where I concocted this delicious creation.
Janell and Braden finished their ice cream fast, and I ended up taking mine with me when we left.

Highlight #4: The Social Gathering
A bunch of my school buddies had been scheming a party we referred to as "The Social Gathering" cause typical teenagers partying is WAY different than what we did.
We all agreed to meet at Ally's house. It was hilariously awkward when Ally was the last one to show up to her own house.

We walked around...

We drank fluffy lemonade...

...And we even walked around with our fluffy lemonade.

We ate pizza, the boys played video games, and Ally's little brothers harassed us for hours. By the end of the day we were all pooped.
But when we all got home we agreed on one thing... "Let's do it again!"

Highlight #5: Fondue with the Fam
With Mom and Dad gone, Janell planned the menus this week. Thursday was a fondue party, and we were all excited. We invited Kayla and Andrea to join the fun.
I was Janell's faithful co-chef, and we cooked up homemade pretzel bites to dip in the best homemade cheese sauce in the world.
I love my siblings!

After a week of free time and festivities, I'm really bummed I have to go back to school on Monday.
