Fourth of July!

On fourth of July, everyone was excited to get to the mountains. We went to the mountains, because my grandmother (mimi) has a house there. When we got there, we settled in, and then went to the firework store. There, we got fireworks to put off that night, which we do every July 4th. The fireworks we got were really awesome! That night we set them off. It was so cool! The next day, our parents left, but the kids stayed. We went swimming at the water hole. The water was really cold, so, william was the only one who jumped off the log. The next day, All of us went to town. It was so much fun! We went to an animal place where there were lots of really cute animals. Next, we went to an old timey photo place, where we dressed up into old timey clothes, and we took a picture. Mimi and I were indians, and Andrew and William were cowboys. The picture was so awesome. After that, we went into a few shops. One of the shops was an ice cream place. They had awesome icecream. You could get chocolate or vinilla, and mix it with nuts, fruit, or other things. There were tons of choices. It was so hard to choose. I got vinilla with rasberries, and i forgot what william got, and andrew got ice cream mixed with nothing. All of them were so good. After that, we left. The next day, we went to the water hole again, and I was the only one who jumped off the log. It was so much fun!! We mostly just hung around the house that day. The next day we had to leave, :( so we helped mimi clean up, and went to long horn to have dinner with my dad. We had an awesome time, and i cant wait to go again!!!!!

Braves Game

Last Sunday (after camping), my dad, my brothers and I went to the Braves game. It was so cool because we were only 4 rows from the front. The only bad thing was there was no shade, so it was really hot. :( But it was still really fun. Every once in a while william and i would go up to the air conditioner, which felt really awesome. At the beginning, we all got frozen ice cream, which cooled us down and was really good. We left close to the end, but it was too hot to stay longer. when we were leaving, there was a coke zero thing where u would take a picture with your phone of a coke bottle, and send it in, and if u won, u would get a free coke t-shirt. both my dad and my brother tried twice, and nothing happened, but when my dad tried a third time, he won. We walked back and my dad gave the t-shirt to me. It is black with a coke zero on it. It is really cool. Also, all of us got free coke zeros. They were really good. I am so glad i went and it was so much fun!!


Last weekend my family and I went "camping". It was Friday when we left and went up to Helen Georgia, and camped at Andrews Cove. When we found our campsite we set up our tent. We have a big, two room tent, so it took longer than usual. Aft
er that, we went tubin
g down the Chatahochee (idk how to spell) It was so
much fun. It took about 2 hours to do the whole way. After we went tubing, we
got changed and went to town. Each child could get a treat. William (my little bro.) and I got an assortment
of candy,
and Andrew (my big bro.) got a hu
ge slice of mint fudge.
They were really satisfying. After we went shopping, we went back to our campsite, and
something tragic started to happen. It started to rain. We all decided that, thanks to andrew who brought

n, which worked perfectly. We watched a little bit of TV and the whole family ate dinner in the living room. Sadly, it was time to go to sleep. Andrew and I took the room with the smaller bed, My mom and dad took the king size bed, and William slept on a couch in the living, we should play a rousing game of apples to apples. It was really fun, especially because it was dark out, and we used candles and mini flashlights. My mom and william won. We stopped playing because we all felt drops! TRAGIC!! THE TENT WAS LEAKING!!! There was no thing we could do about it but go find a hotel. So we did. We went to 2, but they had no more rooms available. When we were finding another hotel with open rooms, my mom spotted a place where you can rent a cabin. We ended up doing that, and it was an awesome cabin. There were 2 bed rooms, a living room with a tv, and a kitchen. For dinner we had made hobo dinners, which is a bunch of raw veggies and a hunk of meat. We were going to cook them by the campfire, but
instead we cooked them in the ove
When we got up, we were all deciding on what to do that day. Finally my mom found the PERFECTEST thing. We would rent a boat and a tube at lake burton. And that is exactly what we did. We went up to my moms favorite lake, Lake Burton, and did my moms favorite thing, ride on a boat. We got there at one, and we got all ready, and got on our boat. It was SO MUCH FUN!!! When we got further out into the lake, we hooked on the tube to the back of the boat, and, andrew and I went first. It was awesome. Next, william and my dad went. William was so cute and he loved it. After they went, we all had lunch (sandwiches) that we brought on the boat. When we were done eating, we swam around the boat in the middle of the lake. After, we all got on the boat and all 3 kids went on the tube. That was fun! When william got off, andrew and I stayed on and went fast, which was really fun. We fell off a few times, but that was the funnest part. After we went, another tragic thing happened. We were lost. We tried asking one person, but sense we did not know the lake, the peoples directions did not mean much. Finally, after asking 4 people, we found our way back. We would have stayed out for another 45 minutes, but it started raining when we were finding our way. It was OK because we still got a long time out in the lake. When we got back, we changed and went home. Sense we go to andrews cove every year, we wanted to make the boat a tradition, cause it was like the funnest part of the trip. Our weekend was so awesome, and I cant wait until next year!!!
