So we're eating burritos for dinner tonight when I feel something a little crunchy in my chicken. I say, "This chicken is crunchy." Daddy jumps up and shouts, "Spit it all out." Sure enough, he found my tooth in with the chicken. It wasn't easy to spot -- it really looks like a piece of corn.
I can't wait to see what the Tooth Fairy brings me. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post to get your answer.
Finally. The end is here. Campaign 2012 is over. Mommy and Daddy seem to be happier now that the phone isn't ringing all the time. I don't know much about either of these guys but Mommy and Daddy wanted us to stand by this sign across the street, so the good daughter that I am, I did.
Some people go their entire life without meeting their idol. I was so lucky to meet mine yesterday. Megan McDonald came back to Oberlin (where she graduated in 1981) for an important weekend. While in town, she went to Oberlin Public Library to talk about her world-famous Judy Moody books. You see, I am a HUGE Judy Moody fan and I was SOOOOOOOOOOOO excited to hear Megan McDonald talk.
What did she talk about? Lots of things: where she gets ideas for the Judy Moody stories, where Stink's name came from, things that Judy collects, how Judy Moody Goes to College is actually modeled on Oberlin, and her favorite Judy Moody book, among other things. When she was done with her talk, she read from a couple of the books. Then there was a drawing for a free Judy Moody book -- but I didn't win. That's OK, because Daddy bought me 4 Megan McDonald books and Megan McDonald even signed two of them for me!!! I can't wait to get all of the Judy Moody books -- maybe someone will get me one or more for my birthday or for Chanukah.
Grandma Stephanie and Grandpa Tom wanted their children and grandchildren to get together for a week this summer. They found a place in Galveston, right near the Gulf of Mexico, and invited everyone to join them. Boy did I have fun.
Most of my time was spent in the pool. I did lots of kickboarding and floating on noodles and watching Gabi and Alice jump into the pool (regardless of whether or not someone was there to catch them).
When you spend 4 or 5 hours in the pool every day, you inevitably get tan lines.
The Gulf of Mexico was 2 miles from where we stayed. Uncle Chris drove us over there one day. Here I am in his truck.
Since Daddy was too much of a wimp to get into the water, Uncle Chris carried me.
When I wasn't in the water, I wrote my name in the sand. Hopefully it's still there...
At the end of the trip, we all went to the beach for a grandchild picture. In the back row we have: me, Mikayla, Zachary, and Kylie. In the front row there's Alice, Matthew, and Gabi.
Grandpa and I had some quality grandpa-granddaughter time this afternoon -- he took me to Lakeside Amusement Park. It's basically an amusement park geared towards younger kids, like me (but not Alice and Gabi -- they're still a little too young). There were all sorts of awesome rides and I had a great time -- although you probably can't tell from the first picture :) My favorite ride was the Frog Hopper and I even went on the roller coaster!
Thank you grandpa for such a wonderful day. I loved it. (And thanks for taking pictures of me too).
Mommy and Daddy were looking for something to do with us this morning after Grandma and Grandpa and Aunt Diann left to go back to Denver. Mommy had the idea of making paper boats and floating them in the mountain stream outside of our room. So she found instructions online, we colored paper, and we folded the paper into boats. We floated the boats and even though they all sank in the end, we had a good time.
