Hey guys, I can’t believe 2017 is over. I feel like it’s gone by so fast. Right now is such a good time for reflection, so many great things have happened. This year started with my second nephew being born. There is […]

This past weekend was so busy and so much fun. Yesterday was the fourth of July and I hope everyone had a great and safe day.
Friday: My cousins came up, So we headed out to my Grandmas house. My Grandma passed away when I was 12, but we kept their house so that way my cousins and uncles have a place to come up and stay for vacations and stuff. So Friday my mom and I headed out to see them all, hang out by the fire and have dinner. It was a pretty relaxing evening.
Saturday: Tiff came home, and had made plans with one of my cousins to go floating down the river, so Ash, a few of our other cousins and I tagged along at the last minute, which was tons of fun. Although mostly when I go in a tube down a river it’s a nice long sunshiny nap. I slept most of the way. but when I take my kayak then I have to stay awake to steer. After the river we went back out to my grandmas so see the rest of my cousins, eat dinner, and hang out by the fire some more.
Sunday: We celebrate my Cousins wedding, so a big Congratulations is owed to her. She and her husband went to Hawaii in December to get married, I’ve seen pictures it was beautiful. However since they had a private ceremony on the beach we didn’t get to properly celebrate them. So she and her husband had an amazing dinner for us and our other cousins.
I kinda feel like I need to explain this a bit. ok so my Grandma, Dzia-Dzia (that’s polish for grandpa) and Uncle Carl bought 10 acres in the woods a long long time ago, my grandparents designed and built their house on the back 5 while my uncle got the front. Then the next house is my cousins form my Dzia-Dzias side, then there is a random neighbor after them, and on the other side is my cousin from my Grandmas side’s cabin. Luckily the random neighbor let us create a trail at the end of their yard so we have trails going to and from all of our cousins. So we grew up very close to our second and third cousins.
One of the things we used to do when I was little was go out to the Indian cemetery late at night. We were never disrespectful, and never touched any thing. but it was a fun scary thing to do. We’d all pile up in a car and one of my cousins would drive is down there just before midnight, he’d have us all climb out and then when we weren’t paying attention he’d always drive off. The last time he took us was at least 10 years ago, we hid in the woods with his kids, and scared him so he never took us back. Well this weekend we all piled into the back of a truck and drove out there again it probably wasn’t the safest idea but it was so much fun.
Monday: The fourth of July/ Indepence day, (Here’s a link for if you want to know what it is) We went to watch the parade with my sisters, niece and nephew, then it was time for Tiffany, Jake, and Landin to go home so they can make it to their fireworks. And even though it was a great weekend, my anxiety still struggled a lot, so I went home and slept for the rest of the day, I woke up in time to leave to watch the fireworks. They were amazing.
I hope you all had a great Easter. I did, Saturday morning at the park there was an Easter Egg hunt I went to with my friend and her son and seen my niece and sister up there too. Later in the […]
I hope you all had a great Easter. I did, Saturday morning at the park there was an Easter Egg hunt I went to with my friend and her son and seen my niece and sister up there too. Later in the afternoon we went to have dinner at my sisters house, her, my mom, my niece, my sisters boyfriend, and his parents as well. We had a nice dinner, followed by a game of Pictionary.
Also this happened…
Because my family loves meI’ve never liked crab claws, I remember being little, and my sisters would chase me around my Grandma’s house with them. I don’t know why they freak me out, but they do. A while ago Ashley decided to stick on in my face, I screamed, fell on the floor, and then when she stepped back… I took off out side. This time I just locked my self in the bathroom, as that door is easier to open then the front door.
Any way the next day, Easter Sunday, I got to eat skittles again (I had given them up for lent). My mom, sister, niece and I went to church in the morning, then out to brunch. Later, I went over to my friends house for dinner.
Then my niece came over to spend the night, since there was no school today I just babysat at my house. Until this my sister always worked on weekend nights, so I she always spent the night at my house at least one night out of the week. They changed the days that she goes to her dads to every other weekend now, and my sister doesn’t work evenings any more, so she doesn’t spend the night at much, and some weekends not at all.
So how was your holiday? Does your family have as much fun torturing you as mine does to me? leave a comment below.
