One time.....

a little girl came down an escalator to meet the rest of her family....

I modeled for my sister's abc board that she made....

Kwasi and Max played drums with their shirts off

my sister dressed as a southern belle for Halloween and no one had the heart to tell her that she shouldn't....

Laur and I won enough tickets to buy the kickball we'd been wanting all day....

 Max loaded his gator with fireworks to take over to the neighbor's

I found these old pictures and thought I'd share.

VT

Finally posting about Vermont. Sorry to my avid followers (joke; my mom doesn't even read this blog)

We went to Lower Falls in New Hampshire and swam/did some rapid swimming. I went there earlier in the week before my cousins got there with gramma, Max and Josie, but grams wouldn't let me swim because of my infected burn from the iron I dropped on my leg haha. So what did we do instead? We counted the number of butt cracks we could see. Oh, how I've missed the people here. 

The second trip gram wasn't there to stop me. So here Emma and I are about to attempt getting used to the water. If you look closely you can see her behind me haha.


Down below where we did rapid swimming there was an area where you could jump off the rocks into the water. Josie's braids.

Later that night we went to some stock car races. My cousins wanted to dress like the locals, so they hit up Walmart and got some new clothes hahaha.

Jonah, Mitch and Hunter right before the races. Jonah kept having people yell "yeehaw!" at him hahaha

My favorite place in the whole world.

me being cute...HA!

Things not documented:
P&H truckstop
Roadside ice cream stops
worlds largest candy counter in Littleton/bookstore in Littleton
Smith's auction
Harry Potter with the locals (the theatre wasn't even close to full on opening night haha)
Peacham and all the cute buildings everywhere
The water holes that we went to
Story time with grams
and many more...

I'm sad that was probably my last time at my grandparents ever, but I'm happy that I got to spend time there with family. It's my favorite place in the world and I'm so glad I got to go one last time. I have so many happy memories there and will always cherish them.
