Here are a few pics from the pool party I threw!
|Tiki torches were scattered around the pool.|
|I think they were all commenting on my dog... Or they were really fascinated by the chair.|

The Michael W. Smith Concert!
|The Michael W. Smith concert was awesome!|
I threw a pool party in the middle of the month for any kids from my youth group to attend and they could bring friends. It was a bunch of fun and we had probably around 20-25ish kids. I learned that my camera is really only good for taking Macro shots or posed pictures. (Note the blurriness in all of them) We had cake and ice cream to celebrate my friends 18th birthday (Happy Birthday Ben!) and after we got out of the pool we danced a bit (Swing Dance!) and I learned the Pretzel! Whoo! I was able to use my amazing "Pretzel Skillz" later that weekend at a wedding :) I didn't get any chances to take pictures at Art Street but it was a bunch of fun (and HOT!) Iced Chai, beer battered cheese curds YUM! Afterwards my friend came over and was waiting for his ride home and we played catch for over and hour in the front yard. I'm trying to convince him to go out for his baseball team at school now ;)
The Michael W. Smith concert was amazing! (Although the energy level at kamp was higher and the average age was lower. Haha!) I asked his tour crew to tell him his friend from Kanakuk was there but sadly he had to leave town right away afterwards so we didn't get to reminisce about stretching our calves together at Kamp... So sad.
I sent my mom to TX for her Birthday (Happy Birthday Mom!) and I miss her like CRAZY!
So what have I been doing in my mothers short absence?
I've been doing homework, watching movies, baking brownies, realizing I forgot to add an ingredient into the mix, eating the brownies anyway (cause hey, a brownie's a brownie with or without the chocolate sauce) I cleaned the house, (including my room. WHOA!) did the laundry, picked 20 tomatos, read a book, made up a dance, went to a movie with friends (transformers 3, meh, don't waste 3 hours) watched as it unfolded before my eyes in S.L.O.W.M.O.T.I.O.N. as my friend spilled a bucket of popcorn on his lap, then shrugged, handed me the half filled bucket and ate it off his lap... (Hahaha!) gave directions, re-gave directions, watched a man carry a nerf gun into a bar that was next to the cinema and scratched my head, sang "Colors of the Wind", got "Colors of the Wind" stuck in my head, decided to learn the chords to "Colors of the Wind", found out I can hit Pochauntus' high note (if I actually sound good at it is a whole nother story ;)), went to DSW to look for some boots I saw last time I was there, almost cried when they aren't on the clearence rack anymore, realized my hair is really Blonde and got really excited, frowned when my dad asked me if my hair was orange, realized it was just the lighting in Best Buy (Phew!) learned how to attach a trailer hitch, learned how to attach a boat to a trailer hitch, took a nap, watched "The Notebook", decided I really hate romance movies, mocked the "I'm a bird" line, ate the last of the yogurt in the house, made a grocery list, added yogurt to that list, crafted a foolproof plan with Breanna so she will catch the bouquet at my wedding, (I'm not getting married anytime soon, no worries) and my mom has only been gone since Friday! GAHH! I still have till Thursday! Who knows what I'll accomplish! Craziness at its finest.
I could've made that a whole seperate blog post. Oh well!
