Air Force Academy, Colorado

About a week ago we finished school! We celebrated by bringing Clayton and Spencer Bailey over and we went bowling and swimming. At the bowling alley I got a strike which I didn’t get very often. At the swimming pool there was a 3-meter high dive that I dove off. We went to the swimming pool a different time but without Clayton and Spencer. Next we went trail riding on horses. We weren’t supposed to trot but we did anyway.

We also went to the Royal Gorge. The Royal Gorge is a giant crack-shaped thing made by erosion. It was right next to the Rockies. It was about 1,500 feet from the water named the Arkansas River. We went on a tram, inclined train, and a super long bridge. Sam, Will, and I went on a roller coaster kind of thing. Later we saw a gunfight.

The next day we went to the Galvin’s new house. We went to a lake with them. We went canoeing too. We also saw their three horses. Then we went and had dinner at a Vietnamese restaurant. This morning we went shooting arrows. Our instructor’s name was Mr. Doug. He was very funny. On Wednesday we are going to the Galvin’s house again.

Air Force Academy, Colorado

A couple days ago we went to the Bailey’s house for a sleepover. We watched the Dark Knight, played rock band, and went to the park with them. We also had a wonderful dessert.
Next we went to the Kiraly’s house. We had lots of fun sword fighting with Amen and crash testing with Spiderman. We also played guitar hero with Zach.

Later we biked through Garden of the Gods. We stopped sometimes to climb rocks, but we never went very high. Later with the Bailey’s, we hiked back up to Stanley Reservoir with the Bailey’s. We stayed overnight there and had a camp fire. We went swimming, and then hiked back down. Today we are going to a different sight.

Kansas and Colorado

In a different place in Kansas we went to a campground that sold antiques. We met two kids there and played at the park with them.

A couple days ago, we entered Colorado. We met up with some of our old Alaska friends, the Bailey’s. We played Cops and Robbers. Will and I hid from them so well that 30 minutes later we came back and everybody was looking for us!

Next, we went to Ms. Ronda and Pastor Gene’s church. It was their last sermon because they are moving to Alabama.

At Roger’s house, we made a garden. First, we put down railroad tracks in a rectangle. Second, we put down dirt. Lastly, we planted strawberries. We also drove a bulldozer, a
4-wheeler, and rode a horse. On the 4-wheeler I went 32 mph in a 100 yard long area! For dinner Roger literally dumped our food on the table and we even ate with our hands!

Later, we went to the Bowen’s house for dinner. We played Monopoly and had pink stuff (pink jello) for dessert. Today we’re doing school at a library. It really stinks because all the other kids are out and we aren’t!

Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Michigan

June 3
Next we went to visit some people named the Conge’s. We played with them on their trampoline. We also played with their dog, Duke. Next, we went to another nice family named the McCloskey’s. Afterwards, we saw one of Shakespeare’s plays. Then we went back to the Conge’s house and said good-bye.

Then we went to see our old neighbors from Texas, The Galvin’s. Their names are Shelby, Olivia, and Mr. and Mrs. Galvin. They’re going to Hawaii tomorrow. Now we’re going to Colorado.

May 27
Awhile ago we came here to Great Lakes Navy Base in IL. We went swimming and did tons of school. We also went fishing and bowling. I found some sea glass. Then we went back to Newmar to get some parts. We got a tour of Newmar. We saw how they put the coaches together.

Next we went to Charlotte, MI. When we were there, we went to a giant skateboard park. It was so awesome. After that we went with my Mom’s college friend, Ms. Julia to Chicago, and her family came too. We went on a boat tour and saw the Sears Tower and the John Hancock Center. We also got on our bikes and went all over the place. We had ice cream for dinner, and then went home. Today we’re leaving Illinois.
