We had a great weekend! Sonja and Krissy came after school on Friday, and we had a lot of fun. Haha, we took a potato and played spud with it. Originally, there was no pun intended. Then it broke, so it was a dud spud. And then we duct taped it back together, and called it the retro spud. All in all, it lasted two days, then this morning we threw it away because the little bits of pulverized potato were squishing through the duct tape. Twas gross.

We watched Patience, then went down to Dori’s to play Flashlight Tag for an hour. We actually ended up playing Capture the Flag in the dark, which was a lot of fun.

The next morning we got up early, got into the car, and drove the hour and a half to the mountain. By that time it was pouring, but since for the last three years it has rained and we haven’t hiked, we did anyway. Everyone donned huge ponchos and as many layers as we could find, and set off. And pray don’t misconstrue what I say- it was really wet. Pouring, really. NOT drizzle.
We looked like a drove of fat orange and yellow oliphaunts.
Poor Than, he got soaked and we almost had to turn around before the top. He started shivering and shaking, but we made it up to the falls. Which were remarkable, to do them justice. Quite pretty.
So then we headed down, after mom had fed Than a banana, given him an extra poncho, and Krissy had stuffed the squished parts of her banana down my throat. With my permission, of course. :P
Then we went to dunkin’ donuts and changed into dry clothes, and drank hot chocolate. Last but not least we stopped at a beautiful bookstore and read for 45 minutes or so. Sonja, Krissy, Than, and I went immediately to the LOTR section, and found some pretty neat books. For instance, Gollum, by Andy Serkis. Had some neat pictures.
Well, I think I’m off to…I don’t know what. Something other than blogging. If you have any ideas let me know.

    Ah! The retro spud! HAHAHAHAHA! That was great! We need to make a retro spud in training and all his friends! =) Haha I am rather excited, can you tell? =)
    WAAHAHA! I know why! I have FINISHED my last homework assignment of the year! =) Sorry, I do not mean to brag. If it makes you feel better, I will have to do math over the ENTIRE summer, because I am really behind.

    OH YEAH!
    We saw a moose! It ran very close in front of Mom and Than, and they never saw it. Very cool!
