Bayley ::

The fourth week of summer was fun. I felt happy. We went out a lot. My favorite things were playing pool, Olive Garden, and archery.

This week we played pool. At first I didn’t know how to hold the stick so I sucked. But after a game or two I was the best in the family. (I still am.) I just wish the game could end quicker.

After playing pool, we went to Olive Garden. The wait was half an hour, so we walked to Moonstruck Chocolates and had truffles. (Mine was amazing.) When we actually got to eat we had calamari, salad, beef ravioli and the best breadsticks ever. It was amazing food.

The next day we took an archery class. I was afraid I wouldn’t be as good as everyone else, but I was the best in the class. For the first half, I never got lower than a six. I even got three bullseyes! One round I shot twenty-two points! I’m trying to convince my parents to fence off the side yard so I can practice archery. And maybe tomahawk.

That’s what I did on the fourth week of summer. Pool, Olive Garden, and archery. I hope we do the same things next summer.


Hayden ::

This week was filling. I felt happy, We did a lot. My favorite things were archery, Olive Garden, and Red Robin.

At archery class me and Bayley and Dad have a bet. The bet was who gets the high score chooses where we go for lunch. Bayley got the high score of twenty-two. He chose Red Robin.

At Red Robin me and Dad ate wings. I ordered the kids mac and cheese. Dad and Bayley both ordered more wings and bacon cheese burgers.

At Olive Garden me and Bayley had Chicken Alfredo. We had desert and mine was white chocolate strawberry cake.

Bayley :


This week I had my first track meet, celebrated my birthday and then Hayden's, and lit fireworks.

At the track meet I completed in javelin, shot put, and discus. I came really, really close to a ribbon in javelin (4th place); sucked at shot put; won second place in discus! I hope I win lots more ribbons.

Our birthday cakes were amazing. Mine was a Reese's cake. It had chocolate cake and frosting with a peanut butter filling. It also had Reese's pieces and peanut butter cups to decorate it. I hope my mom makes another one!

We had a lot more fireworks than usual for the 4th of July. They were pretty cool, but the ones I wanted to see were at a big annual party up the block, but they got busted for illegal fireworks and ended early. I hope they run late next year so I don't miss it.

Hayden :

My birthday is on the 4th of July. Me and my family lit  tons of fireworks and I had my own birthday barbeque to celebrate.

Grammo & Pop Pop came up for our birthdays. They came to the barbecue and to John's Incredible and also to light fireworks.

Me and my brother went to GameStop. I wanted Lego City Undercover and my brother wanted Super Mario Smash Brothers Brawl. We traded in some of the games we don't play anymore, so I didn't have to pay anything, and Bayley only had to pay twenty buck for his game.

It's a, it's a, it's KARL THE SPIDER. There was a giant spider on the wall. Pop Pop named the spider Karl. Dad got a ladder and sucked him up in the shop-vac.

At the track meet I did discus and I waited in line for the hurdles. I jumped over them really fast and I think I won, but it was chaos at the finish line and I didn't get my ribbon.

Hayden :

Grace doesn't like miniature golf. She did like finding the frogs there. After, we went to a Red Robin and saw Mr. Pahakula, our principal. They sang us Happy Birthday and he sang too. Then we went to Big Al's.

At Big Al's we went bowling at the bowling alley. When we were done bowling, we played video games. I got one thousand tickets on one game. I have 895 credits left on my card.

Hayden's Party

After bowling, we needed a snack. At Menchie's I got cake batter yogurt and a lot of toppings. Everybody loved to eat the frozen yogurt.

At Track Club I wanted to try the hurdles. After I jumped over them I wanted to do them again. I knew I wanted to try them at the track meet.

These are things I did on the second week of summer.

Bayley :

This week I went to Laser Tag, miniature golfing, and Track club started.

The Scout Troop celebrated shad's birthday at Laser Tag. In the first round I sucked and got about the fifth lowest score out of everybody. On the second round I got the fifth highest score! There was also lots of candy and cake. We let Hayden come along since he'd never been before.

This week we went mini-golfing. We did all eighteen holes, but Grace stopped at two and Hayden started fooling around at ten. I lost my ball in the stream at hole six and had to use Gracie's pink ball. I got second place. Afterwards we went to Red Robin and bowling, which was a good idea. It was so hot outside I almost cooked.

Track Club started this week. We practiced javelin, shot put, and discus. I like all three. I might even win a ribbon in one of them, maybe more than one.

That's what I did this week. I hope I get to do more Laser Tag, mini-golfing and track this summer
