I know, it's a little tacky for a title, but it's true!!
Maybe I've just been aching to share the dozens of
pictures I've been taking with my new camera ;-)
My uncle and his family arrived on Monday.
Since then, we've been doing quite a bit.
We couldn't help but laugh at the weather forcast...
What was even funnier was that there really was
a lot of smoke because the base was burning leaves!
Tuesday was my mom's birthday and we went to the ocean.
We stayed there 3 hours!
For the first time ever, I actually got a sunburn.
(I've only ever tanned, and I'm not easy to burn)
Wow, sunburn hurts!!! I'm glad I've missed out on it before!!
Later on, we celebrated mom's birthday by eating cake.
I made her a cake, but one of the roses got smooshed
and the bag busted so there was excess scribbling...
See what I mean? Oh well, it tasted good!
We later we took her out to Olive Garden (her favorite),
where I drank some of this...
Yummy strong brewed decaf coffee!!
(Olive Garden's is almost as yummy as Starbucks!)
Yesterday we went to the Aquarium.
It is on an island and I loved the view over the bridge...
The aquarium was quite fun (and exhausting).
The stingrays are my absolute favorite... I love petting them!
They're so friendly!
I couldn't get a very good picture of them though
because of the bad lighting and they swim and flap too fast.
Here was a waterfall...
This was a neat albino toad...
This adorable snake was looking right at me...
Afterwards we went to the beach on the island...
Today my mom picked up my gramma
and my great-gramma at the airport.
From 10am-2pm I was busy making cakes for my graduation...
My theme colors are black/pink/white.
I made the tassel on the smiley the same as my tassel.
It was kind of weird writing 'congrats' to myself!
This evening my dad and I are meeting with pastor
at the church to do a rehearsal for graduation,
as well as do things with the sound system.
Tomorrow we're decorating the church :-)!!!
I hope you all are having a great week!
Here's a random pic I took this week
(did I mention that I LOVE my new camera!)...
