That's what it's been around here! What shall I start with telling you about? Hmm..
Jamaica sounds like a good place to start. Or end, it's pretty nice for anything, but I'm going to use it for the beginning of my post :o) So, My Grandma's, brother, and I, got to go on a cruise to Jamaica! We had such a good time! And it was sort of a missions trip-like thing, so it was REALLY cool! We started out by flying to Miami, where we stayed the night and boarded the ship the next day. We then set sail for Jamiaca! When we got there, a couple of days later, we spent our first day on a beach excursion. It was so pretty! They do not lie, the water is BLUE! The day after that was our turn to do the missions part of the trip. We went to a special home for kids with disorders like Down Syndrom and things like that. I think that was my favorite part of the trip, those kids were amazing. So sweet and innocent, it's hard to really explain how cool it was.
(I'm sorry I don't have pictures to share... my computer tends to be... um... silly..)
A week and a half after we returned from that trip, My parents, brother, and I headed to Kentucky for a music festival that I'd been wanting to go to for a LONG time! It was such a blast! Every morning we went to Starbucks for breakfast and wifi :) then our parents would take Mikey and I to the festival, and they would spend the day doing something less, shall we say, exciting? Mikey and I got to see pretty much all of our favorite bands, there were some missing, but there were so many good ones there! we had an awesome time.

Those are some pictures from Kentucky.

Moving on, just yesterday, I turned 16! I had my friends Emma and Lindsay over for a sleepover the night before and in the morning we made, in the words of Emma "Lemon Pancakes with Blueberry junk on top" :-) Then we headed out! We had to drop Lindsay off at home so that she could give a riding lesson, and Emma stuck with us for a while. We went to the drivers center and I took my permit test (My mom and Emma patiently waited first in line with me, then while I read every question 2-3 times) But I passed! So it's all good! Now I can drive my car, which I named Vincent :)
Then we went to lunch at Olive Garden!! Yumm! After that, I had a consultation about me hair, (I'm going to have it colored or something soon..) then we went to Starbucks! After that we had to take Emma home. :( So we went home too, because a while after that we'd be leaving again for my birthday dinner with the family :-)

So that's pretty much the big stuff that's been going on!! (There's no shortage..)

Til' Later,
