Elevate

The 80s party rocked last night! We had a band (Seth and the Sethettes), and games and had a really good time. The new pastor (Pastor Chris) spoke for the first time and he was really good. He talked about being a disciple of Christ. The funniest thing about last night was Dad. He dressed like a punk rocker and had eyeliner and everything. It was funny! Brian wore like size zero leather pants, Josh had bright red skinny jeans, and Kierra was extremely over-accessorized. It was awesome. (And by the way, Elevate is the name of the high school group at our church). I am starting this year. I have a feeling that I am going to like Elevate.

Disneyland

This blog entry will tell you about our adventures at Disneyland. Okay.

We left early in the morning planning on arriving at the park just as it opened. "We" is me, Faith, Mom, Dad, Matthew and Christian. We went on the big rides first and then got fast passes for Indiana Jones and Splash Mountain, before getting hand stamps and piling in the car to go to lunch at In 'n' Out. Upon finishing lunch we got back into the car to redeem our fast passes. But there was one small problem.

The car wouldn't start.

Mom called Triple A to come jump our car. The guy who did it for us said the car needed a new battery as soon as we could get it. So instead of going straight back to Disneyland, we looked up our old mechanic and went to get a new battery. While replacing it, Jim (the mechanic) discovered that we had no brakes and he fixed those for us too. We were there for a few hours and bored out of our socks, but there was nothing we could do.

Finally he was done. Mom dropped us off at Disneyland and then went to Goms and Gomps's to take a nap. We went to Indiana Jones, but it broke down, so instead we went on Splash Mountain. Right before the ride started, as we were sitting in our seats, Christian asked the cast member nearest to us if he would get wet on the ride (he was kidding). She nodded her head and kind of laughed at us. After Splash Mountain, Dad said Faith, Christian and I could go off on our own. Faith didn't want to go, so Christian and I set off toward Tomorrowland with the mindset that we were going to ride Space Mountain nine times in a row.

But the line for Space Mountain was 30 minutes long and being 14-years-old, we didn't have the patience to wait that long. Instead we went into the Star Tours gift shop, and morphed our faces into Luke and Leia's bodies so it was like we were them. We didn't buy it though. It was too expensive. Then we bought a cream cheese-filled pretzel dipped in mustard.

It was amazing.

We were dying for more food after that so we got in a fight over the last packet of mustard. We didn't think to just get another packet. Um can you say blonde moment? Then we went to a dance party thing that was a lot of fun. During our random dance moves, Dad called Christian to say that Mom was on her way with dinner (Del Taco) and that we had to meet them where the tram drops people off so we could eat. We practically flew there.

So we ate and then went back in to go to Indiana Jones. But it was still broken down. So we went to Tomorrowland back to the dance party, and then we went to see the fireworks. After that we went to It's a Small World (well they dragged me kicking and screaming to It's a Small World) and Christian asked a cast member if the ride was scary. The lady shook her head and said no. That ride is like a scene out of a horror movie. With the dolls and everything . . . . *Shudder*

Then we went to Main Street to buy souvenirs. I bought a scarf and when I was checking out, I asked the cast member if she knew the muffin man (see video). I'm pretty sure she thought I was crazy.

Over-all the day was fun. I'm glad we went.

The Beach and the Baloon

The balloon ride was awesome. It was kind of windy so we couldn't go up 500 feet, we went up 300 instead. But it was still cool. Today we went to the beach and we spent the whole time in the water with our boogie boards. I had never been boogie boarding before so that was cool. Christian came with us and we went to ride aid for ice cream when we were done. It was a fun, yet tiring day. Tomorrow we go to Disneyland. I will write about that later.

CA Stuff

Wow it's been a while since I wrote. We've been really busy and I haven't always had access to a computer. Last time I wrote we went to the beach so let me see what's happened since then.

Faith and I made a talk show called Who Needs Coffee. That was really interesting. We've been swimming a lot and we went to the library where we got some movies and I got a book which I'm already finished with. I really wish I had brought Uritus and the Sword of Fire with me so I could get some writing done. Mom is flying in today and we're going to do something. We've been staying at Goms and Gomps's (my grandparents) apartment for the last few days. Today we're going over to Abuela's house. My cousin Christian is going to be there. Other than that I don't think we're doing anything special today. More later.

Huntington Beach

Hey again! We went to Huntington Beach yesterday and that was a lot of fun. Aunt Laurie took us to the beach at around one o'clock. We stayed there for a while, before walking along the peir to Ruby's to get shakes. Faith and I went outside and stood on the pier and looked out to sea when Aunt Laurie was in the bathroom. If we looked hard enough, we could see two dolphins surfacing. It was really cool. After that we went back to the beach before we got tired and went to pack up our stuff. Well, we forgot where we parked the car, so we spent about fifteen minutes trying to find it. Finally we did. We put all our stuff in the car, and then walked around the streets looking in stores. At one point a guy ran around all four cross sections screaming at the top of his lungs. When he got to the place he started, a friend gave him a hi-5 and handed him some money, like he had been dared to do it. Over all it was a fun day. Today we are going to see Imagine That at the movie theater. Later.
