Weekend Fun- Birthdays and Amusement Parks!

So my mom recently celebrated her 50th birthday!! So my sister and I decided to throw her a surprise party! It was a lot of fun to plan, but hard to try and run around my mom without her knowing! She is soo sneaky!! We didn't do it the day of her birthday because it was in the middle of the week and she lives in Virginia so I needed to come on a weekend! So I felt bad because the day of her birthday (according to my sister) she was sad because nothing "big" happened on her big birthday! I found that kind of funny, not because she was sad, but because I knew what was coming! He he!! Anyway so of course planning something two states away never goes as planned, but things still went well! We had it as this place called Baker's Crust! It's a really cute place-and they have great tomato soup! Here are some pictures from our little party!

Gag gift!

Blowing out the candles!

That night after the party I went with my friend Miranda to go and see Nights in Rodanthe. It was good, it was sad though. It wasn't quite what I wanted it to be. But it was good. The Notebook was better. *sigh*

Saturday we got up early and headed up to Williamsburg to meet my Dad's family at

It was a lot of fun, but it was a LONG day! Here are some pictures from the start of it!
This is me and my little sister A right before we headed over to the park in our matching shirts!

The only one missing here is Sis C! But here is my sister's boy toy , Lil Sis, Sis A, B Mom, my Dad, and me!

The crazy roller coaster that stops and hangs you over the hill for a minute before dropping you called The Griffin! It was SO much fun! One of the best roller coasters I have ever rode!

Picture of the monitor that the roller coaster pictures were posted on! Look at those screams!

It only rained towards the afternoon, so we were really grateful since it was supposed to rain all day!! We rode ALL the roller coasters in the park! Well I didnt ride the's old and its really jarring, gives me a headache. I had teh BEST ice cream cone (it was the sprinkles)! We went to some haunted houses that really freaked me out! The people there hide in bushes and pretend to be statues or scarecrows and jump out! It was so funny to watch them scare people! Anyway it was a good day! I am recovering from it this week though!!

I am excited today is Wednesday and that there is now only two days left of the week. Well three really since I have to work on Saturday. But we have decided to have a remnant sale since it is supposed to be so nice! People love a good deal ya know?

Hope you are all having a good week!

Hi... Amusement park sounds like a lot of fun.

We will be keeping in touch... and you will lear the trials and turbulences of living in Brazil.

By the way, where is Sidney from??
(I am asking so I can give some good information about the place).
