Steve was blinking.. But he liked it :]


Ryan :]
The other night, we went and saw one of my favorite bands ever! I've literally loved them from the start! I first heard them back about four years ago and they've always been one of my favorites ever!! So then I heard that they were going to be playing with my brothers new band (which is amazinggg!!) and I literally fell off the couch.. well, maybe not literally.. but you get the point, I was insanely excited!!
So the night of the concert, we had no idea where it was going to be, well, we knew it was a java jazz, but we didn't know where that was. But we were going to be late so we ran out the door with a pretty good idea of how to get there, but nothing for sure. Then we ended up being super late because we had to go pick up Brooke, and I'm pretty sure she was high on something because I've never seen her so hyper in her entire life!! and she stole my husband.. :] But we ended up missing the first few bands, and all of my brothers band except the end of the last song. (it was their old guitar players last night) But then there were a few other bands, they were good, but no one really moved. Everyone just stood there and stared at them.
Then Monty came on!!! I'm not gonna lie, I almost exploded!! Me and Cody decided we were going to sing all the songs and freak out and probly mosh and just go crazy, even though we were probly going to be the only ones moving. But then they started playing and everyone freaked out!! and everyone knew the words and it was crazy!!!!!! It was probly the best night of my life :D The guys were hilarious!! We laughed through the entire show!! They played mostly their older songs (my favorites :D) but threw a few new ones in off their new album that I can't wait for!!! And I totally wasn't expecting them to use trumpets live!
Afterwards, we got to go talk to them and we all talked for about 30 to 45 minutes, it turns out there from Rhode Island! I never knew that! I wanted to live there for a while, then Maine, but now I'm leaning more towards New York or Seattle. I don't know, but it has nothing to do with anything I was talking about. But we ended up taking a few pictures, sharing fun stories, and laughing alot! :] They were really awesome to talk to, and they've been my heroes forever!! They have the most amazing music in the world!! It's incredible!! So basically, go check them out. There the best :D or :]

this is one of my favorite pictures ever!! except ryan got cut out :(
but steve looks like a stud :]

Good Times and Goodbyes... (Part 2)

The next morning, we had to get up at around 10 to take Mich to the airport :(
I was pretty tired after our radd night :] We left the house at around 11 and headed to Wal-Mart!! of course! I guess he wanted food to bring back with him. They don't have Dr. Pepper in Germany!!! I would die!! I love Dr. Pepper :] but he got salsa too, I guess they don't have that there either... or bagels.. or tortillas.. that's crazy! So we got his food, and packed it into his bag, and Perri was praying the whole time that nothing would explode in his bag! she was like "God! just put angels in here! and God! just don't let anything explode in here!!!" I love how much faith she has! It makes me happy :] So then we got to the airport and helped him carry his bags in and check in so he could leave. Then it was time to say goodbye!! It was soo sad!! Everyone cried, except me. I never cry, I don't know why. But I'm going to miss him! :( Then we went to go get some pizza! ((Papa John's deep dishes are the best in the world!!)) so while we were waiting we went to Pet Co. to get dog food and something else. I forgot what. But I decided I really really really want a parrot!! or a monkey.. that would be radd :] then we got our pizza and went back to my house, but when we got there Cody, Cory, Chris, Casey, and Ruben were there. So Perri was like "oh no! you guys can't have any!!" So we turned around and ran back to the truck while they chased us for our pizza! But it was square, so there were only 8 pieces, and half of it was veggie. So there wasn't enough for them, plus we were going to go pick up Shannon. So we decided to go have a picnic :] But it was raining, so we went and parked in the Lowe's parking lot in front of the flowers and ate our pizza in the truck :]
After that, we went and got Shannon and got 2 pizzas for the boys (they told us if we left with the pizza they were locking us out, so it was a peace offering :D) Then like, 5 minutes after we got there Jerry came over and they played x box for a minute before Casey had to leave. So we all went back to the church. That's where my mostly sleepless night hit me. I slept for about an hour on a pew at the front of the church. It was the best nap ever!! Then we saw my dads new car. It's way nice. I want it! but I doubt that's going to happen..

Good Times and Goodbyes.. (part 1)

I guess the story starts last night, which was Mich's last night in America!! sadness!! so I ended up staying the night with them so we could spend some time with him before he went back to Germany!! But it all started at youth group. We had the most anointed service ever!! Like seriously, everyone got prayed for and it was soo prophetic and God showed up hardcore and it was just crazy radd, but afterwards, we decided to go to Taco Bell!! (i love that place soo much!) and we got some amazing food! but while we were in the drive-through I had this genius idea! so i got out of the car and hid behind it and when the lady handed Perri her food I ran in between the truck and the window and grabbed the bag and took off running, Perri started screaming, OH MY GOD!! MY FOOD!!! and the lady freaked out, but Rach couldn't stop laughing. It was the best idea we've ever had :D oh, and sister Yaya (she has a crazy radd foreign name and that's just what she goes by) and her son were behind us, I don't know, everyone left the church and went to taco bell, it was pretty radd :D but they came up and started hitting the windows! but we didn't see them walk up and we had no idea that it was them! so it freaked us out so bad!!
But then we went back to the house, and found monster jello shots in the fridge!!! there the best things ever!!! I love them to death :D So we had a few of them, and Mich tried one, you should have seen his face!! he thought it was normal jello and had no idea that there was monster in it! so the carbonation kind of freaked him out a little, it was hilarious!! Then he went to bed.
But me and Rach decided to go down to the bay! it was amazing!! we listened to Coldplay, Mutemath, U2, Paramore and of course Red Jumpsuit!! it was the best!! but we got down to the little ramp thingie that goes out to the water, and there were a few cars and what looked like a college party. So she got freaked out, then freaked me out, and we decided to go play at the park instead :]
So after a while we headed home, but while we were walking home this dog jumped out of the bushes and started barking and scared us to death! but then rach was like wait, its snowbell!! I guess she had gotten out earlier that night and Lish couldn't get her to come back. So we got the dog and put her inside and stayed outside just on her street for a while then decided to go wake up Mich!! It was his last night and we weren't going to let him go to bed that easily :]
But what he didn't know was that his window was open!! So we climbed in his window, and after a few minutes of tripping over the TV and drumset, we decided to jump on him :] and we did. and it was radd :D
So after all of that fun, we decided to go to her room. By then it was about two, and we ended up going to bed at about four. She composed music and I played computer for a while. It was fun :]

My dog.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
So basically, I have the coolest dog in the world :] He's just the best. ever.
He's going to be 8 on May 15th, but he doesn't act his age :]
He loves to sleep in my room. But hates going to bed with me. So I have to drag him to bed with me or he cries at my door all night and I have to get up and let him in. He never falls asleep on my bed. He always lays right in front of my door and then gets on my bed when he's sure I'm asleep. I don't know, he's a weirdo :] He snores like a chainsaw.. Well, not exactly.. probably louder. I'm not even kidding. The first night we brought him home he was sleeping in my parents room across the house and I couldn't sleep because he was snoring so loud.
But the point of this blog was to tell you a story. So tonight, I was sitting on my bed reading some lame history book that my mom has me reading for my homeschooling, and he starts crying. And he cries loud. So I took him down (I didn't have much of a choice, if i don't he gets up at seven to go out) and he saw a frog! It was a cute little frog and he played with it for a second and then he got bored and we left it alone to deal with it's newly gained issues. Poor little guy.. So were walking for a while and we see another frog! So I let him play with it like the last one. Except this one was just a tad more hyper or something because it was hopping around like a psychopath, So my genius dog decided to eat it! I tried to pry his mouth open and get it out but it was too late. The poor froggie was in my retarded dogs bellie. )': But then, his mouth started foaming and he kind of looked like he had rabies, I was kind of worried he was going to freak someone out. No he didn't really have rabies, he does this all the time and the same thing always happens, I don't know why he still does it. So then I decided to take him home before someone saw him and called the pound or something that wouldn't be good. So now he's sleeping on my floor. By my door. On a towel so he doesn't get crap all over the carpet.
yes. my dog is a genius :]

Today is mothers day!!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
So i would like to say happy mothers day!
Everyone needs to spend today with their mothers :]
Moms are the best thing in this world. There kind and loving and will be there for you more than anyone else. They teach you important lessons and understand life differently than most people. They also give good advice. For instance, don't put normal dish soap in a dishwasher, and when we don't listen, we get to clean up the huge bubble mess that flooded the kitchen up to the counter tops and soaked everything :P
So lets give it up for moms!
We love you :]

We left Sunday and took some killer radd pictures in the car.

After all that fun, we headed back to the resort we went to the beach! But I didn't have a swimming suit yet so we just flew kites!
however, my bird was flight impaired... or just afraid of heights.
It took me 2 hours to get him to stay up in the air for about 5 minutes. If i was lucky..

Then we went to Wal-Mart to get stuff for smores and some wood so we could build a bonfire! And back to the resort.
The next morning Perri made us the best breakfast in the world!!!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It was amazing!!!
Then we decided to go down to the strand, then the beach.
The first stop was Ben and Jerry's!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Where they had a totally radd vintage photo booth!!!... that was broken.
So we used my camera instead!! :)
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It was pretty awesome.
Then we went to the beach, but not to swim...
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It was insanely bright! We're all squinting and it makes me laugh :)
Then we went to Rainforest Cafe. It was the most amazing restaurant I've ever been to!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Then we finally got to go to the beach. And you'll never guess. It was freezing!! It was seriously like -500 degrees. Seriously.
So we kind of got in up to our ankles, but mostly jammed to some music and walked along the shoreline, and I built the greatest sand castle ever built in the history of mankind!!... or tried. I built it where the waves could hit it because I wanted to see if it would die... it did.

Then we built a bonfire!!
It was the best ever!! And these drunk college guys showed up because they thought it was a party. But they quickly realized we weren't drinking and left. But they left us some of their wood. So that was good.

Then, at about 2 or 3, we headed back to the resort and me and Brooke took the best bubble bath ever!!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It was defenently one of our best ideas, except we kept overflowing the bathtub with bubbles :]
We stayed up all night and watched The Uninvited. I'm never watching another scary movie for the rest of my entire life. No joke.
In the morning, we all went to Rachel's house and slept until 5 in the afternoon. I've never felt like such a hobo in my entire life.
Then we went to church, and Brooke came to my house.
So there you have it. The glorious tale of our fabulous trip to Galveston :)
