Back from Edmonton!

Im back from Edmonton! It was super fun. Melissa and I stayed with my cousin Janice, who is amazing by the way. We watched this video of saturday night live. The funniest thing I have ever seen.
umm.. some highlights.

Tubing - we went tubing on the lake with my uncle. Melissa kept flipping off the tube (halarious). She was getting super cocky doing the YMCA and stuff so we tried to flip her off. I held on tight as to not allow them a victory. However, at one point I wanted to fall off so I stretch back as to slip off. I did slip off, but somehow continued skimming on top of the water without the tube. IT WAS NUTS!
Campfire - we had two campfires while we were there. I was sooo happy. Melissa decided to eat marshmellows till she was sick the second time.

Movies/Big Brother - Almost everynight Melissa, Jan, and I would watch movies. We saw The Ugly Truth, with was really funny. We also got hooked on Big Brother (hot Jeff)
Shopping - we went to many stores, which was fun. Melissa bought 9 books total. haha including one called Melissa. It sounds like her life story too. haha. I bought my second book in the Sword of Truth series, and a new planner for this year.

Jan - the biggest highlight of going to edmonton was seeing Jan. Thank you for letting us stay with you we had so much fun.

There is alot more, but I dont feel like typing it all.

And some Lowlights...

Dairy Queen - the blizzards they gave us, did not meet the standard commercial thickness. They were like soup. So I put it in the freezer for a whole day and still it was runny. that was a waste of 4 dollars.

Unhelpful Helpful People - This lady was trying to help us when we were lost, but she took 9 million years to write the directions for us. No joke. She tried to draw us a map that made no sense at all. Her written directions were noo better.

Insanely Hot Sun - On the way back the sun was sooo hot. We were beyond sweaty by the time we got home. It was like a rainforest in the car.

Overall it was a really fun trip.

Here is some drawings/watercolour I did recently.

sponsored child

A few months ago I decided to sponsor a child. I got this super cute romanian boy whos about 7. Last week he sent me a letter in the mail. It was so cute. He also had a picture to go with it. So I decided to write him back and draw him a picture of a lion. Hes a boy im sure he would like that more than some disney princess hhaha.

These next drawings are ones I did last week, I think. I cant remember.

I came across these pictures that I did a while ago at work. Just thought I would put them up. I get bored at work alot, so I draw.

12 more days till edmonton! Im super excited! I get to see a bunch of my relatives, and Melissas.

I have about 2 and a half hours till I leave for work, ARG! I dont want to work today. Hopefully Im working with someone good. That would make it less boring. For the past I dont know how many shifts, I have been working with my Manager. Not that I dont like her, I do, but I always have to be doing something. haha. Whatever, I shouldnt complain. At least I have work, right?
Today I bought two books online. Volume one and two of the Drawn to Life: 20 Golden Years of Disney Master Classes. It is filled with notes, drawings and lectures from Walt Stanchfield. An amazing Disney Animator. I am super excited but have to wait a while for it to come. Oh well.
