Las Vegas

Hey, right now I'm in Las Vegas with a few friends from Las Vegas. We went swimming yesterday and plan on going again today. Its kinda weird because I normally don't like swimming, but its nice when its this hot and my friend has a pool in her backyard. My friend Brittani is sooo tan from just two days in the pool. It makes me kinda jealous. :)
I got a cell phone, which is soo cool!!! It has limited minutes and no texting by my parents orders, but I still have a phone! It a really nice silver flip phone. The only thing I don't like is that we have at&t when all my friends have verison. If I had verison I could call them for free which would be so awesome!!!!!! But something is better than nothing. I am planning on getting a ton of pictures and putting some on here. Later!

EFY here I come!!

Its crazy how time passes when your having fun. EFY is less than a month away! I still have a lot to do so it feels weird that its so close. I'm wanting to get my hair cut before I go. My hair is kinda damaged so I would like to get the dead and split ends cut off before it gets any worse. And I need some jean capris so I actually have something to wear at EFY. I have lots of shorts (all equall or lower than my knees of course) but I don't think I can wear them to EFY. i have to check that, but I would still like to have a pair of capris I can wear with everything. And I am thinking about getting an iPod for the plane ride. And other things too. :) We had Grandma and Grandpa Weber stop by and say hi on there way to Canada. It was really nice to see them. Here are some pictures from when we went boating with Craig's family. The one of Ty in a blanket was last week. We were playing chase with a different name (ghost) and he was the "ghost". It was so cute I couldn't resist taking a picture and putting it on here.

Fourth of July

I love the 4th. Its so fun to stay up late and watch fireworks. This year my mom and our neighbor got together a neighborhood flag raising ceremony. Afterwards all the kids got together and made a movie. So far we've made four since our family moved here. I'm hoping to put some of them on here. Eventually. Then we went and saw WALL-E. I found it really cute. Some of the things in the ending credits didn't really add up though. Like where did all the fish and other plants come from?? They had just one seedling. I won't say any more I don't want to ruin it for anyone who's planning on seeing it. We had a barbecue with some of our family friends and did fireworks. Me and my friends and Annica watched 1/2 of Spiderman 2 while we waited for it to get dark enough. I love that movie. It was a really nice day all arround. I'm having a really nice summer. It is kinda stuffy in our house without ac, but I manage by living in the basement. Its like 10 degrees cooler down there.
I'm also unpaitiently waiting for the fourth book in a really good book series. Its called Breaking Dawn and comes out Aug. 2. I was going to preorder it but I'm going to be at EFY when it comes out. So I decieded to just borrow my friends copy and buy my own when the price goes down. In like two years.
I realized my birthday is about a month away on the fourth and I was shocked. It feels weird to realize I'll be 15. And even more weird that I haven't been thinking about it for months. Normally I obsess over it and have it all planned by the begining of July. Its definatly a change. My wishlist hasn't changed much though. Books and clothes and stuff for my room.
Except this year I am also asking for something else, just not for my birthday. Jenna and I are both wanting to get a Leopard Gecko. I've always liked animals. Not just dogs and cats but more exotic animals like falcons and geckos. Jenna and I are currently raising up money to buy all the supplies and Gecko while mom and dad decide if we can get one. I'm really not sure if they'll let us get one. Mom doesn't like them and doesn't want a smell (even though with the right cage bedding and proper care they don't smell). And I think they don't think we can take care of it on a regular basis. In the past I wasn't very good about taking care of the cat. I think the main reason for that was that my dad would always try to be nice and feed him for me. But then I couldn't get into the habit of it . This time it will be just me taking care of it (Jenna wants to help a little bit) and Jenna and I both earning money. I don't know, we'll just have to wait and see.
