art & Father's day

I'm still here! My grandmother came up on Friday, so we have been showing her some sights of the city! Yesterday, we went to a awesome, huge, ginormous art museum. It was so cool! We spent about 3-4 hours looking at the art, and we didn't even see all of it! We took some funny pictures by the modern art (cameras were allowed) and enjoyed everything. I especially liked the works of Claude Monet. The modern art was wack-o! There was one especially weird piece of modern art-- all it was was a white canvas with white strokes and a steel picture frame. I didn't really think of it as art... It even had information up about it. At first, I guessed they had just not put the piece up yet, but I guess not. Strange... I was amazed at some of the ancient pieces that they had! Some dated back to B.C! They did not even have glass or anything over them.I was tempted to touch it just for the record so that I could say I touched a piece of history, but... I used self control and restrained.:)

SUNDAY-- was Father's day! My dad never asks for anything but candy & juice, so we got him a basket filled with what else but candy, juice and fruit (watermelon, strawberries, blueberries) and I got him some pineapple cocanut Haagen Daz. He is always easy to shop for! Anything that's sweet and edible will do for him.:) Happy (late) Father's day, dad, I love you!

Anyways, we are leaving. I have so much more to post about, but this will have to do for now!

Headache.. and PRAISE

On Monday, I was playing tennis with my mom, when I started to get blurry vision. I went inside, and soon after my fingers began numb and my head started hurting really bad. I took some ibuprofen, and about 3-4 hours later, it felt mostly better. The next day I felt all the way better, and we went to walk around the city. We went in Sak's 5th avenue, Brooke's brothers, and Macy's. It was fun, but the next morning, I woke up with a headache. I finally went to the doctor and they told us to go to the children's hospital emergency room to get a CT scan. So, we waited for forever and a day, but I got the scan. It turned out good! Praise God! But it turns out I was having "complicated migraine's," which means that it's a migraine, except it has to do with numbness and blurry vision. I still have to get a MRI just to make sure, but I am soo relieveved. Thank God! The doc told us to carry motrin or ibroprofun, and drink plenty of water wherever we go. That's what we've been doing. I am very thankful.

touring the city

Saturday, we had a touring-the-city day. It was a blast! We went on this tour called "just ducky." It's a sort of bus that goes on land, and in the water! It's called a duck. HOW COOL IS THAT?! It was SO much fun! It's neat to see the view of the city from being on the water...

And-- the sun came out! Hopefully, some more good days at the pool. Also, we have attempted to play tennis. I LIKE IT! I don't like sports much, but I like this. Who would have guessed?

Hopefully, we will go check out the city some more today... Well, I'm off! Hope you have a dazzling- day! :0

I am posting at the library. My, o my, this place is big! It is soo different from back home. I wish I could tell you where it is, but for privacy reasons, I won't. I'll just say that it is up north. I'm sure that that helps a lot. (not!:)

Our apartment is fairly nice. But It is as small as I'll get out, and all 3 of us have to share a room. Other than that, it's nice because it has a pool, and tennis courts.

One day, the sun came out for a little while and we got to go swimming. But other than that, it has been cloudy and overcast for 3-4 days. We haven't had a great pool day yet.

Yesterday, my dad got us a membership to a place called "the club 4 life." It's a huge work-out facility with everything to do! So that's a good thing to do on a cloudy, depressing day. And,I heard there is a cheesecake factory here, so I'm hoping to go try it out. :)

Well I need to go. I'll update when I can.


I want to go see Night at the Museum 2.

share-a-song-sundays, and farewell! (for now!)

Well, we are leaving tomorrow to go up north for about a month and a half. It's not farewell forever, but we probably won't have Internet access for a while, so don't cry. I'll be back in July. Don't stop following me either, I'm still here!:) I hope everyone has a great summer, and I will update when I can. Our apartment has a swimming pool, so I'm gonna get a good TAN! *Yay*And get some good shopping in!:)
Sorry, I didn't get to do share-a-song Sunday's last week, so here's a song we have been singing at church.

I enjoy reading every comment, when I get them. So keep them going while I'm gone~!
Ta-ta for now... Again, hope you have a wonderful summer, and I'll be be back soon!

of Orange Cream Sicles

I have an urge for a orange cream sicle. They are so GOOD! I could eat a whole box of them. My guilty pleasure. Is there any kind of desert that you get a sudden urge for? I'm sure there is.:) I hope the ice cream man comes by soon.Last time, they were OUT of orange cream sicles, so I had to get a strawberry shortcake popsicle instead. What a shame...
