A warning and some updates

So, bad news, then the good news.

I know most of you (my followers and readers) are on Picasa, so I want to warn you: there is a creeper going around our pages and commenting inappropriately named "Peter (insert cuss word here)". He says inappropriate things and has inappropriate photos on his page. Please block him and delete his comments when you can. This might be the most important thing that you do. I know you hear about Internet stalkers and everyone says, "It might happen to you!" but you always say, "Psh, it won't happen to me." Well, if we don't get this guy off Picasa, it might be you. So please, let's everyone work together to get this guy out of our lives. He doesn't deserve the privilege of the Internet.

Now, on a happier note.

I GOT TO SEE THE FINALE OF HARRY POTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was so epic. I got to see it with CC on Monday at the AMC. It was a total surprise, and we were so hyped! We had a great time together. We were all crying through the movie, and this one lady turned around and told us to shut up. The NERVE! Although I must say, my sister was whispering random things that didn't need to be said. But STILL! She even had her feet up on the seat in front of her. Ugh.

Speaking of rude people, we went to a water park today, and these two boys cut in front of my cousin, my sister, and I. They then proceeded to tell us that it wasn't technically cutting. Then, a whole group of boys came up and joined them! UGH!!!!

Gosh, sorry for all the complaining, but it must be rude people day.

Oh, and I also got some new AG stuff! Well, it's handmade clothes for AG, not technically AG. I got some cute daisy print PJs, jean shorts, blue tennis shoes, and an adorable apron. I'll try to get some pics of Emily in them and post them.

I don't know what we're doing tomorrow, but I'll update as soon as I can!

Love, Lena

Wow, I feel really bad right now. I haven't blogged in forever. I have an excuse, though. We've been really busy visiting friends and family.

I have some major news for you all! I GOT A NEW DOLL!!!!!!!

Psych! Not really.the real major news is that I got both of the Britt Nicole CDs! Isn't that great!? I also designed an outfit for AG dolls and I'm going to start making it today out of the fabric I bought last week.
I also saw one of my friends that I haven't seen in two an a half years. It's crazy.

I'll try to update more often!

4th of July

Hey all! Here are some updates of what we've been doing the last couple of days.

So, on the 4th my grandparents came to the hotel and we cooked burgers, sausages, and corn on the cob. I'm telling you, you can't get good corn on the cob better anywhere than Indiana! My mom also made pink lemonade. After eating, we put on suits and swam in the hotel pool for a while. After swimming, we got dressed up and went out for dinner at PF Changs. Then we all piled in the car and drove downtown to see the fireworks. While we were in the car, my grandmother asked my dad, 'Do you know where we're going?' My dad said, 'No, but I can find out!' I think it was probably funnier in the moment. We stopped in a parking lot near my dad's old work with a bunch of other people. Then the fireworks went off! Oh, how I missed those fireworks!

Tuesday evening, my mom and I went to the mall to get new clothes, because I've grown 7 inches since last summer! I got a bunch of stuff from Aeropostale.

Yesterday we went to Bisa's house with my cousins and my grandparents to go swimming. Bisa is the grandmother of my uncle, and she is really nice!

Today we are going to a BBQ with friends of my mom's. We'll have to see how that goes!

See you soon,

Our trip so far

So, here is an overview of our trip so far:

Sunday: We left Europe and arrived in Atlanta in the evening. We went swimming and ate dinner at the hotel. Then there was this HUGE storm knocking down tables and everything. We don't get storms like that where I live!
Monday: We went back to the airport and left for St. Thomas. When we got there, we went swimming (again).

Our first view of St. Thomas
Tuesday: We just went between the beach and the pool all day. It was a ton of fun!

Wednesday: We took a boating/fishing trip! I felt a little sick on the trip, and I don't know why. I've always done really well on boats! I fell asleep for a while. We caught several barracudas, but nothing edible. Then we went near the airport and we caught a little Yellowtail Snapper! The captain said, "You'll be set for dinner if you can catch 2 or 3 more of those!" We didn't catch anything else, but the captain knew of one more place. Then my dad felt a big tug on his line, and we caught a huge 20 pound Red Snapper! We ate it for dinner that night, and it was REALLY good.

Our Red Snapper
Thursday: We took the ferry into town, to Charlotte Amalie. There I got a new bathing suit and a dress, because it's tax free on the island and I've grown a TON since last summer! When I mean a ton, I mean 7 inches! It's crazy!

Friday: Friday I met a girl on the beach named Rachel, and she helped me overcome my fear of the water! I've always been a little afraid of getting knocked over by the waves, and that happened several times that day! Now I feel more comfortable swimming in the ocean.

Saturday: Rachel was there again, but only for a few hours. She and her brother had bought boogie-boards on the trip but they couldn't bring them home on the plane that afternoon. They were really nice, and gave them to us! I boogie-boarded all day, and by the end of the day I felt like I was still rocking from the waves! It was a little dizzying.

My sister and I boogie-boarding (I'm on the left)
Sunday: We packed all morning and left that afternoon. We were lucky and caught an earlier flight to Indiana! Unfortunately, our bags couldn't make it on the early flight, so we had no clothes last night! It was a little weird.

This morning both my parents left to go to the airport to pick up our bags, so we will get clean clothes. Now I'm just awaiting plans! We're probably going to spend the day with my grandparents.

I'm still alive!

Hi guys! I'm alive and well and we are leaving tomorrow! I don't have much time, so I'll try to be brief.

We arrived in St. Thomas Monday afternoon, and ever since then we have been swimming in the ocean, playing on the beach, and hanging out at the pool. The weather has been lovely: not too hot, but not too cold either. Just right! This one picture pretty much sums up our whole visit:

I would add more photos, but my dad's stinking computer will only let me add one photo at a time and it takes forever, so I'll try adding them to my Picasa.

I have TONS of sand in my hair, and my dad says it'll probably take about 3 days for it to all come out. Ick. I also feel like I'm swaying all the time because I've been in the ocean waves for so long. It's a little maddening!!!

I promise to post as soon as I can.

Love, Lena
