So here's the vacation to California according to Kate:
The plane ride there was long and for the most part boring. They did show Finding Nemo though, so that was a plus. We got there and exchanged presents (Carolyn got me a Celtic knot ring and the Pippin soundtrack and Joanna made really cool SSP shirts for all of us. I got them Harry Potter scarves, Mickey and Minnie pants and burned CDs.) and then got a tour of the house and grounds. Then it was Peter Pan time. Wow, Jeremy Sumpter. So hot yet so fourteen.
Next day was bum around day since we had jet lag and all. We watched a lot of Degrassi (Joanna discovered her love for both the show and Jake Epstein) and then headed off to In-n-Out (Great food, hot guys).
Sunday we were originally going to go to the zoo, but ended up at Sea World instead. The dolphins were cool and we got to pet one. We also found this rather attractive boy we decided to name Joshua Tristan Perche because we are sad, sad people. Joanna was more smitten than the me or Carolyn and was all too excited when we ran into him a few times. We also took really cool postcard pictures in this photo booth.
We saw Peter Pan again the next day because once is certainly not enough. That day Joanna broke the house and it flooded. We had to spend the night at the Temporary Living Quarters (We went to their vending machines quite a bit). There was a small fight about sleeping arrangements and we ended up all sleeping in the same bed because no one wanted to be by themselves.
The next morning Carolyn's mommy and brother, Andrew, went with us to IHOP for breakfast/lunch. Then we went back the TLC and organized Carolyn's CD collection. Andrew came back to pick us up and we went with him and his friend, Bailey, to the beach. It was so pretty. We played this Harry Potter alphabet game. We stayed at the Living Quarters again.
New Year's Eve was spent at the zoo with Andrew and Bailey. Animals aren't really my thing, but a lot of them were really cute. I loved the otters. We were able to go back to Carolyn's house and had some Chinese food. Joanna and Carolyn decided they should play dress up and I was perfectly content in my duckie pants. We watched some Family Guy and then the ball drop.
Then came my favorite part of the trip--Disneyland! We went on the Peter Pan ride first, which made me very happy. Joanna listed all the rides we went on, which I should have done because now I can't really remember. I got Sam's Christmas present and myself this really cool shirt. We spent a really long time waiting for Splash Mountain, but we used our perverted, yet amusing wit for entertainment. We really annoyed the guys behind us too. But that's okay because one of them had on a really bad hat. We got to stay at the Disneyland Hotel, which had this awesome Tinker Bell boarder.
Next day was spent at California Adventure (after we went to Disneyland again for the Haunted Mansion and to buy Eileen and Estelle's presents). It was rainy, so we decided the first thing we should do it go on a water ride that soaked us. Freaking geniuses, we are. I went on my first real roller coaster, which was great. We left early because we were wet and disgruntled.
On our last full day we went shopping. I got a baby Animal (Muppet Babies) shirt, two Billabong shirts, new sneakers and a watch with three straps. There was this really cool guy at the last store, Jon. I miss him. Anyway, that night we packed, streaked Joanna's hair (that was interesting), watched more Degrassi and 2Gether. We were going to stay up all night, but that didn't work out too well.
Then it was time to go home. I slept through most of the plane ride and got a yummy cake when I got home. I didn't go to school today because I was tired and sick. I'm still sick. It's not fun. My mom said I could stay home tomorrow as well, but I don't know.
