Mexico: Part Two

      we spent the rest of the days at the pool and beach. When it was time to go back to Utah, I was ready. I really enjoyed the trip, i was just really anxious to get across the border and be able to drink CLEAN water, brush my teeth easily, (not using a water bottle for the water!) we got everything ready to go, and started to leave.Like 10 minutes later, the car started to get really bumpy, and my dad told us that something was wrong with the car! we pulled over to ask for a mechanic, and they led us to a small garage type lace. the guy came and told us it is fiesta time, or something like that (there lunch break)They said it would take a day to get it fixed, because he had a car in front of us. So we had to get a motel in a sketchy part of town

The mechanic doing math on a costumers car in front of us (price)

so we had to wait in this awesome place with an even better view! 

And of course we had the amazing homework we had to do!

The next day we were anxiously waiting for our car, when my mom got a text from my dad saying:
Get another hotel room, the cars still not fixed! So we had to wait another day, at least we got to eat at a yummy place with Delicious sandwiches.

finally we got our car fixed and got home,

 just in time for school on Tuesday (we missed Monday!)

Well... Until next Time!

Mexico: Part One

Last week we went to Mexico! My grandpa got us a hotel room at the Mayan palace for my grandmas 70th birthday! It was a super long trip. We drove for 10 hours to get to Phoenix, then in the morning we drove the rest of the way.

we had an amazing view!

We got there in the afternoon so we had time to go swimming,

 and (after lots of begging) went to the beach, and stayed there until dinner. for dinner we went out to this restaurant/bar and enjoyed the more carbonated pop and stared at the water glasses.

A band came over to our table and started to play some songs to us. After they play about 5 songs, they told us that it was $5 a song! After my dad paid him 5, and my uncle paid him $3 and we told him to tell us the price before you start playing. After that a balloon animal guy came over and made us all balloon animals.
My heart with a poodle on the bottom.

After that we went to the store and got pop, and 4 big bottles of purified water, then it was off to bed.

The next day was my grandmas birthday.we all wore shirts that on the front said you got to love it baby! and had a photo of her as a 4 year old. on the back it said mrs.jazz (because she is the Utah jazz’s number one fan! and it had the numbers 70 under it. 

I also got my hair braided that day. That had been a tradition I kept (except the last trip).
I didn’t remember how bad it hurt, mainly because it normally doesn’t hurt .however this time it really seemed to hurt. Mia was next in line to get her hair done, and Mia is a total soft head, so I had to act like it didn’t hurt. When it was Mia’s turn, she said it didn’t hurt at all, just took a very long time!

Later that evening, we went to eat at a place outside of the resort.  When we were eating we saw a few cockroaches on the floor, we ran around like crazy trying to get away from them, when finally my dad said we had to sit down and eat so we did. As I was eating, I saw that everyone was staring at me, and a started to feel something tickle on my head. I stood up and whacked something off my head, and to my surprise, there was a giant cockroach on the floor next to me, after that i was just done! I went down to the sand and saw lots of cockroaches poking out of the sand! I just went crazy. After what seemed like forever,we went to go continue the party.

And of course it wouldn’t be a Fiesta without a pinata!

I got hit in the head with it!

then we did the decades game, Mexican chocolate cake, and ice cream.

the next day we woke up early to go on a boat to bird’s island. My grandpa paid for all of us, and it was the highlight of the trip! We went knee high up in the water to go into a small fishing boat to take us to the double Decker boat.

 the boat was awesome! they had amazing fruit punch and almost no one went on the deck so they had lounge chairs and 3 or 4 chairs, so it had a lot of space.when we got there the first thing we did was go on a water taxi where the sea lions came up really close! then we went kayaking with 3 people and 2 kayak paddles. I went with my grandma and cousin. At first i was really scared, because these huge creatures would yawn and show there teeth, then go under our kayak! after a while I was okay with this, and just focused on the little pups swimming by us. And every time one went close to us I put my paddle in the air, because I was scared that if i paddled i would hit it in the head and it would not forgive me... After that I wanted to go snorkeling and swim with them, but they said it was time to go . My brother and I pleaded with the and they said we could jump in for 3 seconds, them come back out. it felt so good to jump in and the water was so warn that it didn’t even feel cold when I got out.

              When we got back, we spent the rest of the day (until night) in the warm beach.
Later that night, my uncle did karaoke, and sang it in a goofy voice!

The next day we did water aerobics, which was a ton of fun, especially splashing the instructor (all we were doing was doing the push the water enthusiastically!)  Mia also changed all our names, and wouldn’t  respond to any one unless you called her livvy, olivia, princess, flower, or seal. ( her full name was olivia princess flower seal. she changed my name to carly Rae seal and griffins name to peanut gallery seal, my dads name to eagle prince seal, my mom to lucy and my grampas name to joe joe. oh and we ordered yummy nachos during (: happy hour! :)

The next day we went to the beach until dinner, when we went to this restaurant  with a bunch of stray dogs and got bracelets.

Oh, and I wore my swim shirt every day, so I got an amazing shirt tan line

To be Continued...

Hey! Sorry it’s been so long, I really thought I was just done with this blog, when something interesting finally happened in my life!
 I missed the last day of school to go on TOUR TO SAN FRANCISCO!!! I had so much fun, and I got to do a lot of fun stuff!

I had to wake up at 4:30 AM to be at the airport by 5:00!

After a long (1 hour) flight, We got to eat at Westfield San Francisco Centre. We all got to spend $10 on food. They had many choices, but I felt like trying something new. So I ate at Chipotle ( They have HUGE and THICK burritos, tacos, and salads) I got the burrito bowl 6.55 and a small soda 1.75 With Tax it was 9.01, so I ended up with .99 to spend on whatever! After that we went on our awesome tour bus to Justin Herman Plaza to set up for a performance. ( I was in charge of setting up the speakers) After  a rockin’ performance, we went to go sight see at the golden gate bridge.

After that we went to check in at our hotel in Oakland (We stayed at the Days Hotel)
then we went to Rossmoor Walnut Creek, which is some sort of Retirement place. We ate  subway sandwiches and cookies. Then preformed (After setting up, speakers became my permanent job)  Then
 went to the hotel, and me, my roommate, and two other friends watched river monsters and some other show I cant remember the name of.

Day 2 
We ate breakfast at the hotel, Then went to the Exploratorium (We crossed the bay bridge many times during this tour by the way!)

After that we went to... GHIRADELLI SQUARE!!!  We did a performance, then we got to spend $10 at Ghiradelli Square. We ate at the pub. I got BBQ chicken.

We then got 2 hours of free time, and I got...

A Ghiradelli Chocolate covered cone, and a Ghiradelli chocolate scoop ice cream.

I Spent a lot of money!

Then we went to Pier 39! We had a HUGE Audience! There were tons of tourists and everything and everyone! Everyone loved he “Pants on the ground’ Street dance! That was defiantly our best performance. We got to spend $10 for dinner again. I ate at Jonny Rockets

We also got yummy mini doughnuts!

We even went shopping in a place called “Only in San francisco”  I got a magnet bookmark with a picture of a sea lion, and 4 mini magnets of different places in san fran.   And we went to a different shop and got cute black shorts/short sweats that say, city by the bay San Francisco and have an out line of the golden gate bridge!  Then we went back to the hotel, same routine.

Day 3
We woke up, ate breakfast in the hotel, then went to SIX FLAGS!!! When we got there we did a performance, then went on rides, so I didn’t take my camera. There rides were so much fun and much better than Lagoon, and a lot scarier!
For lunch I had a Huge corn dog, and some dippin’ dots. Then went to the hotel, had pizza and a cold pool party. It was so cold and the water wasn’t heated so I didn’t want to get in so I got some of my friends to come over in my hotel room and watch harry potter 7 part 2 (The only good show on at the time) and during commercials we had to explain to one girl (Mckenna) The whole story of harry potter!

Day 4
We woke up, ate breakfast at hotel, then Kim, our main teacher read us a Poem about every thing that happened during tour. It was really fun, funny, and I wish I recorded it! Then we went to the jelly belly factory. We performed there, then got a tour. They game us sports beans and a crayon full of one flavored jelly beans.

All the pictures are made of jelly beans! (Including the duck)

We ate there, I got a bean shaped burger and chips.

After That we went to the airport, I had dinner at Chiles 2 (@ the airport)
Then took off. I got home At around 10:00!
