Life Updates

Hey everyone,

Surprisingly, I'm still alive. I've been caught up a lot in my summer activities so I haven't paid much attention at all to this blog. But now, I'm super determined to post on it! 

So anyways, I think the most interesting things that have been happening to me aren't really that interesting. Lucky Harper (my friend) got to go to Rome and Tuscany at the beginning of the summer. But I'm also lucky! I think I might be going on a little vacation to an island up north for a week. I would have to take a ferry to get to the island, so there can't be any cars on the island. Most people use bikes for transportation! How cool is that? Anyway, I'm very excited. Can't wait to share it with you all! <3

Much love,

Walking the Dogs

Hello everyone!

Spring has finally started to show itself here. I woke up bright and early this morning to the melodic sound of birds chirping. Once I ate breakfast I decided that I had to go outside. My dog Pepper needed his morning walk, so I decided to take all of the dogs out for a nice long walk.
We have a lot of dogs in the house. Sometimes they can be difficult to tame, but I always have a great time playing with them and taking them on walks. We have four dogs altogether. 

The first one is Pepper, who is my dog. He is so adorable and has the most vibrant blue eyes. He's really obedient but can be mischievous sometimes.

This is Anna's dog Sugar. Sugar is so sweet (no pun intended!). She is so soft and is really playful. 

Harper's dog is named Meatloaf. He is the cutest bulldog I have ever seen, even though he's really mischievous. He is always full of energy and is very vibrant. 

The last dog we have is Sprocket who is Nicki's dog. He is one of the most faithful dogs I've ever met. He is really good at sensing Nicki's emotions because he used to be a service dog. 

I had a lot of fun outside in the nice spring weather with all of the dogs. It was great exercise for me and for the dogs. I think I might have to go out on another walk with the dogs again sometime soon. 

Do you have any pets? If you do, do you like to go out on walks with them?

That's all for now!

PS. My best friend may have to take over my blog in the upcoming weeks. She's going on a vacation and we just might have to share the pictures with you!

Ice Castles!

Hello everyone!

I took a trip up north this week. The first day (well, more like night) we went to some incredible ice castles. It was so so so cold out! I was glad I had my snowsuit and my mittens.

The ice structures were all lit up with flashing lights. It looked like a fairyland. I couldn't wait to get right in and explore!

The icicles were so huge- at times, I was afraid they were going to fall right on me. They looked like stalactites or stalagmites in a cave.
And they even had lights illuminating the whole thing! This light changed from red to pink to blue and then all over again. They were also playing loud music from Frozen. It made me feel like I was Elsa in her ice castle.

It was very difficult to get pictures without a flash because it was so dark, so the only pictures that actually came out of me were with the flash. 

I was so cold sitting here! I could feel my toes freezing right off along with my fingers.
Here is a photo we managed to get without a flash. I look so purple because of the light!

Overall, it was one of the coolest (no pun intended) places I have ever been. Have you ever been to ice castles? Did you go on a fun vacation recently?

Love, Emily

Hooray! It's a Snow Day!

I'm so happy that today was a snow day! I got to stay home from school all day long. At first in the morning the snow had turned into freezing rain, but it quickly changed right back into snow in the afternoon.
I spent a lot of time out in the snow. Our whole backyard was covered in snow piles as tall as me!

It's unfortunate that the freezing rain started because the snow was covered in a pretty thick layer of ice so I couldn't make any snow creatures this time.

Mostly I just sat in the snow for a while and enjoyed the fresh air while I could. Soon I got pretty cold though I was bundled up in my snow gear.

So I headed inside and put on the warmest sweatshirt I could find and made myself a nice big mug of hot chocolate with a lot of whipped cream on top.

That's pretty much how my day went! It was a lot of fun. How was your Monday? Did you have a snow day?

Love, Emily.
