this morning blake woke up at about 5:00 and made his mom go down to the cars so he could get his toys out to play with. i fell back asleep til about 7:00 and then i got in the shower and got ready. then darric got in the shower and we had to wait around for everyone else to finish getting ready and for blake to go swim for awhile and then take a 30 minute shower, don't ask me why. when we were all finally done, we went to denny's. i found it in the yellow pages because that sounded really good. that's where we went. we had to get two tables when we got there because our group was too big. i got the french slam. i have been wanting that for a very long time and now i finally get it. it was so very good. i ate all of it, except the fatty sausage links. when we were all done eating we went back to the motel and dan just ran upstairs to find out where we were supposed to go i guess, i don't know.
we followed them just a few minutes away to the KOA campground. i thought it was going to be a place with a bunch of dirt that was going to get all over us. it was a really nice place. it had grass in between each parking place and dan got in trouble by one of the guys that worked there because he was parked on the grass. the only people that were there were darric's grandparents and his aunt judy and uncle steve and their son shawn who was a little strange. and two of darric's younger cousins samantha and michael.
we sat around for a little bit and talked. then me and darric drove over to this convenience store and just got drinks and a little snack. then we drove around for a little while while darric had his snack. when we got back we decided we wanted to go to the mall because we were going to see if they had pink nike jordans. it was going to be me, darric and jessica and then darric asked daneane if she wanted to come and she asked shawn. they both said yes. shawn is about the same age as daneane. we had to take the saturn (dan and jude's car) so all of us would fit.
it was pretty easy for us to find the mall but getting back was more confusing. we were at the mall for a couple hours or so. went into a few stores. we didn't find any pink jordans. we spent the most time in sam goody's and hallmark. i bought a tape single and darric got a couple tapes. then in hallmark he had to find his dad a different card that was better than the one i had already bought. oh well, it's his dad. the card he picked was some gushy card that he could write a retarded message in it. we left shortly after that. darric was going to let me buy some sandals from kinneys but i decided i didn't need them that bad so i didn't get them.
on the way back darric went down a different road and none of us were really sure where we were at but we ended up right where we were supposed to. it was pretty funny. darric acted like he knew where he was at the whole time, but he didn't. when we got back to the campground me and darric were a little hungry so we had a sandwich. it was pretty good. soon after that his uncle ted and aunt marilyn, their daughter crystal and their little fluffy rat dog arrived. i thought crystal was a younger girl because of the way she looked but she's about 23 years old. me, darric, jessica, dan, judeane and his uncle ted all went over to play horseshoes. actually they all played and me and jessica just sat and watched. dan and judeane kicked butt every game. i felt bad for my poor little honey that lost.
after darric played about 101 games trying to beat his dad, i had a try. i haven't thrown a horse shoe since i was younger and i think i did pretty good. darric was too worn out to play. actually i think he was scared he would lose to me. we went back over to where everyone was at and we had barbecue beef sandwiches. they were ok. they had been sitting.
