What is life size, red, and ... AWESOME!?!?!?!?

  If you have seen  the pics you can guess what the answer is to the title (By the way the answer is a bright red Volvo entirely made by Legos.) .

A Day of Bumps and Bruises

   Yesterday I got so many injuries that now I can't count them all!  My horrible luck started when I hit my knee on the side of my bed.  Next, I limped all the way to the soccer game.  Then just when I thought it was gone, a player from the opposite team came up and nailed me right in the side of my dominant foot (not to mention that every kid on my soccer team was on the ground at one point  or another in the game). It hurt so bad that I was partially out of the game.  But coach put me back in the game even though it still hurt like mad.  After that, I found a remedy for a sore foot; going to friend's house and then going to CAMEEZ (frozen yogurt & coffee) with that friend.
   Guess what?  Later in the evening, I had an epic bike crash.  It happened when I tried to ride up the curb.  I hit my knee again, my wrist, my elbow and my head (on both sides).  My glasses cut the flesh above my left eyebrow.  Mom even thought that I might need stitches.  Some ladies came over to see what happened to me.  I walked my bike half way to my house then coasted the rest of the way.  To end my day of injuries I slipped on the slippery hardwood floors in our house and found another scratch on my leg while I was in an ice cold shower.  The day couldn't get worse, or could it?

Soccer Dog

    Sorry I haven't blogged in quite a while. I've been playing, running, and I have to go to school. Anyways that is NOT what this article is about. It's about a super cool dog and a super cool me. We got to the park and got off our bikes and did what you do at a park: swing, climb, and slide. Then I got bored and started to kick my soccer ball around. All of a sudden a gray dog came bounding toward the ball. It's owner said "kick it hard and she will play with you." After that we were running a lot and a lot. Then she got a little more tired. Then a whole lot tired.  And after 30 minutes she stopped completely. After all that running she and I had to go home. It made my afternoon super cool.

 I am about to kick the ball.

A Biking Adventure

   Our cousins and us (me and my family) went on a bike ride almost to Breckenridge.  For the most part it was up and down, up and down. Towards the middle of the ride Kate fell.  And I mean badly!  From then on it was
up and down, up and down again.

    When we got back we had lunch at THE BUTTERHORN.  I had so many choices I didn't like.  My dad had to give me ... The Talk!!!  After I got my wits back we went back into the restaurant and ordered our food. ( Which was black bean soup, chips, and a  peanut butter & jelly sandwich.)

     After that we biked home to couches instead of bicycle seats and carpets instead of sidewalks.

 Snacks galore
 All of us
