My 17th Birthday


   I cannot believe I turned 17 earlier this week!!  Maybe it's because I sure don't act like a seventeen year old! :)  But my day was very blessed, special, and fun!!  We planned to go to a waterpark, but it was almost cancelled because of the sleet - we've been having crazy weather lately!  But Daddy braved the slippery roads anyways, and we made it safe and sound!
Our day at the waterpark was so enjoyable!!  And it wasn't as busy as we feared, because of spring break!  My favorite parts were the wave pool and family raft ride - the scariest slide, of course! :)  I also tried the surfing simulator (but I didn't stand on the board!  I just layedon my stomach).  And I made a flop of it almost as bad as I feared!! :D  As soon as I was down on the wave, my board turned sideways and I was off before I could enjoy the ride!  I didn't try again, but it wasn't so bad that I wouldn't do it next time.
Going down smoothly....

      ....and being pushed back up not so smoothly.

After being drenched and shriveled to a little prune we went to Pizza Hut with my Grandma, Aunt, and cousin.  Then we went to my house for "cake" - Buster Bars from DQ. :D 


I also received some really special gifts: money - probably will be spent on books or at Ladies Emporium. :D  A scarf (which I am wearing as I type this) and some pretty scrapbooking paper, a fun book on the history of aprons, a recipe book, and two aprons - the one on the right my Grandma remembers my great-grandma working on!!  Quite a keep sake!!

Thank you for reading!  And thank you for all the wonderful 'Happy Birthdays'!!

Oh, I just sent your e-mail, and then I saw your post. :) It looks like a fun time! I'm glad you (well, your mom I guess) took so many photos. And it looks like you got some nice gifts. Well, I'm glad now that I didn't get you an apron - I saw some and sort of thought about it. :)

Again, happy birthday!
