Oaks Park, and a family party!

This week has been super great! My friend Anika took Ragen, Elle, and Anna (Elle, Anika and Anna are my friends from school) to Oaks Amusement Park to ride the rides! We all had a blast! First, we took a picture with the Portland Trail Blazer's mascot, (I have no clue why he was there) and then we couldn't wait to go on the rides! There is one ride that Elle and Anika went on, called the Screaming Eagle, where you sit strapped in a circle, spinning around, while swinging up and down, almost going upside-down! At first, I thought it was a piece of cake, but when I got closer to it, I chickened out and walked away. Then, I pushed myself to go on it, and I did! It turns out, it's my favorite ride in the whole park! Now, what I realize is that what's life if you never try!? I mean, it's not like I could have died or anything. If I like it, I like it, and if I totally hate it, well then...I totally hate it and I'll never go on it again.

Also this week, we had a family party that was super, totally, completely awesome! My cousins are still in town (yay!!!) so we decided that before they leave, we have to have a family party! Our other cousins that do live in Oregon offered to have us over because they have the river in their backyard, so we all decided on their house. We got there in our bathing suits, and immediately ran down to the river with their dog, Finnigan. (by the way, he is the cutest dog EVER!) The water was freezing at first, but then I got used to it. We swam around in our life jackets for a while, and then ran up to the hot tub to warm up. Surprise!!! Uncle Adrian came out, fueled up the boat, and took us all inter-tubing!!! When we got back, pizza was ready for us. We gobbled it up, and then ran down to the dock and jumped into the river again! It started getting late, so we headed home. It turned out to be one of the most fun days ever!!!
