I visited Alvarado Texas last week because: A) Why not? B) I wanted to. C) To meet my girlfriends hilariously-fantastic family. D) To have a Texas-size load of fun, duh.
The consequences of my visit have been: A) Lots of fun. B) More fun. C) My stomach tearing because of over-eating. D) Sneezing.
I left last Wednesday to venture into the smoldering humidity that is Texas, and returned last night. In the time span of ten days I had a crazy amount of fun and was able to meet many lovely, funny people. I have gone to a ballet recital, watched a double feature movie at a legit Drive-In Theater, eaten a lot of cotton candy, tamed a giant dinosaur, blown many things up with dry ice bombs, played some Jenga, Spyro, and a little Kings Cup with family, had a silly string fight in the living room, lit stuff on fire with gasoline, played many board games, watched a few movies, went trap shooting with shotguns, ate way too much food, set fireworks off into the sky, and shot fireworks at each other.
I brought home a lot pictures, many different characteristics, but mostly a ton of memories. I had the most fantastic time and I definitely hope to see them again soon.
