I had art camp this week. My class was about making a board game. My board game is a battle in medieval times. It is the villagers -vs- the knights. You battle with dice when you come across another player. And you try to get to the other side of the board. It is a two person game, although I made a lot of pieces out of a play dogh like thing. And I even made my own dice. But I also have dice from the store too. All the buildings on my game are 4-D. I cannot wait to play my game. I think everyone will really like it. Art camp was really fun. I like art. I am going to do another camp this summer about making 3-D rockets.

Yesterday, I went to the water park with my friend AB and JJ. They had a high powered water gun mounted on the top of the waterpark playground area and I sprayed everyone. One person got mad and came up to punch me, but I sprayed them again. I also went on the rides. The lazy river was very fun too. While we were there, we got dippin dots, which is one of my favorite snacks. The water park is really fun.
Billy and JJ went a little dormant this spring due to all our activities! But, it is now summer so expect to hear a lot out of the boys. To catch up from out last post through to now, a few highlights...

JJ's birthday celebration with his friends was a lot of fun. Billy and JJ planned the whole party. Mostly, they sat in the basement and played minecraft on their devices. But, we did a few fun games, like tackle the creeper and Steve tag. Some highlights: A Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cake Steve Tag Tackle the Creeper Minecraft Battle!
JJ and Minnie are huge Dr. Seuss Fans. IT has been our tradition to read all of his books during the month of March and rank them in order. Here is how we do it: Read a book and then put it in order based on the previous books we have read. If we cannot agree on the placement, Billy serves as the tie breaker. Our top 10 Dr. Suess books for the year: 10) Scrambled Eggs Super 9) Horton Hears a Who 8) Thidwick the Big Hearted Moose 7) The Butter Battle Book 6) McElligots Pool 5) The Bippolo Seeds and other stories 4) Kings Stilts 3) Sneetches and Other Stories 2) How the Grinch Stole Christmas 1) Cat's Quizzer This list has changed quite a lot from 2012....wonder how we will feel in 2014?
Billy and JJ spent Spring Break in Ohio.....a few days on Smalley's Ranch, and a few days in Ohio with Mom Mom and Pa. Here they are with one of their most favorite people in the whole world, Smalley....owner and proprietor of Smalley's Ranch. The best place two boys could every imagine. Here are some highlights of their trip: ***The Works - A interactive museum where they got to take apart computers and drive car simulators. *** Whit's - in G-Ville. The best ice cream place ever. *** The Outdoor Store - A good place for preppers! ***Smalley's Archery Class - Because it is good preparation for doomsday, and a student in the class wanted to take a picture with them, which made Billy and JJ feel like celebrities! ***The bonfires at the Ranch - who doesn't like a bonfire? *** The fireworks at the Ranch, which only resulted in a flesh wound and one trip to the doctor! *** Hunting with Smalley - Billy and JJ's first attempt at this, and they are hooked! Billy and JJ always have a great time visiting Mom Mom and Pa!
