Day 30

We got up early in the morning, and had hot chocolate for breakfast. (Along with other things.) We left quickly. (Without taking pictures, because Uncle Dick and Aunt Evelyn were in their robes.) I watched a lot of movies. (Including Annie and Prince of Persia.) We stopped for gas a few times. I took a break from watching movies because of a curvy stretch of road. We stopped at a Dairy Queen to get blizzards, then later at a Burger King to eat dinner. We stopped at the Costco near home to get gas. Then we went home and began to unpack. I went to my house to see my family. Elisabeth jumped on me when I walked in, Ben said he missed me because he had to do my jobs, Robert looked like he thought I was crazy, Mom said hi, and Leilani said she was hoping I wouldn't come home. Then they came over to Grandma's, and Ben jumped o Grandpa. Then Elisabeth tried to jump on him, but he braced himself and she bounced off him, landing on her back on the pavement. Luckily, the only thing she hurt was her elbows. We all talked, then we went home. We watched Father of the Bride and went to bed.

Day 29

When I woke up in the morning, everyone else was already awake. They were upstairs eating. I got up, made my bed, got dressed, brushed my teeth, and got on the computer to do homework. Soon I heard someone upstairs say that Uncle Mike would be arriving in a few minutes, so I began to shut down the computer. Then Grandpa came down to wake me up, but of course I was already awake. We visited with Uncle Mike's family for a while, but I was mostly playing with Alexa and/or Kailyn. Uncle Mike was evidently throwing up the night before, and had bursted a vein or something in his eye. It looked like his eye was bleeding! Then Aunt Evelyn and Uncle Dick started to fix up lunch, so I helped them. I was the bean girl. When we were all ready to eat lunch, (which was taco salad) Uncle Mike sat Alexa down across the table from me because, as he said, he wanted to get "a good blog review." Alexa ended up sitting by me anyway. After lunch they left. Grandma, Grandpa, and I went to see Grandpa's cousin, Lee after deciding to stay another night. They talked for a really long time. Then Grandma and I went inside a fabric store while Grandpa read a book he got from Lee. Grandma got a lot of fabric. After coming back, we all played Five Crowns and I Buy while eating chicken pot pie. It was good. We played until ten-thirty, then went to bed.

Day 28

We woke up, ate breakfast, and headed out by seven. The first place we stopped was Chimney Rock. That was really neat. Then we went to Register Cliff and some ruts that were taller than me! Then we drove for a really long time. We stopped at Little America to get ice cream. When the guy handed a cone to Grandma, she grabbed and totally crushed the cone, getting ice cream on her and the man's hands. It was pretty funny. After that we drove for a while longer. We got to Uncle Mark's house and visited with them and ate pizza. Then we left for Uncle Dick and Aunt Evelyn's. We chatted for a long while before going to bed.

Day 27

We woke up late and didn't eat breakfast until after ten. We had french-dip sandwiches with the roast beef we didn't have the day before. After a long while of Grandpa and Anut Clarabeth talking about cameras, we took off. I slept for a long while, then watched National Treasure Two. When I finished, we saw one of the last Pony Express stations. It was really neat. I watched The Parent Trap. By then we were where we were staying. We checked into a Days Inn, and went to Dairy Queen for dinner. Of course we had blizzards! Then we went to the hotel and slept.
