Balance training!
 Me with my brother Justin in Maine! Maine is so beautiful especially when it is nice out. You get a really nice view of the water. It was so nice!

I made this wonderful cookie pie today before climbing. It was so gooey and yummy! The recipe is from Chocolate Covered Katie. I reduced the amount of sugar by half and added hemp seeds. Healthy and delicious!

This is me and my cousin Taylor sitting in front of an herb garden in the Cloisters. It is a very beautiful garden and a beautiful museum. In the middle of the garden there is a really nice fountain.
I went to the Cloisters with my cousins. It was a lot of fun! On top is a picture of me standing in front of the Hudson river.

I just read this wonderful sequel to Journey to America. It was great!! I read it in a couple of hours. I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read the third book!

 After climbing today I finished Watership Down! It was excellent! It was about a group of bunnies that ran away from their home to find a new one but they had a few adventures on the way. It was sad and funny!

 I saw this AWESOME movie with my brother today! It was so good! I didn't think it would be as good as the book but I think it was actually better.

 I pulled a muscle in my shoulder so I spent the day reading Journey to America. The book is about three young girls whose father leaves Germany to  go to America in order to escape the Nazis.  He sends his wife and his three children to Switzerland until he can make enough money to bring them to America. I loved this book and I am really glad that it is the first of a three part series.

Today since it was my rest day and rainy outside, I made these yummy Mounds Bars from Chocolate Covered Katie. They are delightful!
