The Barkmans-first 5 days

On July 3rd my best friend Katherine and her family came from
Pennsylvania to stay at our house for 9 days. This is our jam packed
schedule. Day 1: After an awesome day at sailing camp we went home to
wait for them to come. They arrived around midnight and so Katherine
and I stayed up until 1:00 AM talking. Day 2: We went to the beach
with hopes to go swimming and windsurfing. Once we got there we say
about 12 pink foot wide jelly fish just lying on the beach, so we
decided to go home. After lunch me, Cole,Thomas,Cole's best friend,
Katherine, Daddy and Pete, Katherine's dad, went to see the movie
Hancock. It was really funny. Before dinner one of Mommy's friends
came with her family. The kids names' are Juliana and Blaire (I don't
know if I spelled that right). Day 3: My Birthday! For my birthday
gift Mommy and Darlene, Katherine's Mom, took Katherine and me
shopping to get 2 or 3 identical outfits so that while I am on my trip
we can look the same in different places on the earth and think of
eachother for the whole day. My favorite one was the yellow polka dot
tankini we got. After dinner we got to go out to frosty freez, an
awesome ice cream place. Day 4: The Big Party. As soon as we woke up
Daddy told all 4 kids to help clean out the garage. After breakfast
around 9:00 the people bringing the big blow up slides came, and at
9:30 we were playing on the most awesome water-slide I have ever been
on that was blown up. At 12:00 guests started to come. Sometime after
lunch channel 10 news came to our house to interview me, Cole, my mom
and dad. It was so cool. We were on the news at 6:00. Everyone was
gone by 8:30. After dinner the kids pulled the adults on the water
slide. We had so much fun. Day 5: We didn't really do much that day.
It was our only somewhat relaxing day. Except for making a dance store
with Katherine, and pretending that costumers were coming to buy stuff
at our store. My hands are tired of typing, so I'll tell you about the
last 4 days later.

Hey Cammy, its Gunnar from sailing camp. Ignore that comment on the first one. I was thinking of giving ourselvs code names and starting the blog with "G-Dog Skipper Log Day 1" or somthing like that. Well let me tell you a life lesson,... driving for 10 is NOT fun. But the camping is great (cough no it isn't). But I'm here in typing in a historic WW2 Canadan airforce barracks in Yukon, ( go figure) Canada. I'm fine (kinda), and lifes good. TTLY

Hi Gunner,
I don't know your email address but don't put it in a comment just in case. How many days have you been driving? when you say camping do you mean in a tent or in a cabin? I don't really understand the code name thing. It sounds cool though.
