The Airshow

On Saturday we went to Culpepper for an airshow. It was really fun. We got to see old warbirds. There was a harrier there. It was the only privatly owned harrier. Kolby, Bryant, John, Luke, Granddad, Dad, and I went. The parking was really confusing. out front they had some neat cars parked. We met a nascar wheelin driver.


For my Birthday we went camping at a state park near First Landing State Park. We rode bikes a lot. We even got a free private 6 person golf cart ride on my b-day! We called some owls with a bird call. The campground was right on the Chesapeake bay. There is a 17 mile bridge-tunnel.


On Sunday the 3rd, we got woken up early because we had to get ready for brickfair. Brickfair is a lego convention that has games, places to buy stuff, and also displays. While I was there I bought Ghost of Vitruvirus (Lego Movie), Kai and spinner (ninjago), and a skeleton (Pirates). I also got a spring powered mortar. It actually shoots over 8 feet!! It was really fun. I wore my brickarms shirt. Brickarms is a group that makes guns. After that we went to the air and space museum.

Florida Trip, Part 2

This is continued from Florida Trip, Part 1. The Collingsworth family was singing in a town called Hobe Sound. We got there early and parked across the road. We went and played at the beach that was ten minuets away. We took Kolby’s Cake there because it was his b-day.

Florida Trip, Part 1

On Jan 29, We left for Key West. A few days earlier, Dad got a call from a business guy. The guy works for Landmark Aviation and they were getting a new location for a Cube unit. The guy asked if Dad had checked out the new location yet. Dad said no, and so the guy texted Dad the address. Turns out that it was Key West International Airport! For months Dad had been wanting to go to Key West. So we drove down in our motorhome. A week earlier I had found out that the Collingsworth Family was singing in Avon Park, FL.  On our trip, Dad said that it would not work to go see them because it was in the middle of Florida and we were going down the east coast. “But They are having one that is more on our way”. In fact, we were going through that town anyway. So we went and saw them sing. To be continued…

New Years Party

On New years eve we went to the meeting hall for a party. We had world records and country themed foods. We also had skits. Carson Cox and I got to open and shut the curtains for everyone. We also were the stage crew for Brooks when he did jokes and threw out candy. We did a raffle and silent auction. I got iPad battleship and Bananagrams which is like scrabble without the board and you do not take turns. it was really fun.

At the Marine Museum

On December 6th Grandmother and Granddad took Blaine, Landen, Kenley, Luke, Bryant, and I to the National Marine Museum. We went to four fast food places that day. They were McDonalds for breakfast, Krispy Kreme for doughnuts, Panda Express for dinner and Wendy’s for a frosty. It neat at the museum. There was a playset that was set up like a training course. I liked the Cold War section because of a scene that we played in.


On Saturday the 15th of November Dad and Mom went to a BRMRG ( see Mom’s post: paragraph 4) meeting. Us kids went to Sherry Martin’s house. She gave me a Harlem Globetrotters ball. About 12:30 Mom and Dad came  to pick us up. We went to Northside library for a Lego contest and The Lego Movie! I entered a lego mindstorms robot and won best in robotics. After that we were leaving and saw a hot air balloon. You might think that that is not very neat and that you see them a lot. But have you seen one almost land in the median of 29, almost land on Browns autos,  through a tree, and then we just missed when they landed! We got to see them pack it up. Keep an eye on for more info. We went all over the place.

Our Camping Trip

On Thursday the 23rd of October our family went camping at Douthat State park. We went from the 23rd to the 26th. The weather was nice. We hiked and biked a lot. This was our 2nd time there.  We got to borrow these backpacks called nature knapsacks that had all sorts of books about nature 

Camp Post

On September 26-28 we were at camp post. Us kids rode bikes a lot. The kids wedged plastic bottles in their wheels to make dirt bike sounds. On the 27th we rode bikes on a trail dad ridden on a few years ago. It was hard. We went to a swinging bridge. Other pepole went hiking to the viewing rock ( jump rock ) and jump mountain witch are two different things. The next day others went to the viewing rock. I went crawdad hunting with a few others. We only caught 5 tiny ones. Later the girls and little kids came down to the river with us. On the last day of camp we played Swedish softball. For those of you who don’t know what that is I’ll explain it. It’s like baseball except you use a tennis racket, tennis ball, no foul balls, and two ways to get out. The first way is to catch the ball. The second way is if the pitcher gets the ball and steps on the mound. On the way home Carson, Brooks, and gweneth went with us to outback for dinner. We got home around 10:00 PM and slept in the motorhome. I was having too much fun to take pics.
