I'll Be Off!

      Every year most of my family goes up to my great- yes I said GREAT grandpa's cottage.  He turns 91 in September!  Anyway we always go up there around the 4th of July and we get to watch the fireworks while we all sit on our deck by the water.  It is truly awesome.  What also is awesome, is that the morning of 4th of July there's a huge parade where everyone throws out candy to the crowd!  We do a whole bunch of really cool things when we're up at the cottage like go fishing, riding in our teal, sparkly blue speedboat, play board games and card games with the whole family like, Apples to Apples and the card game called Demon.  I love that game sooo much!  But what I really need to tell you is that I will be leaving for a whole week and won't be posting because there's no internet there!  So don't think I've left all of you guys, I'll just be taking a little vacation!

When we will be heading up to the cottage we will stop at out grandma's house first and then we are going to see the Broadway musical Wicked in East Lansing, Michigan at the Wharton Center.   I used to love watching the Wizard of Oz when I was little, and I know the story is about the wicked witch of the West,  Elphaba and the witch of the East, the good witch named Glinda.  I've read the story and it showed Elphaba as not wicked at first, she was actually pretty nice if you ask me!  She was just really shy and quiet.  Have you seen Wicked?  Have you read the book?  What were your thoughts on it?

I hope everyone enjoys there 4th of July! :D
