The First Day of Summer: June 9th, 2017

Hi! It’s Mara here, and today I have a post about what I did on my first day of summer. Enjoy!

I woke up at about 7:30 and went over to my best friend’s house for breakfast. She lives behind me, and we have a gate connecting our two houses. We watched our favorite TV Show When Calls the Heart and drank frozen chocolate (basically like chocolate milk with ice chunks in it) in two goblets. We also ate a whole box of doughnut holes from our local grocery store.

After that, we went kayaking at a big lake called Veterans Lake. It was a lot of fun and we decided to kayak behind two geese (we called them Gertrude and Gandalf) that were floating across the lake. I also ended up kayaking right through a willow tree, it hurt but it was fun.

For lunch, we went back to my best friend’s house and we put together a double hammock that she got. We ate lunch (grilled cheese and clementines) on the hammock. It was really fun until we accidentally flipped the hammock over.

Next, we walked a block to our community’s outdoor pool, which opened today. We were really excited until we saw some of our enemies from school (3 extremely annoying boys.) We ignored them and went over to hang out in the 12ft well with two of our other friends from school. I taught them how to do front flips, back flips, handstands, front walkovers, and back walkovers underwater. Then I tried to persuade them to go diving of the diving board with me but they wouldn’t and said they would just watch me. We all had a lot of fun at the pool, but most of us got sunburned in the end. We might have forgotten to put sunscreen on…

We went back to my best friend’s house and binge watched 3 episodes of When Calls the Heart while eating dinner (pizza.) Then we went to the park across the street to play soccer with one of her dogs. Then we went back to her house and went to DQ. She got a dilly bar and I got a blizzard.

It was a really fun 1st day of summer! I hope you enjoyed the post, keep your eyes peeled for more to come.
