So, heres the story.
My roommate, Kelley, lives in Montana. She is friends with Aaron Light, who was my old FHE Brudda from Fall 09 semester. We decided to drive up for the weekend because we are in Rexburg.
We started our trip on Thursday night, and drove through the night. We were supposed to leave Friday after classes but we got too antsy. It was really exciting because on the car ride up to Billings, MT it was snowing. You ask, why was it snowing in June? I don't know. So we almost hit a wolf, and the deer on the side of the road scared me, so I screamed. We also took the wrong way so we went through Yellowstone, but just on the outside. I wish I would have seen it, but it was dark. Kelley was really scared to drive in the snow storm and then was wondering why I was so chill about the storm. I still don't really know why. But it was.....AN ADVENTURE.....going up there in the middle of the night. By 4 a.m. things start sounding a lot funnier than they should and I'm pretty sure we had intelligent conversations about railroads or something like that. But we got to Billings at 6 a.m. then I slept till about 1 pm. Then I met Brittany, Shelby, and Mike and they are freaking awesome people. Such funny people and just so easy to talk to.
Side note: Montana is nicknamed the big sky state. And they really mean it. For some reason, they sky just looks huge. I know that's really weird to say but it just looks gigantic!
So then we meet up with Aaron after jumping on Shelby's trampoline. By the way, her backyard has this big rock or something and lots of green and a little stream. How cool is that!?!?! Really cool, I know. It's gorgeous. We were over at his house and played Super Mario Smash Bros. which is a lot harder than it looks. We went folfing (frisbee and golf) and I thought I was good, for being in last place on my first time. Then got Little Caesar's. I met Myra, LOVE HER. She's so awesome. And then we went to the Drive In and watched Karate Kid (lame) and then Marmaduke (lame, but clever). Then went to Wal-Mart and the park and almost got sick on one of the spinny things.
Then on Saturday we went over to Aaron's house and let me tell you something. He has 13 in all in his family. So there house is just crazy, and I love it! He's one of the oldest so there's little kids running around and it's just so nice. They have (this is my guess-amation) 5 horses, 3 dogs, 2 goats, 10 chickens, and 2 mules. Something like that. But just animals everywhere! Some of his little sisters came out with me to pet the horses, I loved it. There my best friends right now. They have such an open backyard. And they have this swing hanging on a tree. It is so cool. Aaron thought he lost me because his sisters asked me if I wanted to pet the goats and I didn't tell anyone where I was going. It's okay though, I was fine. Then we went roller blading, which I don't do at all. Myra was a very nice teacher and put a lot of confidence in me which I did not have. We went down one hill, and I was fine. But then the second hill for some reason did not look as steep to me so I thought I could handle it......
I got scared to I went off to the side of the bike trail and just ate it, so therefore I fell really hard and rolled. It was kind of like falling off an inner tube in the lake, except a lot hard with more scars. So nothing like it, except the falling off. But it was soooooo awesome!! Myra is so sweet, and she barely knows me, but still was so concerned about me. She just had me hold on to the back of her on the way back, which still amazes me that she pulled me uphill also. Then after that Myra took me back to Brittany's house and I took a nap, woke up, and then we went to a park, didn't really do anything spectacular, but we just hung out. It was nice though cause I still am kind of sore from falling. Then we came back to the house me and Kelley are staying at, and then everyone fell asleep while watching Princess and the Frog while I was doing homework. I'm so bored just because I took a nap so I am wide awake and everyone's asleep. All well. Maybe I will sleep more.
But it's been real. It's been fun. But it hasn't been real fun.
