My mom and sister returned from Texas about two weeks ago, and now it's my turn to make the journey! I arrived in the Dallas/Fort Worth area on Monday afternoon and will go back home to New York next Tuesday.
When I arrived, my Aunt Belinda met me at the airport and we grabbed my giant suit case and headed back towards her house. My cousins Andrew and Colin were there awaiting my arrival and came to say hi as soon as I got there :-)
My Uncle Paul got home from work a little while later, but we never had a proper hello, because he had biked to and from work that day, so he was a little sweaty and stinky haha.!!!
That night we took a short walk around the neighborhood with the two dogs, then Aunt Belinda and I watched a few hours of tv together before I crashed for the night.
Yesterday, Aunt Belinda and I drove about half an hour to a store called Sam Moon, which turned out to be a massive store FILLED with completely affordable jewelry and every type of bag imaginable! It was heaven for me!
We then stopped at a locally owned Vegan restaurant... it was DELICIOUS!
After being home for a while, I took a short nap, then joined Colin and Andrew on a short trip to the closest mall while they picked out their mom's birthday present.
Last night, Aunt Belinda and Uncle Paul made a very yummy dinner, which included Salmon, my favorite source of protein! Then, Colin invited me to go bowling with him and two of his friends, so we headed off to the bowling ally (which, coincidentally, was named "Brunswick-something-or-other")!
It was a lot of fun for me to hang out with people my age in a place so far away from all of my friends!
Today is my Aunt Belinda's birthday, and while she's out to lunch with one of her friends, which I was invited to, but didn't want to harsh her hang, I am going to make her a birthday cake :-)
That's all for now, but it's only my third day here, so there will definitely be more to come!
