Senior Trip 09

this past weekend some friends and I went on a little trip we classified as our senior trip since none us went to Myrtle Beach when we graduated. We went The Beach Waterpark in Cincinatti. It was alot of fun! We left Saturday morning and got to the park just in time for opening. It was kinda cold so there were not very many people there so we didn't have to wait in any lines at all :) After we left the park we went to our hotel room and got ready to go out for the night. We went to Outback Steakhouse and then went to a shopping center. We hit up Barnes and Noble, Old Navy and a pet store. We came home Sunday morning because Anthony had to be at work at 10:00 a.m. At noon I went to Anthony's Grandparent's house for a cookout. Well I wondered all week why I couldn't just come when Anthony did when he got off work at 5:00 but I just figured they wanted me there too, but to my surprise it was a birthday party for me and Anthonys step sister Brandie! Anthony's Grandma is so sweet!!!! She got us a cake and a present and had been planning this party for a while ;)

Yesterday was my bday we just had pizza and ice cream at our house and had Aunt Lori and Uncle Matt come over with the kids. Mom even bought the stuff to make blizzards, mmmm. I got some scrapbooking stuff from Mom & Dad and a gift card to Kohls from the Spikers! So now I get to go shopping.

Today I am working 12;30-5 then am going to my friend Kaci's house to help her finish the scrapbook we have been working on for her Marine. He just graduated basic training and she is leaving tomorrow to go see him, it has a been a long 3 months for her. She is so excited and we are all so proud of Vince!

Tomorrow is my last day of work for the week. Thursday Anthony and I leave for Put-in-Bay I am so excited =) Mom & Dad will be joining us on friday. Thursday we are meeting my Aunt Karen, Uncle Kurt, Jeremy & Jamie and their friends and following them there. We get back next tuesday so there will be pictures from that next week.
So now I will leave you with pictures from our trip this past weekend.

In the next 10 years...

here are some places I want to go or plan to do in the next 10 years.
-ALASKA. I don't really care where I go to in Alaska but I know there are some amazing picture ops there :) Anthony has always said he wanted to go there but I thought he was crazy because when I used to think of Alaska I always thought eskimos and igloos, but recently I saw The Proposal and fell in love! So one day we will go there whether its an Alaskan cruise or just stay in the mountains for a week.

-CARRIBEAN ISLANDS. I know most people have already done this or it isn't even a question about doing it but I have never been there and think its just breathtaking.

-GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE. Well duh of course this had to be on my list, but it is really funny to think about the fact that if I still go along the path that I have chosen this is going to take up over half of my next 10 years.

-MOVE TO NORTH CAROLINA. Yes thats right I want to leave this little town in Ohio. I am going to miss everyone terribly but its not like it is the other side of the US it just 10 hours or so. I just feel so at home when we go there. I don't want to live at the beach, I want a nice place in the country with maybe a 45 minute drive to the beach. This is something that I can see myself doing within the next 4-5 years. When JK graduates high school and I have finished up my undergrad at Ohio University.

-3RD WORLD COUNTRY. I feel like going somewhere like this will really make me appreciate what I have and what God has blessed me with. I want to be able to make a difference in someones life and by doing this I feel like I could.

-ADOPT. I don't know if this is necessarily in the next 10 years but I think it would be cool to adopt one child. I would prefer adopting a child from the United States. I feel like there are enough children in the US that need help too. This is not a for sure but I think it would be an amazing feeling.

-3 TO 4 KIDS. Yes I want to have that many kids but that is probably going to be in the next 10-15 years ;)

I am sure I will add more to this at another time or as the years go by but I thought it would be cool to make a list like this and in 10 years look back and see what I really accomplished.
This weekend I am going to The Beach Waterpark in Mason OH with Anthony, Victoria, Chase, Allison and Brian. None of us went on a senior trip to Myrtle Beach so we thought we would just get away for a while and have fun before we all start college. Allie leaves in August for Ohio State, she is going to be a real BUCKEYE!!! I can't wait to go visit her. Brian, Allie's bf, is already attending Ohio State and he graduated last year. Victoria is going to Otterbein which is in Columbus also and Chase is going to Ohio State Newark Campus. My best friend Jillian is going to Miami, I am going to miss her so much! My other friend Aubrey is getting married in Septmember so I don't know how life is going to be for her after that. So its kinda scary how we are all splitting up, we all have plans to keep in touch but I know how time consuming college is and that we are all going to make new friends along the way.

Next weekend we are going to Put In Bay Island as a family vacation. We are going with my Dads Aunt Karen and her son Jeremy and his wife Jamie. Its going to be so much fun! =)
So there will be lots of picture updates in the next couple weeks.

Everyone have a great weekend and be careful
Love Always

Seneca Lake..

This is from last week. We spent the whole week camping with my Grandpa & Grandma Kuhn at Seneca Lake. Its a campground in a little town called Senecaville, located an hour outside of Zanesville. So I was able to leave & go to work from there. The campground was really nice, it was right by the Marina and there was water on pretty much every side of it & a little playground for the kids. The lake was extremely clean & very deep so we didn't have to worry about anything. We spent the week relaxing, spending time with family, boating, fishing & cooking delicious food on the campfire. So here are some pictures.

That would be Seneca Lake Anthony & I. The first night there, on the edge of a little cliff that in the day time its deep enough in the water to jump off of.

Holiday Weekend highlight & NEW CAMERA

Hope everyone had a great 4tho of July, I did! We were pretty busy. Spent the whole week at Seneca Lake with my Grandpa & Grandma Kuhn, camping. That was alot of fun! I hadn't been to Seneca since I was little & we don't really spend that much time with them so it was fun to hangout for the week. We came home Thursday and then spent the weekend at the river with my Grandma and Grandpa Price. My Uncle Brad & Aunt Anita were home this weekend from South Carolina so we spent time with them too.
Another awesome thing about my holiday was that I bought a Canon Rebel XS!!!! So here are the awesome pictures that I took. These pics are actually from Monday, I twisted a muscle in my back so I didn't end up going to work & somehow our whole family was off of work monday too! So we went to the river & hungout at the sandbar :)

There are alot more to come. :)
Have a great week everyone!
Love Always
