RIP Neil Armstrong

Hello my butterflies.

Yesterday we lost one of the men who showed us that anything is possible. Neil Armstrong once again left the earth, but this time he didn't go to the moon. He inspired so many people and will truly be missed. RIP Neil Armstrong.

Falling Skies finale!

Hello my butterflies!

Last night was the finale of Falling Skies! Those of you who have read  my blog posts about it or follow me on Twitter know that I'm just a wee bit obsessed with the show... ok maybe more than a wee bit! It's been a super crazy season and I couldn't believe that the finale had come so quickly. It really wasn't that quick, but it feels that way. I just have to say that the ending was left us on such a cliff hanger that I'm seriously doubting my ability to wait patiently until the new season! I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!!! -breathes- Whew, sorry there. Told you I'm obsessed! But seriously, this season was really great and I can't wait to see season 3!

Family fishing

Hello my butterflies!

Today I went fishing with my family for the first time. I've always wanted to go fishing, so I was so happy that I was getting to go. We went digging in the soil around the lake we went to for worms. We didn't find many but the ones I found, I actually touched. Usually, bugs and worms creep me out. But I was going for the full experience, including touching the bait! We didn't catch anything but I had a great time.

Oh my goodness, barbecued hot dogs are so amazing. Apparently the bees thought so too. There were bees all over us! But luckily, no one got stung!

It was a great end-of-summer family day and I can't wait to have more in the future! Hopefully, I'll catch something next time!

Olympics Closing Ceremony

Hello my butterflies!

Last night the Olympics came to an end with the Closing Ceremony. It was really nice, even though I was totally bummed that the Olympics were ending already.

It was great to see George Michael perform! My dad loves his music so I'm a fan but I've never seen him perform other than in music videos.

Jessie J sang "Price tag" and Taio Cruz sang "Dynamite", two of my favorite songs!

Then was the reunion of the Spice Girls! My older sister was a huge fan of theirs so I became a fan. I don't think I was quite as excited as she was, but I was definitely looking forward to seeing them together again. They were so great!

I also thought it was so cool to see the projection of Freddie Mercury! I'm a huge Queen fan! Even as a projection, he captivated the audience and got everyone to sing along. He is still truly amazing.

The Closing Ceremony was really nice. I really enjoyed watching the Olympics and hearing the athletes' stories. It was a really fun two weeks to watch and I can't wait for the next Olympics in 2014! Thank you London!

NASCAR race at Pocono

Hello my butterflies.

Yesterday was the NASCAR race from Pocono Raceway. This is the track that is closest to where I live, and my family and I have been there for a race twice. It was a good race until the intense rain started. The rain came pouring down and it even started lightning and thundering. Due to safety, NASCAR called the race, allowing Jeff Gordon his first win of the year. Go Jeff! Unfortunately, some people were struck by lightning while exiting the track and trying to get home. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who was injured and their families.
