Daily Summery

It is now day #3 here in Lynchburg Virginia and I am definitely enjoying my stay. There are a few things in life I usually don’t enjoy too much and that is: Bombing someone else’s bathroom.. (Sorry Maria), Feeling like a tourist, and feeling like a  newbie at something…but I found myself enjoying 2 out of these 3 things at some point.

Yesterday my brother in a tour guide like fashion took us to tour Thomas Jefferson’s house. Pretty interesting I must say. I hated history in school, but I love it when you are physically present in a place that a big part of history took place. I am a very visual person so when I can see, touch, and feel a part of history it is way more meaningful and interesting to me. He was a pretty smart guy that Thomas Jefferson.

After getting to know Mr. Jefferson a little better. We headed off for a game of disc golf. This was my first time playing disc golf and I super hate sucking at things and was pretty intimidated at first. Thankfully my brother knew how to make me not feel so bad at being able to throw a Frisbee a whopping two feet. I started to catch on toward the end and would definitely enjoy playing another game sometime in the near future. One of the highlights of the evening was when the lightening bugs came out. We don’t get these natural wonders over in California. For my fellow West Coasters, if you have never seen lightning bugs before, they are these awesome little beetle looking bugs that have glowing butts. I am strangely amused by them.

After we finished up playing disc golf, we headed over to a local pizza place and picked up a pizza to eat while we watched the Lakers vs. Celtics game. The pizza was delicious, and the Lakers game was good too but unfortunately I was too tired to stay up for the 4th quarter. ( I am the worst guest aren’t I?) But yea..go Lakers?

Today there is something huge about to happen. Yep, Toy Story 3 comes out! I am stoked and I can’t wait to go see it tonight. Oh childhood memories. It makes me want to go out and buy Toy Story toys.

Well, happy Friday everyone!


  1. Hahahaha, you make me laugh. I'm so glad you're enjoying your time here because I know we are!

    Oh and I agree with you on so many levels... Totally understand the history part. I hated history in school too, but love seeing it in person. And I'm stoked to see Toy Story 3 tonight (sans the 3D glasses you have to continually adjust, but it's worth it). We should check out the Disney store in DC too

  2. Well if u are really serious about wanting to go and play disc golf again we can for sure. And who knew Ol' Teezy Jeffereson was such cool cat? I look forward to getting to spend some time up in DC. That's where lots of fun history is. Not to mention lots of movies that you have seen.
    I'm so glad ur here. We'll have to see if one night we can catch a bunch of lightning bugs. Also, sorry our local commercials are so crappy.
