Hello everyone! So much happened over memorial weekend and last weekend as well and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! I went to the car show, I went in the pool in the campground for the first time this season, and memorial weekend! I had so much fun and had a lot of laughs!

First was memorial weekend, we spent it with our friends from the campground. We didn’t do anything huge, we just hung out at the campfire together and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows! Also, we played cornhole a game where there are three holes on a board and you have to try to make the bean bags into the holes until one team gets to 21 points! It’s a really fun game. Then later that night after we played, my dad rang a bell and yelled, “TIME FOR CORNHOLE!!” Everyone started cracking up laughing! Lol.

Then after memorial weekend I went to the car show, the car show is an event that they do every year at Avalon Campground. Where they line up old time cars on the main road for people to look at and take pictures! I wanted to take pictures in front of the cars and they said, “go ahead go in it!” So I did, Even better!! So I took a bunch of pictures in the car and they were really cool, and the perfect size for me! Lol!!!

After that, I went in the pool. There were a lot of people in the big and deeper pool so that meant I could have the smaller pool to myself! Lol. Once I got in it was FREEZING!! But once I was in I got used to it fast.

I had a great time over memorial and last weekend! I’m already excited for 4th of July and it’s not even July yet! Lol! I hope you guys are too. Until next time my friends! 🙂

Hello everyone! It’s finally May, and you know what that means… Camper time! May is one of my favorite months because it means three things; spring, school ending, and SUMMER!! Once it’s summer I can finally go to the beach, the pool, and so much more! Also this past week I had my school cotillion! I can’t wait to tell you all about it!! Also opening weekend.

Opening weekend was awesome! I got to see thee final product of my new park model! It looks amazing and I already finished decorating it, full of beach themed and handmade decorations as well. The whole ride there I was jumping up and down from my car seat, I was sooo excited to get there. Once I got there I got to the deck as quick as I could, and it looked SO GREAT!! I’m really excited about how it turned out, and i’m loving having my own space to myself. So if you are ever passing the site G3, come say hello!! Lol

A few weeks ago was my 7th grade cotillion, I had a lot of fun and enjoyed putting my whole look together. Finding a dress was a very long but fun process, I looked online, went to different stores, and looked everywhere! At first there wasn’t much luck. But one of my mom’s friends told her about a place that was close from where we live called “David’s Bridal.” We went there one day after I had school and looked all around, we even had help from a designer. I was mainly looking for a two piece dress but when I was looking around it didn’t look like there were many my size, since I am pretty short. LOL! But then after looking for a while I found a short, blue, two piece dress. It. Was. Gorgeous! I went up to the designer that was helping us and I asked, “Do you have this in a smaller size?” She said no, but I still tried it on just to be sure, I loved it! But it was still too big. When I showed her that it was too big she said that they could do a rush alter. So we did! I had a lot of fun at cotillion, and I can’t wait for next year’s.

This coming weekend, is memorial weekend and there are going to be a lot happening. Hayrides, the polar bear plunge, art’s and crafts, and more! I can’t wait to do all of those and tell you all about them! Until next time my friends! 🙂 P.S. Make sure to check out Mr. Softee, i’ll be in line!!

Hello everyone!! So it’s March, one of the slowest months ever (lol). It might be slow, but at least I have something to look forward to… Opening day! I am so excited for opening week at Avalon Campground. I am not going on opening day, but I am going the week after Easter so now I can count down the days. But anyways, last blog I mentioned a special surprise.

We got the park model!! WOOO!!!!!! I can’t wait to see it; we got a sneak peak of it in November.  Me and my sister get to decorate our rooms any way we want! Now that’s the best part. If you are as excited as I am, stay tuned for the next blog to see the full thing!

IMG_2495 IMG_2494 IMG_2496

 

I hope you all had a great holiday! I did. I got some decorations for my room at the camper, and even some things to make crafts to use as decorations. I also got… A Polaroid camera!! Now I will be able to take tons of pictures at the campground, for memories sake.

I am so excited for this year at the camper! I can’t wait to come back to that environment, where there are small stores, the pool, the beach, and slim jims! LOL!! I really do miss it. But it won’t be long until I’m finally back there! So I always say to myself, only one more month… only one more month.

My sister is going to be turning 16 this summer, and she will be getting her permit card to drive, so then me and her can drive anywhere around Avalon lol. Also, she can drive me to the beach whenever I want lol! But, all jokes aside I really am proud of her! Shout out to you Lori!!

Even though it isn’t April or summer yet, I am still looking forward to different things that I can do this year. I am really really REALLY excited for this summer. I hope you all are too. Until next time my friends 🙂

The past weekends have been SOOOO much fun!!! I went to the mini stores, I went to the beach to see the moon, and most importantly… HALLOWEEN IN AUGUST!!!! I can’t wait to tell you what I was and who my cousin and my friend was! And of course, how much candy I got.

This Halloween I was… A deer!! My costume was so much fun to put together, and my makeup was really cool! Done by my sister Lori, shoutout to you Lori!!! Lol. When I went trick or treating I went with my cousin Olivia, and my other friend from the campground Maddy! Olivia was a cat, and Maddy was a nerd. Their costumes were amazing, I loved them!!!

TrickOrTreat-2016  Trick or treating was really fun too, I rode around the campground in my scooter getting TONS of candy!!! I had such a great time dressing up and going around the campground in the amazing weather!

Near Avalon Campground there are a bunch of mini shops in the woodland village to buy stuff, and there’s a cafè! And i’m gonna be honest with you all… THEY ARE SO CUTE!!! The stores are super tiny and they have such cute stuff there. Anyways, the first store I went to was the soy candle shop! The soy candle shop is a great store, they use soy wax instead of regular wax so it is better for the environment. What I bought there was a hazelnut coffee scented candle, which smells delicious!!!! And pumpkin souffle scented wax melts.

Then I went to Jammin Jellies, at this store they have an assortment of jellies, jams, marmalades, butters, and even desserts!!! At that store I got orange marmalade, a honey stick, caramel apple butter, cherry jelly, and lemon filling to make mini tarts! There were a lot of stores that I went to, I think I ended up going to all of them! Lol!!!!! I love going on this girl’s day with my mom and my sister that we do once a year at the end of the season, but this time on our way back to the camper my mom was talking about the possibilities about us getting… A park model!

I guess we will have to see for next time!! Until next time my friends! 🙂

Weekend 4 of Avalon Campground

Click above to add a comment.

Sorry I haven’t gotten anything out lately, I have been doing my summer assignment for school! But this weekend was super fun, and also really funny too!! I went to the beach, I tried a new flavor of ice cream, and the upcoming halloween weekend, and who will be going with me! I Can’t wait to tell you all about it.

This weekend I went to the beach, my dad built a beach wagon for me to get around the beach easier! 

BeachWagon   Once we got to the beautiful weathered, and the sandy beach we found a perfect spot not too far away from the ocean. Once we were settled my dad and I ran over to the ocean which was FREEZING at first, but once we were in, it was the perfect temperature! When we got use to the water we got in deeper and deeper! My dad sat in the sand and I wrapped my hands around his neck. Here comes the funny part! While I was holding his neck there was a huge wave coming our way “HERE COMES THE BIG KAHUNA!” Me and my dad kept saying as it came closer, once it hit us the water swept me off of my feet and I was still holding my dad’s neck! LOL!!! When the wave stopped, me and my dad were cracking up laughing the whole time! I had such a great time at the beach.

Then we went to a ice cream place close to our campground and got ice cream. The part that made me excited is that they had a cinnamon bun flavor, so I got that. The first lick I was in heaven!! It was so good!! By the time we were back at the campground it was halfway gone… And the campground isn’t even far away! LOL. I really enjoyed that ice cream it was delicious!

I am really excited for halloween weekend! What is halloween weekend you ask? It’s when people dress up and go trick or treating in the campground! I will be doing it with my little cousin Olivia! I’m not going to tell you my costume yet! It’s a surprise, DUN DUN DUNNN!!! How nice is that to get to go trick or treating twice a year!

I can’t wait to tell you about the things I will be doing next weekend and to tell you about halloween weekend! Until next time my friends! 🙂

Weekend 3 Of Avalon Campground

Osprey-1

Hi! Welcome back. I am so glad you’re here because I wanted to tell you about my special surprise I have for this week’s blog… I was invited to see Osprey birds last weekend! It  might seem like they are just birds but I personally am very interested by them because they are smart, they are nice to watch and… they’re really cute! Lol.

 

When I went on this fun jouOsprey-2rney we rode around in a boat to get to each nest where the birds were, every time we went to a nest the parents would fly away, but before they would leave, the parent would tell them to stay still and not to move while we put on the tags on their ankles. It was really nice because they wouldn’t try to squirm out of your arms if you held one, they would stay still when they were tagged,  just like they are supposed to do.

Osprey-5

My dad was able to carry me up the ladder to see inside of one of the high nests. When I looked in the nest I saw two baby birds sleeping, but they were so big they looked like adult Ospreys!! Fun Fact!: did you know that Ospreys come to New Jersey in the summer and fly to Venezuela. That must be  hard on their wings!

Osprey-3

While we were on this fun adventure we went on a boat, the boat ride was one of my favorite parts because it was really cool looking at the view of the ocean. It was also fun when we went super fast and tilted the boat right and left!! The boat ride was definitely a fun time! Not only that but I drove the boat!!! It was so fun!

Osprey-4

I not only had a great time with the group of people that took me on that trip, I also had a great time with my dad and that trip was definitely memory making! Thank you everyone who took me on that fun adventure it was definitely a fun day and I will never forget it EVER!!! Until next time my friends! 🙂
