I haven’t been ice skating in years, but this winter I’ve been twice, both at the Downtown Sacramento Ice Rink with my best friends! I forgot how much fun it is, even if you fall a few times. The ice rink downtown is newly renovated and is the perfect place to hand out and have fun!
STOMP is finally at Broadway Sacramento for its 25th Anniversary National Tour and you have to see it! Through the dance and music, I was in awe the entire time. The show is unique, captivating, comical, full of energy, and entertaining for everyone who attends. Any every day item from brooms, inner tubes, garbage cans, plastic bags, and even just the actor’s bodies are utilized to create incredible percussion and the famed “Rhythm of New York.”
I was so excited to hear that my mom and I got tickets to see the Broadway at Music Circus show Little Shop of Horrors last night! This was my first time (and my mom’s) even hearing about the show and movie, so going in, I had no idea what it was going to be about, but I was happily surprised and actually really enjoyed the performance.
Their round theater was really cool and made the show a lot more interesting. It moved up and down, rose and fell, and had no backstage. They also acted in the isles which made the show even better!
I had so much fun in Manitou Springs at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park doing all kinds of activities. A lot of people just come for the cave or only know about the cave, but there’s so much to do when visiting. There are various rides, a ropes course and rock wall, and the different cave tours where you learn a lot about the different aspects of the cave. Inside the cave tour building there’s also food and a gift shop.
The nice thing was that we bought the wristbands so we could do the rides and course as many times as we wanted. We spent so much time here doing all the activities, but it did get cut short when it began to rain like crazy along with insane winds. Luckily since it’s a cave tour, you don’t notice the rain!
Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park is an insanely fun experience for all ages! There are 10 different courses, all with unique zip lines, obstacles, and bridges. I had no idea that Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park even existed until my grandparents took my brother and I this summer. Turns out, it was AMAZING! This company has three different parks and we went to the one right in Tahoe City next to the Granlibakken Lodge (they also have on on Tahoe Vista and Squaw). This ropes course and zip line park was the coolest thing ever and we had an insane amount of fun doing all the different courses.
It was actually a lot harder than I thought, but after doing a few, we were just like professionals. You get 2 and 1/2 hours to explore the whole park and it was plenty of time to do the courses. Carter and I repeated some of the courses, but you can do all of the different courses with some extra time to spare.
Starting high school last year, and getting to finally be a high school student with my friends, has been an incredible experience. Freshman year was awesome! High school is a lot different than I imagined, considering I got all of my ideas of high school from High School Musical and Bring It On. It was not like those movies at all! Nevertheless, it was a fun year full of memories, ups and downs, and a lot of “first time” things.
After the first few days, my friends and I even found an “our spot” where we eat lunch every single day together!
It’s that time of year again and the Sacramento County Fair is back in town! Featuring amazing food, super fun rides, fantastic shows, an abundance of animals, and more, the fair is an awesome experience for everyone. The fair is May 24 through Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, 2018, at the CalExpo Fairgrounds. This is the 82nd year of the fair with the theme Let’s Eat, Have Fun, And Celebrate The Red, White, And Blue. There are so many fun things to whether your with friends or family at the Sacramento County Fair.
Media Preview Night: Food and Fun
The preview night for media and bloggers was lots of fun and we had a chance to try some pretty awesome food and check out the rides and entertainment.
One of the big things I wanted t happen in my life was to be in actual falling snow. I had seen it on TV and on other people’s social medias and I had wanted to experience it ever since. I FINALLY DID and it was in Grand Canyon National Park! Needless to say it was awesome and one of my favorite memories that trip.
During our hike that day which followed Hermit’s Road, we were in small flurries off and on. I had really hoped that the storm would pick up and dump some snow later that day.
One of the first thing we did in Grand Canyon National Park was the lookouts and activities along the Desert View Drive. This road has 6 official lookouts, a bunch of other pull outs for spectacular views, the Tusayan Ruins and museum, and at the end is the Desert View Watchtower. We explored everything the road has to offer in just over half a day.
The road is 100% accessible with your own vehicle which allowed us to have our ice chest and lunch at some pretty awesome lookouts. In addition to the pullouts and other sites, there are some picnic spots to stop at too.
The second semester spirit week for this year was Fire vs. Ice theme to go along with the VAPA rally. The dress up days could have been better, but my friends and I still dressed up every day! All of the days were underclassmen against upperclassmen and everyone really wanted to beat each other to win.
