Sometimes it is real easy to think of things to post about and other times I can't think of a thing. I think that is where I am right now. I going blank. I try and write about what's going on in my life but there really hasn't been a lot happening lately. I went to orientation last week with my parents to the college I will be attending for the next two years. That went pretty well, I for the most part was bored with the whole thing but at least I wasn't sitting at home being bored and we did get to stay in a pretty amazing motel. It was a suite and it would have been nice to stay longer if we would have had the time and of course money.=)
My brother and I are heading to Villisca where we will spend the night in a haunted house with some friends of ours. A family was murdered there several years ago and spirits have been seen and felt inside this house. We went last summer and it's true, it is haunted. We have a little bit larger group going this year and it should be interesting. We are Christians and we definitely pray over ourselves before, during and after this experience. This house is one of the top ten scariest places around.

We finally got to go to one of the figure 8 races that is held in the town where my parents live. It's the first one this summer and probably the last because we will be moving in about a week and a half. So, the race was underway and it was going great when all the sudden we get a thunderstorm with big drops of rain. Because of that they had to stop the race. We finally got to the races and then had to sit through that. Oh well, we still made it fun.

My family and I went to Minneapolis for the weekend and on our way up there we stopped at Cabelas. Cabelas is an amazing store. There are all kinds of things for people who love to hunt and fish. You can also find items like regular clothing, food items or things to decorate your home with. We decided to eat lunch there and I had a huge buffalo burger. It was so good. I had never eaten there before so that was kind of fun to do. If you ever get a chance to stop at a Cabelas you won't be disappointed. There are lots of stuffed real animals in displays, it is pretty cool.

The other night we had some really intense weather. There were a few tornadoes and funnel clouds spotted around where my parents live and where I live. I went outside and was taking some video when I saw a funnel cloud coming down and was expanding. It was really something to see. It then went back up into the clouds, thank the good Lord. The storm clouds were unbelievable. It was just fascinating to see. We received so much rain that many of the roads in the city where I live were flooded. It was one crazy night.

Lately I've been going to Dolliver with my brother and some friends. Dolliver is a great park with lots of trails, a river running through and a camp ground. It's a huge park with lots of trees and hills. We like going out there toward evening and taking long walks and while we do that we make up stories to try and freak each other out. It's pretty fun and I need to get out there again soon.

I am a huge fan of the WWE. John Cena is one of the best wrestlers out there. I have had the chance to meet him on a couple of different occasions. John Cena is an American actor, hip hop musician, and wrestler. He wrestles for WWE and performs on their Raw brand. In his career with the WWE, Cena has been a three time WWE Champion.
Outside his career as a wrestler he has release a rap album called "You Can't See Me" and has starred in the movie "The Marine". He has also made special appearances on television programs such as Deal or No Deal and Madtv and other shows. He is an awesome wrestler and person.

Adventureland is an amusement park in Des Moines, Iowa. Next week I am going with my cousins and a few friends for a day. We are hoping the rain that is in the forecast holds off. It's been a couple of years since I've been there. It seems they try to add something new each year and this year they have added a water park. I'm not sure how big it is but if it is hot it will sure feel good and hopefully cut down on the length of the lines for the water rides such as the log ride. It will be great to get away for a day and just have some fun.
