Happy Independence Day! #IndependenceDayBlogTour

Heleaux Y’all!

Happy Independence Day, the day we celebrate our freedom with fireworks, hotdogs, watermelon, swimming, and spending time with the fam.

No matter if your in Alaska or Rhode Island, you most likely love Forth of July. I know I do, and I live in the depths of Lousiana, where Aligators and Crawfish roam around and- yeah okay, I’ll stop.

Anyway, I’ll just tell you what I did for Forth of July!

(Also, I know this is late, mostly because my Scheduling glitched!)

I woke up at 9:30, and I ate breakfast, and I talked to my Mom about plans. A little while later, I took a bath. Then I helped get stuff together for the fam, because we were going to my Mawmaw and Pawpaw’s camp, which is on a lake a couple miles from us.

Me and Mom then went to the grocery store, where we bought snacks and a Birthday cake. (We wandered the aisles for a while to find the Little Debbie’s, but then I realized they must be on the end of an Aisle. I was right.)

Then when we got home, we packed up and left!

When we got to the camp, we got all the stuff out of the truck, (I like, ran. LOL, 6 kids and a baby is not my choice of travel) and I went into the camp to say hello to everyone.

Except they were all down the pier, which is like, 120 feet long? It looks longer and feels longer than it actually feels, but trust me, its a long way down, and you can’t run.

So there I go. Traveling down the pier. One step at a time. I notice pink stuff every where, but I think nothing of it.

I finally get there, and I can say hello to everyone! It’s kind of cool, in the temperature way. I decide to go back down and help Mom carry in bags.

La de da de da, down the pier we go again.

“Are you going to fish?” I hear my Pawpaw say.

“Oh I don’t know, maybe!” I say, but the answer is really no. But if I say that he’ll look at me like I went to China just to watch TV.

I reach the cabin, and I help unload. I grab my bag that I brought (With books in it) down to the pier. I get out a chair to read, and I don’t sit down. Why? There’s a spider on the chair. I do not want to sacrifice the book I was reading so I just kind of sat there. Waiting. until finally I decided just to shake the chair. The spider is missing. The spider is probably still on the chair. I bring the chair to the middle of the pier, where all the adults usually are.

I snap it with a rag and it falls off. Victory. I start to read. Everyone comes down to the pier now. About 30 minutes later, I go back down to camp. (I have a bad reputation for not being able to decide where to go)

As I am happily walking back, I see it. A snake (I typed Snack on accident lol), on the pier. In a panic, I decide to jump off of the pier and unto the muddy ground. Now I am in a snake infested area. I can’t move because there is muddy all around me, so I go back unto the pier, a couple feet away from the snake, and run back to tell everyone about it.

“Oh okay.” They all say.

Then my five- excuse me, six, year old cousin and my sister walk back down the pier, ignoring me and what I say.

They make it. With no snake in their path. I walk back down the pier too, running past where the snake was.

My Pawpaw say me and told me not to run. I said Yes Sir, even though I could’ve said,

“BUT THE SNAKEEEEEE!!!”

Anyway, I make it into the camp, tell my Mom and my Aunt, and they where a lot more sympathetic. I eat a snack.

Before I know it, it’s lunch time. I don’t bring up the snake. Because they didn’t care last time.

Pretty much nothing interesting happened after that, so lets skip to about Four O’ clock. My cousin says, “Let’s catch you a fish.”

You see, I can’t fish. Hold up, let me rephrase that, I can, I know how, but Fish do not like to bite my hook.

So I put my pole in the water and wait.

No fish. I change fishing spots. No fish. I go everywhere, no fish.

I get tired of this, so I go into the camp to rest.

The rest is boring, so I’ll spare you the details. We go home, we eat jambalaya, and I take a bath. When I get out, I get on my computer and search up the pink stuff on the trees.

Turns out, it was snail eggs, pink and poisonous snail eggs.

THE END.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  1. Sounds like you had a pretty good Fourth!! πŸ˜† That story was hilarious. I’m not a huge fan is fishing, though I will do it occasionally. We didn’t do much for the Fourth; just hung out around the house, went to the pool, and my sister made a cake. We were going to go to the beach with a family, but a new mask order put an end to that.
    I’ve come in contact with some snakes; the first one was a poisonous snake (a copperhead), which my mom and I killed in our backyard. The second one was a snake (I don’t know what kind it was) that decided to hang out on a chair on our back porch one night. I won’t describe the killing scene we had with that one….it was pretty grisly. 😜
    Have a great day!

  2. Oh my! I do NOT like snakes!!!! This summer they have been really bad where I live in Michigan….we caught 4 (each very different) snakes in a couple hours time a few weeks ago! And we’ve seen at least that many around since!!! Seeing snakes just kinda gives me the creeps….not so much because they’re scary, they really aren’t (except the Michigan puff adder…look it up!) but they are so silent…you don’t know they’re there until you’re right by them! 😬😬😬

  4. I’ve encountered more snakes than I can count. It’s gotten to such a point that I don’t really care anymore. I just make a game of identifying what kind it is. I can’t identify many more than the venomous ones, but I suppose that’s what’s most important.
