Pancake Barn!

While we were at my Grandparents house we went to a pancake barn.
My Mom found out about it in the New Hampshire magazine.
It is a little family owned Maple sugar farm in Sanbornton,NH.
They run a little restaurant next to their maple sugar barn.It is an all you can eat
breakfast.It was SO good.While we waited for our breakfast we got to go to a balcony that overlooks their maple sugaring machine.That was really neat.Our family choose chocolate chip,orange cranberry,pumpkin,and blueberry pancakes.The chocolate chip and blueberry were the best.The bacon and home Fry's were also out-of-this-world!The maple syrup we used on the pancakes was their own home made syrup.We all had a great time!
Here are some pictures of all the fun!

P.S. They had these great puppets for the children to play with while wating for
the food.I think the aldults had more fun with them than the children did as you will see!

Snow Caves!

Yesterday The Longinos took Noah and me to Paul Smiths Interpretive Center
where we learned how to make snow caves.Ashley and me paired up to make one,Noah and Alyosha
made one together,and Katie and Grace made one together.Mr.Longino just walk around and helped the boys some with theirs.The boys snow cave was done first,and Katie was almost done with hers when Mr.Longino fell into hers.Mine and Ashley's took the longest and was the smallest because there was a lot of snow and ice to move.The instructor said if she had to choose who's was the best the boys had won!We worked on our"snow House"for two hours in really
bad weather.The instructor said it made the experience more realistic!We had a lot of fun,but got really cold and wet in the process.The lady made hot cocoa for us when we were done.
Here are some pictures of Ashley's and my snow cave,and also one of the boys(I didn't get pictures of Katie's before it caved in).

This is Ashleys and my snow cave!

Driving School!

Last Saturday My friends:Ashley,Carmon,Lea,and Noah's friend Alyosha
went to a 5 hour driving course.It was in Saranac Lake at the community college.
Our teacher was a retired policeman,and he was very nice!Our class started at 10:00a.m.
with watching a video about teenagers and accidents.The story's were really sad!
After that we took a short test,the teacher said not to worry,he would not grade them.
Then we got out our work books out,and each person read a accident report from a newspaper clipping.We then had to decide if it was the environment that caused the accident,or the driver.
Out of 28 people in our class only one was from the environment,and of the 27 accidents that
were the drivers fault,8-9 people were killed in them!The teacher told us that a least half of the
class would get in a accident within a year of getting our licences!We had a half an hour break for
lunch.I was SO embarrassed,because I dumped my drink,and it spilled all over the floor!
We read more in our book then had two more 10 min. breaks.The last thing we did was watch a
video about an bad accident in Florida.When the class got over at 3:30 p.m.,I was really glad.
Our teacher had told us at the beginning it was going to be a boring class and he was right!
Here are some pictures of my friends that I went with.
