Ate at Famous Dave’s with Rhonda, Delia, Stacey, Ashley, Devin, Beth, Abby, Bridget, Carson, Brandon (sat across from me), Craig, Brad, Harry and Katie. It was a lot of fun. Brandon and I had thumb wars and Rhonda and I talked about him as “Ferrari.” Then it took him, Rhonda an Hannah to the school. We listened to the Vagina Song (by the Bloodhound Gang) and the bad touch. Brandon ended up paying for me because I only had a $20. And I dance with him, Harry, Hannah and everyone else. The music wasn’t very good but I had fun. I just felt like Brandon really likes me just a little bit more than the other girls. Sadly, Gwen was dancing with him the whole time, I told him about it while we were getting a drink and he had noticed, then after the dance him and I were walking to my car and he brought it up again almost saying like he wanted to dance with just me more and not her. Hehehe! So overall it was a good time with Ferrari, but I’m not sure how this is all going to turn out. We’ll just have to wait and see.
<3 Ava Estelle 😊
Present day me: I remember being so frustrated that Gwen was hogging Brandon during the dance and I didn’t have the confidence to just dance with him. Oh well, it’s a funny memory to look back on now. Morp was also the dance that was the anti-prom so we all wore random weird clothing and not dresses.

OMG! Today, well actually last night Tabitha, Delia, Rhonda, Hannah, Beth, and Courtney came up to the cabin for my all-nighter. So, we get up there and we start going for a walk, and “that guy” comes out on his four-wheeler and comes over to us! We all stop, and everyone knows that this is the guy I’ve had a crush on for like the past three years. So, Beth pushes me like over by him and yells my name. So, he asks us where we’re from and why we’re in this tiny town. And we just talked until it got like pitch black out. Yeah, we were all cold, so he went in to get something to eat and we went in to get warm. As soon as we got in and sat down he comes over and comes and eats with us!!! Yeah, he brought over a box of cheese crackers. After eating, we went to play LOL – Lines of Laughter. But we all just kept talking. Hannah was really flirting with him. But she didn’t even know she was doing it. I didn’t get mad at her. It wasn’t a big deal. And then we played BS. After that he had to leave. Then we went to bed. Well, no, it’s an all-nighter! We talked and played the circle game. That was really funny. Courtney fell asleep at 2:30 and everyone else fell asleep past 4. It was a lot of fun! Then in the morning, we went outside to take pictures, and to “get the mail” and he came out again and we talked to him some more. Hannah didn’t flirt as much. And I was standing right across from him in our circle! So, I think he was looking at me a lot. And he had a little five o’clock shadow, that was so cute! 😊 yeah, well then, we left. But that night was one AWESOME night!!! I will never forget it. Oh! And his name is Aaron! He’s a sophomore in a different high school from ours, and he has his driver’s license!
Present day me: this entry was a fun memory to revisit. This was the first time a guy was almost geographically close enough for me to interact with in person and possibly go out with or date. But he ended up going out with a different girl. It was probably because I lived in a different town full time, went to a different school. He dated a girl who went to his school and lived down the street from him/my cabin. My friends were funny around him too since they didn’t have much experience around guys. I remember staying up all night and then getting ready in the morning before taking pictures. I stayed in my pajamas, but I did my hair and made sure I looked good.

Yesterday (first day of summer vaca weekend) me, Meryl and mom walked downtown to the post office. On the way home we walked by the farmer’s market. It was pretty cool looking. We didn’t buy anything. Then that night me and Tabitha went to Hannah’s house for a party. We had a water fight. 8th graders and 7th graders against 6th graders! I got really wet! It was a ton of fun though! All the 6th graders had all the water guns and the 8th and 7th graders had cups of water. Haha! Then me, Tabitha, Rhonda, and Maria hung out, talked and danced to my CDs! Everyone danced and sung along! 😊
Then today, I went over to Tabitha’s mom’s house. We ran through her sprinkler and went over to a playground nearby. We ate subs for lunch. It was good!! I rode my bike home and mom took me over to Delia’s house. We watched Epic Movie (not that good) and had mac and cheese and smoothies! Now I’m home! And I should go to bed soon!
Present day me: Boy did I get into a lot of fun stuff when I was a kid. I was so lucky to have this many friends who wanted to do all these things together. I cherish these memories. They have made me who I am today to some degree.
