Yeah, for some reason, Caleb is in jail. Just kidding. We went to field trip to a art gallery. It was made in an old jail in Albany and we went with Aaryn. It was made out of brick that had carving that told who made the brick. Most of them were made by M or K. There was a scratching in the wall of someones name. I always wondered how they did that. With their fingernails? the gallery was as about contemporary art. After that, we went to a gas station to eat lunch. After that we went to a place where they had malts. I didn’t try one (I wasn’t hungry) but I got some candy.
Aaryn came over for two weeks. A few of my favorite things that we did were:
He was here for 2 Sundays so we got to go to airsoft twice. The first time was not too hot and a little bit cloudy. But the second one was too hot. It was still fun though. He used my AEG and I used my sniper. The first week the Lubbock team was there and we whooped them a few times. The second week was just AA.
We got Prime Time passes where we got to try everything once: lazar tag, go carts, bumper cars, race car thingy, and some other stuff. The go carts were the best. Caleb was ahead most of the time but right before the end, I passed him.
We did a lot of other thing but those were my favorite.
We lost our hockey game this week. Can you guess what the score was? It was quite interesting. I got an assist and a two minute break in the box. I didn’t get the penalty. The person who did left the game because he thought the ref made a bad call. So I had to take it for him. Here are some pictures.
Try to guess the score.

I read in a book that Canada 60% of the lakes in the world. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake. That’s more than all the countries in the world combined. So I researched about lakes in Texas. There is only one lake in all of Texas that is NOT man made. It is called Lake Caddo. All of the other seven lakes (just kidding, there is more than that) in Texas are man made. The natural lake is in northeast Texas. The biggest lake is in southeast Texas and is 114,000-acres. Hmmm, might be big enough for more than two people, eh? Most of the lakes are fresh water, but there are a few that are salt water. There was no web site that had a list of just the salt water lakes.
There are 169 lakes in Texas, if I counted right. That is not that many for such a large state. http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/fishboat/fish/recreational/lakes/lakelist.phtml. There are at least 100 lakes in Alberta. I couldn’t find a complete list. It says there are 89 but the list is incomplete. Nova Scotia has the most lakes in Canada which is 142 (again, if my counting is right). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_lakes_of_Alberta. Nova Scotia is approximately 21,000 sq. miles (not meters). Texas is approximately 270,000 sq. miles. Texas is more than 10 times bigger than Nova Scotia. There would be 1,420 lakes in Nova Scotia if it were the same size as Texas. That was counting the number of lakes there are, not the size. But you have heard it said, “Everything is bigger in Texas” (except snowmen).
Here are some pics of the game. We won 4 to 2 and I am #11 on the red team.
whoa..... nice picture

These are the places we are going to go biking for the summer. They are all around the same area about 1 hour from Denver. It has been a long time since I was on my down hill bike.
The people at the bike shops that I called said that Winter Park had smooth runs. Maybe we will save this one for last when dad is high on advil
Sulvista has hard short runs. I think we might have to do this one middle.
Keystone has hard long runs so I think we should do this one first.
After losing all the hockey games up until now, WE WON!!!!!!! 6 to 5. I was on the red team and I’m in the middle of the picture. I joined late and our team had never won a game so this was exiting. Aaryn took the picture.
