Hi! Since the last time we updated we've made a few changes to our blog. We changed our template, we got a ticker, and we got a word cloud. BTW- If you're ever thinking about changing your template, there's some really nice ones at - www.blogger-templates.blogspot.com
Yesterday we went walking around this really nice park in Bangor. It was really fun. Then we went shopping for a new computer desk. Plus, last night we went walking around the duck pond in Newtownards with David and his family. After that they came back to our house for a while.
We did school today. And also today I was designing a leaflet for David's presentation in June.
We'll soon be getting ready to eat dinner and then get ready to go to church.
On Thursday we'll be having a bbq with some friends from our church.
I better go for now,
Grace

Hi, everyone! We have been pretty busy lately. Yesterday, we went to Shatley Springs and ate breakfast, then we went to a cheese factory in West Jefferson, and then walked on a trail on a mountain near there. It was a lot of fun! Next week, we will be flying back to Belfast next Tuesday and get back on Wednesday morning. Lydia

Today, we went to the Lazy 5 Ranch. We went with our Mamaw, Papaw, and some more of our family . There was 14 of us altogether. It was a really neat place. We got to go on a hour long wagon ride. We got to pet a lot of animals. Grace fed a giraffe! I will put more about it soon. Well we are grilling out right now. So I'd better go for now. Lydia

They were really neat. Thank you everyone for the birthday comments. Grace and I had really good birthdays. We will be posting pictures when we get back to Newtownards. Well I'd better go for now.
