Enchantment Resort Tennis Camp


When we first got to Sedona we had one day until our tennis camp. I had been really nervous before but had a great time. We played for about six hours every day.

When we got there we usually warmed up hitting and then ran a little and stretched. Then we would go to a court with our group. There were three different groups that you were put into. There were three coaches and you rotated between all the courts. All the coaches worked on different things with you, and at 12:00 we went to lunch.

There was a different lunch each day. That first day we had sandwiches. My favorite lunch was probably the spaghetti with garlic bread and pudding. After lunch we would go out again and warm up again and then keep playing. We played from 9:00 to 4:00.

On our last day we had a pool party with ice cream. It was really fun, and I had a great time at the tennis camp.



frisbeeToday in the evening we went to the park with the frisbee. We threw it around a little. And then my dad made up a game which we decided to call frisbee blitz. It was really fun and a great workout.

There were two on each team. The way to get points is if you catch it from your teammate or if you are on the other team then you try to smack it down. We played to ten. We switched out taking breaks, and we played until it was dark.

I really liked smacking it down because I am not too good of a catcher.` I loved running around.

Anna Hall

Anna Hall is my best friend. I have known her since I was born.

She traveled like us in a motor home. She has three brothers who are my brothers best friends.

She is three months older than me and I love playing with her. I love talking and giggling with her. She is so fun to be around. I get so excited when I get to see her. And I really like pretending with her. We both have a doll named sage – they are Corolle dolls. She is an amazing girl, and I am so happy that she is my friend.

Here are some pictures of us from last year when we spent time together in California and Oregon, one from a long time ago, and one from last month when I saw her in Texas.

Gold Beach

Gold beach was really cool. Some of my dads college friends invited us. The day after we got there we went to the beach. Tt was really fun. The boys played beach soccer, and I found rocks that looked like things in your body.

The second day we went to a park and played basketball, and we also went to a place called secret beach. It had a water fall and a cool rock that we climbed on. Then high tide came in, and we had to move our stuff back a little bit. I liked playing in the waves, too.

Then we cooked hot dogs, and I threw a watermelon peel into the wave and tried to find it again. And then on the third day we went to  a place called Indian Sands. You could roll down a hill of sand. It was fun, but it was windy and the sand got in my mouth and in my eyes.

Then we went to a pizza place and my dad gave us quarters to play in the arcade I played a bouncy ball game where you never lost. I got three bouncy balls. After the pizza place we went to the basket ball court, and then mom went and got ice cream. We didn’t tell the boys. Then we went to the store that the mom was at because I had to go to the restroom. Then we went home and ate ice cream.


We found a house in Windsor that we could stay at for two weeks. It was really cool. I had to water her plants though. She had a playhouse outside that I liked to play in. We went to San Francisco a lot.

My dad bumped into someone he knew from college. Then we decided to set up a playdate. We went to there house, and then some ether time we went to a beach with them. We got all wet. We were freezing.  We made sand castles and my brother made a lego guy. Then we went to another beach, but it had rocks in the sand but we climbed a big rock there. It was fun. Then we went to a popsicle place – it was really good.

I also got to see my best friend Anna. We went to Alcatraz and the Golden gate bridge, and she slept over at my house one time. We played in the play house together and dressed up. We had a lot of fun. I liked it.

Then the lady who we rented the house from came back we hung out with them for a little bit. we walked to the popsicle shop again. we had a park in our neighborhood, so we went there a lot and played blind mans tag and ultimate tag.  I liked doing the monkey bars there.

Then we went to find geo caches, and then we went on a hike to find a geo cache, and then we went back to her house and then we went back to there house and played a game called dutch blitz. It was fun. Then we went to bed, and in the morning before we left a hot air balloon landed on our street right in front of our house!

The Badlands National Park in South Dakota was a beautiful surprise. We climbed on the rocks and hiked up a trail. We met a family from New York who knew some friends of ours.

Riding a Segway

We spent a day at the Science Museum. We watched a few live demonstrations, a planetarium show, and rode a Segway.
