Wisconsin And Re-Blogifying

For the past 2 weeks have been so awesome.  I’ve been in Lake Geneva Wisconsin for one week. For the other week I’ve been spending time with family. It was been really fun.  Since I went to Ontario, there have been a lot of things I really liked. From the past two weeks I’ll narrow it down to two favourite things out of everything I’ve done.

Jelly Belly Factory –  My mom had flown back to Saskatchewan before me.  I went to Wisconsin with my aunt and my two cousins.  One of the places we went was the Jelly Belly Factory.  Even with my braces still on and not being able to  get like literally everything, it was still really fun. The tour was a train ride and videos on how Jelly Belly jelly beans are made. My favourite parts were the paintings that were made entirely out of Jelly Belly jelly beans. The process is a bit hard to explain but I will try to explain it the best I can. First, you trace your design in pencil. Then, you glaze a clear glue over the Jelly Beans. Finally, you use these chopstick kind of things and push the bean into place. The next was the store when the tour is finished. I never knew there were so many Jelly Beans. Some had me like ‘Ick” and ‘Ewww”. Some of these Jelly Beans were Dog Food flavoured, Skunk Spray and Baby Wipes. I bought some Jelly Belly jelly beans for my mom. (I was so tempted to eat them though).

HAHA MOM !!! LOOK WHERE I AM!!!

High Ropes Course- We also went to a high ropes course.  I did like the course, I did… I really did. The high ropes were fifteen to thirty-two feet high. The instructors were really nice too. But, I learned something about myself. No, it’s not heights, or else I wouldn’t go on any rides at the fair let alone even go. I have rope-snapophobia.  I was doing fine at first, but then I got a little too adventurous. I went on one part, but I got a little too shaky and just lost it. I came down.  My cousins on the other hand, were like all over the place. My older cousin was especially. She went on a really difficult one.

I have an announcement to make:

I’ve been thinking long and hard about this. Now that I’m going into the seventh grade (for me, it’s a shocker) I feel like I need to ‘Re-Blogify’ my whole blog.  I want to redo my blog to make it different. I’ll still do life experiences but that will only be once a while.

Keep an eye out on how my blog is going to change.  Let me tell you, there’s gonna be a lot of changes.  Let me know what you think when you see.
