Prez Fest Pics and Vids

I got to go to the President's Day Festival and it didn't rain again all night! I had such a blast! All the rides I went on with my sister were so much fun. It was an unforgettable night. I hope Jacoby doesn't mind me putting up a couple movies as well as pictures. Don't worry, they're really good ones.
This thing was called the Ring of Fire. Cool, huh? This is my kind of ride. It's a roller-coaster going in vertical circles. So much fun. We go on it every year.
After this ride, The Orbiter, was over, the strap-in guy offered to take our picture. Alright, pop quiz, to see how well you guys know me. Can you tell who's who between us twins? (Hint: what color are our clothes?)
Alright, so have you theme-park goers ever had an Elephant's Ear? I never had, until last night. Don't worry, it didn't come from an actual elephant. It's just fried dough and powdered sugar on top. I also shared pizza and fries with Annette. And we never threw up on the rides!

Alright, here's the first movie you'd enjoy. This is me riding a mechanical bull for the first time in my life. Have you ever done this? It's so exhilarating! I stayed on for a good 45 seconds too.
This is a picture of me after I rode the mechanical bull (see the sticker?) and after I was conned into throwing darts at balloons for $10. I won this stuffed penguin after all my trouble. I named him Prezley, after the President's Day Fest, or after Elvis Presley, whichever you prefer.

I wonder if this is good quality? We went on the Yo-Yo and Annette had it so easy that she decided to take a movie while she was on. It's almost as if you're riding with her!
This is the view you get of the entire festival at the top of the Ferris Wheel. That was the ride that the whole family went on. You can see the moon up there, right? It was yellow. I had such an awesome time at the Prez Fest. Probably the best I've ever had.

You won't believe this!

Yay! This is Bettina Levy speaking. This is my first ever post on J. N. Future Author's Picture Perfect. (Hi, Jacoby! ^,^ You can edit this out later. Just wanted to say hi.) I kept wondering what I would put up here as a first post and today I found the perfect candidate. It's a photo I just took today! See, my mom and brother came home from the farmers market and came back with a giant, prize-winning zucchini!
Here it is as compared to my own arm! That's a cubit.
It is SOOO big compared to Adam's sweet hamster, Hazel.
Look at that! It's like, 3 times as long as her and twice as thick. That is, in size, not in intelligence. Hazel is actually the brightest of all the hamsters we've kept over the years. She's so cute, isn't she?
Anyway, can you believe this is a zucchini? I thought it was a green squash when I first saw it! I wonder how we'll fit it inside the fridge!
(Well Jacoby, whaddaya think?)

Duo Authors!


I can't believe it! This blog is now duo written! ^.^ My friend Bettina and I had a trade off, I could post on her review blog if she could post on this one! ^.^ Thanks Bettina! I can't wait to write, and see things written!
