Day 11: Grand Forks, North Dakota. Friday, June 26, 2009.

Day 11: Grand Forks, North Dakota. Friday, June 26, 2009.

 Early this afternoon city of Grand Forks issued a tornado warning. Around 6:00pm we heard the city's emergency loud siren sound thro out the city, a warning signed of tornado heading our way.
6:30pm- Clouds started to formed above us.
7:00pm-  Rain, heavy dark cloud is approaching, and warm air started to swirl around the area.  Minutes later, rain started to get stronger and cool air increasingly swirling above us.
By this time I decided to take my video camera out and video taped the storm.

I overheard someone in the hotel lobby said, tornado did in fact landed several blocks from our hotel. Scary!

No worries we are doing okay.

Here's the beginning of the tornado ...

Day 8: Grand Forks, North Dakota

Tuesday, June 23, 2009


Me and my Mom had breakfast and it was good. Then me, and Mom went back in to our room. I sat on my chair, and watched tv. Then I asked my Mom if we can walk to Michaels Arts and Craft store. So me and Mom got dressed to go to the store. So then I was doing my hair, I went in the bathroom to brush my teeth. Then my nickles got caught on the bathroom handle and broke to pieces. But Mom said, we can get another one.

(I took this picture myself)
So we went off and walked to Micheals Art and Craft store. First, we ate at Jimmy John Deli, then went to Game Stop. I bought a game for my DS called: Ballet Magic. I put my game in my bag.

Then we walked around and went to Old Navy, but we were just looking around. Then I saw a pretty dress, and a nice shirt for 4th of July, but Mom said that I can only have one. I decided I wanted the dress.

We went to another store, (I forgot the name of the store)and it was a little bit boring. So then we walked over to Micheals Arts and Craft store and bought some stuff.

We went to Target and had a drink, and rest from walking. I was playing my new DS game, but it was hard so we returned it and got a new one. After that we went grocery shopping. After that we walked back home.
While in the room I learned my States and then my Dad came in. We needed to eat, but first we went to Office Max. After OfficeMax we went to McDonald's. Walked home after we ate and I went to sleep.

I took these pictures by using my own camera.

The End!!!

Then we were trying to find a place to clean our clothes. So I don't know if we found a place to clean our clothes.

We went back to the hotel, and as usual, I swam.

After my swim I went back to our room and went to bed.

The End.

What's the difference?

Today I woke up, put my robe on and then me, my Dad, and my Mom went to breakfast. After we ate breakfast we went back in our room in the hotel. When we were in the hotel room I got bored, so I was playing my Dad's iPod Touch. I watched videos, and played games. Then, Dad asked if we want to see a movie? So I said, "yes!" Can we watch Land of the Lost? So we drove to the movie theater... and the movie was great!

Then .. I went swimming.
