We had a very interesting trip to and from MIlwaukee. ...Very interesting.
On the way there, we took a bathroom/water/people-watching break. We went to the Lake Forest Oasis. I've never been to an oasis before. It is quite an experience. It's also people-watching heaven.
On the way home, we saw a number of interesting things. First of all, we saw an Alaska license plate. That must have been quite the drive. That trip alone would have probably been the same amount of miles as we have on our car total.
Another interesting thing about the trip home was all of the hawks flying around. You don't often see a hawk around here, but it seemed like every few minutes on the highway there were hawks flying above us.
Okay, all of that other stuff is pretty interesting, but I've gotta say, this takes the gold.
We were on the highway coming home, and we'd been in the car for awhile. I was starting to get tired, so I said "okay everyone, I think I'm going to fall asleep now, good night!" and I put my head back to fall asleep. Then I saw something fall on top of a building beside the highway. I picked up my head and said "oh my gosh, was that a person that just fell on that building?" Everyone started laughing and saying "Yeah, Maura, that was a person that just randomly fell from the sky on top of the building." "Really Maura? No, that wasn't a person." Then we all looked up and they stopped talking. There were people with parachutes falling from the sky, one after the other. They were skydivers, lots of them. I thought they were awfully close to the highway, but it was pretty cool. And I think I can safely say that I will never see skydivers falling from the sky while driving down the highway again.
Welcome to Maura's Blog!
Hi, it's Maura! I have a dog, I run cross country, and you no longer have to read this blog because that pretty much sums up everything on here.
Check out my front page to see the books I want to read, if you want too, I can't force you to but you can if you want, well I don't know now I confused myself now so never mind.
As you can see, Dusty helps with the pictures. :D Thanks for being so cute, Dusty! Also, don't get confused. Dusty had darker fur when she was little, but she was tan underneath! Nope, I don't have two dogs.
The pictures on the top of this page and on my homepage are pictures I took at the Botanic Gardens, and I thought they went well with this theme, so.... yep!
