The Lake and Jumping off Cliffs

My family took a daycation to the lake and we rented a pontoon boat. The weather was a little cold but otherwise it was a beautiful and relaxing day.  These photos are either mine or my mum’s. All editing was done by yours truly.

I jumped off a cliff. Standing on the edge was terrifying. I looked down at the water fifteen feet below and it seemed much further than that. Every cell in my body was screaming at my brain, “Don’t you even dare! Nope nope nope, you will die!” But my silly reckless brain said, “but it’ll be fun!” and so I jumped. And it was fun. Check that off my bucket list! Apparently I unconsciously covered my nose and my eyes the first time I jumped! haha!

My dad was insaneeee and jumped from the 30 foot cliff. Twice.  I was a little less insane and jumped from the 15 foot cliff three times and a ten foot cliff twice. After the first time it wasn’t quite as intense but it was certainly still terrifying to say the least!

Here is a post cliff-jumping selfie that I took after jumping from the cliff.  We also brought Duke along and he had a great time! He really loves to swim.

I was so cold. This is my “I’m so cold,” face.  Mum also got a picture of me wrapped in a blanket because I was so cold.

At the dock there were a gazillion disgusting cod fish and they were gross. Rachel is trying to touch one in this picture.



It was Rachel’s birthday so we had cupcakes and she opened some of her presents on the boat.

The lake is so relaxing. Rachel and I went out on a raft and tube to tan and nap. Lucas decided to wear a life vest as pants cause he’s a ridiculous goof. !!

Dad skied and he’s really good! Lucas or Rachel (I forget who) got some really great pictures of him. They look professional or something.

The siblings took turns riding behind the boat on the inner tube. It was a blast! These are pictures of my youngest brother, Jonathan, and myself.

We live in a beautiful world.



The other day I hung out with my good friend Katie Conrad and we went to Hollidaysburg. We stopped at a cute little coffee and crepes shop and a cold girl with a tattoo sleeve sold me a mocha frappé and a brownie with walnuts and chocolate chunks in it. They had fresh blueberries out front and  I bought a pint, shared some with Katie, and ate the rest of them within the hour.  I also saw a guy who looked like Kip from Napoleon Dynamite.


Here is a picture of me eating blueberries and drinking a mocha frappé.


We also found a super awesome bike.


And a Church which says “Worship God” on the front of the building.


And an ominous prison.

I wanted to take blueberries to the prisoners but Katie was against the idea.


We hiked up to Chimney Rock Park and climbed on the chimney rocks. Here is a picture of Katie conquering the mountain.


This is a very small part of the incredible view which can be seen from the highest of the chimney rocks.


I am standing on the edge of a cliff pretending to be a queen surveying her domain.

Call me Queen Converse cause I like converse shoes.


Here’s a little more of the view. Stunning.


Katie took all of these super awesome pictures 🙂




Today I went horseback riding for the second time this summer and it was epic. I rode bareback on Sweetheart who is a baby sort of. She’s actually like five years old but she acts like a baby cause she’s really high energy and inexperienced. I almost fell off because mum rode under a tree and the branch scraped her helmet and the sound scared Sweetie so she rared up and jumped five feet slantways. But I managed to stay on and I am quite proud of that fact.

Also Sweetie is beautiful.

Photobooth Fun

My parents and I made a photobooth for our family reunion. Here are the results of that! (Disclaimer: These photos were taken by my cousin, Shelly Mohr.)


This is me being a stuck up rich person who loves green balloons.


My mum and me. Aren’t we cute?!


Little bro photo-bombed the photo-booth.


My dad, my sister, and myself.


Dad looks like a Scottish man. Oh wait; he IS a Scottish man!


My favorite by far: a photo of the siblings. This pretty much sums us up rather accurately!

That was a fun time!

More on the family reunion to come!
