An All-Star Summer

To start off the summer, almost my entire family (about 60 people,) gathered at my house to celebrate my sister’s high school graduation. Pretty soon after we cleaned up the remnants of that party, we had even more visitors: Julia, Sophie, Kate, Katie, and Kristen from the softball team. We only got to hang out for a day, but it was fun showing them the sights of Vegas.
As part of my sister’s graduation present, we went traveled to Carson, California to the Warped Tour Concert. We spent all day at the concert, having fun and watching about 20 different bands play. As an added bonus, we visited my grandma and she ordered us pizza when we got back to her house totally exhausted. We also went to a concert at the Red Rock (a nice casino) and we got to see OK Go and The Cab (a local band) play while sitting in the pool.
A few weeks after that, we were back in California for the Futures All-Star and All-Star games. My brother, cousin and I had amazing seats on the left field line, and my dad had a seat in the press box directly behind home plate. And the National League won for the

first time in 11 years (approximately, I don’t really know, I wasn’t actually listening when my dad explained...) We also got tickets to Fan Fest, which is a huge convention-type thing for baseball fans. I got a mug signed by three women who played in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League!
That same week, my whole family met up with my uncle and went to Disneyland! We had a blast at the Happiest Place on Earth, and we hit all of the regular spots, like the Jungle Cruise and Space Mountain.

The rest of the summer I spent working my old job, and then starting a new one. In between all the work and travel, I did a lot of shopping and hanging out with friends. And of course working out for the upcoming softball season…
