Travels With Grace #5: Texas

Hiiii, fellow travelers! It’s Grace again, with our last post from Texas! A big thank-you goes out to AGs in Alaska’s Texan friend, who helped her take some of these pics. Now, onto the photostory!

I am Grace, the fearless adventurer

Today I am on a search

A search to find a dangerous beast of Texas

DSC_0233

The beasts are hiding today

DSC_0235

I must remain silent and still

DSC_0228

And creep stealthily

DSC_0237

They hide amongst the shadows

DSC_0238

And stalk their prey

DSC_0268

I remain unnoticed

DSC_0239

Waiting and watching

DSC_0257

Every snap of a twig

Is an animal’s footfall

DSC_0246

Every breath of the wind

DSC_0285

Is the pant of a beast

I am Grace, the fearless wanderer

Where are they today?

Still hiding

I am unable to find a wild beast of Texas

And so I will return

Aha! What is that I spy?

A wild beast of Texas!

Grace, the fearless adventurer, has succeeded in her mission

And so another journey ends, my friends. We have returned to Alaska. I hope you have all enjoyed “traveling” with me, Grace – the fearless adventurer.

Travels With Grace #3: Texas

Heyyyyyy, guys! Yes, we’re still in Dallas – and this time at the Dallas World Aquarium. There are so many cool animals here! Anything from manatees to sawfish to tarantulas . . . okay, those weren’t very cool. In fact, I avoided eye contact completely.

And to brighten your day, some funny things AGs in Alaska said on this trip!

“We have to pay sales tax here!” (There’s no sales tax in Alaska.)

“I’ve forgotten what it’s like to see houses with no driveways.” (Those aren’t really a thing in AK, either.)

“THOSE TREES ARE GREEN!!!!!!!” (And this one is pretty self-explanatory.)

Travels With Grace #1: Texas

Hola, y’all! Grace here! See how I combined a Spanish word and a southern phrase into one sentence? I’m so cool!

Scratch that. I’m actually really, really hot right now.

Why?

We are in Texas!

As you hopefully already got from the title of this post.

I got such an overwhelming amount of enthusiasm from my last Travels With Grace series, in which I went to Washington State, that I decided to do the exact same thing for Texas!

Instead of staying in one town, AGs in Alaska and I will be traveling to several parts of the state. We just got into Dallas today after a total of eight hours in a plane. (AGs in Alaska hasn’t slept since the day before yesterday, but she’s wide awake. It’s beyond me.) I’m going to keep the other cities a surprise for now, but until then, you can view my adorableness in these epic pictures AGs in Alaska took!

Aquí!

So, those photos were taken in the backyard of the house we’re staying in. I hope y’all liked them!

One more quick announcement about this series: unlike last time, where I was in all of the photoshoots/stories, I am going to be more like a tour guide this time, and post lots of pictures of what we do. There will be more photoshoots of me, I promise, but also lots of pictures of the cool stuff we go do.

Bye for now!

Grace

From AGs in Alaska: I sincerely apologize for the no posting on Monday, I was super busy getting ready for vacation!

Travels With Grace: Washington, Day #6

Grace here! IT’S THE LAST DAY OF MY TRAVEL BLOG!!!!!! WAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!! I have this sweet post for you in which I say goodbye to my cousins.

IMG_3120

“Bye, guys,” I say sadly to my cousins. They are leaving to go home today (they live in a different area of Washington, and we came to my aunt’s house to meet up this week). I will also be leaving tomorrow to go back to Alaska.

IMG_3122

“We’re really going to miss you,” Cara tells me.

IMG_3123

“I’m going to miss you too, Care-Bear,” I say, giving her a hug.

IMG_3124

“Bye, Grace,” I tell my next cousin. “I hope we can visit again soon.”

She nods, her eyes watering.

IMG_3125

“I’m really sorry you broke your leg, Lea,” I say to the oldest of all my cousins. “Get well soon!”

“Thanks!” she replies.

IMG_3128

My three almost-sisters walk over to the gate dejectedly. “Bye, Grace!” they call. “See you soon!”

IMG_3131

“Bye!” I shout, as they march down the steps (Lea hopping, of course). “Love y’all!”

And . . .

Cut!

Okie-dokie, that’s all for Travels With Grace for now! I have had so much fun traveling and hanging out with my cousins, and I hope you enjoyed meeting them!

Love,

Grace

Travels With Grace #5: Washington

HI GUYSSSSSSS! WHERE WAS I YESTERDAY, YOU ARE WONDERING????? My mom said I needed to not use the computer for a couple of days, so that’s why. And on Monday I completely forgot until 11 PM was run over by a herd of elephants and was in the hospital!!!!! IKR, CRAZY!!!

ANYwho, here is the fifth installement of Grace’s travel series! Enjoy!

Ignore the grainy iPad pictures. I did not bring the right camera charger with me on my vacay.

IMG_3105

Lea is in the hospital after having broken her leg falling out of the crabapple tree.

IMG_3106

“Hey, Lea,” Cara says. “How are you doing?”

IMG_3107

“Hey, Care-Bear,” Lea replies tiredly. “I just, ya know, have a broken leg. Not much else going on at the moment . . .”

IMG_3108

Lea points to her lower leg, which is wrapped in a white cast.

IMG_3109

“Yeah, we’re all super sorry you got hurt,” Grace says sweetly.

IMG_3112

“Do you want to try walking?” I ask my injured cousin.

IMG_3113

Cara and I help Grace to her feet. “Why don’t you try walking down the hall?” I suggest.

IMG_3117

It takes her a little practice, but Lea hops down the hall on her shiny silver crutches.

Okay, that’s all! Sorry, it’s kind of short. The very last part will post on Monday, and then I have a super fun post featuring a SPECIAL GUEST next Thursday! You guys will L-O-V-E it. See ya then!

Hey, little macarons! Everyone keeps calling people food names. And macarons are French, so . . .

IMG_3080

Mes cousines and I are chilling in the backyard. Cara is doing gymnastics.

IMG_3081

She’s so talented!! McKenna would really get along with her.

IMG_3083

IMG_3086

IMG_3088

We’re about halfway through the visit, which is super sad. 😦 Wah.

IMG_3090

“Hey, guys! It’s Lea here!”

IMG_3091

“Look at me!!!!!! Whee!!!”

IMG_3094

“Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!”

IMG_3095

“OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!”

IMG_3097

“LEA!!!!!!”

Dun dun dun. Left you at a cliffhanger, huh? And you have to wait a whole entire week for Part #5, because on Thursday is our Q&A answers! Meaning . . . you only have a few days left to ask questions. So get to it! See y’all next week!
