Vacation with my dad June 15, 2008

My dad is going home tomorrow, and it has been a quite busy week. We didn’t have enough time at all, and with me being bit by a dog the second day he is here, we have gone through a lot. Especially because the dog didn’t have its vaccinations in place, and we were worried sick that I might had rabies (hundegalskab). The family who owned the dog had already put it to sleep, and the vet had harvested some brain tissue, so they could test the dog for rabies. Luckily the dog didn’t have rabies, so I didn’t need to go through the extremely painful rabies shots.

We also showed my dad the Niagara Falls. We were supposed to arrive there at 4 pm, but for some reason we got there at 10 pm. As soon as we got out of the car, it started to rain really bad, though, and we all got soaked. It quickly stopped raining, though, and we took some more pictures of it. Then it started raining badly again, and we decided to go to the car. We were on the Canada side of the Falls, so afterwards we went up to the sparkling tourist city right next to the falls, and spent a couple of hours up there before we went home.

My family also had a big surprise for me. They actually took me to see a Cleveland Indians Baseball game. I was so happy to see them for real, and I had a really good time. I was the only one who knew what was going on, since nobody else knew much about baseball, but they were happy that I had a good time. I was really getting into the game too, even though they lost, but that’s okay, it was a pretty eventful game anyway. Especially when Grady Sizemore scored a Homerun and everyone was on their feet, including me.

I hope my dad had a good vacation here, I certainly enjoyed having him here!

So close, so mad October 23, 2007

The indians lost against the Red Sox! I am so mad, especially because we had won 3 games in a row, and we only needed 1 more to proceed to the World Series. Instead, the Red Sox won 3 games in a row too, and proceeded. Lets just hope that the Colorado Rockies smash them down. That can learn them not to beat the Indians!

I really like watching Baseball. Some people think the sport is boring, but I think it is really cool. Right now, Cleveland Indians is playing against Red Sox. In Baseball you play your opponent in best out of 7, and right now we have won 2 and lost one. If we win against the Red Sox, we are qualified for the World Series! It would be so cool if we win and we could enter the World Series. Until now it’s just hoping and watching every game.
