Update in the story of *Cinder & Matt*
This past weekend March 16th to 18th nearly a month from our last meeting, we met again. Matt took a train to Niagara and we picked him up. He'd spend the weekend with us, but our first stop was the on the spot decision to visit *Ripley's Believe it or not* we had a lot of fun there, I'd been before but they'd updated their exhibit quite a bit since then.
There is Matt walking through the vortex tunnel, it had spinning lights and made you almost fall over as you walked.
Afterwards we went back to my house and hung out in our craft room that had been made up as his room for his stay. We lay there curled up with lots of snacks (I bought him a kinderegg since he'd never had one *cough* *cough* America *cough* *cough*) and we watched movies, though tbh we were quite distracted, Spiderman homecoming was still good though. On Friday night we stayed up quite late unto I decided we should get some sleep so I went back to my room.
In the morning on Saturday I woke him up and we hung out, got a ride to the farmers market and that was really so much fun. We had lunch at a little shop there, I had a pulled pork sandwich and he has a chicken sandwich, they were delicious and I tipped the woman like $4. Afterwards we bought fresh lemonade and after that we had rolled icecream.
If you've never had it before you're missing out. But that's not the point, the cool part is the girl let us roll our own, she totally winked at Matt after which tbh was funny, she was so sweet, I tipped her too.
Now after that we bused to Little Ray's Reptile Zoo (which has many non reptiles as you can see) all the animals are rescues from people who tried to raise exotic animals but badly.
this goat loved people so much, it would come up to you and put it's head up so you'd pet it. We called him Happy Goat.
There I am basically bouncing because I fed a Llama and that was cool.
After the zoo (which moved around btw the animals aren't always on the go, they're well cared for) we went to my grandparents. Matt and I got to have dinner with them, they really loved him. We all played fast track, a marble game comparable to sorry. My mum & Pakke (grandpa) won 2/3 but we won the last round. After we went home and "watched movies" *cough* *cough* cuddled up *cough* *cough* we played the video game Matt bought me "Shadow of the Colossus" which is amazing btw. He showed me videos about it before and it was really cool. We usually just play Starwars the Old republic online cause we're generally limited. We're an awesome Sith team.
On Saturday night I didn't really want to leave his side but I wasn't allowed to sleep in the same room overnight. So we stayed up late and then slept about 3 hours until it was like 5am then I went to my room until like 9:30. On Sunday when we got up we decided to bake cookies, we found a recipe for chocolate chip and then changed it to add some white/milk mixed chocolate chips and one mini marshmellow, *ta da* s'mores chocolate chip cookies. After 2 batches of cookies finished we packed up and went back on the road. In Niagara we (including my Pakke who came along) all had dinner together with Matt's parents. Before they got there though Matt & I went in Niagara on the lake and Matt bought
Me sorbet, I had lemon he had chocolate. After dinner though he left for home. If you don't know our story, we met here on Plag** the first card about us in linked below.
Today was a good day. It rained yesterday so we didn't break 100 F and you can smell it; Charcoal grills fired up. Then At the school I work for got a visit from 5 brass players from the Phoenix Symphony.
