I love eating breakfast, don’t you? I especially love having smoothies for breakfast. What is your favorite breakfast food? Now image that you get to sit down and eat breakfast with the one person you love and admire most in the world. It can be a family member, friend, a famous person; it doesn’t matter.

In 2011 I had one of the best summers ever. I got to know some really amazing people that summer, who also happened to be apart of my small group. One of the things our small group did was go to Cedar Point in Ohio. Now that was fun! Do you like roller coasters? I love roller coasters. Cedar Point had 17 roller coasters. Of course I didn’t get to go on all of them, but we had a great time.
