chairs to stand in. Then I washed their hands, and went into the pantry to find some chocolate chips. Amazingly, we did not have any! But we did have about three bags of butterscotch chips. I saw that we had all the ingredients for the recipe on the back, so now we were making butterscotch "cookies". Well, more like butterscotch brownies, because it said to spread the mix out in a pan. I measured the ingredients and let Leah and Sam pour it in. Sam started looking in the bowl, his head halfway in. "Don't do that Sam!" I said. "Can I look at it?" he asked. I told him he could, but he couldn't stick his face in. He smiled and put his face over bowl. I moved the bowl away. When it was time to blend in the butterscotch chips, I let Leah and Sam pour the chips in. Leah spilled some, so I told her to pick them up and put them in the bowl. Sam grabbed a handful and said, "I just put them in my mouth." Finally, the cookies were in the oven. They turned out great! Everyone liked them except for Leah, who only tried the dough, but not the cooked cookie. If you want to make them, look on the back of the butterscotch chips bag!!

And about the dog... Well, yesterday Julie, Mama and I ran eleven miles!!!! That is the farthest we have ever gone!! Before we started (we were in a neighborhood) we saw a friendly dog. So we petted him, and started off. That dog followed us! And he kept on following! Of course, he would stop and sniff here and there, but he would always catch up with us. Before we had gone really far, someone drove up and asked us if the dog was ours. We said he wasn't, he was just following us! The lady who stopped us said that her grandson, who was in the car and looked about five, thought that we were taking the dog away. He had been feeding it and playing with it for a few days. We told him that when we left, the dog would probably go back to his house. Anyway, we planned to run in a few different neighborhoods, and we didn't want the dog to follow because he may get lost, and because of cars. We thought that he would eventually get tired and go away. He didn't stop!! We decided that the dog would follow us out of the neighborhood and back again. We could call him away from cars. That is just what happened!! THAT DOG FOLLOWED US THE WHOLE ELEVEN MILES!!!! Well, almost. When we passed some children, the dog went to them. We soon noticed that he wasn't following us any more, and we had to get him back to his neighborhood! Thankfully, we didn't have to go far to find the dog. We called him away, and he followed us all the way back!! Good job, doggy!

Two days ago we drove to Jackson to visit Uncle Russ and Aunt Megan. We spend the night with them one night. We went to a resturant called Kyoto. We watched the food being made. It was great!!! At first I was a little scared that the man who was cooking was going to burn himself as he flipped the tools around! But it was fine, and the food was so good. We got some really funny pictures of Clay!! After that we went to Bops, an ice cream place.
Here is the chef cooking our food
Here is Clay, who was trying to see how much rice he could hold with his chopsticks. Then he got an idea of how to hold a lot. He put his vegetable across his chopsticks then piled rice on top. He is so silly.
Clay was begging me to take a picture of this. He did the same thing with his chopsticks, but this time, the chopsticks are in his mouth. What a trick.
Me, Aunt Megan, and Julie at Aunt Megan's house with our pajamas on, about to leave. We got home late!
