We drove from Spearfish, South Dakota, to Bismarck North Dakota. It was a 5 hour drive, but we had to count it as 6 because of the time change. When we got there we went to Subway and got food. Then we headed to SIMLE Middle School where we would be performing. We got set up very quickly so we had a ton of time left. Grace and I went to get our books that we had to read for school. Bronny had a hard time making herself do her reading about the Greeks, but Grace was allowed to punch her if she ever so dared to glance at her phone. After a while of doing our thing, we met Austin and Sheldon. They were the cutest little boys and they both wore glasses. Bronny and I got ready in the bathroom again. It was show time before we knew it! The show was good. The palace scene was cute because Austin and another boy came up on stage after we had everyone up there. They wanted to be a part of the palace too, so Grace declared them the rugs. J After signing autographs, and taking the set down we were off for another hour and ten minute drive to Jamestown, North Dakota. We would be staying at a hotel there for 2 nights. We wouldn’t have to pack all of our things right away so it’s nice. When we got to Jamestown we checked in, and had to take our suitcases up 2 staircases since there weren’t any elevators L Mrs. Wooley’s key didn’t work, and we all thought we could hear noises in her room. We went back to the front desk so she could get a new room and key. After getting situated, we headed to Hugo’s supermarket to get dinner for the night, breakfast, and lunch for tomorrow. Grace was very excited to see that there was an entire section of the market dedicated to only gluten free foods. We pretty much went our separate ways getting different things. I got 3 boxes of bagel bites because they’re so delicious! After the market, we went back to the hotel to eat. I was trying to find something on T.V to watch and to our surprise, Dance Moms was on! We watched it, and then Dance Moms Reunion was on. I ended up falling asleep because I was really tired due to not having a good sleep schedule. Grace fell asleep next, and then of course Bronny was last. LOL but it was a good day. Thumbs up to life. J
Signing off, Abbie P.

Well, after our ‘little’ incident/adventure at 3:30 am we basically slept in later than usual causing us to miss breakfast. Grace and Bronny slept really well, while I on the other hand was not so lucky. As if being woken up at 3:30 wasn’t enough, we AGAIN got woken up by someone knocking on our door! I got up just as the cleaning man let himself in. I had to tell him that we were not checking out until noon. After that I got moody…Oh wait, that’s every day J BUT ANYWAY we took our sweet little time getting ready and gathered our things and loaded everything in the ‘ole Caravan. We stopped at the Petro store to get food and gas since we hadn’t eaten yet. I got 2 bags of skittles and a bag of jalapeño chips. Bronny got a weird looking pastry, veggie straws, and a mountain dew. Grace just got a box of Mike ‘n Ikes. We eat healthy ya know? We were off on the road again to Casper! It was about 3 hours, but it seemed to go by really fast. As usual Bronny watched Glee, and as usual I’m not surprised. I had some nice bonding time with my boyfriend (my iPod) LOL while Grace slept, and played on her iPad. Later we stopped at a really cool rest stop, but only Grace and Mrs. Wooley got out. We arrived at the Parkway Plaza Hotel in no time. Mrs. Wooley took the bottom floor while we girls got the top 4th floor. We took the elevator and it looked totally sketchy inside. It made weird noises and when the door opened on our floor we saw that it hadn’t completely stopped. It freaked us all out so then we decided to take the stairs next time. After getting everything in our room, we came up with a brilliant idea to take pictures of all the preparations connected with a fire. It was really fun! We are such funny people. Ahhhh. Soon it was time to take off for show time! We performed at the high school and a very nice sir helped us load/unload the van. We got our very own dressing room downstairs complete with Broadway looking lights! While we were downstairs chilling/waiting, a woman with her daughter came down to talk to us. And talk to us some more until we had to get ready. Even though the audience wasn’t as big tonight, the kids were still cute as buttons and loved us. We ate dinner at another Italian restaurant called Bonco’s. BUT it took forever to get there. The roads were so confusing, and it seemed darker than usual. Mrs. Wooley hit a couple curbs, but the Caravan is tough. We ended up finding the restaurant yay! It was very cute with colorful lights. It looked homey. I wasn’t even mad eating Italian 2 nights in a row. It’s just so good! Of course we laughed, and were sad because the waiter wasn’t Josh. After dinner we headed back to the hotel to do our thang. Twitter, Facebook, and shower. Today was good. Life is good. Okay. Oh, and I love mountains. Bye. Abbie

After our little fiasco in Laramie, upon arriving at the Parkway Plaza in Casper we decided to take a few precautions.
Fire Safety page in our guest book
1.) Locate 2 exits
4.) In case of fire, act quickly
5.) If the fire is not in your room, leave if you can
6.) Never use an elevator during a fire
7.) If the room door is hot do not open it
8.) Crawl low in smoke
After our little adventure last night (well, this morning) we took it upon ourselves to add a ninth rule. . . .
9.) If there is no fire DO NOT USE THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER.
It will create a chemical haze that everyone will THINK is a fire and cause a panic at the hotel.
This PSA has been brought to you by the Lamb Caravan. Thank you for your attention.
