Europe in the Morning - *Helsinki* Is it not always dawn in Helsinki in the wintertime? The pale, transparent sky and the slanting sunlight give it that luster of morning at most ...

As soon as I was out of class on Friday it was time for the party to begin. If you didn't know this weekend was Family Weekend at Ball State University so My Mom, Dad, and Austin were all down here for my birthday. On Friday we ate at Woodworth together with Adam, Austin, and John. After we ate we went and waited in line to watch Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince at Pruis. That lasted until midnight and then they departed for the hotel and I went and hung out with the Nappanee Elite for a while. In the morning we would share continental breakfast and then we went tailgating. We thought there would be more excitement by the football field, but there was not. We sat at the game in the freezing cold until half time and only stayed to watch the band. Then we thawed out in the hot tub and took a short nap. It was my birthday so we went to Red Lobster after I opened presents. Thanks to everyone for their gifts. I loved them all! At Red Lobster we had a great waitress who brought out a ton of shrimp for us! That night we went and watched the comedian Josh Sneed and he was hilarious. Then we ran some errands and they departed again. That night in DeHo we watched Twilight. It was a descent story but the cinematography was terrible. In the morning we had continental breakfast. Then the family wanted to go to target, the mall, and TIS. We also fit lunch in at Panera Bread and shared a Pumpkin Pie Blizzard at Dairy Queen. Then they left and I got to take a 5 hour nap!It was a beautiful thing. Then I just had some Tyler time and got some work done and then went to bed. Well that is all I have. Thanks for a great weekend and birthday. Stay Classy Nappanee/Muncie!
