Through the Middle Maura MacDonald

My dad and I. (Year and a half) Once when I was closer to two years old, my dad and brother were wrestling. I thought it was going to be a good idea to join them by jumping on my dads back. I slid off and hit my head on my brothers dresser knob and had to get stitches right on my brow bone.

2004 in North Carolina for my cousins wedding. I was the flower girl and my brother, Spencer was the ring bearer.

Disney 2006 with my uncle and grandparents. This is where I lost my first tooth. The first vacation I took with my grandparents and also the last one before my little sister was born.

As much as we drive each other crazy, we still love each other. We may fight, and argue, and occasionally want to rip each other's heads off we can still put a smile on our face and give each other hugs and create amazing memories together, year after year.

This is one of many photos my family took to document the cruise we took. We went to Curaçao, the Dominican Republic, Grand Turk which is part of the Turks and Caicos islands, and Aruba.

My mom, grandpa, and my dad. November 2015, my family and grandpa went to the Bills game at Arrowhead stadium. My dad grew up outside of Buffalo and has always been a fan.

Another picture from the cruise. We were docked in Aruba when this picture was taken. We got here at about 9:00 in the morning and spent all day here.

A day at sea, when we were on our cruise we had days where we just traveled. This was taken on one of those days as the sun was setting. There was one occasion where we were able to capture the progression of the setting sun.

This was taken in Curaçao at what they call "The Walking Bridge." This bridge moves when a boat is trying to get through the two sides of the city.

Another picture of me while in Disney with my grandparents.

Throughout my high school career my friends an I have had many great experiences together.

I took this picture while on our way to New York over the Summer of 2016.

The second time I've been to Disney. We surprised my little sister by taking her. My mom had a conference down there and we extended the stay and had a blast.

Adventure, noun; An exciting or very unusual experience.
Danielle is my best friend. We became friends in second grade when she was the new girl and I volunteered to show her around and get adjusted. We've been best of friends ever since.
I'm a very social person. I like having fun and doing things with my friends, I love going on vacations and creating new memories.
Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. -Bradley Whitford
