Winter for sure!

2. What do you enjoy doing most during that season?
Well, my birthday, and Christmas, and being with my family while it's cool and we can have our wood stove burning.

3.Do you play any instruments? If so, which ones?
No, but I am learning keyboard.

4. What is your favorite style of music?
I enjoy contemporary Christian.

5.Who is your favorite author?
My Grandpa—Randall Reinstedt
and Susan Marlow
or Lauraine Snelling

6.If you could do anything you wanted, what would you choose to do?
Hmm, probably go on a back-country trip on some horses.

7. What is your favorite animal?

8. What is your favorite thing to do around a campfire?
I'm not sure. I guess just hang out with my family.

9.Who do you most enjoy spending time with?
My family for sure.

10.What is your favorite riddle?
I don't really have one. But IF I had to pick one, I would say this: A woman lives on the seventh floor of an apartment building. Every morning she gets in the elevators and goes to the level one, goes to work, but when she comes home, she presses the button for the fifth floor, and then walks up the rest of the stairs to her room. Why doesn't she just hit the seventh story button when she is going home?
(You guys can guess and I will post the answer later. )

Jonathan Park, or Adventures in Oddysey.
