To be honest, mostly every time I visit my hometown in Wisconsin I'm not out hunting or fishing on the lake. I usually visit during the summer season where the only things to do are hang out in the campground and stay in the small city. My uncle Rick owns this campground thats called Green lake Campround. For the past 20 years he has been improving and expanding the campground which has brought in people from all around the country The campground has many nice people that stay there all summer long. At the age of 12, I was at a Wednesday movie night in the park and was introduced by my brother to this group of kids. I hung out with them and they were very nice so i hung out with them the next day too. I got along with this girl Candice and we spent nearly every day of my visit doing anything we wanted at the campground. The day I was leaving back to Miami we got each others phone numbers and said bye. We contacted over the entire year and video chatted to keeping touch. We planned a visit to meet at the campground the next summer and we had so much fun. We went to the Wisconsin Dells which is one of the nation's best water parks. I try to visit to Wisconsin as much as I can but I'm lucky if ill get there even once a year. However, Candice and I have done a great job contacting each other and are always excited to visit each other whenever we can.

In the Pierce family, there isn't one male over the age of three that hasn't participated on a sports team. The most time consuming and self interest activities involve many simple sports and serious competitiveness in my family. We love to play basketball because it is the easiest and quickest to play and the winners of each previous game always brag about who has the champ belt. Other then basketball, we enjoy getting in the yard and tossing the football and if we feel aggressive one day we might even play tackle. The experience of one Pierce member on any sports team, usually brought the sport and competitiveness to the backyard or whoever we anted to play with our family.
Some activities we don't consider sports but enjoy, involve much athletic ability. For example, activities such as wake boarding, hiking, golfing, or skiing, are very common interest to us. My family even gets competitive doing this stuff but we always enjoy doing them with each other. Wakeboarding is my favorite thing to do in my free time. I try very hard on the water and will take nasty falls trying to do big tricks. I hurt myself sometimes but the pain doesn't linger for long. usually just like a face plant to the water or my knee hitting me in the face.
