That’s Allstar Weekend!’…It was really great! It was so much fun and they are soo good at bowling!”

Coco added, “I remember it all and they gave me some really good advice. They said, ‘Just have fun, and practice makes perfect. Oh, and they also said that if you’re not having fun don’t do it, and always give 100%.’ My favorite Allstar Weekend song is ‘Come Down With Love.’ I was just singing it earlier today while my mom was doing my hair.”
