What processes take place during the period after the blood enters the kidneys till the urine leaves the body?

Blood flows to the kidney through the renal artery. Once in the kidney the blood flows through a series of smaller and smaller arteries until it gets to the glomerulus. The glomerulus filters blood and to be very simplistic creates a filtrate of the blood or "urine". This urine then flows through a series of progressively bigger tubules and ducts until it gets to the renal pelvis. At this point urine exits the kidney, it enters the ureter (long tube connecting kidney and bladder), and flows into the bladder where it is held until one desires to urinate. At this time urine flows out of the bladder and into the urethra. The urethra connects the bladder to the outside of the body.

Were does your water come from?

The correct name for the water produced by the body is urine. Urine is produced by the kidneys when they filter the blood to remove wastes, such as urea. This is what gives urine its colour. During the day as we are drinking liquids, the urine is more dilute and so lighter in colour. During the night we continue producing urea but do not take in water, so first thing in the morning the urine is more concentrated and so darker in colour. Urine filtered by the kidneys is stored in the bladder until you go to the toilet. The kidneys are connected to the bladder by a pair of tubes called ureters. These carry the urine to the bladder. Urine passes out of the bladder through a tube called the urethra. In males this tube runs inside the penis. In females it runs directly to the outside of the body, opening just in front of the vagina.

Why do you have to pee?

To eliminate waste from the blood. The kidneys take nitrogenous wastes out of the blood and pull some water out as well to make urine, which then flows down the ureters and into the bladder, and when you're ready to go, from the bladder through the urethra and out of the body. If your kidneys didn't do this, you would die within a few days without dialysis, so it's an important function.
