July 24, 2007

I went to a store called Pacific Ocean. I saw live crabs, live snails, and live frogs. There were a lot of them. It was a Chinese market. Then I went to lunch at a Chinese restaurant. It was good. It was a big restaurant. We went there because my Mom and Ms. MaKayla might want to take their class there on a field trip. We went to another store but my Mom and Ms. MaKalya aren’t going to bring their class in this store because there’s breakable stuff in there and there is already lots of stuff broken and there is lots of fragile stuff there. We bought some Chinese food – panda cookies and candy and seaweed. I also bought a soup spoon.

I went to the rec center because I wanted to go swimming and I got my own rec center card. Because I’m seven now and they keep track of how many people there are so that’s why I had to get one.

Hey, Abby--

It sounds like you had another big day!

Would you recommend that Chinese restaurant over others we've dined at in Colorado?

I'm glad you were able to fit a swim into your busy schedule. Were you able to swim laps like you used to do?

Grandpa – I don’t think you guys have been to that Chinese restaurant. I like all of the Chinese restaurants – I can’t really decide which one I like best, I just like them all. Yes I could swim laps but I didn’t really.

Hi Abby,

You sure are a busy girl! What did you order at the Chinese restaurant? My husband, Matt, LOVES Chinese food. Did you see any Hermit Crabs at the market? When I taught 6th grade we had two Hermit crabs as pets. We named them Ed and Ted. Have a great day, Abby. I will see you soon!

Hello Abby - I'm impressed with your very own special Blog Spot. It was so interesting to see the things you are doing. The short example of you knitting reminded me of my own grandmother teaching me how when I was about your age. Since then I have had fun knitting lots and lots of things.
I have a friend who was an opera star in China and now lives in California, but is too shy to sing here. Her name is Wen Juan. She flew to China last Wednesday to see her family for a month and hopes to bring her 20 year old son
to California with her.
Do you use the spoon you bought in the Chinese Market?
I liked the pictures of the dog and the others, too. We have a dog who likes to go to a nice restaurant with us for breakfast on Saturdays....every week, rain or shine. The restaurant allows well behaved dogs in the outdoor part where there are flowers and shrubs and a wonderful fountain.
It is hot in Southern California today, so we are staying indoors until later. I hope it is cooler where you are and that you enjoy a swim.
Smiles,
Irene Gibson, a friend (of your Grandfather), who works at ways to help people avoid or stop smoking or chewing tobacco.

Hi Abby:

I would like to visit that Chinese market some time.

Is that the rec center where I came to watch your swimming lesson one time?

I'd like to know what panda cookies are also.

How do you eat the seaweed? Does it look kind of like grass and you cook it, or what?

Hello Abby!
I loved the photos on your blog! So many blogs just have words--like your Dad's! Just kidding!

If you are interested in butterflies you might want to visit a website that helps you identify butterfly.

Let me know if you can find it!
All the best,
Mrs. Mays
Minnesota yes where it gets very cold but today it is almost 90 F!

Hi Abby,
I'm glad to hear that you went swimming. You are such a good swimmer, but I hadn't heard of you going swimming much this summer.

I liked the knitting video. It does not show how fast and well you knit. We will have to see about another knitting project for you. Thanks for including me in that video.

Mrs. Marci – I ordered Beef Lo Mein. We also got eggplant and these buns with cream in the middle. We did not see any Hermit crabs. I will see you soon too.

Durff – Panda cookies are cookies with pictures of Pandas on them. They have vanilla come out of them when you chew it and chocolate come out when you chew it and strawberry when you chew it it squirts out.

Irene – No I haven’t used the new spoon I got from the Chinese market – we haven’t had soup yet. It’s hot here too.

Aunt Martha – No, it is a different rec center. I don’t know about the seaweed.
