October 24, 2008

Today my Mom and I raked the leaves in our front yard. We raked a lot of leaves. We filled one trash can and two garbage bags. I had to stand in the trash can to crush the leaves so that we could fit more in. When we came in from raking the leaves we put a new quilt on my bed. The quilt is rainbow colors. Here are pictures of my room.

Then we had lunch. I had a quesadilla with cheese and black olives. I also had peaches. After lunch I played with my friend Dane. When Dane went home my Mom and I went for a walk.

Florida Day 5

I went to Sea World. I saw a dolphin and whale show. The dolphins and the whales jumped so high that their whole body was out of the water. Also at this show were people dressed in costumes and on bungee cords pretending to fly. After the show my Dad fed the dolphins and I tried to pet them. A trainer came over and helped get the dolphin over with a special whistle so I could pet it.

Then we saw a killer whale swimming around right up by the glass. Next we saw the Shamu show. The trainers had to train the whales to do all the cool stuff that the whales can do now. The killer whales jumped all the way out of the water. It was really fun because they got their body all the way up. There was a baby whale.

Before I went on the Whale Express roller coaster I got to climb on the nets. I could get up the nets all by myself this year. Then we went on the Whale Express roller coaster. It was really slow. It was fun because it was so slow. While I was climbing the nets my Grandma and Grandpa bought me a t-shirt with a killer whale on it. I like it.

Then we saw the penguins. Then we saw puffins with people in the tank cleaning it. Then we saw really big sea turtles. They were sleeping. Then we saw pearl divers. Last, we went home. It was a really good day.

Florida Day 4

I went to the beach today. This beach was on the Atlantic Ocean and was called Jetty Park at Cape Canaveral. I saw two sea turtles and I saw two dolphins. I tried to build a sandcastle but it washed away because of the waves. My Dad and I ran into the ocean and had races and pretended that my Dad was a lifeguard and he came out and saved me. We drove to the beach in Grandma and Grandpa's new RV and we took Brandie. Brandie is a dog that belongs to Grandma and Grandpa's friends Richard and Vera and Grandma and Grandpa are taking care of her while their friends are gone. We ate lunch in the RV by the beach. We saw three big boats come into the port.

Florida Day 3

The next day we went to Animal Kingdom. We rode on a water ride where you ride on some rapids and get wet. We rode on it three times. We rode on a safari two times and saw elephants, cheetahs, giraffes, hippos, flamingos, okapis, crocodiles, a white rhino, a black rhino, warthog, ostrich, and other animals. There was a really old bridge that was tilted and it made it bumpy. We also saw the Finding Nemo Musical and it was about the movie Finding Nemo. I liked the part with the turtles the best.

Florida Day 2

The next day we went to EPCOT Center and went on Test Track. It’s where you get in a car and pretend to test a sample car. We went over bumps, we had a brake test where you go really fast and then it brakes, and went in a really hot room and a really cold room, and then see how fast it goes around the building and my Mom screamed. We rode the Finding Nemo ride and rode in shells. At the very end we got to see dolphins in a tank. We went on a boat ride in Mexico and saw all different kinds of things that people in Mexico do. We rode The Land, it’s also a boat ride, and we saw the greenhouse. The greenhouse is where fruits grow. We saw the Circle of Life movie and it was about leave no trace. We went on Journey to the Imagination which is where you go through rooms about hearing, smelling, tasting, seeing and feeling. We also went on Soarin’, which is a ride where you pretend to fly and you see a movie with scenery in it. We ate lunch at a Chinese place at EPCOT. I liked it. At the end we went on a ride in the big ball that was about the olden days and the future.

Florida Day 1

We are in Florida on vacation. We came here to see my Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle Mike and to do fun things. Here are some of the rides we went on at Magic Kingdom: Buzz Lightyear, Splash Mountain, the Blue Line, Thunder Mountain, the Indy Speedway and It’s a Small World. At Buzz Lightyear you had a laser and you tried to light up the little Z’s. At Splash Mountain you get wet when you go down the big hill. The Blue Line went through Space Mountain and all around Tomorrowland. Goofy’s roller coaster is really fun but really quick. You go up a big hill, come down halfway, turn the corner, then turn another corner, go through the chicken house, then you turn another corner, then you go straight, then you turn another corner and then it brakes really hard and you’re finished. The time that we went on Thunder Mountain we got to ride in the front seat and it was really fun. I liked It’s a Small World because I played that on the piano a while back.
