Today was Valentines Day.  It really didn't feel like it, but that's okay.  We drove for 4 hours and had dinner at a truck stop.  We are staying in an old train car that is a hotel that looks pretty good.  I am excited about tomorrow and can't wait.

Today we spent a day with relatives.  We spent some time at their shop, saw roses in a wonderful garden and went to church and had pizza for dinner.  That was my day and I hope I have a good day tomorrow.

Today was awesome.  We went to a great museum.  We saw mummies, birds, bugs, skeletons of many animals, rocks, diamonds, and more.  My favorite part was when my mom made up a scavenger hunt all around the museum and the prize was something from the gift shop.  I loved today and hope I have fun tomorrow.

We went to the Chinese Market and spent 3 hours there.  There was a big event for Chinese New Year.  We ate at Cruise (restaurant in the Rocks) and then went to Luna (amusement) Park and spent 5 hours there.  I loved the big slides and we took a taxi home.

Today was so cool.  We went ice skating and it was fun.  We took the train to get there and it took a long time.  There were two schools there, but we didn't mind them.  After they left there were some girls who were hitting hockey pucks around, so we go some too and hit them around.  It's harder than it looks.  We left the ice rink and took the train back home.

Today was awesome.  We went to the aquarium and saw platypuses, sharks and more!  After the aquarium, we took a little train on wheels to go see a movie, but there were no good movie times there.  So we went to a Chinese market where I got a new purse.  Then we took the monorail to another movie theater and had sushi for dinner, mmmmmmmmm.  Then we saw Finding Neverland.  It was sad.  Then we got on a bus and rode home.  I had a good night's sleep.
