A wonderful week-end!

This weekend I had so much fun. First, on Friday night, we went to see my sister's high school's football game. My sister's school (Notre Dame High School) was versing another High School named Crespi High School and Notre Dame won! It was really close to being a tie but the score ended up being 26 to 28.

Then, we drove to Santa Barbara where we stopped at a nice hotel with a pool and a spa. On Saturday morning, we went hiking. The hike was not so long, it was about 1 hour and 45 minutes. the view from the top was incredible! On the trail there were some amazing plants with a very good smell and we picked some up and what a delight it was for us!

Next, we went to the Pier where we ate some delicious Sea Food. Including, Crab, fish and ships, and calamaris. I ate calamaris and shared a crab with my dad. 

Then, we went to the Historical Museum of Santa Barbara. It was really interesting and very cool too! It actually had a magic painting which means that when you pressed a button, it had somebody talking in it. After staring at it for a while, I realized that it was a screen that they made to look like that person in the painting was actually talking to us.

Then, we went on the board walk. My parents were walking, my older sister  was jogging, I was on my scooter, my little sister was on  her scooter and my brother was on  his skateboard. The boardwalk was near the pier, and when you reached a certain point, there was fascinating structure which was very colorful!

We stayed at the boardwalk for a long time and after that we left for a camping place.

Before we went into our cottage, we stopped at a bar/restaurant. Their were two different rooms. One was the bar and I loved it because they were playing guitar inside and I am learning how to play guitar so it really helped me. The restaurant's name was, Cold Tavern.

The we drove about 10 more minutes and got to our cottage. Our cottage was very nice and we had one bunk bed which my sister and I slept in, one queen sized bed which my brother and my little sister, and one king size bed which my parents slept in. The cottage was pretty small but it was just the right size for us!
This is what our cottage looked like:

In the morning, right after we woke up, I played a game card with my mom and then we went to eat breakfast at the lodge. It was scrumptious! I had amazing hash browns. Then, we went to the chapel and did a little prayer. And then, we went to the tetherball court and played some for about 15 min. 

Sadly, due to the rain we had to come home a little early back home. 

I had a phenomenal weekend!

Going Roller Skating at Venice Beach

Saturday I went to Venice beach with my brother, my little sister and my mom.  My brother and sister were biking and my mom and I were rolling skating.

It was so amusing!  We went to all the little shops and I had forgotten my jacket so I got a jacket, I love the jacket!

Have you ever been to Venice beach?
 Do you know how to roller skate?

Using my imagination to create a Hotel

As you may know, I am very creative! At home, we have thin blocks and I used them to make a Hotel. I put room numbers on every room. It looked great.

My family loves to play with them! Wit these bricks my brother also made a huge tower. It was so big it almost touched the ceiling and it was bigger than my dad!

Do you have a lot of imagination?
Do you ever build towers?

Going to the market

Every Saturday, I go to the market with mom. I love this market because there are so many varieties. There are peaches of every sort, tomatoes of every kind...

Look at all these varieties!

Have you ever been to a market?

Going Hiking

Yesterday, I went hiking with my mom, my brother and little sister. It was an easy hike with a beautiful view!

We had so much fun, we tried looking for our house in the view but it was so big we could hardly tell one house from another. Sometimes we thought we found it but when we told it to others we couldn't find it anymore because the view was so big!

 They were delicious!

3 little spoons of brown sugar

In a big bowl, mix the sugar, the brown sugar, and the melted butter together.

Then, slowly add the flour, the baking powder and the salt. Continue to mix while putting the chocolate chips in.
