For fall break I went to the Los Angeles natural history museum and there was a mummy exhibit and it was cool.  

We also went to the dinosaur exhibit and it had real dinosaur skeletons. It was so fun. 

Then we went to the gems and minerals exhibit and it had real gold! 

We also saw a real space shuttle, the Endeavor, at the California Science Center next door.  It was so big and cool!

We had so much fun at the natural history museum!

Guest Blogger: Aabha's Diwali Festival

In October, it was Diwali. It is an Indian festival, happens once  a year before thanksgiving. It is very exciting. We had a lot of family over and had lots of yummy food. 
There were 3 days of Diwali and we celebrated on all  of them.
On first day, we prayed to God and put on bright lights all around our house. Diwali is supposed to be the festival of lights.
On the second day, we had a lot of treats and also some light fireworks.
On the third day, my I got lots of gifts from my brother. He also gave gifts to my sister and my cousins.
It was great to have my family over. It was great fun!

Guest Blogger: Peyton- My AWESOME Surprise Trip to San Diego!

Over fall break I flew to San Diego. On the first day I drove to the airport and I took a plane to San Diego. We stayed at a hotel.

On Tuesday I went to the San Diego Zoo.

The first animals we saw were the koalas.

My sister got a face paint of a koala.

I saw black bears and giant pandas. I went on a bus tour and I also went on a sky tram. The zoo was so much fun.

On Wednesday I went to sea world. At sea world we saw lots of shows. We saw a seal show, a dolphin show, a killer whale show and a show with cats, dogs and other animals.

I also saw two cute white Beluga Whales.

I watched an animal helper feed penguins.

I brought three toys home. The three toys I brought home were a Beluga whale, a giant panda, and a penguin. 

It was such a AWESOME surprise that I got to go to San Diego with my family!

I hope you enjoyed my blog.

Hanging with the Emperor Penguins in Antarctica

We are now on our third continent and taking the plunge into Antarctica with the Emperor Penguin. We are freezing just thinking about how cold it is in Antarctica and the weather the dad penguin has to withstand... as he holds onto his baby in its egg all winter long.
