Our Vacation

History Museum:
We went to a lot of exhibits. We went in a grain elevator. In an old-time house exhibit, we sat on a bed where the words "Sit Here" were projected. Then, a lady's voice said, "I don't know what's wrong with this bed, but every time you turn over, the bed falls down." And we felt the bed fall down! There was also a piggy bank that we could put giant coins in, then we would pull a lever and all the coins would fall out. (It would be cool if they turned into real coins.)

Water Park of America:
All the water slides were really fun, especially the family tube slide, which always had a really long line. I also liked the lazy river. I went boogie boarding. This is what it looked like.

Sculpture Garden:
It had a giant spoon and cherry sculpture. The handle of the spoon was on the ground and the other end was on an island in the middle of a pond that had ducks in it. We took lots of cool pictures and we want you to check them out in the photo album. I especially want you to see the picture of me squatting with two heads!

The Works Museum:
I played the light harp. Eliana did, too. I played K'Nex. We built cars to race. Eliana built a wall. I helped her a little. We saw a robot that just kept looking at us. We moved and its sensor sensed us moving, so it turned that direction. We just couldn't get it to keep its eyes off us. Finally I just ran far away from its sensor, then ran to the right, and ran back to the robot. It didn't turn to look at me. The Works Museum was really fun.

Holiday Inn:
The Holiday Inn had a diamond shaped pool. We swam in it. It also had a triangle shaped hot tub. We swam in it. (I didn't really swim in it, but I kind of sat with my legs in it because it was too hot. They should turn the heat down.) They had two big beds for all of us. We slept on them. The Holiday Inn was pretty fun. (Wasn't this section of the blog pretty funny?)

Mall of America:
I played at Lego Land. I made a Star Wars ship, cops and robber Lego guys, and a robot that had a chainsaw and an ax. Eliana covered a giant Lego play station with Legos.

We went on a few rides. Eliana did a few more rides than I did because I didn't want to go on them. But one of them Mom made me go on. Some of the fun rides I liked were the mini roller coaster, the ferris wheel, the hot air balloon ride (though it made me feel sick), and the merry-go-round. The merry-go-round had a dragon that I wanted to ride, but a little girl got there first. I rode a horse instead, which is common for merry-go-rounds, but a dragon isn't that common.

The entire trip was pretty fun! The end. That is a true story.
