My Spring Break was awesome!
Saturday, I horseback rode Hollywood and I did amazing because my time on the obstacle course was turbo! I had a great time. I also played baseball at Miracle League. My team was on fire for the first time. Second time I felt that our team was undefeated because I got a first pitch hit!
Sunday, Barrie my nurse came and we explored the Birch Aquarium. We toured the new Infinity Cube exhibit, and I loved it. It was a bioluminescence exhibit with Haiku poems and we saw the different underwater animals in the dark. I liked how it was laid out because it was my dad’s project. He and his team did a fantastic job planning and putting it together. There was a big cube in which people could stand. It was dark and there was a flashlight you got to shine on the wall for the different poems and the animals. After that, we went home.
Monday, I went to LEGOLAND early to beat the traffic jam. When we arrived, there was a huge construction zone. We peeked at the hole in the fence and saw they will build a castle hotel. We waited for a long time to get our access pass for the rides. We went to Ninjago ride, and I got 3rd in individual and 1st place in a team. I was proud of that. Then, we watched 4D Lego, a new adventure movie. After the movie, we ate lunch at Heartlake City. Soon the show there started. I thought it was a pleasure to see the show. “Best friends forever forever, and ever. No, no, no matter what, we stick together. Best friends forever forever and ever, me and my girls, we’re best friends forever! ” Then, we watched the Character dance party. It had the songs, “Shut up and Dance with Me, Can’t Stop the Feeling, and Uptown Funk.” There were theatrical dancers who were phenomenal and we took pictures with them. Finally, we went on rides such as the Fairytale boat which had Lego characters named Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Billy Goat Gruff, Jack and the Beanstalk, etc. The last ride I went on was called Coastersaurus.
At night, my family had a Passover Seder. A Seder is when you are with a bunch of your family and friends. You read from the Haggadah, a Jewish book and you drink wine and tell the story of Moses, Joseph, and Leah. They were slaves but Moses said, “Let my people leave Egypt and go to the land of milk and honey.” At first the King said, no you cannot go. That’s why there were plagues like frogs, blood, lice, and the last plague was death of the firstborn. Finally, the King let the Israelites go. My brother Matthew, Anne-Marie, Ellinora my niece, Grandma Rhoda, Uncle Robert, dogs Riley, Macie, Otis, friends Rick, Lisa and cousin Alison, who sat next to me, along with Trevor and Dina were there.
Tuesday, after Bonnie, we went to Old Town. We toured around the Casa de Reyes area. We also went to this shop and in the middle of it, there was this duet with a Native flutist and a guitarist, and it was so beautiful! Old Town is the oldest part of San Diego, because of Mexican heritages. Lots to see, people, kids and we had a nice lunch.
Wednesday, we went to Safari Park. We rode on my first hot air balloon ride. It was so fun because when we went up, I thought, whoa! This is so cool! When we were going down, I thought, oh, here we go again, wheeeee! I felt great after that! I rode the tram and saw a baby giraffe and her mom. It was so cute! It was a spectacular view. Then, we strolled up to the butterfly jungle and one landed on Arlie’s hat and an orange butterfly perched on my fingertip. Aw! It was a fantastic feeling! The greeneries and the flowers were calm and beautiful there too!
Thursday, we went to Balboa Park. First, there was a woman playing the organ to demo for the class. It was my first time actually getting a demo live at the Organ Pavilion. The Japanese garden used to have flowers for the cherry blossoms but it was gone now because it was last month. We also heard and saw this awesome vocal/guitar player.
Lastly, on Friday Arlie and I walked around the Embarcadero. Then we strolled to Seaport Village. OMG, there was a guitar/harmonica/flute/vocal player. He was awesome to listen to while we ate lunch. When we rode the carousel twice, I heard a weird and loud noise coming from the sky and I thought, hmm. Where is it coming from? Lots of people, even me were watching the sky because these airplanes practiced for the Red Bull air show for Saturday and Sunday. One plane flew around and up and down like a rollercoaster. It was very swift. Then we got gas and a car wash. It was great!
Saturday, I went horseback riding and I won tic tac toe with Gretchen my instructor. After that, my dad and I headed to the Aquarium and we went to the Infinity Cube exhibit. This time, we actually went inside the cube, and it was amazing because you feel inspired to be a scientist!
On Easter Sunday, I went to the Zoo and Omg, there were a guitar player and a hula hoop dancer who were amazing! Then Cece and I headed to the bus tour. We saw elephants, giraffes, cheetahs, condors, koalas, and others. Then I saw the Easter bunny. I also saw some monkeys and a few were climbing from branch to branch.
My favorite part of my Spring break was LEGOLAND because it was so amazing to go there when there was no school. I also liked Safari Park because of my first hot air balloon ride. My least favorite part was nothing because it was an exciting break!!!! Overall, my Spring break was fantastic and spectacular! This summer, I will go to New York to see my nephew Theo and for my grandpa Murray’s funeral.
