Big Ben





This summer my family went to London. We saw many places including Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, The Globe of Shakespeare, The Tower of London, The London Eye, and Paul's Cathedral. We went to all these places in just a week. 
Today's post is about Big Ben. Take a look at this picture. Big Ben was my favorite because in all the television shows that take place in London, Big Ben was in it. Have you ever gone to London. If not, imagine what it would be like?

Swiss Army Knife

For my birthday, my parents let me get something. I chose a engraved Swiss Army Knife. On it, it says the bear because my parents call me that when i played baseball. This knife is called the Camper. The tools on it are a bottle opener, can opener, corkscrew, saw, knife, toothpick, tweezers, and a reamer with a sewing eye.


Do you have a Swiss Army Knife?

Have you ever used a pocket knife?

Pancake Swirls

On Sunday, my dad made pancakes for me. When he flipped one, it had swirls on it. We did not know why, so we thought about what could of caused this. My dad said, " It must have happened when I was putting the dough on the pan because I put it on in circles." Then we took a picture of it before it burned. The pancake was delicious.



What do you think happened to the pancake?

What do you put on your pancakes?

Roxy and Barley


Three weeks ago my family took care of a dog. The dog was a chocolate Labrador. Her name was Barley. My dog Roxy was playing for hours with Barley. Roxy took a couple of naps. The dogs were waking up around six. Saturday was the most tiring day.  My mom walked the dogs while I was playing basketball. After thirty minutes I played fetch. Roxy was so tired, so she took a nap. Barley was not tired yet. I played fetch again. The Sunday Barley left was when I had a game. My mom told me we just missed her by five minutes.

Sun Sugar Tomatoes

A couple weeks ago my dad got me a tomato plant. We planted it. After a few weeks, they turned yellow. The tomato has to be orange to be eaten. These tomatoes are called sun sugar. Some other tomatoes are red. When they turned orange, my sister tasted them. I used her because she loves tomatoes. "It was pretty good, she said. Suddenly I gulped it it. Same as my mom. My mom shared the tomato with me. Here are some of our tomatoes.


Before we even ate it we just slid in this picture.

Have you tasted a sun sugar tomato?

The Getty Center

This summer I went to the Getty Center with my grandparents. We decided to go because every time we pass the museum they want to go, so this summer we went. When we got there, we first got on the tour. We were learning so many things about the  paintings and who created it. While walking and looking I spotted the kings bed. It looked like to me that the blanket was silk. We also saw a wood sculpture that looked like a statue. It had these meanings on it's foot. I thought to myself and how long would it take.  The tour guide did not say, but it probably took a long time. The last thing we did in the tour was  the garden of eve. I learned more information about Adam and Eve. We ate lunch, and while eating we were thinking of what should we do next. We chose the garden tour. On the tour we past many trees. She told us that all the trees would look like one. Next, we walked down to the garden. I walked to the garden and saw many flowers, vines, and even a maze in the water. It is very beautiful

Here is a photo with the maze and the Getty Center




Have you been to the Getty Center or a museum? If so what did you learn?

Unrecognized Plant Solved

 On one of my posts I was talking about the bonita peach. Since my grandparents were here I knew that they had gardening experience . One day my grandma saw a tree in my garden and saw a ripe fruit. I was in the pool when it happened, so I did not get to see it. She tried it and she recognized the flavor. My grandma always tastes my grandpas fruits a lot, so I knew my grandma's connections with the fruit was probably going to be correct. She was thinking for a while, and suddenly she thought of the word apricot. An apricot is orange and to me tastes like a plum. So that means it is a apricot tree

 Have you tried a apricot before?
