We packed my favorite toys, books and our dresses. Me, my mom, and my dad went to Boston. It took three and a half hours. In our travel time I ate yellow rice and slept. We saw different places. At night we stayed in my family friend's house. My favorite part was the Whale Watch!!!!!
I loved the Whale Watch. It was four hours trip in the steamer. It was totally in the sea. The steamer went so fast I could see the water splash. It was wonderful.
After we traveled one a half hour, we started to see whales. I took pictures, especially their tails. It comes out and splashes the water as it goes into the water. They migrate in winter. They go to the South Atlantic Ocean and they come back in summer.
We saw young whales. They were born in the South Atlantic Ocean. Their mother teaches them how to swim. I am so happy to see this.
New England Aquarium
It was awesome. I saw seals, different kinds of fish, penguins, eel, seahorse, makes and different kinds of frogs.
The seals were trained to act like human beings. The trainers fed them food. They treated them like kids.
The colors of the fish were beautiful. I saw all sizes of the fish. When they let go, breath bubbles come in the water.
The penguins looked pretty. They waddled when they need to get somewhere. We learned how the eel produces electricity. I did an experiment near the eel.
I was excited before going into the Science Museum! We learned about how each part of the human body works. I saw how the pig lungs work the same as our lungs. I touched the pig lungs. We saw how the brain reacts when we see something.
In one experiment we saw how electricity generates in different ways. Electricity can generate with water, wind and solar power.
We learned about gravity power. We saw how much time it takes for a ball to come down. We did an experiment with a weighing scale. I saw different kinds of weighing scales.
I love the Solar System. I saw how astronauts go into space. I saw a rock that was brought from the moon. They collected stores and rocks from different countries.
I saw different kinds of engines that were used in the olden days. Finally, we saw the butterfly garden. That was awesome.
I played a lot. I climbed something that was like a puzzle. I bicycled. I pulled a thread.I made giant bubbles. I measured water, played basketball, rock climbing, and learned how the boat sinks.
We saw all the characters in Arthur. I enjoy Arthur books and Arthur movies. I danced. We took pictures of me with Arthur. We saw and airplane in Arthur World. We saw Arthur's kitchen.
We saw Boston city from he 50th floor of the Prudential Tower. It was a wonderful view. We took pictures of the city. We saw a movie of the Boston history in that how the immigrants came to Boston and started war.
In Legoland first we went on a ride, then we went to the computers where I got to build my own lego people. I had so much fun. I built a house and a car in my own creation. I raced the car in the race track. In legos, they build the whole Boston city, and they built a rocket that could launch in the space center.
We saw a 4D movie that water sprayed on us. It was so fun. I played in a dark puzzle room and the playground.
The Harvard University is so big. It was my first time I ever saw a University!!!!
In Harvard University, we saw Natural History Museum. In the Natural History Museum, we saw part of animals that died,(specimen) parts of human beings, animals from every continent and plants.
We saw a voice about how the planets were created. They explained the color and size of each planet.
They displayed all kinds of metals, stones and rocks. We saw some things that were used in the olden days because of those we learned history.
They put an audio message everywhere, so it was easy to learn.
We went on a trolley tour. We saw Boston Colonies, harbor, Boston Tea Party, Quincy Market and Leonard P. Zakin Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge. On the way the driver explained to us the history of these things.
Home at Last
On the third day we started back to home. It took three and a half hours. I slept the whole time because I was tired.
It was the "BEST TRIP EVER!!!!!"
