Yesterday my family and I went to Disneyland California Adventure Park. My favourite ride was Soarin' over California. We sat in a seat with a seatbelt like a plane and it lifted up over a view of popular places in California, and it was like we were really there. My second favourite ride was called the Grizzly River Run. It was a bit scary but i liked it.
We are staying in a big house in LA. But we had trouble opening the garage door.
And two days ago I went to Hollywood!!! There we saw all the stars names and hand and footprints in the concrete. We went to a Mexican restaurant and I had real nachos. We drove around and saw some stars' homes.
I like our house although it echoes a lot, it has a wonderful kitchen and a few days ago we saw two deer ( as dad says 'oh dear?') in a neighbour's yard.
Mum and Dad are extra hyped about being in America. Dad's jokes are more frequent and extra bad and Mum is getting up really early. We have a large car, though not as big as our RV, and Mum and Dad swerve all over the road, knocking into bins on narrow roads while us kids sit moaning in the back.
We went to Hollywood two days a go and saw the Stars' prints. We arrived late because my parents got lost but blamed it on the Navman (there are so many exit and entry ramps to millions of criss-crossing Freeways). There were many tourist shops in Hollywood although we didn't get anything. After that we drove aroung Beverly Hills and tried to find the Hollywood sign.
Yesterday we went to Disneyland's California. We went on a few rides including Soarin' Over California and the Grizzly River Run which was my favorite. You hop into round rafts, strap on seatbelts then head off. You are dragged up a big hill then go round in circles getting splashed ending with two steep drops. It was my favorite and I went on twice although the water was freezing. We watched a lot of shows, talked to Crush the turtle ( awesome dude!), watched a fantastic Aladdin show with up-to-date comedy and great stunts, went to a 3D bugs show in which we were attcked by spray and spiders and had maggots crawling on our seats. Finally we saw a parade with disney Pixar charcters. It has been so fun!!! :)
