Our Vacation at Bandon

A few months ago, we spent a couple days with Papa in Bandon.
Bandon is where my mom grew up. We stayed in her bedroom, it was very warm.
It was a fun trip. Here are some of the things we did.
This is the Coquille River Lighthouse in Bandon.
These are sea lions and we spotted them and Mommy took a picture.
This is a jellyfish. Moms says it is Polyorchis penicillatus but I don't know how to say it. We also saw a larger jellyfish but it was dead on the beach and looked really yucky so I didn't want to show you the picture. We don't know what kind it was though.This is me when we went crabbing. We only caught one that we could keep but someone gave us two more crabs.This is a fox. One of Papa's friends had trapped it to move it off his farm.

Yosemite National Park

This is a picture of a valley called Yosemite National Park. We went on a vacation there a couple weeks ago. On our last day, a bear walked through our campsite! . I really liked Yosemite and it was very fun.
This picture is of Half Dome. Half Dome is made of one kind of rock called granite.
My brother loves trains a lot. We surprised him with a trip on an old steam engine near Yosemite.
My mom found a butterfly and she put the butterfly on her finger. I put a little water on my finger and let the butterfly climb onto my finger. Then I showed my brother and Daddy. Buddy wanted to have the butterfly on his finger too but it got scared and flew away.
This picture is of the Grizzly tree. It started growing when Cleopatra was ruling in Egypt.This tree was so big that years ago, before Yosemite was a national park, people cut a hole through the tree to drive a car through it. The huge trees here brought attention to the area and many people like John Muir and Galen Clark helped to make it a national treasure.

Genelf - My WOW Character

I love to play War Craft. I just got my own character a few weeks ago. Daddy helped me make my own character. I most like to play with Bef and Bar online. We go on quests together. We can talk to each other through the computer. It is really fun. I am on level 3. I can't wait for Easter Feaster so I can play with them and show them my new character.

My First Tournament!

This was my first Taekwondo tournament. I had fun. I earned a silver medal in my poomse division. I was too scared to compete in the sparring division. Next time I will have more confidence.

I made this by myself. It is two different kinds of volcanoes. One shoots out ash, the other oozes lava. I drew it so you can see the magma inside.
From My Mom:

Shield Volcano
- A gently-sloping volcano that emits mostly basaltic lava that flows in long-lasting, relatively gentle eruptions - explosions are minimal. Shield volcanoes can be very big. An example is Mt. Kilauea (in Hawaii, USA).

Composite or Strato Volcano - A steep-coned volcano that explosively emits gases, ash, and pumice. This type of volcano can have eruptions accompanied by mudflows. Most volcanoes on Earth are of this type. Strato Volcanoes kill more people than any other type of volcanoes - this is because of their abundance on Earth and their powerful mudflows. Examples are Krakatoa in Indonesia, Mt. Pinatubo in the Philippines, and Mt. St. Helens in Washington state, USA.

Snow Haiku

In the fluffy snow,
I follow the animals.
Their tracks take me far.

I like to make snowflakes. My favorite one is the purple butterfly. Can you find it?

My New Years Resolution

I want to spend more time my friends. I promise to not cry and pout when it is time to go.
