Justice’s Fun-filled Trip to San Diego with Kate and Alex

Justice was very excited to travel to San Diego with Kate and Alex.  It took us nine hours on two flights to get there and we were all very tired.
The next day we went to Legoland, which was so much fun! We rode on roller coasters, drove the Lego cars, watched the Fire Show and met some Lego characters.  We had such a good time that we spent 2 more days at Legoland later in the week!

Our next stop was Balboa park and the San Diego Zoo.  We saw many interesting animals and learned a lot about them.  Our favorites were the polar bears and pandas! Kate got her face painted too!

The next day we visited Sea World and got to meet Shamu the whale.  We watched a really cool dolphin show, rode another roller coaster and even shook “hands” with a star fish!

We all enjoyed a wonderful week in San Diego, with beautiful weather and so much to do.  We were all very sad that we had to leave and hope to visit again soon.

Liberty's Great Day in Washington, DC with Brooke and Michael

We are loading up the car and getting ready to drive 373 miles to Washington D.C.Wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. My name is Brooke and my brother is Michael. This is about our trip to DC with my dad and Liberty, the Parsley mascot. 

After a 5 ½ hour drive, our first stop was at Georgetown Cupcakes (where DC Cupcakes is going to be filmed).  This place had phenomenal cupcakes! My favorite was the vanilla-chocolate.  My dad had the eggnog cupcake and Michael had a peppermint swirl. Yum!!

Our next stop was at the Lincoln Memorial.  It is made entirely out of marble and took eight years to build.  The monument is very detailed and Abraham Lincoln looks just like he did in pictures. The Lincoln Memorial  was the place where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech. 

We also visited the Air and Space Museum and the Natural History Museum.  We got to see Amelia Earhart’s bright red plane and a couple of old space shuttles.  We also tried astronaut ice cream.  It was dry and didn't taste very good!   The Natural History Museum had displays of mammals and a display of a real dead squid. My favorite exhibit was of the ocean and the great white sharks. I was surprised to learn that its teeth were as big as my hand!  
Our last stop was at the White House. We walked along the south fence and saw Mrs. Obama’s garden. The White House was decorated for Christmas and looked really pretty. We didn't see the president though.

We had a great day in Washington DC and Liberty had a fun time!
