POSTCARDS FROM PARKER #1
please welcome parker as he makes his first foray into the world of blogging. we are thrilled that both his and avery's teachers and classes expressed an interest in following our journey this week. parker will be posting his 'postcards' as he is able.
and now without further ado...i give you the man of the hour!
It's Parker, we flew in from Bellingham, Washington to Oakland, California. On the airplane, we got to see the cockpit and the pilot. My mom said the pilot looked like he was 12 years old.
The flight wasn't very long it was about 1hour and 30 minutes. The sights were really cool! When we got there we rented a car (It's a blue Dodge charger). I wanted to rent a Camaro. My parents just laughed. HaHa...NOT!
We drove from Oakland to our hotel in South San Francisco. We had to cross the Bay Bridge to get there. You have to pay money (called a 'toll) to cross the bridge. I was glad we could go to our hotel right away because I was super tired and needed to have a long rest.
In the evening, we drove to Redwood City. That is where DR H's office is.
Then we went for Mexican food it was really yummy. I had a taco salad and it didn't look like a kid's meal because it was so huge! After we went for a walk around Redwood city
My mom said everything was "CUTE" because there was a lot of trees decorated for Christmas. Then we went back to the hotel.
Bye for now,
