I’m still going to get some pictures posted from our trip (and from the rest of the summer)! But, in the meantime, here is the journal that my 8 yo son wrote on our trip.
I tried to copy it down exactly as he wrote it (misspellings and other errors included). One thing I didn’t do (because I couldn’t figure out how to) was to add in the little circles with "R"s in them that he put after all Registered Trademark names, such as Crayola and Subway. So cute!
B’s Pennsylvania Trip Journal
Today we travled from Ill. To PA. Delphos Ohio has very pretty houses. And we went to the A and W restaurant. And we went thru five states they are Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virgina, and Pennsylvania.
Today we went to the National Aviary. There I saw the FliteZone show. We drove thru mountains. I saw huge deep valleys, and stayed on a farm in Lanchaster County.
Today we went to Hershey’s Chocolate World. There I became a Hershey’s Official chocolate factory worker. I got a ID and a hat.
Today I milked a cow, I also ate at Subway, and went to Gettysburgh.
Today we went to the Crayola factory. There I got a packet of crayons, a marker, and a bag of Model Magic. I also stayed in a hotel in New Jersey.
Today we went to Independence Hall, a Ben Franklin Museum, a archeology museum, the Liberty Bell, Christ Church, and Elfreth’s Alley.
Today we rode the Cape May Ferrie from N.J. to DE. It was fun, and we went to the beach twice.
Today it was realy hot. So hot that we just had to go to the beach again. So we did. At the beach we saw about five army soldiers full in military uniform. We also saw some Amish too. And a military helecopter flew over our heads. The waves were awesome I went into the water. I also saw a dolphin. And ate at Sonics. I had a grilled cheese and a Ice cream. It was vanilla ice cream with M and M’s, whipped cream, and a cherry on top.
Today Dad, J and me went to the International Spy Museum. It was so awesome. There were gadgets and gizmoes of the F.B.I. and the C.I.A. While Mom, M, B, T, and L went to the zoo.
