Daddy said we were going to see Swan Lake with my big sister. Daddy left me and Merri at a Cafe across the street from the Opera House where Swan Lake was playing while he picked up the tickets. When he got back he said “change of plans, we are going to see Annie”
I am still going to have a great time with Daddy and
Me and Merri at Annie
I had fun in Philly I saw the Liberty Bell and I toured the Betsy Ross House.
We also went to Independence Hall.
Inside the Hall we saw the the chair George Washington sat in while they were writing the Constitution. This was the same place that the Declaration of Independence was signed eleven years later. This is what we saw when we went there.
George Washington was sitting here.
Today is the 17th of March. In Boston, it is a holiday called Evacuation Day. Dad says Evacuation Day is the day the British were driven from Boston during the Revolutionary War. I say it’s St Patrick’s Day! My Dad and my brother are both named Patrick, so it’s a special day for my family. Daddy had to do something to the car, fix the brakes or whatever. While he played with the brakes, me and PJ played with the dog. Dad promised we could make something special after he finished with the car. We decided we would make chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting and green shamrocks.
First Dad made up a recipe, he always makes up his own recipes, it usually comes out good so I don’t mind.
We got to use the big mixer. We put the butter and sugar in and started mixing.
Next we added melted chocolate, eggs, sour cream and vanilla.
We got out another bowl and mixed together the dry ingredients. We put flour, salt, baking powder and cocoa in the bowl. Dad’s really funny, he wrote in his recipe to sift everything together but he just mixed it up with a fork.
We added the dry ingredients to the big mixer, put in some water and mixed some more.
So that’s how we made Shamrock Cupcakes. Dad is making dinner and as soon as we eat we get to eat our cupcakes. I can’t wait.
Daddy says when snow is in the forecast you have to make french toast. I really like french toast in the winter time. Snow was forecast overnight, so today Daddy and I made french toast.
Daddy says we make our french toast with eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon.
We were using a whole loaf of bread so we needed a lot of eggs. The some vanilla, sugar and cinnamon and beat everything together.
When you have it all beaten together it’s time to cook.
When it is all done you get to sit down and enjoy a yummy treat for breakfast.
This was great, I hope we get more snow tommorow!
On our way to school this morning I saw a duck on Salem Street. I said” “Daddy, look there’s a Duck across the street.” He looked over and sure enough there was a mallard pecking at some snow.
A Duck on Salem Street
Here is a picture of the duck. Right after Daddy took this a car came by and the duck ran away up the street. I think that the duck was a mommy duck looking for Valentine’s Day treats for her little ducklings. But one thing is for sure it`s not everyday you see a Duck on Salem Street so this must be my lucky day.
