Today I went on a long walk with my dad, Alicia, Amelia, Jack, Carlo, Lucy, and Kara. It was slightly strenuous, but fun. We also went to the beach today.

This afternoon, Dad taught me how to play a card game, called “31”, which is similar to “21”. It is really fun. I was going to play poker, but one thing led to another, and we didn’t. However, I got to play a few rounds of dice poker with Dad.

This morning, we went to the Ponderosa Ranch in Nevada. It was a lot of fun. We got to ride in a hay wagon to breakfast. On the way, we got stopped by an outlaw. After breakfast, we took a walk to the ranch, and at high noon, there was a showdown in the middle of town. I got a cap gun as a souvenier, as well as a deck of cards and a pin with the characters of “Bonanza” on it.

When we got back from the Ponderosa, we started searching for Donna’s glasses again, and when we looked under the couch cushion, we all (Me, Kara, Carlo, and Jack) found them. Dad gave all four of us $1.00, and all six kids got to go to Baskin Robbins.

Today was Donna’s birthday. One of her presents was a coffee cup with a pomeranian on it. We went to the beach today. Donna had lost her $135 glasses, and Dad was going to pay us to find them. We had looked everywhere, but we couldn’t find them. At night, all of the kids (Me, Amelia, Carlo, Kara, Alicia, and Jack) went miniature golfing.
