During our fall break we drove to Socal and went to Harry Potter World in Universal Studios and Disneyland! We got super cool wands that you could use to cast spells all around Hogsmeade. We stayed in five different hotels! Here is the first part, Harry Potter World!

Here is one of the spells we got to cast with our wands.
The last few days of our trip were good. We went to an awesome bookstore and bought some books. On our way home we stopped in Bend, Mt. Shasta, and Fairfield. It started to get super hot, but we missed the heatwave in Portland and at home. We are great at road trips, as long as we have Harry Potter audiobooks, iPads, snacks and stop a ton.
We stayed in Portland for four days. The first day was tons and tons of hiking. We did the longest and highest hike we’ve ever done, Multnomah Falls! We were really tired after 15 mins, but then Mommy and Daddy bribed us to go to the top. It was a good bribe that gave us tons of energy, and we raced to the top. The next day, we drove really far to eat some cheese.
We made it to Oregon the next day and stopped in Eugene. We got to listen to some live music at their Saturday Market, got our nails painted, and of course, played at a park while Mommy and Daddy got boba. That was our last stop before finally making it to Portland!
The next day, we went on a short hike to a beautiful waterfall called Burney Falls! It was probably the best we’ve ever seen, and it was a very short hike too. We had lots of time so we went back toward our hotel in Burney, had a yummy lunch with lots of fried food, and then went bowling!
As soon as we got out of the last day of school, we went on a road trip to Portland! Since we are not good at long car rides, Mommy and Daddy decided to drive only a little bit each day, so it took us 4 days to get there! We stopped at a lot of places, slept a lot in the car, listened to two whole Harry Potter books, and ate sooooo many snacks.
We had a lot of fun on the second day and got way better at skiing! We even got to go on the slope with jumps and tricks, and were pretty good at skiing around them. It was so hot, we don’t know how the snow didn’t all melt. We didn’t wear any jackets or goggles, and sunburned our faces and eyes. Can’t wait to go back!
This spring break, we went skiing at Lake Tahoe! Actually it was a mountain near Truckee. We never saw Lake Tahoe. We tried to go last year but Kayli got Coronavirus so we had to cancel everything. This year though, we took a nice drive to Tahoe with a super fun stop in Sacramento. We ate tons of snacks and ordered lots of mac and cheese that we did not eat. We learned to ski and we are so good! Leia fell off the ski lift once but went right back on and even learned to jump! Mommy and Daddy are so happy that we love this super expensive sport!
