Florida Day 3

On Sunday I woke mommy and daddy up again--so much fun! They told me that we were going to Miami Beach to ride on a duck! I was very excited as duck is one of my few words. But the car ride was so long I fell asleep.

After I woke up we went to see the duck. It turned out to be a duck boat, like the one I rode on in Boston with Ah Mah and Ah Gong.

The boat drove around town and then splashed into the water. We went by all these famous people's houses. I never heard of any of them before, but they look pretty nice. I wonder if I will live in a house like this when I grow up?

After the boat ride, we went back to Great Aunt Ann's restaurant to meet Aunty Lana and Uncle Tony. I hadn't seen him in a long time, since their wedding. I was very happy to play with him again. He's a lot of fun!

They took us to see the birds and animals at this place called Parrot Jungle Island. I was a little scared of the loud screeching parrots. Daddy got to feed them, and one jumped on his arm. I didn't want any part of that! The keeper came and pushed it off with a big stick, but not before daddy got to see how sharp his claws were.

Later we went to see the petting zoo. I like the goats. I was saying "Muh" to the goats, which is what my book says goats say.

It was really fun there, and I saw so many animals! Later we met Uncle Chai and his family for dinner. We ate at a place called Sushi Siam. The food was yummy, and Uncle Chai's family even got me a present! Thanks Uncle Chai!

Tomorrow, the beach, flamingos, and one of the highlights of my trip: "Mickey!"
