A fun filled day in Monterey!

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Saturday I went on a day trip to Monterey. My mom and I started our day by getting a tour of the Monterey state historic park. The tour started at the custom house that is located right next to old fishermen’s wharf. My mom and I were the the only people who showed up for the tour so it ended up being a private tour. The tour was very informative about the history of Monterey. My favorite part of the tour was the beautiful gardens we got to vist. One of gardens had Koi fish. I loved watching them swim around. The tour ended at the Pacific house. The thing I loved about this place the most was that it had a free museum. There were several interesting exhibits to see here. There is also a gift shop. I got some souvenires here. There is also a gift shop at the custom house. After exploring the museum we went back down to the wharf. There were a bunch of sea lions hanging out near the wharf. I got some really good pictures of them. I have visited the wharf before and I have a favorite gift shop and a favorite candy store there. I went to both. I got some great souvenires at the gift shop including a new snow globe for my collection! At the candy store I got a bunch of taffy! I love getting taffy at this candy store. The have barrels full of it and there are so many flavors to choose from. After shopping we walked a little bit on a path near the wharf. We did walk very far because we were in a two hour parking spot and we needed to move. After our adventures at the wharf we went to meet my dad for lunch. We went to a restaurant called Tarpy’s Roadhouse. The food was great and so was the location. There was a pond here that had lots of turtles in it. I had a great day in Monterey!

One great day !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Last Saturday was a really fun day. I spent it with two of my favorite people doing some of the things I enjoy most . Without further delay here we go !

 

 

One great day !

My great day started by waking up with my friend Amy all ready in the house. She had spent the night before and we had a good time watching movies until we got tired . Around noon with met a friend of mine in town. Then we all walked to a local thrift store. The thrift store closes  pretty early in the day so we didn’t have much time there but we were able to find some pretty cool things. Both of my friends found a book or two and I got some books, a Barbie doll , a craft kit and a Disneyland zip up sweatshirt. As we were getting ready to get in line to pay, Amy saw the sweatshirt and knew I would love it. I quickly tired it on since it was a smaller size then I normally wear. I was so happy that it fit and was only a little tight.  After that we headed to lunch at a restaurant that we all three enjoy. Lunch was awesome we knew the food there was good but it was also nice to just to sit down and talk for awhile. After that we went to another place that we all like to go to called Petroglyph. At this art studio you choose a ceramic piece to paint then pick it up later. All three of us chose animals to paint. I chose a duck and my friends chose a porcupine and a turtle. We had a good time choosing paint for our creations and painting them. Everyone’s creation turned out beautiful if you ask me! We had had two more stops  before we called it a day , a coffee shop and the candy store ! Which I think is a perfect way to end a fun filled day ! So, there you have it my great day ! I hope all of you are having great days as well.  Rock On – Christina Epperly

 

 

 

Good Will trip 5/11/2019

Hello, my bucket list friends ! This weekend I went on a shopping trip to one of my favorite stores the Goodwill ! I thought it would be fun to show you what I got so let’s get to it !

 

Good Will trip 5/11/2019

Whenever I go thrift shopping I have a few things I keep an eye out for. My Little Pony and Disney items are always at the top of my list but I have gotten much more picky about the things I end up bringing home with me. On this trip the one Disney item I ended up buying was a cute shirt with Mickey and Minnie on it. I tried on a bunch of other shirts but this one was my favorite. I found two My Little Pony Items the first one was an  Equestria girls Celestia doll. I was very excited when I saw her because she is more of minor character in the the world of My Little Pony so she can be harder to find. The 2nd My Little Pony item I got was a book full of short My Little pony stories. In addition to those items I found a new pair of shorts of summer , a very cool California shirt with a bear on it and , a Los Angles Mug ! It was a pretty successful Thrift store trip and I can’t wait to see what I find next time !

Fun at the Oakland Zoo

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I got to do something really fun this weekend . I  went to the Oakland Zoo for the first time .  My mom and I had a great time exploring the zoo . Let’s getting going so I can tell you all about it .

 

 

Oakland zoo adventure April 2018

I have been to a  good amount zoo’s before including the San Diego and San Francisco zoo (both of those were bucket list items) but I had not gotten the chance to visit the Oakland zoo until last Saturday .  The zoo is about an hour away the traffic on the drive there  was not too bad but the zoo it’s self was very packed . I knew it would be that way though it was a very sunny Saturday and in the bay area lots of places where going to be packed but the crowds did not stop my mom and I from having a great time . The Oakland zoo is a pretty good-sized zoo and there are many animals to see . My favorite were the fruit bats ! They were so big ! They sleep upside down with their wings wrapped around them . It was amazing to watch them unwrap their huge wings ! I even got to see one eat a banana . I also enjoyed seeing the elephants , zebras and petting goats at the petting zoo .  We also stopped by the gift shop where I got a key chain a pencil , a reusable bag with a turtle on it and my favorite thing that I got was a new snow globe to add to my collection ! My mom and I had lunch at the zoo the veggie burgers were wonderful . We ended our trip to the zoo with are ride on the gondola the wait was long but the views where beautiful . If your ever in the area I recommend going to visit this fun zoo . I hope I get to go again sometime .

Super Run 5k February 2018

Hello ,My bucket list friends ! One of my goals for 2018 is to get back into doing 5k races. I’m happy to say that I recently did my first race of the year it was a really fun! Keep reading to hear all about it !

 

Super Run 5k February 17th 2018

I really enjoy doing 5k races but it had been a while since I had done one because I was in massage school for a year . Now that I have more time I’m excited to get back into doing something I love . The day of the race I was excited and ready to go . As you might have guessed the race had a super hero theme. A lot of the racers dressed up in some really fun and creative costumes but I stuck to my workout pants and a purple shirt . I was doing the race with my mom and we both wanted to walk the 5k so we stayed together during the race . The race was held at a beautiful park that I had been to before but I had never done a race at . The was a lot of great scenery to look at as my mom and I fast walked our way through the race . When we got close to the finish I ran across the finish line ! I was so happy to get my awesome finisher’s medal . Not all 5k races give out finishers medals but I love when they do and that was one of the reasons that I chose this race . I had a great time with my mom at the Super 5k and I can’t wait until I get to do another one !
