My Trip to Winnipeg in February 2020

From February 17, 2020 to February 21, 2020 my mom and I went to Winnipeg.

On Monday February 17, we drove through Portage La Prairie and we saw the Largest Coca-Cola can in the world.

On Tuesday February 18, we went to The Canadian Museum of Human Rights.

We also went to the Manitoba Museum. A highlight of that was seeing the Nonsuch Ship. The Nonsuch Ship is a replica ship of the real ship, but this replica ship has actually gone on voyages. It was such a cool experience to see it! Here are some picture below.

We also went to Snow and Moon which has Korean ice cream with some friends. It was amazing!

On Thursday February 20, we went to the Canadian Mint, we went to Prairie 360 which is a restaurant that is 30 stories high and is a revolving restaurant that gives you a 360 degree view of Winnipeg. We also went to the Forks and saw Louis Riel’s grave.

From February 15, 2019 to February 24, 2019 my parents and I went on our 4th cruise.

On February 15 we spent the day flying to Miami.

On February 16 with how the flights worked out we were able to spend the day in Miami. We went to Bayside Marketplace and went on the Millionaire’s Row Cruise Tour.

The inventor of Instagram lives in this house.

We also saw the largest cruise ship in the world. Symphony of the Seas.

We also saw a house that had 32 palm trees and they all had to be imported from another country and they were $10,000 a tree. This house also had a tennis court and a greenhouse!

On February 17 we boarded the ship Carnival Magic to start our cruise.

I am officially a gold status cruiser!

On February 18, we went to Key, West Florida.

The Southern Most Point

Ernest Hemingway’s House

His library

All of the cats at his house are the original decesdants of the cats that Ernest Hemingway had. This cat has 6 toes on one paw.

On February 19, we had a day at sea.

One activity was life size Yahtzee. This was my team, and Lorraine, the lady in the middle is now a dear friend.

On February 20, we went to Roatan, Honduras.

Went to an iguana farm.

Toured a chocolate factory and tasted cacao beans.

Went to a beach on the tour.

Looking at the view of Roatan from the ship.

I got to play “Hasbro The Game Show”. I didn’t win but it was so fun! Here I am putting my card in the Monopoly money machine. I got to play the lifesize game of Simon.

On February 21, we went to Belize.

We toured a museum that used to be a prison and this used to be a prison cell and 13 people would be in here at one time!

This tree was real and made of mahogany wood.

There was a dog behind the blue “e” amd you couldn’t swim in the water because there were alligators in it.

Belize has the most beautiful water I have ever seen!

On February 22, we went to Cozumel, Mexico.

We toured a chocolate factory.

We also went in a submarine and saw a small shark! As well as many other fish.

On February 23, we had another day at sea.

We went to the Dr Suess Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast.

My mom and I went to a towel making class and I made a dog, an elephant and a dinosaur.

There was an ice carving.

We went to a balloon drop party.

On February 24, we flew home, but before we flew home I was able to get a picture of all the towels animals that we had in our room throughout the week together.

It was a great trip and I hope to go on another cruise again soon.

My Trip to Leduc and Edmonton in January 2019

From January 1st, 2019 to January January 6, 2019 with my mom. We stayed with our friends Lori and Ray who live in Leduc. When driving the morning of Jan 1st we were able to see the sunrise. It was gorgeous!! The day we got to Leduc we also went to Castrol Raceway and saw the “Magic of Lights”. On January 3 Emma came from Sylvan Lake and we made chocolate chip cookies. On January 4 Emma, my mom and I went to a telephone museum in Edmonton. It was so neat to see everything that was there! On January 5, my mom Lori and I went to Christmas Glow in Edmonton, which was the largest Christmas light display in Canada! On January 6, my mom and I drove back home. I had a great time seeing Emma, Lori and Ray and I hope to see them again soon!

My Trip to Minot in September 2018

From September 14, 2018 to September 17, 2018 my mom and I went to Minot.

We didn’t end up doing a lot of stuff in Minot since we were only there for two full days.

One highlight from Minot was we went to the Dakota Territory Air Museum. There were so many neat planes, as well as other things to see there. I highly recommend going there if you are in Minot.

There are only 6 of these in the entire world.

My other highlight when we were in Minot was seeing The Coloingsworth Family. That was the original reason why we went to Minot. The Collingsworths are southern Gospel singers, that travel all over the US and Canada, and some other countrys as well and share the gospel though music. They are a very talented family.

Kim is one of my favourite pianists.

I had a great time in Minot and I can’t wait to go back again.

My Trip to Red Deer and Sylvan Lake in July 2018

From July 11-16 I went to Red Deer for the Canadian Gospel Music Celebration. I also went to Sylvan Lake for the day to see my friend Emma.

July 11, we drove to Red Deer. For those of you who don’t know. Regina is a 9 hour drive to Red Deer which takes up all of the day.

July 12, in the morning we went to Kennedy’s Parables, and I was able to get a new piano book. The Canadian Gospel Music Celebration started at 6pm. For the 2nd part of the 1st half Dr David Jeremiah spoke. That was so cool. He spoke on David and Goliath. A quote that I liked that he said was “The story of David and Goliath teaches us to fight our battles head on.” Before and after he spoke there was singing from multiple different groups.


On July 13, I got together with my friend Emma from Sylvan Lake. We went to a music store and drove around Red Deer. We then drove to Sylvan Lake where she lives. We went minigolfing. We went to the beach to look around. We also went to her house. For lunch we went to Lokal. If you are in Sylvan Lake I would highly recommend you go there for a meal.


Emma is so dear to my heart.

We went back to Emma’s house, and then we went back to Red Deer, and her mom came with us for the Canadian Gospel Music Celebration. I was able to meet the Season 1 Winner of Amazing Race Canada, Tim Hague Sr. There were also numerous groups that were singing.


On July 14, in the morning we went to chapel, and heard 11th hour sing. In the afternoon we went to a hymn sing. I had never been to a hymn sing before and it was something I greatly enjoyed. There were many groups that sung that night as well, and the Canadian Gospel Music Celebration ended with all the groups doing another hymn sing together. After the Canadian Gospel Music Celebration was over we went with our friends Lori and Ray from Leduc to Dennys. I stayed with them in February 2018 for 10 days. And that is where I met Emma.


Not a picture from Red Deer. But Lori is so dear to my heart.

On July 15, we went home. A 9 hour drive again. But we stopped in Davidson at the biggest coffee cup and coffee pot in the world.


I’m so thankful that these two ladies are in my life!
