Last Friday, my dad and I went to my Grandma's house. We went hunting in the woods and only saw two birds. When we got out of the car, they flew away.
Saturday, my Uncle Steve joined us and I got my first kill. I hit the partridge right in the breast. Soon afterwards, I severly injured another partridge. Uncle Steve finished it off. So, I called it a kill and a half.
Dad got a kill. He blew the bird's head right off. Then Uncle Steve got an epic kill. He turned and shot a partridge in mid-flight.
We saw ten partridge throughout the day and we had four of them in the bed of the truck. I will always remember that day!

Today my mom and I went to Augusta to the Maine State Museum. I panned gold and learned where there are good places to go panning. We also learned about our water source- how it effects the animals and humans.
Tonight at 5:30 pm I am going to the Topsham Public Library to play some trivia. There is going to be pizza and prizes.

On Monday, Sally, Mom and I went to Haven's Candy Factory. We took a free tour and got some caramel popcorn. We pressed a button to fill a mold with chocolate. We got a box filled with treats. We put our treats on a conveyor belt and gave them a chocolate bath. My mom put coconut on her chocolates, Sally put coconut on some of her chocolates, and I put chocolate sprinkles on mine. We got to wrap taffy and bring it home.
It was the best Columbus Day ever!

On Saturday, October 1, Grandma Curtin, Mom, Dad, Aunt Maureen and I went to Catherine's Restaurant to celebrate Grandma's birthday. I tried escargot (snails). It was like eating mushrooms. I liked them. They were really good. I also had grouper. It's a fish. It was similar to haddock, but worse. I was not impressed. Then we had dessert. It was like a chocolate volcano without the center. It was to die for!
