Off we go to America! Maki really wanted to meet everyone, he never been before yet he knew he'll friends and learn a new custom. Maki wanted to do American things, play their sports and eat american food.
On the way from the airport, Maki went shopping with Grandpa Chu. Maki bought a blue hat, a new soccer ball and a bright red shirt.
Maki played Tennis at the park!
Maki really enjoyed himself, he played soccer and mastered the game after three attempts.
Maki even met a new friend at the park. Todd was his name and he was the best player that Maki has ever seen. Maki ask Todd to teach him how to play basketball.
Maki made pasta for the first time. Grandmama Shai let him put the crush tomatoes in the pan and then he stirred. Maki really like how the food tasted and ate plenty.
Maki really had a full day in America. He's nicely tuck into bed he could already wait for the next day. Grandpa Chu plans on taking Maki to his very first baseball game. Grandmama Shai will take him later on that day for a stroll in the park and right after a hamburger and fries feast! Maki hopes he could forever stay in time and relive this moment.
