I got to visit the new building. It is one mile long and ó mile wide; a total of1.7 million square feet. ActualAmazon trucks can offload andreload in the 86-truck loading dock.

The neatest part about the building is that it will have a train depot to load and off-load stuff too! The building will also have 96 air conditioners that will be put on the building by helicopters!

 Did you celebrate National Chocolate Chip Day? It happened last month, May 15 to be exact!

 According to National Day Calendar, Ruth Graves Wakefield of Whitman, Massachusetts, was probably curious about what a little bit of chocolate would be like added to her cookies. In 1937, while working at the Toll House Inn, Wakefield added cut-up chunks of a semi-sweet Nestle chocolate bar to her cookie recipe.

 The cookies were a huge success!

The Arizona Museum of Natural History in Mesa has a lot of fun things do to. When you go there, you’ll see some cool galleries. One of those galleries is about the early Spanish settlers in Arizona. It also has a dinosaur exhibit, and I liked the cowboy exhibit.

In the early Spanish settlers exhibit, there is a set of Conquistador armor and a replica of an old Catholic Church. In display cases there are weapons like a sword and musket.

 Recently my mom and I went to a traveling exhibit at OdySea in the Desert, Bodies Revealed. This exhibit was very fun and helpful. It had lots of different facts about the human body and they were interesting.

There were also models of the muscle and bone structures in the body. But, the bodies were real! They were real people! I know, crazy.
