Children's day

Here in Brazil, we have something called Children's Day, which is an excuse for school to give us hollidays, and for us to get presents from our parents who still think we are 10 year olds.
This year, Children's day was on a tuesday, and fortunately, my school gives us pupils the whole week off, unlike the brazilian schools who only have until wednesday off. So on tuesday, my father, my sister and I went to the park on our bycicles for a lovely lunch at the MAM, "Museu da Arte Moderna". The park was teribly crowded, but it was great to see such good energy around. We later went to the 29th Annual "Bienal de Arte", also in the park, to see the amazing exibhition being displayed.
Later at night, after coming back from dinner, we did something very out of the ordinary for my family: we played a board game. it was incredible how much I had fun, we were so amazingly intent in the game, that time flew past us, and next thing i know, its 2:30 in the morning already... I ended up in second place in the game, but it didnt even matter after all.
It was definately a different day, but one i enjoyed tremendously, and hope to be repeating something similar in the future to come.
Who knows? Tomorrow is a new day. Anything can happen.
