My family and I decided to go to Banff and Jasper National Parks for the summer. First we went to Jasper, and we lived in a very cozy lodge. At Jasper we hiked for about 5 Km everyday and sometimes when we go canoeing, we would hike for about three Km that day. At Jasper, we saw at least two wild animals everyday. We even saw two black bears once! After that we went to Banff. More people lived at Banff and we didn't see as many animals as we did in Jasper, because at the highways the animals were blocked by fences. As we got to Banff, we had as much in Banff as in Jasper. Canoeing in lake Louise, and hiking at Emerald lake, they were both very fun! We hiked at Banff a lot with mountains all around us, and sparkling lakes near us, it felt very relaxing. At night time we see Deer grazing the beautiful green grass, silently munching in the fields. At Banff and Jasper I think I liked to watch the Animals and look at the landscape the most. I would like to go to Banff and Jasper again. Because they both have very beautiful sight and both are really fun. Nothing could make our trip better than if already was. This trip is the best trip I have went to in my life.
Perks was the Porter and he was a friend to the children who lived at the Three Chimneys.
When the children had heard that no one celebrated Perks' birthday, they decided to make this one special.
Then they went to all of the other houses and asked the people that lived there to give something for Perks' birthday, because they themselves didn't have enough money. Later, as they gathered together all the presents, they found that they had a tidy amount of presents for Perks.
On Perks' birthday, they went over to Perks' house. Then, as Mrs. Perks looked at all the presents, she started to cry! The children were horrified and asked her why she was crying, and she told them that Perks never had a such a good birthday before.
After that, as Mrs. Perks went show Perks all his gifts, Bobbie gasped because she forgot to put the labels on! The labels had the names of everyone that gave presents to Perks, and if the labels weren't on the presents, Perks might think that the presents were charity. A few seconds later they heard Perks say in a loud, angry voice that he did not stand for charity. Then they knew that Perks was a proud man.
Immediately, they tried to convince Perks that the presents were not charity and that it was only to show their appreciation for his kindness. Then Bobbie showed Perks the labels that were not on, and Perks finally accepted the presents. Lastly, they had afternoon tea with Mrs. and Mr. Perks. Then Perks said a little short speech. After tea time the children went home, full and content.
This is how I think that The Railway Children could end:
The Russian gentleman that mother took in felt better after a few months, so he went on a hunt for his family. He promised to mail them if he found his family. In a few months, the railway children received two letters - one from Dad and one from the Russian gentleman. The Russian gentleman stated that he had found his family, and now they were happily living in a small house. On the other hand, Dad stated that he had found a new job and would come home as soon as possible. Every one was very excited. Then, as they all heard a knock on the door, all of them hoped that it would be Father. As Mother opened the door, trembling with excitement, behold, standing right outside of the door was Father! The children were overjoyed, hugging their father over and over again, while their Mother had tears of happiness streaming down their face. Then they got hot tea and buns for their father, who was very cold and hungry after a night's travel. When their Father felt better, they travelled to their home sweet home.
