Question Sept. Journal: Mis vacaciones de verano

Okay so the El diario de septiembre: ¿Quién soy? was not the right diary entry. I made a mistake. this month's journal entry is Mis vacaciones de verano.

I will first write in English, maybe I'll ask some questions on translations.


***

This summer we did not do much. We stayed home most of the time. However, we did go to Sandcastle, a waterpark, on August 17th. It was very fun. One week before that was my birthday. We didn't do anything special, but we did get to eat ice cream cake.


***

Here are a couple questions before I continue. I want to know the following translations, but I will still check the dictionary.

1. waterpark
2. ice cream cake


Currently I am working on the Spanish version of my not yet completed journal ^.

You can add too, some books you have read and liked (if you have read, I think you like reading right?)

Conjugate the verb in the first sentence. Make sure you use the right tense.

The verb in the second sentence is conjugated, but it isn't in the correct tense.
The verb in the third sentence is conjugated correctly (it's the same in the present and the preterite for that person). You're missing a word in the third sentence, though. It is used to introduce a direct object that is a person.

You can omit the subject pronoun (nosotros) in both the first and second sentences, like you did in the third one.
The first verb is now conjugated, but it's in the present tense. It needs to be in a past tense.
The second verb is almost right. There's a spelling error in it.
The last sentence is perfect.

The second correction needs to be in the preterite tense. You're almost there!
