Marco's Road Trip

My Road Trip To South California
& Hollywood Universal Studios.






Last winter break, my mom drove like 8 hours to Oxnard, California. The first day, we went to the beach, my mom started eating a bag with chips the seagulls came to eat her chips and she was upset and hungry.

I swam in the sea but it was cold.  I made sand castles with my hands and special equipment. We were throwing rocks and we were doing a competition to see who rocks went further. Guess who won?????????   


Next day I went with my uncle Neal to the Laser Tag Winter Special of two hours. I had a Great Time with my uncle. We had a delicious lunch at Mcdonalds.

My mom had a surprise for me, tickets for Hollywood Universal Studios. Was Awesome

My favorite rides  was The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, The Simpsons, The Minions and the worst ride ever was The Revenge of the Mummy.
Again my uncle Neal took me to the Movie Theater to watch Jumanji. After movies we went to the Nike store we buy tennis shoes and a sweatshirt for me.
We stopped at the Disney store to buy some toys for me.

I had a great time with my mom and my relatives. I can’t wait to go back.

Kelsey's Incredible Road Trip

My amazing road trip of summer 2017


Hi my name is Kelsey and i’m going to tell you about my road trip! It was super fun! First we went to the Griffith observatory in Hollywood. We saw the stars through a big telescope!














We  went dolphin watching. It was so cool. Did you know that dolphins like kids?








The next day we went to Disneyland!








Then we drove up the coast and had dinner in Santa Barbara at a seafood restaurant and we saw them come back with live crabs and sea urchins!









Then we drove to San Luis Obispo and stayed the night at this crazy hotel called the Madonna Inn and stayed in a crazy room that was themed oak leaves!



The next day we went to Solvang and it was so burning hot that we didn’t want to go outside so we went to breakfast. My mom and I got a pedicure and ice cream and went to a crazy clock shop it was cool!
We went back to the Madonna Inn and stayed the night.











The next day we went to Hearst castle it was so beautiful! Did you know that everything in it is from around the world?





















Then our parents surprised us and we spent the night in a teepee on a farm! They had fresh strawberries, a horse, two goats, some geese,  some chickens, two dogs and one blind rabbit. That night we heard coyotes and my 14 year old brother got super scared! He kept making desperate attempts to close the entrance!

Earlier that day we went to the beach and dinner at a Mexican restaurant and I named a drone Narwal we also saw tons of birds!
The next day we went to Dennis the Menace Park.

The following day we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and I got to scuba dive!


We had a fun but cold picnic at the Beach!
That was the last day of our trip. It was super fun!

Vera's Day!

Vera’s Blog

Today, I spent the day with my cousin, Julia. First, we decided to ride bikes. My neighborhood has a lot of houses, but I know some cool parks and biking trails.


First stop on the bike trail was my favorite park. It has monkey bars, swings, and a gymnast bar. I like to practice my tricks, like hanging upside down.


We also saw some flowers growing near the park, which I picked for my mom.


Can’t have an adventure without a yummy snack, so Julia and I decided to go to Starbucks. I got a green tea frappuccino, and a rice crispy.

After that, it was time for me to head home and share my adventures with you. Hope you enjoyed coming along this fun adventure with me! Gloomy days don’t stop us from still having fun!

Peace out,
Vera

Mackenzie's Trip to Minnesota!

Mackenzie’s awesome trip to Minnesota
For thanksgiving our whole family decided to rent a house in Minnesota and everyone in our family will be there! On November 19th we flew there on an airplane. We had a layover in Denver which I wasn't happy about because our first flight took off at 5:00 pm. When we finally landed in Minnesota at midnight, (Minnesota time) we drove to the hotel we stayed at and went to sleep.The next morning I was sooooo excited because my dad said we were going to pick my grandma and then go to the Mall of America!!!!!!!!! My dad ordered a shuttle to get us to the Mall of America.

The driver was nice enough to give us sea life tickets. My favorite part of the Mall of America was the amusement park!

Log Ride at Mall of America Amusement Park w/ Dad and Maddie

The first ride we went on was the log ride witch I think was my favorite. After that we went to sea life. It was soooooooooooooooo cool! We saw all kinds of sea creatures.

After our visit the shuttle picked us up and we went to bed.Tuesday was my favorite day! We got to see bald eagles in the wild! That was on the way to the raptor center in Minnesota.When we finally got to the raptor center I saw a place where they kept live eagles. There were two bald eagles and a golden eagle. We also went to a show where they taught us about raptors. It was so cool seeing the bald eagles. We saw 1 % of all the bald eagles in Minnesota.

On Wednesday we checked out of our hotel and we were going to the big house. On our way to the big house, we stopped by our cousins house. They were coming with us! Finally it was time to go to the big house. My dad said there will be lots of family members, and he was right, lots of family members came.
My first Cousin once removed Heather and my Auntie Erynn


The next morning I woke up knowing that today was thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!!! We had lots of fun that day. My favorite part was the thanksgiving feast! Everyone at the dinner table eating and talking. After dinner we ate dessert which was ice cream and pumpkin pie. Then it was time to go to sleep. Friday was also awesome,in the night we went to Sky zone. There was a place in Sky zone where you can do obstacles, but they're really hard. On saturday we all checked out of the big house. After that we went to the children’s museum. There is a place in there called The Scramble. Its so fun. You get to climb all over the place!
My little sister Vivienne on the very top of the 3 story Scramble!

After the visit to the children’s museum we went to my great aunt and uncle's house. We talked and then went to bed. The next day we went to the Minnesota Zoo! Lot’s of the birds were in for the winter, but the aviary had birds in it like Summer Tanagers and White-Eyed Vireos. After that we went back to Chris and Anders house to have a birthday party for me. It wasn't really my birthday, but it was coming up. Someone brought their pet African Grey Parrot to my party!
On Monday we went to Robert’s Bird Sanctuary. My dad spotted a sharp- shinned hawk on a tree. We watched it for a while, then it flew away. We also took a trail down to the Mississippi river.

There was not much action at the river so we headed back. On the way back from the river it was bird heaven, birds in every bush! I was so happy that night. Tuesday was the day that we flew back to california. But first we went to The State of MN Natural Wildlife Refuge. The inside part was closed, but the trails were open. On the trail we saw lots of birds, but no bald eagles. After that we headed to the airport. We had three hours till we took off. After both flights we went to our house to go to sleep.
