When we started the 5 hour trip to Marco island I was so excited for the trip ahead of me. When I woke up we went to a place called Nene’s. They have great food there. We go there every year.
The pool at our vacation house was nice – because we get to swim whenever we want. But this year it seemed warm and wasn’t too refreshing. When we got fishing ready it was fun but we didn’t catch anything. When I went fishing in the morning my brother caught a snapper. After that I caught a fish. Catching a fish is really good because we are trying to win a trophy. Last year my brother won.
We always like to go to a restaurant called the sand bar. There are these game there like pool. We went there again and my mom gave us a quarter and I spent it. Then we looked for more money than we found $5.15. Me and my brother split it with my brother.
When my family went on the pontoon boat I was so excited to fish. When we got to our spot we started to fish. That day I caught a couple snappers, a big snook, and a gar that no one has done before.
When we went on a charter boat to go deep sea fishing I was kind of nervous because I don’t like boats being rocky and so far out. Any way it was still fun. When I was out there I caught 16 fish in total. We went to a hotel called a Marriott to eat and catch Pokemon.
I love going to Marco Island and it’s something I want to do every year forever!
The things did in Chicago we went to Lake Michigan 3 times. The first on we went to had a big swimming area. The second one we went to had lots of rocks and hurt my feet. The third one also had lots of rocks. My favorite was the first on.
We went to a pool do times and a other one oncethe first pool had 2 divining boards. The other pool had a diving board and a high dive. My favorite was the he second one because the high dive.
We went to a 4th of July party. We went fishing, playing outside, and made a fort. After that we had an other party. We played badminton and we watched the fireworks. The fireworks were so beautiful.
Then this new app came out called Pokemon Go now when ever we go places we collect the all.
We went to a band Billy Elton. The played Billy Joel songs. They were a good band. Most of the song I knew.
We also went to a carnival but we didn’t go on any rides. There was two bands one was right next to us. We played with our little cousin.
My favorite part about Chicago was hanging out with my cousin because she is such a funny baby.

When I woke up at 6:20 I was so excited to go to St. Augustine. We went to my school and everyone was boarding the buses. It was a two hour drive. When we got there I was so excited.
First we went to go learn about 1/3 of a really old ship and they were still building it. After that we went to the blacksmith. I liked it because you could smell all of the iron. Then we talked about the gunsmith.
We went to a watchtower we could we the fort from there it was so awesome. When we got down we went to a trolley tour we and went by the fort and our guide said if you go deep enough in the water you can still see heads.
After that we went to the fort. We got to sit on the beds that people who fought slept in. It was made of hay and a small cover. We went to the top of the fort were all of the cannons were.
Then we when’s to the pirate museum. It was awesome. They said pirates don’t actually say rrrr. We learned about Blackbeard.
I had a great time a St Augustine.
When we got back from school we went straight to the airport. I was so excited to go to California. When we got on the plane I was so nervous. When we landed in our time it was 11:00 but in California time it was 8:00.
When we landed we were so tired. The next day we went to Disneyland and went to Hyper Space Mountain. It was so different from Disney World. Then we went to go do some shopping. I wanted a baseball that says Disneyland on it and a new Star Wars jacket. The jacket was $65.00! So I got the jacket and the baseball. I like both of them. The thing I like about the baseball is its hard. I like the jacket because it is very soft. We also bought a hidden Mickey Mouse book.
The next day we went to go eat Mickey Mouse waffles they were so soft so they were really good. I want my dad to make those waffles. Then we went to the park to go on buzz lighter. It was good because my mom didn’t know all the good spots. Then we went to a roller coaster that’s called California Scream’in. It was so fun and it went upside down. When you go upside down look up and there is a hidden Mickey.
At night we went to a parade that was awesome. I was so excited for it. When the parade was over there was a light show with fire works.
The next day we went to Warner brothers studio. It was awesome. We even got to see all working Batman cars. We got to see the new Batman car. All of them actually work. That is amazing. Then we went to the Gilmore Girls set and my mom freaked out. She was so excited.I had so much fun at the Warner Brothers studio.
The next day we packed up and went to the airport and almost missed our flight so we didn’t get to eat breakfast. When we got on the plane we ordered food right away. I had a great time at California.
First we go to the airport and get on the plane to Chicago. I was very nervous. I was nervous because i don’t really like planes. I’m scared its going to crash.Three hours later we get there and walked around the city and saw Buckingham Fountain and see the Willis Tower. Then we went to a restaurant and ate. It was good and they have onion loaf.

Then we went to my aunts house. I got to meet my new cousin Robin. Next we ate pizza for dinner. Then next day we wake up early to go to Lake Geneva then we go in the lake and swim. The temperature was 72 degrees. It was spring fed. Then we went to eat lunch. We ate lunch at a diner. Then we go swimming again. Then we played blackjack and the practice round I went all in I thought I was going to get lucky but I didn’t. Then I put one in and I won the next round then I won’t the two rounds. Then I lost and lost then I put all in then everybody was laughing I was the only one serious then I won. The next we go fishing we caught nothing. The rest of the day we went tubing it was fun. I loved when i fell off and stood up and fell back. I also went backwards and went on my knees.

Then we went back to my aunts house and played pool and went asleep Then we went to the dunes to go sand surfing, but it wasn’t really fun because it was hot out and the sand was hot. It was really disappointing. Then we went to a beach and swam.
Then we drove to Tennessee and got to the house we were staying at, that had a air hockey table and a pool table and a movie theater. Most of the time we played pool and hockey. Then we went out and went to eat dinner. We ate dinner at a brewery. Then we went to a coaster over a Mountain, it went really fast.
The next day we woke up to go zip lining and white water rafting. First we went zip lining and it took a while to get the stuff on. It was more fun than I thought. I liked when you were high and it went fast. Then we went to go white water rafting. We get on the bus to go white water rafting. When we got in our raft and we hit a big rock. The tube went really fast and that’s what I really liked about it. The stream was level 4 in about the middle the instructor told us one time he was rafting with his friends and a water moccasin jumped in the boat and his friends jumped out of the boat and couldn’t get back in the boat. The best part about this trip was white water rafting.
Time to check out the dunes.
Just kidding – it’s not awesome!
Swimming in Lake Michigan!
We got in the car last Sunday and took a road trip to St. Augustine. The first thing we did was s play in the park. Then we ate a pizza bagel at an all bagel restaurant. Then we went mini golfing. Next we went to see a pirate ship and it was big. After that we to play on the canons.
After when we played with the canons we went to eat dinner. For the first place we went to was Harry’s but the wait was to long it was 45 minutes. The second place we went to was Columbia I kind of liked it but my mom loved it.
After that my dad got a Popsicle and my brother got soft served ice cream. My favorite part of the day was when we played mini golf. I think it was fun because we saw lots of cool things like graves and we almost saw a ghost at the end.
