Vacation Day # 4

Hi everyone I’m in the downstairs living room. Sorry about the late posts. This post is about Tuesday. Sit back and relax. Hope you enjoy this post.

Well Tuesday was the day we went to Marquette. We left around 12:00 pm for Marquette. I read Thea Stilton: Big Trouble in the Big Apple. When we arrived in Marquette we went to a place called Donckers. Their pasta and Parmesan was ok. There spilt pea soup was awesome though. The most coolest thing of all was that President Obama went there. Awesome right! After Donckers we went to a nearby clothing store called Chickadee. I got a dance shirt. It was really cool. We then went to another clothing store. There I found a pretty blue shawl. As I was admiring the shawl my mom came over to me and said it was time to go. My aunt and uncle stayed at the clothing store. My mom, dad, and I went to Gopher’s Bakery. Gophers was 6 blocks away. That may seem easy but the blocks in Marquette are long. 3 of the blocks were uphill and very steep. When we got to Gopher’s we ordered. My mom got Lemon Raspberry Cake. My dad and I got White Chocolate Death. White Chocolate Death is two layers of chocolate cake with chocolate fudge ganache, chocolate buttercream, chocolate frosting, and chocolate shavings. It was delicious. We met back at a pub we the walked to Ore dock. I had popcorn, pretzels, and cream soda. My aunt and dad had beer tray flights. They enjoyed them. We then drove home. On our way home we went to Lakenland. It was sculptures made of junk. We then went to Main Street Pizza. Now that was the best pizza I ever had. The crust was soft and the tomato sauce was creamy and delicious. We then came home to our lake view. I then went to bed. Adios.

Sincerely,
Mara

Vacation Day #3

Vacation Day #3

Hello everybody! I’m downstairs blogging. I just came in from swimming in 16 mile lake. So everyone sit back and relax. Enjoy the post.

I woke up at 8:00 am. I went downstairs and had a s’mores bar. Then I watched a tv show. Finally, my mom came down. I then had breakfast. My breakfast was peanut butter toast and oatmeal squares. I then went paddle boating with my dad. We paddled toward a little bay and around a little island. Then we had some waves. We luckily got through. The minute we had reassured our selfs a motorboat sent some waves our way. Luckily we got past those to. We then paddled over to a house. Things seemed off to us though. Then as we neared it my dad realized that wasn’t our house. Oops!!! We made it back safe and sound. I had a snack. Fudge Brownie Crackers. I then went to my room to continue Monsters Inc. My uncle and aunt were awake. We had lunch then. Lunch was toast with butter, scrambled eggs, and iced cinnamon rolls.

After lunch we headed down to the 2:00 pm pictured rocks boat tour. The road to our house was closed though. So we got to the 3:00 pm one. It was awesome. We saw so many rock formations. My favorite formation was Indian head. We also saw a few waterfalls. The chapel hill waterfall was my favorite. As we turned around the captain said that we were 65 miles from, where the Edmund Fitzgerald sunk!!! We went to Sydney’s for dinner I had salad and a baked potato. It was a delicious! We then went back home. I went swimming. Then I went to bed at 9:50. Bye!

Sincerely,
Mara

Vacation Day #2

Vacation Day #2

Hi again. I’m sitting in the sunroom looking out at our lake. It is called 16 mile lake. A few minutes ago I spotted a river otter. Anyway, you should probably read the first vacation day # 2 before this one. Anyway, I’ll start this post now.

So I had some peanut butter toast and doughnuts for breakfast. After that
I went for a morning walk around the house. I started out my the lake. I had lots of birds singing. After the nice walk I went to my loft room to read The Birchbark House by Louise Edrich. As I walked downstairs my dad asked if I wanted to go paddle boating. Of course I said yes. It was so fun. We loved it!

Vacation Day #2

Hello everybody. Greetings from Michigan. I’m in my loft bedroom right now. My moms english spot bunny Beatrix is hopping all over me. Bunnies are harder to take care of then you think. Beatrix is still crazy after the 6 hour drive here. It took 6 hours to get here! Just in the car. Not counting all the times we stopped. Anyway our house is so beautiful. I’m planning to go paddle boating with my dad on are private lake. I hope we can cook out tonight. My aunt and uncle are here too. They are enjoying it to. They’re downstairs still sleeping! Imagine that. Also my dad went to bed at 1 o’clock in the morning. My mom went to bed at 2:30 am. As for me I went to bed at 11:15 pm. We are an hour ahead of were I live. Well anyway I think I might go eat some doughnuts downstairs now. I’ll try to do another post today. Bye.

Your buddy,

Vacation Day #1

Hi everyone!!! I’m so excited. In 48 minutes I’m leaving for Munising, Michigan. It’s going to be a long ride. Probably will be driving for 4 hrs and 50 minutes. We will get off and stretch and eat a few times too. Will check in at 5:00 pm. I’m so happy. I’ll try to do another post tonight. It might have some words spelled wrong because I’ll be blogging on my iPad. I’ll try to post some pictures of the place. If I can’t when I get back I’ll have a picture post.  I really actually don’t have anything else to say. Only that I’m leaving in about 30 minutes or so. Bye!

Your traveler,
