Celebrity of the week Kadyn

My Maui Family Vacation by Kadyn
Every  year my family and I go to Maui during Spring break and celebrate Easter. We have an Easter egg hunt on the beach. The hotel has a big Easter celebration. We are on the island for two and a half weeks. I swim in the pool, slide on the water slide, snuba, play on the beach, snorkel and visit the activity center.
On Easter morning, I go on an Easter egg hunt on the beach with my family. I hunt for eggs that have candy and sometimes money in them. The hotel has an Easter egg hunt outside in the garden area overlooking the pools and the beach. There are hundreds of easter eggs and a lot of kids. There are only a few golden eggs to find with special notes in them. I've never found a golden egg yet, but my friend Mia that lives on the island has found one. I get my face painted like an Easter bunny. They have a lot of fun things to do.
I swim every day in the pool and the ocean. I snuba in the pool. Snuba is when you use a regulator to breath air under water. Snuba is like scuba diving. I snorkel with a lot of fish in the ocean every year. Last year I saw a turtle real close. My brother saw an eel.
I visit the activity center at the hotel a lot when I'm in Maui. A few things that I do at the activity center are bowling, miniature golfing, and a lot of arts and crafts. I've painted a coconut, jewelry box, ornaments and made a fresh flower lei.

Celebrity of the Week-Luke

I’m going to be blogging about the great week I spent with my Auntie Karen and all the fun things we did for fall break.
Auntie Karen flew from Boise, Idaho to play with me. At the airport, I ran to hug her and then we drove home to my house.  When we got home, she gave me a present but it wasn’t a present for me. She got a Kreo Lego truck set that she wanted me to help her build for her grandson, Tanner. I love Tanner because he is funny. While my Auntie Karen was visiting I made videos of myself and sent them to Tanner. Then he would send videos back to me. [HERE IS A PICTURE OF TANNER]
The next day, we went to the Dollar Store to buy things to make Minecraft swords. We bought special paper, glitter glue spray, glue sticks and aluminum foil.  First, we weaved the special paper together to make the Minecraft pattern. Next, we “modge-podged” the woven paper to hold it together. Then, we pasted the paper to poster board and cut out the sword shapes. Finally, we sprayed the swords with gold and silver glitter glue.  When we were all done, we had sword fights against each other at the Park. [HERE IS A PICTURE OF THE MINECRAFT SWORDS WE MADE]Swords.JPG
While my Aunt Karen was visiting, we adopted our new dog Callie from the Front Street Animal Shelter. When we brought Callie home, we gave her a bath. Then, I played tug-o-war with her and snuggled her. [HERE IS A PICTURE OF MY DOG CALLIE]
My Auntie Karen played Legos with me and we built a forest. We made Lego soldiers and put them in the forest to hide from bad guys.

Finally, Auntie Karen had to go home. I was very sad to see her go but luckily I get to go to Boise to see her during Thanksgiving break. [HERE IS A PICTURE OF MY AUNTIE KAREN]

Celebrity of the Week-Chase

Every year my family takes a trip to Trinity Center, California for a family reunion. There is a swimming hole we visit called Mann’s Hole. This area is a deep, pool are in the Trinity River. There are rocks that me and my family love to climb and jump off. I started jumping off the low rocks when I was 4. This past year I jumped off one of the highest rocks. It is kind of scary when you first start jumping but eventually you will get over it. I jump with my dad, grandpa, aunt, and cousins. Normally to warm up a little bit we lean against the other rocks that are behind us. My dad is at the bottom and ready to help me.  

One year we went all of the way to the bottom of Mann’s Hole which is 20 feet deep. We dove down to catch two crawdads which look like crabs. We named one of them Luke Skywalker because he lost an arm in the fight with the other one we found. And then we tried to sink ourselves with huge rocks. I love  Trinity Center! Here are some pictures of me jumping:

My Summer Vacation
By Emily Meyer

This summer I went on a vacation with my family.  We went to Zion and Yellowstone National Parks.

Zion is in Utah and Yellowstone is in Wyoming.  


We went to Zion Park first.  It was very hot there.  I climbed on a lot of red rocks.  It was fun.  I walked under waterfalls.  I walked in a river and my shoes got wet.  I got to use binoculars to see up close.  I saw a lizard, deer and a chipmunk that I named Alvin.

After we went to Zion, we drove to Yellowstone National Park.  We stayed in Idaho.  We were there on the first day of summer.  It was cold and it evened snowed!  I had to use my umbrella to keep dry.  I saw steam come out of the ground.  I saw buffalo.  They were huge!  

I had a great summer vacation!
