The Greek Festival’s Rides

My grandpa, uncle, aunt, cousin, mom, dad, sister and I all went to an amazing Greek Festival.  There were yummy snacks and great music, but I want to talk about the fun rides.  To go on the rides at the festival we needed to buy tickets.  Each ticket cost $1.50! My mom and dad bought fifty tickets, it cost them fifty dollars to buy all of the tickets because they bought it in bulk.  I wanted to go on a ride that was called The Rockstar, it would rock you high up until it eventually slows down.  My sister, dad and I all went on the ride.  Next to The Rockstar was Alien Invasion, it was shaped like a UFO.  This ride wasn’t as fast as I thought it would be faster than the speed it was going.  The way the Alien Invasion worked was people would step inside the UFO and it would start spinning.  After about 5 minutes of it spinning it will go a little slower and it makes you think it will stop, but it goes faster after it slows down!  After we got off the ride we had a few tickets left, my sister and I wanted to go on The Sizzler.  The Sizzler would spin around as the seats would spin as well.  My sister was squished in the seat because I fell on top of her.  At the end of the festival, I liked The Sizzler out of all the rides.

Tips for Barbie Dolls.

I have over 10 Barbie Dolls and all of them have different body shapes.  Some have tiny waists and big heads, small heads and a thick body, and small heads with long legs.  The thing that bothered me the most was the clothes I would buy at the store would only fit a typical Barbie Doll, so I decided to make my own!

The Fabric Trick:  Taking a scrap piece of fabric, tie it around your Barbie’s chest.  It will look like a crop top with a bow tied on the back.  If you get a bigger piece of fabric it makes a cute Shirt.  The fabric Trick works for all body designs and it takes no glue, tape, staples or safety pins.  Copy and Paste this:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlUE8UVIchs

How to fix greasy Barbie hair:  If Barbie hair is greasy when you take it out of the package, use shampoo and rub it all through the doll’s hair, rinse all of the shampoo out, then let Barbie dry in the shower over night.  This has worked for me every time my Barbie Dolls have had sticky hair.  It seems too simple to be true, but it works!

Barbie accessories:  Gather cardboard from any box and cut out a small rectangle.  Take a tiny piece of tape and put it on the cut out of cardboard, leaving a small opening for the Doll’s hand.  Now you can be creative and draw (with a pen) anything you want on the small, Barbie phone.  It’s easy to make books with cardboard too!  Cut out a medium-sized rectangle, then bend it in half.  Cut out the same sized rectangle out of paper and hot glue them together.  With a pen or pencil, create lines of different sizes to make it look like words.  You can also write a title for the book if you want.

Barbie Furniture: You need hot glue for making a small couch.  Pick two rocks that are a flat on one side, then hot glue them in the couch shape you desire with the flat sized facing upwards.  You can use hot glue to make fun shapes on the couch, if you decide to do this you might want to paint the hot glue when it has cooled down.  Hot glue fabric on the couch and it’s done.  This works the same for chairs.  You might want to look at other blogs or videos on how to make other furniture such as tables, desks and shelves.

Barbie Tattoos and What to be Careful of:  Using a permanent marker, you can draw tattoos on your Barbie.  Keep in mind, permanent marker will not come off!   I recommend having an idea of what you’re going to tattoo on your Barbie before you even take the cap off the marker.  If you do tattoo a Barbie don’t let a tattooed Barbie rub up on other Barbie Dolls or the permanent marker will create lines on the other Barbie’s plastic skin.

I hope you found these tips helpful and easy!

My surprisingly fun sleepover.

My sister and I have two friends, Autumn and Hunter.  Thea (my sister)  is a tom boy so, she would play with Hunter while I would play with my friend, Autumn.  On the 20th, Hunter was coming over, Autumn had pink eye, so she couldn’t come to the sleepover.

I  was a little sad.  Autumn is one of my best friends and I was looking forward to seeing her.  When Hunter arrived, we all played video games for almost two hours and then we started getting bored and played with Legos for a few minutes.  Thea, Hunter and I all like video games, so that was the majority of the sleepover.  After Legos, Hunter and Thea were going to ride bikes and scooters outside, I wanted to join in and they let me.  I was going to ride my small, pink scooter,  Thea was going to ride her bike and Hunter was going to ride Thea’s new, giant, red scooter.  We started riding, but the scooter was too big for Hunter and Thea was going to ride it while Hunter would ride Thea’s bike.  It all was working out until I fell on my scooter,  I scratched half the side of my leg and my heel was bleeding pretty bad.  I went inside, had some water and I went back out, I felt sore, but I was having so much fun I didn’t care!

When I thought Autumn was coming, we planned to bake cookies together, but since she couldn’t make it, I decided to make them alone for everyone that came.  I wanted to make white chocolate and cranberry cookies, but Hunter didn’t like cranberries, so I started to make chocolate chip cookies instead.  I took some butter that I set out for the cookies to get soft, but it wasn’t soft enough.  I wasn’t being patient and I started making the cookies.  My mom eventually had to come in the kitchen to help with the cookie dough.  Lots of hard work later, the cookies were done and they tasted great!

When most of the cookies were eaten, we all went into my room and made a huge fort!  The fort was big enough for all three of us to sleep in.  I fell asleep and when I woke up, Thea was watching a funny movie.  I sat next to Thea and we both watched the rest of the movie and then we slept in the fort.  I thought I wasn’t going to have a good time, but I had a great time.

Things I did with my brother (Improved)

Two weeks ago, my mom suggested that my sister and I should help clean up the house and get our homework done.  My sister and I weren’t very ecstatic about it.  Then my mom said she had a surprise for us, but didn’t give us any hints.  That gave my sister and I a great deal of motivation and my mom sent us to our room!  I had no idea my brother was coming to visit, I was oblivious!  When we were done with our homework, my mom said “Are you ready?”  while holding the front door knob.  Thea (My sister) and I were bursting with anticipation to see the surprise on the other side of the door.  It opened to a tall guy, bags in hand, smiling brightly and Thea and I yelled “Andrew!” (Our brothers name).  Thea started sprinting like an Olympic runner and two seconds later I started running and I jumped into his arms.  It had been a long time since I saw my brother because he lives 3,064 miles away in Seattle.  We did lots of things with Andrew some of the awesome visits are listed below:
Manatee Viewing:  We went to a manatee viewing spot close to an energy factory, the manatees live in warm water, so during the winter they swim over to the TECO Energy plant for warmth.  At the entrance we could see at least 5 manatees (Plastic manatees) near the snow cone stand.  The snow cone stand had big and small snow cones with a variety of tasty looking flavors, the bright colors of the cones caught my attention.  I wanted a snow cone, but I never ended up buying myself one because I wanted to save my money.  On a dock we could see over twenty manatees (living manatees) swimming and eating, then I noticed one manatee had a tag on him and another was eating algae that was on it!  It was extremely cute, they looked like best friends!
Fort De Soto Beach:  We went to Fort De Soto beach with our brother and also our aunt and uncle who were visiting for a couple of days.  I leapt into the water but, the water was freezing!  I felt I was going to catch a cold, but Andrew didn’t mind the cold water.  We went on the pier that was close by and we saw multiple people catching fish, one guy had a whole cooler full of them!
Downtown:  We went to downtown Saint Petersburg with my grandpa, Andrew and mom.  We walked around for a while, passing through a huge park with a lake in the middle.  The park had a massive fountain in the center of the lake.  Around that time I had to go to the bathroom.  There were no spots close by that we could see, so Andrew had to look up some restrooms nearby on his phone.  We found ourselves going to a sushi restaurant.  I went to the restroom and we ending up eating two large, delicious boats full of maki.   It was so scrumptious and so much fun!
Aquarium at Tarpon Springs:  We went to Tarpon Springs and ate lots of Greek food and went to an aquarium.  The aquarium had snakes (oddly), crabs, fish, sharks, manta rays and stingrays.  We saw two informing presentations about the snakes and the sharks, then we went to the shark feeding area where Thea and I could feed shrimp to the nurse sharks.  In the same room we also fed manta rays and stingrays, I liked the manta rays more than the stingrays because I think the manta rays look more friendly.  There was a rather large playground called Puffy’s Playground.  Puffy’s Playground had bright and bold colors painted on the walls.  There was a big, blue bouncy house that Thea and I were too big to go in.  A ball pit that had a basketball hoop inside.  The first time we saw the playground, the plastic balls were purple, blue, and  greenish-yellow, but this time they were different, there was purple, blue, pink and white!   There were tunnels that my sister and I played make-believe mice in.
My favorite part about my brother’s visit was the aquarium, because I loved feeding the animals and playing at Puffy’s Playground.  I enjoyed the playground and aquarium because I got to enjoy it all with my family!

Things I did with my brother.

Last week, my mom suggested that my sister and I should help clean up the house and get our homework done.  My sister and I weren’t very happy about it.  Then my mom said she had a surprise for us, but didn’t give us any hints.  That gave my sister and I lots of motivation and my mom sent us to our room.  I had no idea my brother was coming to visit, I was oblivious!  When we were done with our homework, my mom said “Are you ready?”  while holding the front door knob.  Thea (My sister) and I were bursting with anticipation!  It opened to a tall guy, bags in hand, smiling brightly and Thea and I yelled “Andrew” (Our brothers name).  Thea started sprinting like an Olympic runner and two seconds later I started running and I jumped into his arms, it was a long time since I had seen my brother since he lives 3,064 miles away in Seattle.

Manatee Viewing:  We went to a manatee viewing spot close to an energy factory, the manatees live in warm water, so during the winter, they swim over to the TECO Energy plant for warmth.  At the entrance you can see at least 5 manatees (Plastic manatees) near the snow cone stand.  The snow cone stand had big and small snow cones with lots of flavors and colors, which caught my attention.  I wanted a snow cone, but I never ended up buying myself one because I wanted to save my money.  On a dock we could see over twenty manatees swimming and eating, then I noticed one manatee had a tag on him and another was eating algae that was on it!  It was extremely cute!

Fort De Soto Beach:  We went to Fort De Soto beach with our brother and aunt and uncle who were visiting for a couple of days.  I ran to the water and hopped in it, but the water was freezing and I felt I was going to get frost bite!  We went on the pier that was close by, we saw multiple people catching fish and one guy had a whole cooler full of fish!

Fort De Soto fort:  Next to Fort De Soto beach, there is a historic fort that has old buildings, including little dungeons with bars for windows, just like a prison!  I would go in the “mini prison” and shake the bars.  We walked around, but I didn’t really enjoy reading in the history room, because I’m not a fan of reading.  Andrew carried me most of the way and I thanked him afterwards.

Downtown:  We went to downtown Saint Petersburg with my grandpa and Andrew.  We walked around for a while, passing through a huge park with a lake in the middle.  Around that time I had to go to the bathroom.  There were no spots close by that we could see, so Andrew had to look up some restrooms nearby on his phone and we had to go to a sushi restaurant. We ending up eating two large boats including 15 varieties of maki.   It was so scrumptious and so much fun!

Aquarium at Tarpon Springs:  We went to Tarpon Springs and ate lots of Greek food and went to an aquarium.  The aquarium had snakes (oddly), crabs, fish, sharks, manta rays and stingrays.  We saw two presentations about the snakes and the sharks, then we went to the shark feeding area where Thea and I could feed nurse sharks shrimp.  In the same room we also fed manta rays and stingrays, I liked the manta rays more than the stingrays because I think the manta rays look more friendly.  There was a playground called Puffy’s Playground where Thea and I played make-believe mice.

My favorite part about my brother’s visit was the aquarium, because I loved feeding the animals and playing at Puffy’s Playground.

A Dream.

Once upon a time there was a lovely little girl named Mini Smith.  She was eight years old and already a decent baker.  She knew how to make biscuits off the top of her head!  She practiced making croissants all day on the weekends and didn’t mind cleaning up her messes after baking.  Her parents supported her, but her brother and classmates didn’t.  They would say awful things like “You’ll never make it” and “Your baking tastes like garbage!”.  She kept telling herself that she was a great baker and continued trying!  Years later and now she was fifteen and could make more pastries than before, she was working part-time at a local bakery.  People starting asking Mini to bake then treats for parties and gatherings, Mini was definitely making a name for herself.  Mini was earning her own money to buy her own groceries and her family took notes from her baking when they would visit from out-of-town.  When Mini turned twenty she could finally make croissants and was working her way up to her dream.  One day Mini got an interview with an extremely popular bakery, she did great during the interview and became the top baker in the bakery.  She took it knowing it would be hard work and long hours.    She loved it there and lived happily ever after.  The End.

5 Animal Myths That are Not True

1. Ostriches don’t actually bury their head in the ground when a predator is coming.    If an ostrich buried its head in the ground, it would suffocate and die, causing the predator to get a free meal.  It’s an illusion that ostriches do this, they are really looking for a snack!

2. Opossums can hang by their tails, but only during their youth because a baby opossum (or a Joey) is lighter, but can only hold on for a few seconds.  Adult opossums are heavier and can not hang on their tails.

3. Touching a frog or a toad will not give people warts, it is believed the bumps on toads and frogs are transmittable warts and touching them will give you warts.  Warts are caused by not washing hands after using a public place or touching a wart on someone else.

4.  Mother birds will not abandon their own chicks if they smell like humans, if you find a baby bird on the ground you might want to give it back to its mom, this was most likely a way of people trying to keep young kids from handling baby birds.  Only Raptors (Big hunting birds) will smell the scent of humans on their chicks and abandon them.

5. Penguins do not fall backwards when they see a plane going by, it started with a British pilot flying around south America, looked down and saw penguins falling over in a domino effect.  It was an optical illusion, just like the ostrich myth, the penguins were getting ready to dive.  In reality, penguins have very good balance, but this is no laughing matter because if a plane flies too low it will make the penguins frightened and they will leave their nest.
