First I am starting with a book one of my friends sent me. It is called, Awake and Dreaming. It’s by Kit Pearson. Is it good? OHHH YEAH! We went to an AMAZING Amusement Park yesterday and was it good? OHHH YEAH! At the Amusement Park there was a wooden roller coaster from 1922! And was it good? I have know idea, ask Onlyboy. He was the only one who was brave enough! But let me just say, OHHH YEAH!
HI GUYS! Venice here! In Hungary they use Hufs!!! (200 Hufs for $1 Canadian) Anyway, at the Amusement Park you use Tokens, (200 Hufs for 1 token). Paris, Lastborn, Onlyboy And I, Venice, went in a hamster ball in a small pool full of water!!! 2 tokens for one turn in the ball, the guy that owns it blows it up with a leaf blower! Then he zips it up and pushes you into the water! And was it good? OHHH YEAH!
There was also a Carousel! One from 1906!!! Everyone went on it except Fahbio, he says “It makes me dizzy” whatever that means… We went on it three times! These are the names of the horses that we made up! There was a white one with pink and blue decorations all over it, I called her Avaline, I found another white one (I like white horses most) that I also rode and her name is Sage. Then I rode a brown one, Timothy!
Paris rode a brown horse called Arion say u-rion (if you know Greek myths then you will know the name) Then she rode a white one and she called it Tempest. Lastborn rode on one horse and it was a brown one, named Fairy, she says she called her that because the horse is so high up for her it’s like she’s flying! Onlyboy rode one horse too – the name’s Bond, James Bond. And finally Budapest, by S.W.M.B.O. Of course!
THEN, Paris, Lastborn and I went on a fairytale ride where you hop into a boat and you go in a circle with scenes of different Fairytales along the way… Paris and I thought it was going to be all cheery like with some fairy gardens on the ground and bright and beautiful! But nope! You are in a tunnel all the way with only a few lights now and then… Yes it was pleasant but you go so slow it’s slower then how you walk! And sometimes it was pitch black I couldn’t see anything! PLUS the roller coaster was right above us so at some points it was SO loud we could not here each other! But all the same it was nice! At the Amusement Park there is also a Zoo!
In that Zoo there are Flamingoes! Paris and I found out the their knee’s bend back- words, not frontwords like ours!
There was also a nice park there! With a hamster wheel!!! Whats up with all the hamster things though? Like am I missing a festival or something? Anyway there was also a post not a blog post, but a post post! With 4 swings so we had fun with that…
Then there was a running barrel thing too! And that is why this blog post is so special! Because there is a video of me and Onlyboy on it!
So I have to end this blog post now but I REALLY don’t want to but ok,
I hope you guys will read Awake and Dreaming!
