fun in veniee

Venice was built on Piles or large wooden poles harvested from Croatia. These piles have been petrified under the water due to lack of oxygen and the mineral rich content of the water.

This is just one of many beautiful building in Venice. Isn't the architecture awesome?

This is my first day in Venice. It is very beautiful here in the city. The blue skies are towering above the buildings. and the food is awesome.

the plane ride not to home...

I have got to be honest with you , I don't really know where I am , our plane pilot became to busy
planning for his party at his private beach house in Hawaii.I'm guessing the plane fell right around Mexico city because I see a sign that says " WELCOME TO MEXICO CITY " in Spanish. I'm going to start walking down the road , hitch hiking. Can some one please come get me! I'm all alone
because Eleanore decided to stay one extra day in New Zeland. Once again, HELP!

NICK Name Island

Welcome to NICK Name Island! There is a pretty big mountain range on my island, and in some of the mountains there are caves that have stalagtites and stalagmites. In my favorite cave (below) there are crystal formations. I named this cave Crystal Gleam (nickname: C.G.). Sometimes the rocks in C.G. seem to glow in the light, and it's beautiful!

Do I have any pets? Yes, I do! I have an especially unusual pet. He is a MONSTER! ...named Fluffy (nickname: Fluffs). He is pink and purple and very nice...only to whom I introduce to him and he becomes friends with. I built this castle (below) for Fluffs, and he calls it "Fuffy Caffle". His nickname for it is "Fuffy Home". Fluffs lets my friends and me ride on his back sometimes. He is very fun to hug since he is so very very fluffy.

Oh yes, yes, yes! I have to tell you about the lake, which has tons and tons of fish. Which means really good fishing. So I fish there sometimes and every single time I catch at least one fish. But there is one fish that you rarely would ever see...

...the blobfish! (nickname: Blobby)

My rainforest is a fun place to play. I named it Palm Tree Forest (nickname: Palmy), where I always pick coconuts for their "milk". And there is a stream in this magical place. I usually have a picnic and eat pineapples, mangoes, bananas and pizza (I'll explain why it's pizza later).

Now for the amenities on my island. There is a long running path that leads to a trampoline (which is unusually bouncy) and then into a foam pit. I play on this and learn new tricks.

Back to the pizza. I have a pizza restaurant named Peetsy Pizza. (nickname: Food Place).

I invite all of you bloggers to come visit me and Fluffy on NICK Name Island.

This is my island. When it rains, it rains lemon drops. I put buckets out to catch them (I love lemon drops).

My island is a volcano. It started in the center of the earth where the rock is so hot it is liquid. It came through a crack in the bottom of the ocean and burped out for millions of years.  It burped and burped until it reached the surface of the ocean. It kept burping until it erupted into my island. At the center of my island is a crater, called Squid Jellyfish Crater. It collects rain.

The crater has an island in it, which has a crater at the center of it, which has an island, which has a crater in it. See it?

Here are some places you might want to visit on my island:

In the northeast, there is Magenta Pineapple Island. You can get magenta colored pineapples there.

In the southeast is my house, which is super small on the outside but when you walk in it's a MANSION. I couldn't take up the whole island with my house so I asked a very NON-famous architect named "Mississippi Granger" (pseudonym) whose real name is John Hancock to build my house.

By pineapple island there are animals that are whales/butterflies. They can swim under water and fly above land.

In the northwest corner of my island there is a graveyard, in which is buried the whale butterflies and the giraffe bumblebees.  The other animals do not die because they drink from the purple lemonade spring next to the graveyard.

On the central southern coastline there is a peninsula. I like to squish putty in my feet on that peninsula.

See you there!

Tick Tack Toe Land

Hello!!! Sorry, but when I get home, you all might want to run into your houses and lock all the doors because I just might eat you! I really like cannibals. You see, ever since I went to Papua New Guinea, I have been ever so interested in them!

Here on Tick Tack Toe Land, I convinced some to come and live on my island with me.

Okay, enough with them and on to my island.

My island, Tick Tack Toe Land, is not necessarily beautiful or perfect or a #1 travel destination, but a raw, dangerous place in the middle if the Indian Ocean. But that is why I like it.

There are killer blue birds that circle above you every day, waiting to attack but they never do; there is a sound house on the very end of the peninsula that makes really scary noises to keep people away; there are snakes, bats, big insects, quicksand, and dead rats all over the western side of the island.

But, like all places there are some good things too.  

 TTTL has the longest river in the world, 4,146 miles (one mile longer than the Nile). The river is called, Wonder Stream, but everybody calls it Bay to Bay because it comes in on south east side of the island and goes out the north side, through the delta. 

The whole Island is a meadow (except for one part which is a mountain range that has the tallest mountain in the world that has just been discovered by me), and there is only one type of flower that grows here. It is an orange and pink poppy. It is wonderful to look at. 

These are the orange and pink poppies.
In the center of the island, there is a soda fountain. But it is actually is a fountain of soda!
 It is soooooooooo cool! And, it has the best flavors! My favorite is strawberry. Mmmmmm. I should go get some right now before the line forms.

See you all soooooo soon! LZ

a land... without a name

I'm sorry that I couldn't name my world, I just couldn't decide on one. Anyways, you probably
don't even care about the name, in fact, you're only reading this to find out what my world looks
like. You couldn't care less about the name. However, I do care about the name. And you should to! But you know what, if you don't care about some thing that I do care about, then I'm not going to care about something that you care about. Now lets not forget why you're reading this. ( if you are having trouble figuring out what I'm talking about read words 27-37 ) I'm not going to describe it to you the way that the other children did, I'm only going to tell you what you need to know about: transportation. There are only 7 ways to get around in my world:bike riding
roller blades/skating, skiing, po-go sticking, walking, and dolphin riding. The thing that probably caught your eye most is dolphin riding, let me get one thing straight, this is not the kind of dolphin you're used to. These dolphins are professionals and know where they're going. In my world, D.S. stands for dolphin stop and there are several D.S.s across my territory. The dolphins are all on a track that goes around the land, the track is filled with water ( as you might have guessed.) The only way to get to my world is to wait for a cold snowy night, at midnight you
go outside in your pajamas into your street and this part is very hard, I'm not sure you're ready
for it : you do the chicken dance. ( it helps to cluck) after about ten minuets of chicken dancing
( or at least enough time for me to see it ha ha) you will look at your street sign and discover that
it reads D.S. and right next to it will be a dolphin named Stanly. ( don't worry he doesn't bite, most of the time anyways)
hope to see you in a land... without a name soon!

Logie Land

When I first arrived in Logie Land I thought I was in a dream. I was floating in the
pitch dark with only the stars and the moon to light up the night sky. When the sun rose the next morning I woke up, still floating in the sky, but on golden clouds above a HUGE island shaped like a bear. This was so hard to believe, I pinched myself to see if I was truly awake, OUCH! Slowly, I started sinking out of the sky until I landed at the bottom of a ginormous mountain. Next to me was a rock sculpture about ten feet tall in the shape of the infinity symbol. On one side of the sculpture was a raging waterfall which sprayed me with mist, and on the other side, was a gigantic tree growing in the shape of broccoli.

I started looking around and suddenly a gondola appeared so I jumped aboard. Once I got in I realized I didn't have my skis and I was praying for a miracle in the form of fat pow skis. As the door of the gondola opened, a brand new pair of Jaguar Shark Moment skis appeared. This was my lucky day! Nothing but POW, POW and more POW! I looked behind me and I couldn't see my tracks,then I looked at my feet and the snow was magically filling them in. While I was looking at my feet I went off a HUGE cliff, who knows how big, but surprisingly I stuck it. All of a sudden there was a sweet kicker built on a blind roll over, I did the floatyiest superman front flip I have ever done!

After skiing I went down to the longest river in the world it is 590,450,765 miles long. I took off my ski clothes and my long johns magically turned into waders. Weird! I saw a golden fly rod in the middle of the river!!! I waded into the water and grabbed the golden rod. Let the fishing begin! The next thing I knew I had a huge fish on my line, I tried reeling him in but I couldn't. All of the sudden I was being pulled down the river by some sort of crazy, huge fish!? After wake boarding on my butt for quite a while, I got washed up on a beach.

I got up, dusted off, and then realized I was in my bathing suit. As I looked around I saw a water fountain, but it wasn't water coming out, it was something dark purple and red. What a weird place this is! I went over and tasted it, my favorite POMEGRANATE JUICE!!! I got a cup that was sitting on the side of the fountain and chugged so much that I started turning purple! I sat down on the beach watching the waves and wait for my coloring to come back.

While sitting of the beach I kept hearing some rustling in the bushes. I saw a little dwarf run in front of me, then he grabbed me and threw me off the Head Peninsula and into Fire Cove! I got super mad at him I chased him right into the Delight Forest. Fresh, delicious fruit was everywhere! Wait, I'm trying to catch a dwarf, not eat fruit! I finally caught and tackled that pesky little dwarf and as I was getting ready to pelt him with fruit I saw that it was Cody! I asked him how he got here and he told me about floating in the night sky and riding on golden clouds in a dream world. It was starting to get dark so we finished eating our delightful fruit and headed back toward the beach. Just as I was dosing off, I felt like I was being lifted and into the clouds again. Good night, sweet dreams!

P.S. I think I might want to stay here for awhile.


When I first got to Codyland, I landed my helicopter in Cody City. Cody City sits in the southern portion of Codyland, just north of Strawberry Peninsula and every building is as high as the Empire State Building. It was dark out and you could hear the dogirds (aka dog-birds) yawn from 590,678,510,660 miles away. I could feel the light, wonderful breeze. The next day when the Ooga (sun) came out, it got so hot (500*F) that I had to head to Snow Volcano to cool off and ski. The greatest part of Snow Volcano is that every time you jump a cliff and make a bomb hole, the pow immediately fills in your hole. All tracks are first tracks!

After my legs got too tired to ski any longer I headed to Paintball Land. Thing One and Thing Two, my head scientists in Paintball Land, make robots that are programmed to shoot paint balls at me. The robots roll across the land like rolly-pollys and make my target practice challenging. Unfortunately today I lost the battle when one of my robots caught me and threw me all the way to Air Bag Valley, just east of Mt. Everest. I hit the suction shuttle button which vacuumed me to the top of Mt. Everest. With my skis I dropped in from the highest points and launched a triple cork 1620* onto one of the airbags in the Valley.

I got so hungry I had to take a break and headed for Spaghetti Tree Peninsula, my very favorite place to dine. Yuuummmmm! My tummy was too full to do anymore bouncing so I went to Zero Gravity Land to take a nap while floating amongst the stars. Goodnight, sleep tight.

I just couldn't get enough of Codyland, so the next morning I got up and went to Dogird Land. My favorite Dogird in all the land is Duke. Duke and I spent all day flying around WaWa Mountain. Waterfalls, lagoons and geysers are everywhere! Whenever my Mom visits she always loves Wawa Mountains the best. Dogird worked so hard carrying me around all day I treated him to Snow Cone Land before heading home.

I may never leave, so I apologize if I miss a few of my classes and blog posts. I hope you understand.
