Alec: Boys, here we are in Granite Falls!
Colin: Since Daniel and Joseph don’t have school today because of a teacher work day, we thought it would be nice to have them spend their three day weekend with us here in Granite Falls.
Daniel: I’ve always wanted to check out Granite Falls.
Joseph: Same here.
A few minutes later
Joseph: Let’s play some horseshoes! I’ll go first.
*throws horseshoe and lands near stake*
Joseph: All right! I got my horseshoe near the stake!
Alec: My turn! Let me how far close I can get to Joseph’s horseshoe.
Alec: Not bad. My horseshoe came near Joseph’s horseshoe.
Colin: My turn! Hope I get a nice one!
*horseshoe lands out of court*
Colin: Whoops! Looks like I get no points.
Several rounds later
Joseph: This is the final round. Hope I get it!
*throws horseshoe and lands out of court*
Joseph: Really? Gosh.
Colin: Well, I didn’t keep score because we’re playing just for fun!
Alec: Having fun is what matters!
Colin: Now I’ll go out and take a hike around the area. I’ll be right back!
Alec: Okay! I’ll just look around here.
Joseph: Daniel and I will be fishing!
Colin: Wow, a bush with these little berries. I’ll attempt to taste it and identify it.
Colin: Hmmmmm. I have no idea. Let me get my book of plants and figure it out from there.
*gets book and looks up berry*
Colin: Aha! Looks like I got elderberries. Nice.
Alec: All right! I got a Surfer Leaf Frog from this log!
Colin: According to my plants guide, these are also elderberries.
Joseph: Hoepfully we can catch some new fish! I’m getting tried of catching just perches, minnows, and bass.
Daniel: I heard there are some special fish that can be only caught here.
Daniel: Yeah. They’re the Walleyes, Yellow Perches, Red Crawdads, Blue Crawdads, and Mountain Lionfish.
Joseph: Nice! We’re here for 3 days. Let’s make it a goal and see if can catch all of these fish before our vacation ends.
Daniel: Sounds like a neat plan!
A few minutes later
Joseph: Neat! I got a Walleye!
Daniel: Nice. man!
Joseph: Wow, a trout!
Daniel: Let’s save our catches because we’re going to have roasted fish for lunch!
Alec: This looks like the best place to fish, right, Colin?
Colin: I agree with you, my friend! Man, there’s lot of fish in the water!
Alec: Oh yeah! I got a Yellow Perch!
Colin: Nice! It’s a pretty fish!
Daniel: Got myself a bass and it’s big!
Colin: Okay, boys, I’ve started a fire! Time to roast some fish for lunch!
Alec: Mmm!! So tender and fresh! It’s best to eat fish fresh from the fishing spots!
Daniel: You’re right, bro! Mmmmm. Not only it smells so good, it also tastes delicious!
Colin: The air is so fresh and crispy! I say after lunch, we do more exploring!
Joseph: Yeah! I can’t wait to find some insects, fish more, and collect gems and fossils!
Daniel: OMG, these annoying mosquitoes!!
Colin: Let me attempt to identify this plant without the assistance of my plants guide.
*successfully identifies plant*
Colin: Oh brother! This is noxious elderberry! I should’ve thought twice before I put that in my mouth!
Colin: Let’s see if I can get a gem from this.
*discovers that he got a treasure map*
Colin: Awesome! I got a treasure map! Hopefully I can get some rare treasures!
Colin: Wow, these flowers are pretty! Let me pick some.
Colin: It looks like these are chamomiles.
Later that night
Alec: I’ll add some fuel to this fireplace because Colin has a nice story to tell us!
Colin: Yup! I have an exciting story to share with you all!
Colin: Okay, tonight’s story will be about an enchanted snake!
Daniel: Yay! A snake story!
After the story
Colin: That’s the end. What do you think?
Joseph: Your story was out of this world!
Daniel: Awesome story, man!
Alec: You’re an amazing storyteller, Colin!
Alec: It’s kind of chilly here.
Joseph: I’ll add more fuel to the fire.
*Fire gets bigger*
Daniel: Good! Let’s hang out here for a bit.
Colin: Let’s see what constellations are in the sky tonight.
Daniel: Look over there! Is that Ursa Major?
Alec: It looks a giant bear, so yes it’s Ursa Major.
Joseph: I see the Big Dipper!
Colin: It’s so nice to be out here stargazing! It gets us so inspired.
