Once we got their I asked my cousins if they wanted to go to lego land. They said yes so we we got in our car and went. When we got their we wanted to do the roller coaster so that 's what we did...Ahhhhhhh! I thought i was going to die once the ride stopped I wanted to go to the waterpark so that 's where we went. We went to the water park and the first ride we did was croolers twist, and splash out.
Once we got to Daytona Beach Airport, after our one and a half hour flight, we were all very giddy. I first notice the beachy of the tiny airport. It was so small you couldn’t even fit one plane in the terminal. My mom, Gunner, and I headed over to the baggage claim . While my dad went to go rent a Ford Fusion.
We walked outside of the resort to our car instead of taking the bus to the theme parks. As soon as I stepped outside the sun hit me like a hammer. It was a melting summer day in Disney world. We hopped in our rented car from the Orlando airport and followed the navigation to a different place that I have never heard of in my ten years of going to Disney World. We pulled up to the place and it said Disney Raceway.
I full of excitement (Absolute), got to packing as soon as I found out. We got there by driving I believe my parents realized their mistake at about hour two because of hearing "are we almost there" every couple of minutes. We left at night so that we could sleep most of the ride, but I couldn’t, I was so excited. When we finally got there, it was amazing and all I had seen was the hotel room. We stayed in the resort so that things were more continent.
My First Time in Disney World Every child wants to go to the happiest place on earth, Disney World, and for my fifth birthday, I was one of the lucky children who was granted their wish. I remember my time in Disney like it was yesterday, yet it was day two of my trip that stood out the most. We rode the monorail to the Magic Kingdom. I thought the monorail must be what a rollercoaster feels like, even though we were going as slow as a snail. I saw the castle as we pulled in.
I visit Dominican Republic once or twice a year, usually in the summer when I get longer vacations and so my siblings and parents. When I’m there it’s tons of fun but I don’t think I see myself ever living there again. I’m so used to the things that Mexico has offered me that I think living in Mexico was very good for my life and learning. I have family in Dominican Republic, that’s why I visit a lot, and I also left behind a couple of friends whom I’m still great friends with. Moving to Mexico was very hard for me, but now that I’d live there for so long, I don’t know if I’ll be able to live somewhere
But i had succeed and i was excited for all driving adventured to come with my friends. I felt nothing but excitement. Driving was everything i hoped and anticipated it to be, Except for one exception. One day in June i had just gotten out of school and my little brother had called me to pick him up from the opposite side of the school building, but with an unbearable line traffic i choose to take a lap around town to get to the other side, living in a small town i thought this would take less time then waiting in the line with no patience. I was at a red light very close to the school when i had a green arrow i proceeded on driving straight until very suddenly a car had pulled out directly into the street inches in front of me, with very little time to even get my foot on the brake, i had smashed directly into the driver side of the other car.
I was surrounded by my family during the heart of summer celebrating the feat that the Galaxie actually survived its voyage from Lansing to Detroit. While tragedy showed its presence six short months later, this memory of my uncle was only enhanced. Tragedy can make mundane days seem special; this was the case for me at the Dream Cruise. An excerpt from David Crosby’s song “Page 43” was quoted at Uncle Rob’s funeral, “You should grab ahold of it, And you should dive right into it, And you should have a sip of it, Else you’ll find, It’s passed you by.” These words hold deep resonance to me in my everyday life but they hold their greatest significance when I think back to the day of the Dream Cruise. Had I not climbed in the backseat of the Galaxie that average August evening, I would have never experienced one of the most magical events in my life.
In my mind’s eye, I can still picture driving from Seagraves, Texas to Orlando, Florida in a brand new Kia that we just got. I remember driving on the overpass above the Mississippi River and how far out of sight it went. We took two long, dreadful days to get to Orlando, but when we got there it was totally worth it. On the first day we got in Orlando my family and I rested from all the driving, but later that day we went to Orlando studios to walk around and look to see what rides and food they had for the next day when we come. Then we went to the hotel we were staying at and got into the pool with my grandma, grandpa, my cousin Micah, my two brothers, and my mom and dad.
I cannot recall any other time I experienced so much joy and satisfaction. It was on the warmth of a spring day in March, 2015. After finishing the spring semester at high school, the school gives students a one-week holiday to relax or to go somewhere. A beach trip in the spring is always a good idea for us who live near the sea, but this time I was on the bus with my classmates heading to the airport. The school had organized a Habitat Trip to the Philippines, where my classmates and I decided to go to build houses.
Going to Southern California, no one would think of packing an umbrella. Why would they? California is in the middle of a drought. When someone thinks of California, they think of baby blue skies and palm trees along the streets. But, of course, the weekend my family decided to visit Disneyland, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld is the weekend Southern California experienced what the local news called a “tropical depression.” After driving five hours from San Jose to Los Angeles in a compact Honda Civic, my mom, brother, me, and my cousin, Harneet, rushed to get to our first stop, Disneyland, as fast as possible.
Since my family lived in Havana we took a road that goes all along the north coast; a lovely trip of about two hours through he highest bridge in Cuba, the great historical city of Matanzas, and many smaller towns that my father was naming just before I could see them. I felt a great excitement when passing under the sign announcing the arrival although it was not the first time I was there. Varadero is amazing and unique in so many ways. The glistening white sands, the wonderful nature, and the tranquil waters are the ingredients for the stunning stage that extends all along the west side of the peninsula Hicacos, but even though it is as beautiful as someone can
By this time I haven’t been to Seaworld yet. I begged my mom to take me to Seaworld for my birthday. Seaworld was in San Diego which was two hours away. Anyway, my mom surprised me and took me to Seaworld for my birthday. I was the happiest 10-year-old ever.
K is for Key West The previous week, I was in Disney World in Florida. I was with my mom and step-dad waiting for the bus to take us to the park when I received a call. She had texted me before asking when I got back, and then asking if I could go with her. I couldn 't believe this was true, so I replied “CALL ME”. Her grandparents had asked her to go and that she could bring a friend along.
Born at Home Hospital in Lafayette, Indiana, around 10 P.M. Bailey was two weeks late. Bright brown eyes and a head full of black hair, that was what you noticed first about her. Years go by before she can remember anything, but the very first memory she has about her childhood is playing in the sandbox. Surrounded by corn/ beans fields the yard is closed in. The metal playset that included a swing set, a plastic slide and a bar.
