I was in complete shock from when I was told I could chose a destination until the flight and hotels were paid for. I was still in shock when we were at the Portland airport about to board the plane. I remember being so tired because it was quite early but also thrilled at the same time. I remember walking down the jet-way just looking at Rylie; neither of us could stop smiling. I had to do everything to hold back from screaming in excitement.
I was the first one to get up, and took a shower, and put my black and white striped shirt, with my black jeans, and my Timberland’s. Later, my family got ready to go down stairs, and we ate breakfast; the food looked so good that I couldn’t decide between them, however, I decided and ordered the Tomato Olive Quiche’ and it tasted wonderful. After everybody was done eating, my mother told all of us why we were in California; we were there to skydive. My heart dropped, and adrenaline circulated through my veins when I heard the word “skydive”; I was silent the whole time that she was talking about it. I ask her when we are going to sky dive, and she said after we were done eating, which made my heart pound faster and my face turn red.
This summer, my church took a missions trip to Puerto Penasco. It wasn 't the easiest trip to plan, seeing we only had two months to plan for it, and pay for it. Yes, this trip was spontaneous, and we worked very hard to get the money for it. It was a hot day when I and the rest of the missions team got out of the airplane in Phoenix, Arizona.
The Trip My family and I went on a trip to the Bahamas. We flew there and the ride was horrible. I had to sit by some random person's baby. The child wouldn't stop crying.
This story takes place last summer in the month of July, about one week. My family and I went on a trip out west. Our final destination was in South Dakota. We left on a monday morning and I remember my mom was trying to get me up and they almost left without me. Everyone packed their bags in the car but when I was about to put mine in the car I was informed that there was no more room and it had to get tied to the roof.
We can’t wait to go so we pack our bags right away. After a long week of waiting we finally get in the car and drive to Florida. It was a long trip in the car but we finally
It was 3:30 in the morning when our plane finally landed in Santo Domingo and I had just witnessed the scariest plane flight of my life. Along with the scariest flight in my life it had been the longest day in my life. I had been up for 22 hours straight, waiting and riding on plane flights that constantly got delayed or pushed back along with excruciating long car rides. Our mission team stayed the night at some nice hotel and in the morning we would take off for San Juan De La Maguana where we would stay the rest of the week. That morning we woke up extremely early and trudged into the elevators down to the lobby.
I kept the fish and had it for dinner the following
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.
After the dolphin show was over, we were over with this trip to the Shedd Aquarium. We managed to get out of there, it was really busy. The family decided to go back to hotel and get some rest, since we were all exhausted. We took the car and drove to the hotel, All of us climbed into the elevator and waited until we got on our floor.
My mother, both of my sisters, and I all boarded on one airplane headed to Miami, where we would get on another flight to take us to Jamaica. My father had a different flight a few hours after ours that would take him straight to Jamaica. Both of the flights were pretty uneventful, and I slept for a large portion of the time. Eventually we were all together in the Jamaican airport, and were finally going to be able to relax.
Finally we walk back to the car exhausted we start the task of getting the car to 44 Mckinley St and we arrive four hours later covered in sweat and dehydrated. She invites us in and gives us beds and we pass out. The next morning I woke up at twelve and she had made lunch for us and left a note, “Dear friends, Please try and be at work at
One day after I came home from soccer practice my mom was talking to her boss on the phone. I was wondering what it was about because my mom was saying “yes” underneath her breath so her boss couldn’t hear it. And when she got off the phone she said “boys we are going to the bahamas because I just won 8,000 dollars!” We were all so happy because we had never been in a different country before. It really paid off after all the hardwork my mom put in this to win this prize.
We arrived at SeaWorld fairly early and the day was postcard-perfect with bulbous clouds drifting hazily above us. From the weather that morning, we inferred that the day would not be as excruciating as both Universal Studios and Disneyland. We bought our tickets and proceeded to the Shamu Stadium. Five minutes before show time, gloomy clouds began to appear and I was praying that the day would not end up like the day before. After the show, my cousin and my mom wanted to leave because the pitch black and ominous clouds were rolling in quickly, promising heavy rains and another bad day at an amusement park.
