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. Since sadly her grandpa would not be able to do many things with her because of his defibrillator. The day I got back from my trip, we went and got a lot of snacks from Walmart. From getting Kitchen Cooked chips, to munchies, to starbursts, jolly ranchers,propel and so much more. We bought enough food to feed ten people! I mean just getting the snacks for…show more content…
My appointment was earlier in the day and Macy’s was at 7:00 p.m. Her hair appointment took forever and I mean forever! She arrived at my house at 11:00 p.m. to pick me up since I was spending the night at her house before we left. I couldn 't believe that I was leaving in less than 24 hours to the Florida Keys specifically Key West. I remember that morning perfectly, Macy and I left to begin our road trip to Florida. We woke up at 5:00 a.m. ,and her grandparents were coming to pick us up at 5:30a.m. to begin our trip.

With the sun barely rising, we slept most of the car ride to Tunica, Mississippi. We woke up about an hour before we arrived to our destination. In that hour, we talked, ate Mc.

We got settled in with our room and getting our wristbands so we could swim. When we got up to our room on the second floor we were starving. For dinner that night we decided we would have the hotel’s buffet. They had many options from rice, catfish, sushi, and oh so many desserts. I 'm pretty sure Macy and I had about a sample of everything. After dinner her grandpa wanted to go to the casino while Macy , Grandma Kay and I went up to the room. That night was pretty lazy, but fun. We played card games like phase 10 and thirty-one. We stayed at that hotel three nights even though we were only supposed to stay for one. We stayed more since there was bad weather.
