This week is going to be so much fun I thought to myself. Weeks had passed since my parents had said we would go to the beach and then finally today was the day. I felt so excited and thrilled for this upcoming event. Everyone was getting ready, going crazy, running up the stairs, taking stuff to the car, getting drinks, and using the upstairs and downstairs bathrooms before we left. Also, to get our toothbrushes, towels, lotion, shampoo, and toothpaste.
The National Championship Game will be something I will never forget. Being able to walk into Magic or Animal Kingdom will never get old. Waiting to go on a huge waterslide is one of the best and worst feelings at the same time. There’s something about laying on the beach or in the ocean that is just so relaxing, especially when you can hear the waves crash up against the shore. I can’t wait until my next trip to Florida so I can make even more
“Wake up,” My mom whispered. It was 6AM in the morning, and my family of four--my brother, my mom, my dad, and I--were packed up to take a roadtrip to Georgia, Alabama. Two of my families live in the area where we were going, and one of them was the family we were staying two nights with. The other family was my Uncle who planned everything, and everyone except my Aunt in that family was the one who didn’t know most of the family was coming to surprise her. When we arrived in Georgia, we slept overnight, then the next day, we had that family visit.
We spent hours packing to get ready to depart to go to our beachside residence. We would go to all these delicious food chains. Spend almost all of our days at the beach, and walk the boardwalk in the afternoons. The trip took about 8 hours from where we live, all the way to South Carolina. The year was 2012 and my family were on our way to Myrtle Beach.
The view was breathtaking, there was a giant waterfall we used to jump from. We would all play in the water together, there was no such thing as girls play in one side and boys in the other everything was one and the same. After an entire day at the river, just when you thought everyone was worn-out and ready for a long nap, we were all rushing to get home to play baseball. Girls and boys from the neighborhood would gather together, in a deserted field at five in the afternoon to play baseball all night long. This was the life I lived in Cuba full of joy and freedom.
Standing on the deck, legs still trembling, I looked over at my parents who stood near by with a very proud smile on their face for what I had just done. I realized then too that I was very proud of myself. I had just faced one of my biggest fears! Just moments ago I was on the bottom of the ocean, surrounded by fish, and with only the trust in a helmet over my head keeping me alive. Then it was all over and I could breathe again on land like a normal human being.
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.
As the night slowly slowed down, we watched a light parade, the Magic Kingdom’s fireworks and got to see the TIpp Marching Band go through Magic Kingdom. After all of the night excitement, we got to see Tinkerbell fly off of Cinderella’s castle. After the day was over, we rode the people mover back to the car. When we finally made it out of the park, we realized that we had been there for 17 hours. On the way back to our condo we talked about what our favorite thing was.
That night when I got home, my parents and I made some plans for the summer. “I want to go to an indoor pool” I said so bad that I actually couldn 't stop saying it. Since I was super eager my parents set the date to go the following day. Mom explained, "If you want to go you would have to do all the packing so I can make food right now so we can leave early in the morning.”I ran up the stairs as quick as lightning and started to pack more than needed. By the time I finished, it was ten at night.
