One warm Friday afternoon two summers ago, I was invited to go on a trip to Carowinds. I always wanted to go, so this was the perfect opportunity for me. To experience something, I have wanted since I was a little girl. I remember sitting on the sofa at my boyfriend’s house in their den watching tv and his mother came in talking to us about how she wants to plan a little trip to Carowinds. To get away for the weekend and have a good time and relax.
She called the people in the other cars, told them the news, and we all turned around to head back to our residence. Arrival back to the house was excruciating, due to the fact that we were all so hyped up to enter our favorite place. My mom, uncles, and aunt ran inside to frantically search for the $100 tickets. One of my uncles was the one who finally found them and we heard him yell from in the cars outside. We all ran in the house, teasing each other and my mom for forgetting them in the first place.
Watching the sunrise over the mountains. Having a picnic breakfast on the beach with the traditional Indonesian food. Then going scuba diving to experience the exquisite coral reefs and underwater marine life. Having the first underwater kiss. Coming back to relax for an hour or two.
It was a sunny day in the city of paramount in California , today is a special day because mother is coming home from a meeting that was hosted by the N.A.A.C.P. , hours went by and mother was at her home. I was dying of excitement, I think that the meeting was about stopping segregation in California. Mom was driving up the driveway, I saw the excitement in her eyes as she would get off the car. We all rushed inside and sat on the table and then mother spoke "I have really good news today we were told that our black kid and friends will be able to go to a white school '.
She usually takes a vacation to get away from the cold of the winter. I can recall that the car was a little stuffy with the defrost heater going. It also didn’t help that my mom, dad, brother, sister, and I were all packed in it. My siblings and I were singing the entire way there since we were so excited to see grandma again. An hour later we had made it to the airport.
So I ran to the white , wooden table and waited patiently. After eating the delicious breakfast , I got packed to go to disney world ! I felt so excited and happy that I actually got to drive to Disney World . I traveled with my Mom and my Sister , My Dad said ,“We are meeting them in tuscaloosa.” I replied , “ Ok dad ,I will pack now .” “Make sure you pack a bathing suit!” my Dad yelled I yelled back “ yes sir !” I felt thrilled to see all the
The game starts at one and it’s only eleven. The game usually does not start on time, it normally starts five to ten minutes late.” As we approached Tye’s house, I quickly ran to his door and rang his bell. He quickly came running outside. When he sat in the car, I asked him if it was his first Red Sox game and he said that it was not, but this would be his first game with people other than his family. When we got to where we were going to park the car, I told my mom to call her friend who was going to meet us at Fenway.
When we finally got to the zoo, we met my Aunt Karen at a special gate, and she swiped a card to let us in. We got to park in the employees’ parking lot. We didn’t have to walk very far. It was really hot that day, and it hadn’t rained in a long time. The sun was shining down on me, and I didn’t want to wear the hat my mom had brought so I left it in the car.
I’m playing Fortnite,” she whined. “Go on, call an Uber because I need the car to go to work. I will pick you up after work and bring you home. Granny’s osteoporosis is acting up and she needs help,” Little Red’s mother pleaded. She handed us the list of groceries.
I slept with my family, and everyone else was a little scattered around the house, except my Aunt’s family got the master’s bedroom to themselves. The next few days were extremely fun. I got to experience many exciting parts of Florida, such as the heat, which compared to Michigan is extremely hot, turtles and sparklers, campfires, Ice Cream, and more! Mostly, the trip consisted of card games, swimming, and good food, but many other small events, such as seeing a giant turtle, happened that made the trip one of the funnest trips I’ve ever had. One day, I wish I could go there again with all my family from my dad’s
RIIINNNGG!! The buzzing alarm sounded at 6:30, and I frantically jumped out of bed eager to begin my first missions trip. I scurried down the stairs with my bags and jumped into the car en route to Eureka High School to meet the team I would be experiencing my journey with for the next week. When I arrived at the school, a few friends of mine were waiting, but most of the people I had never seen in my life. My heart started to pound against my chest as I suddenly became nervous, second guessing myself on deciding to come on the trip in the first place.
"Click, Click", said the door knob as my mom locked the door on our way out. My mom was so close to having our little brother, and we were all so excited. Me, my mom, papi, aunt, and uncle packed into my family 's maroon ford explorer, and we headed out to eat. If only we would have stayed off the road that day. After dinner, we all got back int he car and started driving back home.
“Hop in the car,” my dad said. His outstretched arms guiding my eyes to the open doors. Our 2009 Honda Odyssey was a beige colored behemoth. Comically overstuffed with passengers and cargo, the sporadic rumbling of the V6 engine was disconcerting as we hit the road. “Will we even reach Meredith at all,” I wonder.
