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.
We went to the water park and the first ride we did was croolers twist, and splash out. These rides were awesome. It started getting dark so we started to head home. Once we got back to my cousins it got dark so we went to sleep. When I woke up I went to my grandmas house (they live near each other).
I just recently visited Miami Beach, Florida and I found out that they have really bad mosquitos because of the Zika Virus. “Florida has confirmed local transmissions of Zika Virus are occurring in two areas Miami - Dade County (floridahealth).” I was packing up all of my stuff for my trip to Miami Beach, Florida because I have really been wanting to go see my cousin Jaxon. We haven't seen each other in so long because we live About 18 hours apart. I had to stop at the gas station a few times but it was worth it. Whenever I pulled up at his house I had gotten to hang out but then we went to bed.
So me and my dad get the cables and lock everything up. For example the chute, generator, blowers, showbox, and fans. So now after we get that done, we all head out to the truck, then we go find our hotel, get settled in. After we get that done, we all go find something to eat. After that we just got a ride around in this town for a while and now we go back to the hotel and go swimming, take showers, then fall asleep.
I tried to ignore the smell and got in line for a local fast food restaurant. I order two corn dogs and a soda. For being on the highway, the food tastes pretty good. I sat with my roommates for the next four nights and we ate fast so we could get back on the bus and to Washington DC as soon as possible. Unfortunately, we did not end up getting back on the road for about 45 minutes thanks to the long line to the smelly restrooms.
We hopped right into the boat and did some tubing and wake boarding. That night we all came back to the house and grilled out. Everyone was worn out just within 4 hours and we went straight to sleep. The second day was even more fun! When we woke up we were so ready to get on the boat and do it again.
Last summer I went on vacation to Puerto Rico with my cousins. We did really fun things like snorkeling, a boat ride, and eating at many wonderful places. Although all those sound really fun, I want to talk about the time I met the most cutest, most fluffiest, most friendliest, animal ever. It all started off on a breezy summer night while my cousins and family were chillin’ at our hotel pool. We were quite tired because we had just come back from our filling italian dinner.
I also tried the chicken kebab which had a nice bit of spice but could not fit in dessert. We walked down the promenade and decided to have a drink in the On Air bar for the first time. A young American couple sat besides and guy was only 22, he was in the marines and had travelled to many countries. We were waiting for the show Come Fly with Me to start and watched Usain Bolt last individual Olympic race which he won the 200 metres race quite comfortably. The show was due to start in the Opal theatre so we took our seats and ordered more drinks.
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.
I went to the beach and went swimming almost every day. When I didn’t want to walk to the beach I could go to the back yard and jump in the pool we had. And at night when the pool started to get cold I could go on the upstairs balcony and get in the hot tub. The pool had lights in it but the hot tub had lights and jets. While I was down in North Carolina we went to a place with big sand dunes.
The cabin was really big ,a lot bigger than I imagined, my little cousin and I ran in as fast as we could we each only grabbed one of our bags. We got an upstairs room and it bunk beds and a big bathroom , I chose the bottom bed so she could have the top plus I had the best view of the TV first thing we did we unpack all of our stuff then we went to watch TV in the family room. We played games and hung out till midnight then it was time we went to bed
After about an hour of people showering, we all piled in a car and pulled off to Six Flags. Once we got there, we found a spot and got our tickets. Everyone was so excited except for me. We went to a roller coaster. I told my mom that I was scared but she told me to try it and I did.
My friend Josh had this bright idea to drink a whole half a bottle of brown liquor by himself! All of them are like lit before 3:00. So the day goes on and we usually end up at the “Strip” at night. Usually we find our own way to the Strip but this particular year Mrs. Christie was nice enough to take us to the Strip. So we all pack up in the “church van”; all my friends are high, drunk, and everything else and we head to the Strip.
I looked out the window with Matthew and saw a colossal water slide. We got our bathing suits on and zoomed down to the pool like rockets. Our parents came down soon. We swam for hours and hours until our fingers looked like wizened raisins. We got dressed and ready to go out to Kobes for dinner.
