My large group had been taken aback two people making all 20 of us feel a little smaller. As we walked on the sidewalks, we saw gondolas serenading young couples. A phone buzzed as we got a call from my aunt telling us se had finished dinner and she had some exciting news. My family and I were confused but some of the older people had an idea of what was going on. We met her in front of a store selling world famous Italian gelato.
So, me, my boyfriend Shawn, his sister and her friend wanted to ride the rip roarin rapids. Unfortunately, the line was too long so we just proceeded to go to Starbucks and got a vanilla bean Frappuccino and left. We did not get back to Winston until real late, that night. This was a day I will never forget. I had so much fun with all of them.
“Wake up sleepy heads,” was the first sound I heard Thursday morning. We started off the trip driving four hours in the jerky SUV. Altogether, there were five people stuck in the car. Molly, Katie, me, Grace, my mother, and Maggie. My mother packed snacks to feed a herd of wild buffalo.
Over the summer, in August, I traveled to California by myself. About a week later, my brother (Austin) came by himself and a couple days after, my cousin Joseph flew over as well. We stayed at my aunt and uncle’s penthouse in downtown Los Angeles. Then on Saturday morning we set off to San Francisco in a rental car for 5 and half hours. The ride was super long but we had some beautiful sights to watch as we drove by on the warm pleasant day.
It made me feel sad that we couldn’t stay any longer but it was amazing to have experienced all the fun with my favorite friends and family all together. The ride back was noisy with all the funny things that had happened to us and all the things we were taking back home as memories of our week. It took us longer to get home because there was a lot of traffic, but we made it. Everyone was asleep and once in a while my dad would make my mom drive because he was tired. Having spent my week close to the beach was something phenomenal, mostly if it’s with special
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 '.
Although, this wasn’t a normal day. I had anticipated too long for this day to let the early morning drowsiness hold me back. Seizing my mom’s hand in mine, I skipped down Main Street, crossing over the train tracks in the middle of the street as I went. Slowing to a stroll as we neared the front of the castle, I eventually stopped completely to gaze up at the majestic building. My mom pounced on the opportunity for a photo and asked me to turn around and pose in front of the castle.
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.
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 pulled out of the neighborhood and into the streets of Orlando, my mom leading the way. Our house is only 15 minutes away from the park; that made this more exciting because we did not have to wait too much longer. We drove the seemingly prolonged journey for approximately 10 minutes when my mom screams out, “S**t! I forgot the tickets!” Those of us in the car with her were startled at her sudden outburst and once we realized what she was yelling about, we all moaned and groaned in disbelief and sorrow for the loss of time this just caused us. She called the people in the other cars, told them the news, and we all turned around to head back to our residence.
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.
I started to ride my scooter home getting faster and faster up to the point where the grey side walk was a blur below me. I got home and Getting inside my mom told me that we were having a visitor for dinner tonight, and that I had to be on my best behavior. With blank eyes I starred at her not really knowing what she said. Trying to comprehend what she did say I forgot about it. The dinner table was
I wanted oatie to go with us but my mom wanted patches so she won and patches got to go with us. we gave the other two to loving homes. Early on the weekend we had the trucks all packed up and we were ready to go. we left early in the morning so traffic wouldn 't be bad, it took us about 2 days to get down to South Carolina. When we go there we went to my Aunt and Uncles house where we stayed for about a year before
It was finally the day I got to see my mom after two whole months. She moved to Florida to find a house down there so I could move down with her. For two months it was basically misery. I have never been two weeks without her, let alone 2 months. I was heartbroken and she was too.
Luckily, I had met a girl from Hannibal who was also attending the congress meeting and it seemed like all my nerves and worries disappeared and I was ecstatic to get on that plane and get to Boston. When we arrived we were split up and put in different resident halls. So I made my way to my hall and spent a good thirty minutes looking for my room. Once I met my roommates, we made our way to the meeting spot. The line to get into the stadium was at least a mile long.
