Over the Border Every year my family decides what to do for the holidays and where to go. Most of the time I have no say in it because my uncles insist on visiting or they invite us over. It doesn’t help that all of my family lives in Texas, California, and Mexico.

Last year we took a long trip to Chihuahua, Mexico which is the biggest part/state of Mexico where my mother is from.

And knowing that i was able to do such a thing would make me feel accomplished.

The drive to Bethel wasn’t too bad, it was full of laughs and lots of hash.
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.

An Adventure at Myrtle Beach Myrtle Beach is where you can let all of your worries seep away into the ocean like a river. It’s a spectacular place that I love to go to during the summer with my family. The last time that I can remember is six years ago, when I was in 2nd grade.
