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.
Every child has a bright vibrant swimsuit on; smiles spread ear to ear on each face. It was once said that some of the younger girls pretended to be mermaids during practice. Laughter erupted from those girls as they pretend to go on missions saving the deep sea. The twister slide is close by. It’s windy turns and sleek edges provide the perfect ride.
The boat staff cut of the fish and now we needed to go back to the hotel room. The next day which is the day before we leave Florida we decided to binge out because the whole week we've been doing things. I slept in late obviously and so did my brother. When we woke up we got into our our bathing suits to go in the pool and the hot tub, Plus it's outdoors. We got out a couple minutes later because my mom gathered some breakfast from the lobby for us.
It was a long drive to California, and now we’re on this boat. We’re starving, the teachers said that we would get McDonalds for breakfast, but we never did, and our bus driver said we weren’t allowed to eat on their bus. Of course we did anyway, but the snacks we all brought from home could only get us so far. We managed to walk through the mess of people and get in the long line to buy food. I was hoping that eating something
Waking up bright and early on a hot summer day, I get ready for an exciting day at Blue Bayou. I do not realize at this moment that today, July 22, would be a day for me to remember. I put my bathing suit and clothes on and get in my car. I meet the other members from St. Dominic CYO at St. Dominic School. We load the bus and get on our way to Blue Bayou.
You’d think when someone says, “Oh, I had a near-death experience one time,” that people would be in their face worriedly asking them what happened. If I were to explain to people how I almost died, they would be laughing. During the summer, my family flew to Cancun, Mexico for a vacation. The hotel was quite charming, and there was a giant pool! Which was actually unfortunate because I couldn’t swim at that time.
Knowing how negatively this would have impacted my life I would not have moved to Florida. Driving away from my simple life in Cincinnati the exciting tough of living on the beach and working as a barmaid came over me. It was a hot June afternoon as I packed everything I owned into my large conversion van. I hung clothes on the clothing
Alabama Trip My mom and and dad told me in December that we were going to Gulf Shores, Alabama to visit my grandparents.Gulf Shores is the southernmost town in Alabama, located on the north coast of the Gulf of Mexico. I have been there twice when I was little. I remember that I collected seashells and went swimming with Boppa in the pool. I felt happy that I was going to Alabama again. I like seeing my grandparents and I like that they are still there.
This summer was filled with great times and a lot of fun with the family. For example, my trip to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. It all started out at 7:30 AM and with me, I was my morning self wearing baggy sweatpants, and an out of control bed head awaiting to be tamed. My sister Sam and I gather our things before we head into grandma’s car for a trip of a lifetime. “Beep beep!” The sound of my grandma's car made us both rush ourselves outside.
we went to a few stores and brought souvernors..When we was done souverner shopping we wen back to the hotel and cooked hamburgers and watched somemore scary movies. All the kids really wanted to go swimming and the beach but the adults didn't so we stayed at the hotel. The next day we finally went swimming for the first time since we been in florida. We had so much fun. we played games in the pool and more.
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.
Six Flags and the mine train. Near the middle or end of the summer my cousins and I were on facetime playing a game called ‘Growtopia’. We were talking and Ally told me that they were going to Six Flags on Sunday and that she and Abby could each bring a friend. I told her that was cool,then she asked me if I wanted to come, I told her I would like to and thought it would be fun. I had to bring a few things like sunscreen, flip-flops, my swimming suit, tennis shoes, ect ect.
It was a cool day in the Poconos Mountains, we had made a reservation to go white water rafting. The next morning we had to wake up extra early to eat breakfast so we weren’t late for our trip. When my parents said, “were going white water rafting” I thought we were going straight down to the river , but of course it wasn’t. When we got there we each had to fill out papers clearly stating our medical information but, of course my parents had to sign too. Once everything had been signed we had to wait about thirty minutes for everyone else to get there.
