Then on the next day everyone decided to go to Mount Rushmore that day, so we had breakfast, then later in the evening we were off. So later the day we went to MT.Rushmore and took pictures and talked to each other for a little, then ran around and played games with my cousins. Then later when it got dark, we watch the fireworks that came from the mountain the where huge and incredible. Then when were leaving to head back to the campsite when luckily where saw Crazy Horse on our way back to camp.
The trip to Canada was about two days long by car. On the way there we stayed in a hotel overnight. When we got to the hotel we took our luggage to our rooms. We went down stairs and we found the swimming pool, we went swimming and then we went to bed. The next morning we got up and packed and we were bock on the road. It was kind of fun because we had to cross the border into Canada. We had to show them our passports and our birth certificates to get across. On the way to go to our cabin we saw a bear cross the road in front of us. Then when we got to the cabin we
We went to New Mexico for a week to build a playground. The trip was long and hot but it was worth it. The playground was going to be built at a Manuelito Najavo Childrens Home in Gallup, New Mexico. In the middle of their dorms. We arrived at a cottage and starting unpacking, choosing rooms, and all that. Dinner came, we all took showers and went to bed.
One our way there we made a stop to meet up with my mom’s aunt and give her flowers because she was really sick. We also made a stop to see our cousins and play to get energy out. These were just things to help us stay entertained for a little bit before getting back in the car for a long ride. As soon as we got to the hotel we got to go swimming and watch the fireworks from our hotel. That day was one of the best days I have ever had. I was genuinely happy for once. The next day we woke up got all ready in our disney gear and headed for the park. My mom had gotten a call the night before from one of her customers that lives in California saying her husband works there so if we wanted we could get in for free instead of buy tickets when we got there. This was a huge blessing because we really didn’t have the money to go but my mom wanted it to work so she moved some payments around but we didn’t have to worry about it because we got in for
My best friend and I were so excited, we were going to Six Flags some where we haven’t been in years. Around this time we were twelve years old and thought we were the most adventurous people in the world. The night before going to Six Flags I spent the night over her house. My best friend and I couldn’t stop talking about the rides we would get on, which one would be first and what we were going to eat.
When I was a young child I would love to hear my parents tell me that we were going on a trip. I would be full of excitement, because I knew that we would be going to a place that I had never seen before. My parents, my brother, and I would pack our luggage and venture out in our small gray minivan. Three of my most cherished memories in our minivan are when we went to Disney World, the beach, and the mountains.
I still remember the first time I went to mexico. I was going turn 8 years old I was short and chubby I was wearing all black because I like wearing black. How ever I was sad I was going to leave all my thing like my room I had a big bed and a big tv and a console so I took the decision to take it with me so I can entertain myself. We were just waiting for my to check if there were no problems with the van because we were packed up already. Four minutes later he finished checking the van we left the houses all alone with no one to take care of it. When we were just going to get on the freeway the was a red light there was something white coming out the front of of the van. Then we fixed the place was small with a lot of cool red cars.We
And, by nightfall we finally made it to the west side of Oregon. There were trees everywhere. Everything looked so green. And, there were mountains..... MOUNTAINS!!! I've never seen them in person before. They were so big, and even though it was the middle of the summer you see the white snow on the tallest ones. In Iowa, it is pretty flat. My Mom said, "We are going to stay at a hotel then go to the beach." I had never seen a beach before either, so I was so excited. And, sure enough the next day We were at the beach. We were there for hours. My sister and I built a sandcastle for the first time in our lives, and we swam in the ocean. I thought, "Was it worth it, to sit in a sweaty, hot, and dry car?" Yes! It was worth it to sit in a sweaty, hot, and dry car for 3 days straight, because Oregon is great! And, i'm close to my real Dad, and other family too. Soon, I would start 2nd grade at Banks Elementary School. And, a whole new adventure
After we got off the airplane, we rented a car and drove to my Uncle Joe?s house. We finally got there and then we all went out to eat dinner. We went to some Italian restraunt and boy was it good. To this day, I have never tasted anything as good as the Veal Picata I had that day. I ate so much that I could hardly move and once I got back to my uncle?s, I just passed out and went to bed. I had a big and exciting day ahead of me. I was going to Universal Studios and I couldn?t wait.
