When I was around 6 or 7 years old, my family decided to go to Yosemite National Park over the summer. We went on Saturday and during the morning so we could get there early. After about 30 minutes on the road, we stopped at a resting area. We ate there for about 15 minutes and used the restroom. My dad told us that if we wanted to get there early, we had to go right then. My family and I were back on the road and arrived there in 2 hours. I slept the whole way so I couldn't watch the environment as we passed by. When we got there, we entered the park and ate. I was so excited that I ran ahead of my family. I could feel the cool breeze and smell the fresh tree like scent as I ran. My brother asked if we could split into groups and my dad agreed. We split into groups and we started our adventure. I was with my grandma and my sister. The other group was my dad, my mom, and my brother. We also decided to meet at the a certain point at sunset.
On a blazing hot summer early morning with the city traffic roaring! And the hot sun blazing, birds chirping and the smell of fresh green grass. Me and my family were packing and getting ready for our yearly powwow trail trip. My mooshum and kokum were they’re usual selves laughing and cracking jokes, I and my cousins knew they weren’t that funny but laughed at their jokes anyways. After we were all packed and ready we all piled into my kookum’s van and set off to our destination with the hot sun reflecting off the black pavement. The drive to Muskoday reserve was long and tiring, the van was humid and making us irritated, so I decided to roll down my window to let the summer air cool us off, the cool breeze was flowing and the music was booming! A bit later we arrived to our destination with our eyes popping taking in all the scenery around us, mind you this was our first time being in the reserve Muskoday. The excitement of being there and meeting new people was over whelming, the anxious feeling of just wanting to run off and enjoy the scenery with my cousins and friends I had met before from the powwow trails we took yearly.
Every summer as a young child my family drove to Florida. I, unable to sleep in the back of moving car would spend hours on end staring out the car window admiring the moving scenerary. I would stick my head out of the window as the crisp air would hit my face as I watched the trees changes from pine trees to palm trees, counting the cows on farms and simply enjoying the sceneary like a movie. These will be memories I will treasurer forever. But now because of the high tech technology in the society in which we live in today children will never be able to experience the same joys I had while viewing the moving sceneary in the back seat of my mothers mini van. In Richard Louv’s informative article, Last Child in the Woods he explains the deliama
After I got through the struggle of packing a bunch of randomness it was time for the tedious car ride. I slept half the way there and looked out the window at all the new roads and landmarks. We drove for seven hours, but then decided to stop and get some rest in buffalo minnesota.
On my 7th birthday my mom, dad, brother, my grandma and grandpa and I all went to Kemah Boardwalk it was right by the the cool gulf of Mexico. I went on all the fun rides except 2. One of the rides I went on was a train that would go in a dark tunnel then “BOOM” it was a gun showdown but of course it was fake. Then I went on a ride that you were in a circularised room with big windows. We would go up and a person would talk to you about the gulf of Mexico and you could see the gulf of Mexico. My head was getting dizzy so I sat down. Then I went on a roller coaster that was made entirely out of wood the one thing that was not out of wood was under the cool cart. It was huge. When we went on it was crazy at one point we went straight down when I got off my stomach was in a knot I felt like I was going to throw up.
This summer, in the first week of August, we went to Brighton, Michigan. I along with my grandma Sharon, my same age uncles: Logan and Cole, and my brother Hayden were all going. At 10:30 AM we left, getting into her in her car piling our stuff in. This consisted for me of 3 books, a deck of cards, a stick of deodorant and a few changes of clothes. I finished the first book, Rangers Apprentice The Lost Stories, about three hours down the road and halfway through it we stopped at the Iowa I-80 truck stop, the world's largest truck stop, for lunch. After that I talked with Cole for another two hours. We stopped at a rest stop just out of Chicago and stretched out our legs. from there it was a straight run up into Michigan and from there into
We left after my parents got off work one night. Our camper was all packed and we were ready to set off on our journey to New Mexico. Before we got to New Mexico we had to make a stop at my dad's cousin's hose to get the jet ski and then we were on our way to Ute Lake. We finally got there late that night.
I thought the water was cold and the salt burned my eyes. Since the salt hurt my eyes we walked to the beach store. They had every thing you would dream of at a beach.We bought some goggles and we also purchased a boogie board. When we got back from the store we thought it was a good time to eat because we were dry. After we ate we went back down to the beach. I put my goggles on and I got my boogie board and I had a blast! I found some really cool shells. After we got some shells we brought them up to our parents. We put them on a towel and when we came back we noticed that some of the shells moved! We all freaked out because we did not know what happened. I watched them for a bit and realized that they were hermit crabs! We returned them to the Gulf and kept swimming. We Went out to dinner at this alligator place. They had real alligators outside the restaurant! We went inside and ate. I had some chicken with fries. We got a appetiser that had the alligator. I really wanted to try it and see what it taste like. I took a bite and liked it! I took a bite of my chicken and I could not taste a difference. After that we went mini golfing. I came in second and my Grandma came in first. She golfs on like a real
Before we go back on the thruway I was hungry again. So we went to a Friendly’s for the final part of our trip. After relaxing for awhile and eating we figured it was finally time to go home. So we go back in the car and headed home. Before we even got to the thruway Jim was asleep in the back seat. I fell asleep right after we got our toll
I wanted to take that boat out and go tubing for the first time in my life. I was so excited that I even offered to blow up the tube by myself with nothing but my lungs, not knowing we had an air pump. Finally, after what felt like hours of begging like the annoying twelve year old I was, my dad said it was time to go. My sisters and I got our life jackets and wet shirts on, while my baby brother and step mom got on the boat, and my dad sat in the driver’s seat. My sisters and I were on the back on the tube, trying to find the best way to position our arms so we didn’t fall off. My dad turned the key to the boat and suddenly, my excitement turned to sheer panic. What happens if I fall off? What if my sisters fall off? What if there was a lake monster or a really big fish in the water? From that moment on, I was determined to stay on, so I held on to the handles for dear
This was rare since each of my siblings were playing a travel sport at the time, aside from my sister who was too young. We were also able to get my uncle, aunt, and cousin, Jimmy, to go with us. On this trip, our goal was to spend as much time as we could at the beaches and exploring the beautiful outdoors. We did not want to be wrapped up in our phones or stuck in the house. On the second to last day of the trip, we decided to take a bike ride down to our favorite beach. However, something was different. My whole family had gotten on a bike and began to ride down the roads with me, and there is not a time where I can remember them not saying a word. There was not a sound in the air. I could only hear the whistling of the wind and the tread of the bike tires rubbing across the pavement walkways. Although I love my loud family, this was a moment of peace. I had cleared my mind and was able to just focus on the road ahead of

One day my family went out o a really big boat to go to a snorkeling location by Puerto Rico. Fisherman where not aloud to go fishing where we where snorkeling. While we were snorkeling my dad stepped on a sea urchin, it was so not pretty. After snorkeling we went to get ice cream. It wasn't ordinary ice cream it was hand made ice cream! I had a monster cookie waffle cone. It was so delicious I could die. The next day my family went surfing. It was hard at the beginning because all the waves would nock you right off
My mother took my brothers and I over to one of my mom's coworkers (and good friend’s) house on the white river.whenever we went there we knew we were either fishing or kayaking,I have never done them both at the same time, but this day I guess I did both of them.
