Personal Narrative: My Trip To Pleasanton, TX

Improved Essays
I arrived in Pleasanton, TX in the afternoon, seeing my parents after a year was so relieving. Of course the first thing Dad says is “I’m hungry and I want Mexican food”. So they took me to eat Mexican food at a little restaurant off of highway 281. Afterwards we ate fresh homemade ice-cream at the local dairy. Which eating Mexican and taking a trip to the local dairy with my parents was some of the things I did as a child. Childhood was the base of the happiness in my life. Having a loving family has been the best for my success.
Dad made banana French toast this morning. After breakfast my mom and I left the kids with dad and went garage selling. We have always enjoyed shopping together, it is our bonding time. We found books and some DVDs, it was an accomplished trip. We met my grandmother at Café Chris for lunch. I haven’t seen her in about a

It takes all day because there is a lot of land. The land looks so beautiful after we are done and it’s time for a hard earned meal we ate country fried steak with mashed potatoes and green beans. Afterwards we played our family game of 10,000 and talked. Home is a wonderful place to be, it’s where I have been loved the most. Dad has always told me my home is your home. When I was about four years old my dad would drop a handful of coins on the porch before he would leave for work. He knew it would make me happy and feel rich. When he would come home from work he would always have candy in his pocket for me. Sea World is an all-time favorite place that we love to visit. We watched a ski show, fed the fish, viewed the sharks, dolphins, penguins, and played in the water park. Everyone had a fulfilled day and went home with a smile and sunburn. Making happy memories heal the soul. Sea World has been part of our family trips since I was a little girl. Going back years later and brings back happy memories that I will cherish

    After two hours of being there we left and hit up a 24 hour Dairy Queen got a few ice cream cones then headed back to the house after a long day Within that month in a half of being in Alabama and hanging out with the family has been interesting. My mom, sister and I had seen and experienced quite a few things. One day when we were at the park, I had spotted out two guys wearing a Cookie Monster and a minion’s costume suit. I can never go to a public place with one of my cousins because he acts a little goofy laughing and pointing at people trying to get attention. Sunday evening I went to a Bowling Alley with a few people but, I never did play a game of bowling.…

    As everyone packs food onto their plates I can hear the excitement in their voice when they get the macaroni or dressing and say more please. The fried turkey also gets lots of compliments. Our guest always say how it is so tender and juicy with crispy skin. Some people even have my dad to make the turkey for their family thanksgiving dinner. When it is time for dessert nothing hit the spot better than hot peach cobbler from the oven topped with freezing cold vanilla ice cream.…

    I loved it so much that one year I asked for it to be made for my birthday. If we did not make three green bean casseroles then there would not be enough for everyone to have seconds, and we all love to have extra. Thanksgiving with my family is always a blast, with amazing food. The time spent with my family after being in school so long and not seeing them is refreshing. The food is genuinely exquisite, and I look forward to it every year.…

    That was not the case. Although he lived 1,500 miles away, my father has always been a major factor in my life. I would spend all summer with him, which was my favorite because he would let me do activities that my mother typically would not, like playing video games or eating junk food. Along with seeing him all summer, I would also see him every holiday. My mother would invite him over for Thanksgiving dinner every year.…

    For the first day, of my ten day visit, we’re going to one of my favorite restaurants, Ruby’s Diner. It is the heavens of freshly smoked meats. Everyday they cook and smoke fresh meat behind the counter, which you can watch; this meat ranges from chicken cuts, pork cuts, and beef cuts. My step-dad, Roma, 24, is a big guy: he’s about six foot three and over two hundred pounds of Army muscle with one sleeve of tattoos on his left arm and he loves to eat! He budgets just about everything unless it comes to food.…

    We had some lunch at a park, and my parents were busy catching up on talk with my Grandparents, Aunt, and two Uncles. Meanwhile, when they were talking, all of us snuck off to a playground nearby, and had a great time playing with our two other cousins from California. We stayed there for around an hour or two, then headed back to the house to make dinner. My Grandpa made his famous St. Louis ribs, my mom made her German potato salad, and my Aunt went to the grocery store for chips and popsicles. After that wonderful dinner, we got the family picture (my memorable object).…
