My Trip to Holiday World

I could not believe it. I was going to holiday world for the third time! This time was extra special because my grandparents were going with us. As soon as dad got Kyndal into her car seat, we were off. Passing countless road signs and construction zones, I kept thinking to myself if we were ever going to get there. My grandparents were going to meet us at the cabin after we got back from our first day of Holiday world, so they were driving separately. Sis would not keep quiet and I had no headphones or earplugs, so I felt like I was being driven nuts instead of my dad’s Silverado.

By the radar it looked like it would stop by the time the park opened, so it wasn’t too bad. We took the trolley there this time so we wouldn’t have to take the truck and probably park way out in the parking lot. The trolley took us right to the front gates, picked up people that wanted to go back to lake Rudolf, and left. We got into the gates and I immediately talked my grandpa into going on the raven with me. It was still raining, so I knew those rain drops would not feel pleasant… especially where I was taking my grandpa. We got up there with hardly anyone in the line. I got onto the front row line. My grandpa thought I was crazy, but he did it with me. The stinging of the rain was like thousands of needles being thrown at you non stop. We got off and immediately went over to the Splashin

    I skipped school to take my behind-the-wheel drivers test. Both of my parents came to support me while my body was crawling with nerves. I didn’t really drive often before this so, I didn’t really know what to expect and felt like I would make dumb mistakes that all older, experienced drivers knew about. I’m not going to go through the whole processes of my test step by step because it’s pretty self explanatory, but long story short, I got my license. While all my friends had their own cars, I had to drive my dad’s car which is a 2014 White Toyota Highlander.…
