Three Memorable Summer Vacations
I hope you enjoy these three stories that come from memorable events in my life. It was kind of difficult to write from the perspective of others, but as I went along, I was good with it. I wrote a diary entry, blog entries and a short story. The diary entry is from my sister’s perspective, the blogs are from my friend’s perspective and the short story is my own. I choose these three stories because they are memories that had to do with important people in my life. All my stories are in the summer because that is my favorite season and that is when really I get to have fun. My stories are about special people in my life and the memories I have with them.
Today is an exciting day. Deysi, Julia, Dad, Freddy, my niece Diana and I are in Maryland. This is our summer vacation for the week as a family. I really enjoy family vacations. This one is really nice because we didn’t have to stay at a hotel, we are staying at the house of some family relatives that Freddy has. We ate so much pizza because our relatives in here own a pizza store. We went to many malls and stores.The malls here are really big and far away from home. You have to drive many miles just to find a store. Deysi got a nice dress that fit her just right. Her quince is coming up so she bought the dress that she will wear after midnight. It was pink with a lot of glitter. I bought some shirts to wear at home. Julia bought clothes for Diana. My little niece is so cute, she said, “Mommy this looks pretty can I get it? I want to wear it to the party.” My sister said, “ Look at her so little and she wants to pick out her own outfit. She loves to party. I think I’m going to have some problems when she grows up.” Every one laughed. Freddy didn’t buy anything because like any other guy, he does not have patience to go shopping. My dad just walked around with us and did not buy anything at all. We also went to a party which was really fun. In the party Deysi said she was so tired and she did not dance. I was all over the dance floor. I really enjoy dancing. Julia, Freddy and Dad were dancing as well. Deysi was just sitting there, rejecting every one who tried to take her out to dance. I think she was getting mad because she wanted to leave but Dad said she had to wait. We left really late and it was such a fun party. We recently got home and are really to go to sleep after such a long day. In here, the night is actually beautiful because you can actually see the stars and everything is so calming. I think Maryland is a really good place to relax and rest.
It is the start of the week. I am so excited. I am going to spend my whole entire week with Rose. Today we went to the Body Exhibition museum. It was very interesting. Rose was the one with the idea to go to the museum. I wasn’t so excited about it but I actually ended up liking it. It was interesting seeing how we look inside. Rose looked like she really enjoyed it. She kept on really all the signs and took a long look at each statue. She told me that it was such a cool thing to look at. She was disgusted by the lungs of a smoker. As soon as she saw it, she walked away and gave me a look of disgust. I was laughing at her because she made a funny face. After the museum we ate pizza and then headed home. It was such a long ride by train. Rose was so tired she fell asleep on the train. I didn’t even bother to wake her up which was a bad decision because afterwards she complain of why didn’t I wake her up. I think she felt a little shy about me watching her sleep. After all, it was a great day with Rose.
Today I’m going to Splish Splash with Rose. I have never been there but Rose said it will be fun. It was a very long way to get there. It took us like two hours long. Since I was the one driving, my feet kind of got tired. It was very hot today which is why Rose really wanted to go to Splish Splash today. When we got there, Rose did not want to take off her dress because apparently she was shy to let me see her with a bathing suit. I convinced her that there is nothing to be shy about and she finally took off her dress. We went on some rides that were very short. The lines were not so long which was good. Rose said that usually there is long lines that take two hours just to get on the rides. Rose screamed on one of the rides. I was laughing at her and she gave me this mean face. I think her face expressions are funny but in the cute way. We had so much fun and we both agreed that the Lazy River was our favorite ride since we both are lazy. When we headed home, we talked a lot. Rose was the one talking the most. I think she was just so happy that she had so much to share with me. Splish Splash was very fun.
Today we are going bowling. We are taking two of Rose’s friends; Nicky and Jackie. They are very nice and cool. It was Rose and I against Nicky and Jackie. It was the first time I met Nicky, I met Jackie before long time ago. Rose and I won the game. Rose kept on filming us and there was a very funny video. Jackie was so funny she did not hit any of the bowling pins, not even one. I was the one scoring the most. Rose was good too. We played two games and afterwards went to a restaurant to eat. We ate some Ecuadorian food which was really good. Rose and I sat together across from Nicky and Jackie. We had a long conversation and afterwards we decided to leave and I dropped all of them home. Rose was the last. I am really enjoying her company.
Today is very hot. Rose and I decided to go to the pool. This time the pool was not so far. It was like 30 minutes away. We had some breakfast first and then we headed to the pool. This time Rose was not shy and had no problem showing her bathing suit. We sat in the bench for a little while for our food to digest. We talked about how fun this whole week has been. Tomorrow is the last day we have to hang out. After a while, we went inside the pool. The water was nice and warm but not too hot or too cold. We played with water, and it was fun. I was teaching Rose how to swim. I had to hold her every time because she was scared she would drown. She told me her story about how she almost drowned once in the pool when she was 7 years old. The pool was so fun but it was time to head home.
Unfortunately today is the last day of the week, which means my week with Rose is over. Today we planned to just relax and enjoy our last day together for this summer vacation. So we went to blockbuster and rented a movie. We went to my house and Rose made some popcorn. We watched Wanted. It was a good movie and Rose really liked it. She said the beginning was cool. After we watched the movie, we played some dominoes. She won two games which she was really proud of. She seem to be so happy. Later we order some Peruvian food. We ate and talked so much. We basically did like a whole reflection on our week together. Rose’s favorite day was the one we went to Splish Splash. I told her that today was the best day for me because it was just a relaxing day. After we finished our lunch we watched some TV shows and went out to the park. We played some basketball. Rose was not good at it but she tried because of me. Basketball is not one of her favorite sports but I convinced her to play with me and she did. After that I took her to dinner. We went to an Ecuadorian restaurant. We ate there and just talked and talked till it was time to take her home. We both had so much fun together. It was the best week ever for me and I’m sure she feels the same way.
I remember that summer vacation to Ecuador like it was yesterday. I remember that I was so excited because I haven’t gone in such a long time and plus it was my first time going alone. I was to meet my father and my older sister over there. The main reason for this vacation was because of my father’s wedding. I was so ready for this wedding and to see my family. I was extremely thrilled to see my number one aunt. My aunt Esperanza was really nice and she cooked for my sister and I some really good food. Everything was going so good, I went to many places and had fun. Later, my sister decided to cook rice. She cooked it with the rice cooker, and that was a bad idea. After eating the rice she cooked, I felt sick. This ruined everything I was sick for about a week. Fortunately, my wonderful aunt gave me some medicine that made me feel better and I was able to attend my father’s wedding. Although, before the wedding I went to a concert. It was such an amazing concert and I had lots of fun. It was most definitely the best vacations in Ecuador that I could of ever imagine.
