TheAmusementParkatVirgin ia
Have you ever been to Virginia? I have! One summer my parents
decided to make a trip to Virginia. Early in the morning, they tiptoed in our
rooms waking me up, along with my two sisters Riley and Mackenzie. Get
dressedandmeetusatthecar,”theywhispere d.
It is 4:00 am ! What is going on?” I wondered to myself as I tried to
wakeup.
Still half asleep, we got in the car and started our journey. After
ridingforalittlewhile,Icuriouslyasked,Wherearewegoing?
It’s a surprise! said my mom and dad with their eyes twinkling like
thestarsinthesky.
After driving for what seemed like a million hours, we arrived and
began e xploring the are a. Later we went to the hotel to unpack our
suitcasesandgetagoodnight’srest.
The next morning we went to the spars ely crowded amusement park.
Busch Gardens It was incredible! We smelled buttery popcorn with a hint
of salt the minute we walked in. A surge of energy charg ed through me
and we took off to e xplore the park. The place was hug e and divided into
different areas to represent countries around the world. This is so cool! I
yelledexcitedly.
All day long we raced throug h the park going on fast and wild rides,
including a gigantic roller coaster. Just like the rolle r coaster, my heart
raced as fast as lightning flashing in the sky when we sped down the steep
hills.
Let’sneverleave!mysistersandIbegged.Thisisawesome!
Sadly, the park announced it was about to close. However, before
we went back to the hotel, my parents took us to a candy store to pick out
a treat. There were so many choices, but my eyes quickly closed in on the
biggest lollipop ever. It looked like a fair I couldn’t resist and my sisters
and I each picked out our favorite flavor. It was the perfect ending to a
perfect trip. I had so much fun that weekend in Virginia. It was definitely
worththeearlymorningwakeup!
