  • It was one of those Dad-planned-the-trip vacations, so naturally, mom, my sister, and I were rather dreading it. When we crossed from Arizona into Utah, already we hated the jump from ninety degrees Fahrenheit to one hudred and fourteen degrees, and it was four in the afternoon. We finally found...

  •      When my aunt called me a few weeks before Christmas and invited me to go with her and my cousin Allynn to New York for Christmas, I was ecstatic! I had never done anything like that before! Soon I traveled all the way to West Virginia, where my aunt and cousin live, so we could drive the...

  • It was days before school was going to open back up and I was super excited, but my family didn't go anywhere for the summer! My aunt, the person always on-the-go, decided she would help my family and I out by planning a one-day trip! 'Where are we going?' I asked. 'To the Big Apple!' my Mother...
