It was a wonderful spring break where birds were
chirping and squirrels were munching on nuts. I was planning on spending
my spring break with my friends until I overheard my mom and my older
sister arguing about going camping for spring break. Then my mom yelled,
I went and she told me, “This weekend you’re not going to go with your
My mom has curly black hair like curly fries. She was wearing a blue
necklace with her blue and white earrings.
My older sister, Leslie, was wearing an Aeropostale light pink sweater
with black leggings.
I was really bummed I couldn’t go with my friends, and I didn't want to
go camping either, but my mom forced me. That same night we all packed
our luggage. It was a big mess like a circus on the move. I had
everything packed, but something was missing: my favorite gold chain. I
can't go far from home without it. I looked for it all around the house
and it seemed like the earth sucked it right in. Then I screamed, “Did
anyone see my gold chain?”
“No!” everyone said at the same time.
We all went to sleep, but I was still searching for my gold chain. I
finally gave up and then I decided to go to sleep because it was about
midnight. The next morning my mom told us to wake up and go downstairs
for breakfast. When I got downstairs I could smell bacon with egg. Next
thing you know we all rushed to eat. We got in the car and were on our
way camping. The luggage was moving too much in the trunk, so we pulled
over. My mom decided to put them below our legs and that meant less
Finally we arrived at our camping spot. I noticed that there was a
redwood tree that looked like it had been shocked by lightning. It had
spider webs full of insects. Then we got to our cabin and noticed that
the cabin was dusty and hasn’t been cleaned in a while. I immediately
unpacked my luggage to take a nap because I was still tired because I
got to sleep late last night. My mom told me she was going to take a
quick hike with her two friends and my little sister. My little sister
is ten years old. She has black straight hair. She’s three inches taller
than me, and she is always making fun of that.
While my mom, my little sister, and my mom’s two friends went hiking, my
sister and I stayed in the cabin and relaxed. Then we got bored, but
there was no signal or TV.
After a while of being bored I took a long nap and when I woke up it was
morning. My mom, my sister, and I decided to take a walk. I noticed this
beehive with all these spider webs around it. I tried to hit it once but
then I saw a bunch of bees coming so I left it alone. Then we noticed a
rusty old cabin. Then, all of a sudden, we heard a newscast say that a
big storm was coming.
So my mom was trying to get everybody to pack quickly so on our way home
it won’t be that dangerous. We packed all night and left right away in
the morning. On our way home black clouds were taking over the sun. Then
all of a sudden rain started pouring like cats and dogs. At one point
this tree was inches away from hitting us. Although we were still
frightened about the tree almost falling on us, we got home safe and
sound. Then out of nowhere, my smaller sister, Michelle, screamed out
“Alfonso I found your gold chain!”
I ran to find my little sister. She was in the bathroom. Then I
remembered I must have left it in the bathroom when I was taking a
shower. I realized that I had spent all my spring break wondering where
my chain was. I was pretty joyful that I found my chain, but next time
I’ll be more responsible and won't make my next spring break horrible.
