The day when you get to be with the family, eat all you want, and have fun with
everyone. You and your family go to your grandparent's house and meet up with the
rest of the family. When you get there the food is ready and you get greeted. It's
the Thanksgiving everyone wants. Well let me tell you mine! XD So i wake up 6:45 am
to get ready to go to New York, pack my bags, get dressed, and we were out the door.
The car ride took about 2 hours and we made the Thanksgiving Parade! Just to let you
know it was AMAZING! So many Celebraties, balloons, and floats! It was the best one
I've been to and we had the best view! After the parade we went to my Grandma's house
and we found all the food ready everyone got to her house when we did. OH BOY was
there a loud party going on! All the cousins ate together and all the adults ate
together. Now the funnest part of the day comes along! Get ready, hold on tight, and
enjoy the story!
There are 12 of us cousins (including me). Now 6 of us plus my cousin's
roomate came shopping with us around Stienway; the oldest 20 and the youngest 10. So
we got bored walking around the same place and went to NYC, Manhatten! Two of us paid
for the train ticket and the rest of us smooshed together and walked through! Got on
the train and explored the Wonders of Times Square. We went everywhere! Then Silvia's
mom called her cell phone and told us to get back! We all were calm and started for
the subway again! We hopped the ticket scanner and waited for the train to come. The
N train came along and we all got on. But it wasn't our train. We got off the next
stop and we all were looking for the right train. We were there for like ten more
minuetes and our parents were getting worried. We were looking for a map and we
couldn't find one. Now all we had to do was wait for the next N train and ask one of
the train drivers. (don't know what you call them XD) We saw the N train and we
didn't even ask we saw the schedual and realized that it was the right train. It was
so wierd the train before wasn't like this one, meaning it didn't have the same
stops. We were so confused, but we were happy that we finally were going home! The
fear doesn't end here: now we're on the train and everysingle parent are calling
Silvia, Steve (she), and I. What do we do? Pick up the phone and tell them that we're
okay and we're okay! We got off the train and we go home with everyone worried and
they give us all big hugs and kisses. HAH! The story we told them was that we went
shopping a little bit in Stienway and then went to the closest Park! LOL! I've never
seen everyone have a great time! IT WAS SOO FUN!
