BC: Visit California!
FC: A trip to California
1: In March of 2011, my family visited San Jose, California to attend my Mom's friends wedding.
3: On the morning of Friday, March18th my family had to wake up at 5:00 because we had to pick up a rental car. We had to wait for twenty minutes for our rental car to get out of the car wash. It was a red Chevy HHR. Finally we packed the important things into the rental car and started driving to San Jose California. It took fifteen hours to reach our destination. We went through two major cities, Phoenix and Los Angeles.We got stuck in traffic for one hour in Los Angeles.During the drive I read,played games on the Ipod, and enjoyed watching the landscape outside. When we reached my cousins place we carried all our big vacation bags to their apartment. When my uncle opened the door with the room key, though I knew about it,I was still disappointed that my cousin wasn't there as she was visiting India. Suddenly I felt very tired and I fell asleep on the guest bed.
5: The next day we went to the Santa Cruz beach. I found some interesting shells on the shore. When I took two steps in the water my feet began to feel cold. It felt so much better when I put my feet in the sand and made a sand castle.Finally after enjoying my time on the beach I changed into my dry cloths. As I got out of the changing room I started to feel hungry and so did my dad.So I helped my dad find a good restaurant. It was an Indian seafood restaurant. They had so much variety. We had a fish called Pomfret with salad, and lamb curry with bread called Dosa and Naan. Next we went to the apartment and dressed up in nice cloths and drove to my moms friends wedding.We had to drive on a long bridge over the bay to reach our destination.There was lots of yummy foods and desserts. We danced to some songs after dinner. After the wedding we went back to our apartment and I did my math homework and went to sleep.
7: On Sunday, March 20th we met several of my dads friends at Kids Castle. It is a pizza place with games and rides for kids. I had fun playing with my friends on the jumping castle and slide. I also played lots of games and won thirty tickets with which I bought some toys. My friend and I found something interesting. It was a play jungle! There were three slides and two net bridges. We were worried that the net bridges might fall. When our moms called us for lunch we both saw a cheese pizza and a vegetable pizza on the table. We both picked cheese pizza but when my mom gave me one slice of vegetable pizza, my mouth started to water.When everyone was done eating we all said good bye and they left. When I looked under the table I saw many gifts that my friends and my dads friends gave me. Next we went to my dads friends house.We all talked and ate a little snack. I also read a book about sea life and sea animals. When I got bored I played on my moms phone. First I played Brick Breakers and then I played Word mole. Then we went shopping and my uncle and I got an ice cream. We bought groceries and Holi colors from a Indian shop. After shopping we went back to my cousins place.
8: Next day, we were going to head back home. We packed our bags so we could start early next morning.
9: We got up early on Monday to go home as it was going to be another long drive and we wanted to reach home before we were sleepy. Before we left my uncle gave me a gift which was a beautiful dress. The drive back home was faster as we did not run into any traffic. I enjoyed my visit to San Jose and wish that we can visit again in near future.
