FC: My Camping Adventure | By: Tatum Plonsky Ed 302
1: It is our last day of school and I am so excited. Tomorrow morning my family and I are going on a camping trip.
2: When I got home from school it was time to pack. We needed four of everything because that's how many people there are in my family.
3: To get where we were going we had to drive a long distance from our house.
4: When we arrived we climbed up a big mountain. Finally we reached the top, and we began to set up our tent.
5: The first day while we were there, our Dad took us on a fishing trip. That was my favorite part.
6: The second day we went for a hike around the mountains. Up and down, and left and right we went. I was super tired that night.
7: The third night we were there we had a campfire. We roasted marshmallows to make smores. The other ingredients in smores are chocolate and graham crackers.
8: The next morning, on our last day, it was overcast. We had to stay in our tent.
9: Later on in the day the sun decided to come out. We played catch and then got all of our things packed up and ready to leave.
10: After driving in the car for a long time, we finally saw the road sign for the street to our house.
