Today, was pretty long. We (Me, mom, and Robert) are driving to Texas to our house in Nocona. We left our house at 9:15, and the time before that is known as the dark side of vacationing. We got on the road, and we just drove. Our first stop was at a Walmart to see if they had a plug for my TV in the car. They didn’t, so we also stopped at Target. They didn’t have it either. We continued our journey and I just watched TV on Robert’s TV. We watched Star Wars I, II, and III. I love Star Wars.
We continued our journey and we got to stop at Granny and P-Paws house (my other grandparents), and we got to see them. Their dog Holly was so happy to see me, and so was Toby. Granny said she hadn’t seen Holly that excited before. I got to show them my rifle and flags for color guard, but it was really windy, so I mostly did Rifle. They were really impressed. I also got to tell the that I am now apart of the NSHSS. It was especially impressive to then since my family isn’t known for their grades. We only stayed for about 45 minutes until we left.
Our next stop was at a Cracker Barrel for dinner. I has 2 scrambled eggs, 3 pieces of Bacon, and 2 biscuits with Gravy. It was pretty good, I had forgotten how cheap it was to eat there compared to our restaurants in the DC area. We entered Tennessee, and the first thing we did was come to check in at the hotel were staying at. When we left, we explored Pigeon Forge, TN, and we stopped at a go kart place. I went on my first go kart today, guys! It was really fun! I went on it again with my brother, then we walked down to a gift shop. I was disgusted with the amount of confederate flags and sex stickers/shirts that were in there. My brother and I both got black teddy bears. I named mine Coal. get it, get it? like black coal, and were in the mountains… No? Anyone? ok…. Then we went on to “The Island”, and I saw another Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. (The first I saw was at Key West). I also found really cool rainbow 3D glasses on the ground. I’m not a hoarder, I just collect a bunch of trash. Finally on our way back to the hotel, Robert and I stopped at a Baskin Robbins. He had a Cotten Candy, and I had a Chocolate Fudge.
I’m tired, and its 12:36 AM so that means it’s mom’s birthday. Night, ya’ll
