Happy Independence Day, the day we celebrate our freedom with fireworks, hotdogs, watermelon, swimming, and spending time with the fam.
No matter if your in Alaska or Rhode Island, you most likely love Forth of July. I know I do, and I live in the depths of Lousiana, where Aligators and Crawfish roam around and- yeah okay, I’ll stop.
Anyway, I’ll just tell you what I did for Forth of July!
(Also, I know this is late, mostly because my Scheduling glitched!)
I woke up at 9:30, and I ate breakfast, and I talked to my Mom about plans. A little while later, I took a bath. Then I helped get stuff together for the fam, because we were going to my Mawmaw and Pawpaw’s camp, which is on a lake a couple miles from us.
Me and Mom then went to the grocery store, where we bought snacks and a Birthday cake. (We wandered the aisles for a while to find the Little Debbie’s, but then I realized they must be on the end of an Aisle. I was right.)
Then when we got home, we packed up and left!
When we got to the camp, we got all the stuff out of the truck, (I like, ran. LOL, 6 kids and a baby is not my choice of travel) and I went into the camp to say hello to everyone.
Except they were all down the pier, which is like, 120 feet long? It looks longer and feels longer than it actually feels, but trust me, its a long way down, and you can’t run.
So there I go. Traveling down the pier. One step at a time. I notice pink stuff every where, but I think nothing of it.
I finally get there, and I can say hello to everyone! It’s kind of cool, in the temperature way. I decide to go back down and help Mom carry in bags.
La de da de da, down the pier we go again.
“Are you going to fish?” I hear my Pawpaw say.
“Oh I don’t know, maybe!” I say, but the answer is really no. But if I say that he’ll look at me like I went to China just to watch TV.
I reach the cabin, and I help unload. I grab my bag that I brought (With books in it) down to the pier. I get out a chair to read, and I don’t sit down. Why? There’s a spider on the chair. I do not want to sacrifice the book I was reading so I just kind of sat there. Waiting. until finally I decided just to shake the chair. The spider is missing. The spider is probably still on the chair. I bring the chair to the middle of the pier, where all the adults usually are.
I snap it with a rag and it falls off. Victory. I start to read. Everyone comes down to the pier now. About 30 minutes later, I go back down to camp. (I have a bad reputation for not being able to decide where to go)
As I am happily walking back, I see it. A snake (I typed Snack on accident lol), on the pier. In a panic, I decide to jump off of the pier and unto the muddy ground. Now I am in a snake infested area. I can’t move because there is muddy all around me, so I go back unto the pier, a couple feet away from the snake, and run back to tell everyone about it.
“Oh okay.” They all say.
Then my five- excuse me, six, year old cousin and my sister walk back down the pier, ignoring me and what I say.
They make it. With no snake in their path. I walk back down the pier too, running past where the snake was.
My Pawpaw say me and told me not to run. I said Yes Sir, even though I could’ve said,
“BUT THE SNAKEEEEEE!!!”
Anyway, I make it into the camp, tell my Mom and my Aunt, and they where a lot more sympathetic. I eat a snack.
Before I know it, it’s lunch time. I don’t bring up the snake. Because they didn’t care last time.
Pretty much nothing interesting happened after that, so lets skip to about Four O’ clock. My cousin says, “Let’s catch you a fish.”
You see, I can’t fish. Hold up, let me rephrase that, I can, I know how, but Fish do not like to bite my hook.
So I put my pole in the water and wait.
No fish. I change fishing spots. No fish. I go everywhere, no fish.
I get tired of this, so I go into the camp to rest.
The rest is boring, so I’ll spare you the details. We go home, we eat jambalaya, and I take a bath. When I get out, I get on my computer and search up the pink stuff on the trees.
Turns out, it was snail eggs, pink and poisonous snail eggs.
SO, what did you do for Forth of July? Do you like to fish? Have you ever had a close encounter with a snake? Comment below!
