This Spring break I had expectations and realities. One reality was that some of my favorite cousins were taking their time to drive down to Florida. I had seen them during Winter break, but since I got used to them being so close, it was hard to leave them. The cousins left Indiana last Saturday and they arrived in Florida around noon on Sunday. The cousins arrived and I gave them all big hugs, even their puppy, Zeva. I was ecstatic to see them, but especially my favorite cousin, the youngest in her family, and super cool at twelve years old, Trinity. She is my favorite cousin because she doesn’t care if it’s too hot or cold, isn’t picky when it comes to food and is very helpful. Her older sister, Isabelle, is the complete opposite of Trinity, but she can be funny once in a while. My least favorite cousin that visited, Ethan, couldn’t take his eyes off his electronic devices, except when he munched on snacks or bullied the other kids. The rest of the day was followed by watching movies and playing video games. The next day came and we were packing for the beach! I was so exited because I wanted to play with my family, but there wasn’t enough space on our dad’s boat. There were eight seats, but nine people. Our mom was extremely generous and offered to stay behind. We had everything loaded on the boat when my mom asked for the keys for our outdoor bins. We were short 1 life jacket. “Where was the car?” you might ask, well it was in Macdill, forty-five minutes to an hour each way from Bay Vista, where we were loading up at. Thea volunteered to stay behind which was very nice of her to skip out on a day at the beach. We left to travel to an island called Beer can Island. The waves were HUGE and kept splashing the people who were on the back of the boat. It wasn’t as much fun as I would have hoped because the cousins were all on their electronic devices and I didn’t have my sister to play with. We spent 5 hours at the beach before heading back our house. The next day we traveled to Boyd Hill and gazed at wild alligators and trudged on many paths. The following morning we were off to present the beautiful of town Tarpon Springs to our cousins. We all spied sponges of many shapes and sizes then we proceeded back home where we all rested peacefully. In no time all the cousins had to travel back home, but I felt fine with that. I had enough of the cousins for a while and I was definitely ready to kick back and relax.
