My Childhood Memory I remember it like yesterday. I and my sister were waiting patiently for our father to come home from his latest long haul as a truck driver. He promised me and my sister that if we passed our grade, he would take us all to Carowinds theme park. The minutes felt like hours. It was the longest hour of my life. Then finally we heard the car door shut. I and my sister ran to the front door anxiously waiting for him to come in side. He opened the door and walked in.
We tried to read the expression on his face but of course he was looking down at our final report card of the school year. The suspense was killing us. Then he looked up. No words were spoken between us and our father. He just gave us a blank stare. I didn’t know what to think. I was scared to ask because I was so worried of the response. It was that moment when he said to us, “Well kids, pick out what you’re going to wear to Carowinds theme park this weekend. ” Excitement just jumped throughout my whole body.
We both ran over and gave him the biggest hug and ran to our rooms to pick out what we were going to bring with us. I was so excited for the next two days, I probably only got about 4 hours sleep. Then the day finally came. It was Saturday. It was the only time in my life I was happy to hear the alarm clock go off. Of course I was already awake for two hours before it actually went off, but I waited anyway. I jumped out of bed and ran into my sister’s room. We both then leaped into bed with our dad to wake him up.
He acted like he didn’t know what we were talking about, but we didn’t give him the chance to trick us. I and my sister then ran into our rooms picking out what we were going to take with us for two hour long car ride. I brought my game boy. I picked out my favorite outfit and ran to find my dad to ask when we were leaving. I was so relieved to see he was packing the car up with the cooler. My Grandmother bought all our favorite juices and made our favorite sandwiches for lunch.
