Mexico was a blast! Wait, let me start at the beginning. My Mom and Dad were going on their anniversary trip, so I stayed with my Grandma and Grandpa. We ended up going to Yuma, Arizona and Mexico.

|When I was packed and ready to go on the trip, Grandpa surprised me with a little portable DVD player. Luckily I brought movies so I had something I liked to watch in the car. Grandma asked if I wanted to eat breakfast in Nevada, lunch in California, and dinner in Arizona. It was funny, but of course I said “yes”.
For breakfast in Boulder City, Nevada I had my favorite! Eggo waffles. Next stop, Needles, California, where we stopped for lunch at McDonald’s and I had a quarter pounder with cheese. Next stop, Yuma, Arizona, where we stopped for dinner at an Italian restaurant and I had pizza. After dinner, we settled in our hotel room then headed for the pool. When I got in it was freezing, but I swam anyway! Heading back to our room, we saw one of Grandpa’s friends and they chatted a while. Grandma and I went back to the room and turned on the TV. I was jumping on the bed.
The next morning we went out for breakfast. Grandpa and his friend went golfing and Grandma and I went shopping by the mall right next to our hotel. We had a whole lot of fun. We had lunch with Grandpa’s other friends that live in Yuma, Mr. and Mrs. L. After that we all went swimming in Mr. and Mrs. L’s pool. When we all went back to the room, Grandpa played cards with Mr. and Mrs. L and Grandma and I watched TV. I was jumping on the bed again.
The next day Grandma and I went to Mexico with Mr. and Mrs. L. When we got to the border it was different because we couldn’t park in Mexico. We had to park in the United States and then walk across the border. When we finally got to the fun part, shopping, I bought a necklace and a bracelet but the bracelet was broken so I was a bit mad. But I fixed it. When we were done shopping in Mexico, we went back to the room and packed our suitcases for home. Mexico was a great time and I would love to go back.
