The Trip

Can I have some goldfish? I asked my mom as we drove around through the middle of nowhere. We had been driving around for about 5 or 6 hours. We were on our way to Texas to visit our grandma and grandpa and aunts and uncles and cousins. But it was a 2 day drive. We had left at 4 in the morning so we could get a good start and not arrive late. We arrived in Alburqurque where my other grandma and grandpa live, and stayed there for a couple of days. And then we got back in the car at 5 in the morning and set off for Texas. At 4pm we finally arrived at my grandma and granpa's house. I hadn't seen my grandma for about a year and a half. But my grandpa came to visit just a few months ago. My great grandma lives with my grandma and grandpa because she is old and can't take care of herself. This really nice woman named Loupe takes care of her and stays with her all the time. Loupe taught me hows to play hand and foot and slapjack.
My uncle Joe and my aunt Jessica live on a farm on about an hours drive from grandma and grandpa. This post is being made at their house. They have tons of animals, goats, sheeps, chickens, cats, dogs, and other stuff. Me and uncle Joe went to go shoot a rabbit a couple of days ago, and on the way home we saw an armadillo. Joe said that this was the second time he had ever seen an armadillo at this farm. I tried to persuade him to shoot it so we could show it to Jessica, but he said: "who wants a dead armadillo with a hole in it? You guys are blood thirsty, aren't you?" So I went up to catch the armadillo, but it ran under the chicken coop and changed into a ball. The next day I was playing around at their house and I went into the pen with the sheep. They had a ram in there, and I started petting it. Then the ram backed away, put his head down, and charged. I was right next to an electric fence that was only about a foot above the ground. So I ran toward it, jumped over it, and the ram slowed down. I also saw something very gross that day. One of their cats was eating a big fat rat, and I could see its organs.
I have some second cousins whose last name are Allreds. They are in a family of 8. The youngest is named Josie then Olivia, then Jack, then Emma, then Sam, and then the oldest is Will. The mom's name is Allison and the dad's Aaron. Me and Sam went on a bike ride in the forrest, and Sam showed me a big creek that went right through the forest. Me and him found a nice shallow spot and went swimming in it that night. The next day we brought Will, Jack, and Emma and showed them the nice place that we found, and then they went swimming with us. So here I am now, at Joe and Jessica's waiting for some other exciting things to happen while I am still on this trip.

Logan, this is your best blog post ever! Thanks to Aunt Jessica! You are so lucky to have so many awesome relatives to party with. I especially like the way you started this blog post by putting your readers right into the story. Very nice technique. So what did your Mom say when you asked for goldfish?
