My Poconos Trip
Me and my family went to Poconos for the weekend and it was a blast! We went ice skating, to the pool, the arcade and went sight seeing! Our family wasn’t the only family that was there. There was a family friend of my dad’s. Not a lot of people know of the place but it’s called Skytop Lodge. The place is on a mountain and it breath taking!
My favorite thing, me and my friend did was ice skating. We weren’t that good and wouldn’t take our hands off the wall! After a while we got the hang of it and were ice walking, not ice skating. We weren’t good enough to ice skate. We fell very often, but that’s how you learn, right? Ice skating can be a tough sport, trust me, I know. There wasn’t just ice skating, there was a lounge that where you could drink hot cocoa. Sometimes it doesn't take a long time to learn hot to ice skate but for me and my friend it takes forever. I really enjoyed ice skating!
I loved going to the arcade with my friends. We played ping pong, Dance Dance Revolution, Pac Man, racing, mini golf and me and my friend even took pictures in the photo booth! The best part was that we were by our self! Of course our parents were near but just not with us. We spent half the trip in the arcade playing. Our parents had given us the money and we converted that money into change. The point is that we had the best time ever!
The last thing I did in Poconos was going to the pool. I LOVE going to the pool! Whenever I go to a hotel or resort, I always go to the pool! Me and my friend went to the pool five times in a three day trip. The pool in the hotel was HUGE! It went to 9 and a half feet! I never went to a pool that went that long. I swam up to seven feet, and was to scared to go in 9 feet while my friend was in 5 feet. I made laps but didn’t go to the end. I had a friend that was younger than me. She was about 6 years old. We were teaching her how to swim. That was really fun because I never taught anyone how to swim.
Going to Poconos and doing all the activities, was a real experience. I was having the best time of my life. I look forward going there again.
