The Trip to Rhode Island
by Victoria - 3-25-08 -- Final Draft

One hot summer morning Katelynn was feeding her two horses Butch and Spot, her sister Beth was feeding the chickens, their dad Mike was feeding the cows, their mom Lori was in the house making lunch for everybody, and their Lassa, Lucky, was running around the house chasing his tail. Then when they all came in for lunch Katelynn said, ''I want to go to Rhode Island some day.'' '' Why?'' asked her mother.'' ''Because I want to visit the Blithe wood Mansion in Rhode Island'' After talking a while everybody wanted to go to Rhode Island and see the mansion. And since it was summer and there was no school, they decided to take a trip to Rhode Island. So they packed that night and left in their car the next morning.

Katelynn and Beth wanted to take Lucky but their dad said that he would be fine at his mom’s house. But Beth finally convinced him to let them take Lucky. They had to take a lot of food and water for him. They drove 10 hours to the Radisson Hotel near
Rhode Island. Katelynn and Beth were so happy that there was a swimming pool because they love to swim. Then they went to the Pub Brick and Alley restaurant to eat. Beth ate a lot of pizza. After a really long drive from Hannibal to Rhode Island, they finally got to the Blithe wood Mansion. It was old and tall and made of wood with two chimneys on each side. It was white and had red flowers all around.

They stayed there a long time. Everybody was outside most of the time so everybody got very thirsty and there was nothing to drink except the food that brought, witch was already gone. Lori's favorite part was the 12 gardens because she loves flowers. Katelynn and Beth's favorite part was how big it was, Mike's favorite part was that they were finally there after such a long ride there, and Lucky 's favorite part was that he got to get out and run after being crammed op in a small car for 20 hours. On their way back home they stayed in the same hotel that they did the first time and they ate at the same restaurant too. Some of the 10 hour ride home Lucky had his head out the window. And Beth and Katelynn slept most of the way.

Nobody would of got the idea to go to
Rhode Island if Katelynn hadn’t said something about it!
