It was an early flight from Shannon airport so we had to leave home early. I was very excited to be going on a trip to America. I had my bags packed and ready to go. Our taxi arrived at 10 o’ clock.  At about 12 o’clock we got to the airport .Before we left to go my mom said that we should get something to eat, so we went to KFC.

At 1 o clock we got on the plane to go to America. I was nervous because it was my first time going on a plane and I was afraid that we would crash. But after five minutes in the plane I settled down. We arrived early in the morning and we got into another taxi so we could get to our hotel. When I walked in it looked amazing.  The receptionist was very kind and the rooms were as clean as a whistle. The pool looked beautiful.  Also the food was delicious. Then my dad and I went for a swim. After a while my dad said, in his deep voice, that he could swim in the deep end but then he fell into the water and started to drown! Then I jumped in the water and I saved him. We decided that we would go back to the bedroom.

The next day we went shopping and bought some new clothes for my mom and I. It took ages for her to leave the shop because she was looking at a dress for over an hour. After a while my mom asked would I like to go to the cinema to see The Hunger Games part 2. I was delighted with this idea. My mom was crying throughout the entire movie so it was quite hard to hear what they were saying. After the movie my mom had to go and get makeup because she said that she looks terrible without it, although I thought she looked beautiful.

The next day I said it was my turn to get what I wanted. So we all went to a sports and games store and I bought a Man city jersey. I also bought two games for my ps4. When we went home I thanked my mom and my dad for my jersey and games.

The next day I was very upset because we were going back to Ireland.  We packed our bag and then we heard our taxi beep the horn. We rushed out the door and put our bags in the back.  When we got to the airport it didn’t take us long to get on the plane.

When we got home I could not wait to play with my friends with my new games and sleep in my bed and play with my new phone. In my opinion it was the best holiday I had ever had in my life and I would love to go back there again.
