An amazing vacation

Right after Christmas, we went on a trip, most people might call it a vacation , but I call it a trip because we drive in stormy weather, and Eva isn't with me! We went to see our Grandparents, my Aunt, and my other Aunt and Uncle, and my two cousins, in Alberta. I didn't want to say the city we stayed at, but it's not Calgary, neither Edmonton. So it is a smaller place, a beautiful wonderful place
. The place where I live, is sooo cold, and the driving weather was so bad, that for a couple of hours we couldn't see three feet in front of us because of the snow, and there was crazy wind.
     When we stopped in Moose Jaw, we stayed at this beautiful bed and breakfast. Dad and I went to see the tunnels of Moose Jaw, and we went on the one about Al Capone ( I've been on it before) Because it was their last tour of the day, dad and I were the only people on the tour!
     It was soo fun. You see, this isn't just a bla bla tour .. this is a gun they used back then, Al Capone was a bad guy who had a scar on his left cheek, this is bla blba bla... These tours take you back in time, and they have real actors in the tour, and everything is timed, so we have to move at a special time. After the amazing tour, we went to a fancy restaurant that dad and mom used to go to when they lived in Moose Jaw. The food was amazing, and we had a great time.
    When we got to our Grandparents, we did lots of fun stuff. We did Christmas, and a Christmas dinner, and I loved everything I got, and I hope everyone liked what I made them. When we went swimming I went off the high high board for the first time, and dad said I did it in perfect form!
Then my uncle, dad and two cousins and I did a contest of who could hold their breath under water the longest. I beat my two cousins, my dad AND my uncle! I can hold my breath for one minute and forty seconds. That doesn't seem THAT long, but it is very hard, and you have to concentrate a lot on holding your breath.
I had a great time, and it was wonderful to see my family again.
