Last night, we arrived at the Lihue airport at 6:00 pm! It was quite an excitement for all of us! We took one last group photo before we headed to our gate! That was the goodbyes to our parents!....except mines. We boarded our first airlines from California, and I was sitting by my mom and Isabel! All the way in the front! Most of the people fell asleep on the plane ride....so, you know what that means!? PICTURE TIME!!! I didn't get much sleep though. Maybe like 20 minutes of resting time, but I couldn't fall asleep! Isa and I read our books on the plane, and then we just rested after that.
For our second flight, after we landed in California, it was 4:50....AM! We had to wait a while before our next flight to Florida, so we all got something to eat for breakfast. I didn't buy anything, but I had some of my mom's yogurt. Mr. M handed out the scavenger hunt sheets, so the other teams better watch out! I'm excited to go hunting for all the items! This will be an exciting activity! Especially since my mom has to take a picture with a "hottie" for one of the items! Some things will be quite challenging, such as, getting a receipt for exactly $20.14!!! We then played some card games, just to kill time, and well, what can I say? I am a true expert at Egyptian War! Haha just kidding, but it was really fun playing! Who'd ever thought that we'd have so much fun just playing cards? It was finally time to board the plane! I watched two movies: Catching Fire, and Pitch Perfect! I got no sleep on that ride....but it was relaxing! When we finally reached Florida, I was super excited! We got to choose our van, and it is a really nice one too! When we got in the van, I facetimed my sister! (She got permission to, of course) I got to say "hi" to everyone in her class! And Taegan's mom got to say "hi" to Taegan! It was pretty cool! They took me around at recess to say hi to everyone! I really had fun! I showed them what Florida looked like, and it actually looks a lot like the island of Kauai!
We dropped off all our luggage at the house which took us a while to find. The houses were really nice! It's like a resort almost! It's sad that we can't use the pool, but we can do other things rather than play in a hole filled with liquid that makes your skin wrinkle.... Anyways, after that, we went out to eat dinner! We were trying to find a place called Golden Corral, which took us over and hour to find! Everyone got there way before we did, and we had to call a bunch of people to ask for help! We kept on missing turns and going on for miles in the wrong direction! Finally, we got to the place, and we are delicious food! I had Mexican rice with pulled pork and Mac and cheese! It was really good. We then went to Target. I was in the car with Marlena's group. It was a fun ride! We were jamming out the whole way! Even Kelli's mom was too! I bought a few things for my sister and I, so that was good that we went there. I think this day was pretty good for a first day. But, hopefully tomorrow, we will have even more fun at the Amway Center!
Did I mention about the legit STN app??? It is almost like an Instagram, but only for STN! It is super super cool, and fun! People are getting quite competitive about making it to number one on the leaderboard! Anyway, that's it for today's update! See you tomorrow!
