Cowardice turned into Bravery

It was the best day of my miserable life. My family and i were finally going to go to Jamberoo! I couldn't wait. When we got there we went straight to the jumping place.

I was waiting in line with my dad. When it was his turn, he looked down but was too scared to jump. The boys behind me were jeering. My dad took one deeeeeeep breath...and...shook his head and stood to the side.

So i jumped but i never knew that the water was so deep. I began struggling in the water 'till my dad pushed in and jumped. He had saved me!

When we got safely on land. My dad wanted to jump again. But this time, i didn't bother going with him.

When he got back (or so i thought) i hugged him and it turned out to be someone else. Embarrassing! But there was more.

My little sis was running but she was looking where she was going. With a boing, she bumped into the pot belly of a gigantic man. She stared up and he was holding an ice cream. It fell on my sis's head and she began crying and shouting monster. The man looked dumbly at her.

He turned out to be a soft statue. But with and ice cream. Weird! But it was a funny day.

Either way, I look forward to the next trip to Jamberoo!
