One day when I was 5 my family decided we were going on a trip. The trip was to Mount Rushmore. Which is in South Dakota and we were living in Colorado.
The car ride to get there took about 16 to 17 hours. Which for my 5 year old self that was a very long and boring car ride. I was also squished between my sister Elli and my brother Austin. So I was not happy.
When we finally arrived at the camp ground my whole family was there. My favorite cousin (at the time) came running toward me and gave me the biggest hug. My cousins name was Shelby and she had a little brother named Kacin which he is a big part of the story very soon.
A few days after we got to the mountains my family decides to just go drive around. While driving around we found a water park with this really fun trampoline pillow thing. Obliviously Shelby, Austin, and I all had to check it out. But we didn't know we were supposed to be leaving.
Luckily my auntie was still there changing my cousin Kacin''s diaper. My auntie didn't even know we were still there! They actually forgot about us. After learning that they forgot bout us, we all loaded up in my aunts car and started heading back to the camp site.
When we got back to the camp site my parents didn't even realize we weren't there. But that's okay because we all had a blast up there. Definitely one of the best vacations ever. That was the time I was left at Mount Rushmore.
