USS Lexington, by Jack
On Saturday, Dad and I went to the USS Lexington, which is an aircraft carrier in Corpus Christi. First, we put our stuff in the bedroom. It only had three layered bunk beds, and I was going to get the bottom one but then I got the top one on the other side. Then we toured the ship. We went up to the planes. The most interesting thing was the plane that my dad flew, which was an A6. First we had to move our stuff to a different bedroom, because the A/C was broken in the bedroom our stuff was already in. Then we ate dinner. We ate in the kitchen. There was two rooms to eat in. Me and dad ate in the second room, there was a lot of tables. We had penne pasta with spaghetti sauce. After dinner they had ghost stories but I didn't go. We were brushing our teeth getting ready for bed. In the morning we had breakfast in the same place we had dinner. We had breakfast tacos, donuts, an apple, and there was cereal but I didn't eat any. After breakfast we went to the gift shop but dad forgot his wallet. So then we went to go get his wallet but then we had stuff to do so I had to wait. When we finally went, I got an aircraft carrier plane. After we left the ship, dad & I went to the beach and saw his childhood home, then went home.
