1999 Summer Vacation
are letters Jennifer wrote to her friend Kaitlin while we were on vacation
in the summer of
1999. They have been reproduced as they were written. Clicking on a date will
take you to an image of the actual letter.)
Have you got the other letter I sent you yet? If you did, did you
like the Idea of being penpals, if not I guess we could call each other
every once in a while. If you did not get the letter, all it really
said was I missed you very very much and talked about being penpals.
Anyway why I'm writing this is because I'm going on vacation and I'm going
to write what I do Every day, this is the first day though. I really
do miss you very very verree-yyyy much!! I hope to see you
Today I'm going to start at the beginning and go to the
end. So first I got up or maybe I guess my dad woke me
up. Then I went to the lobby and ate my free
breakfast! Then we went to the world of coke.
It was neat. After that we ate at Jonny rocket's.
Then we went to the Science center. Then shopped. Ate at
a pizza place that was yummy!! Then went back to the
Hotel. Oh ya I forgot to tell you where we are! well we
are at, in Atlanta Georgia. Sorry! We are going to see
my cousins monday ya!! Well by!!
Today we ate are free breakfast. Then we went
to Stone mountain that had a cool carving of three
people who fought for the south boo! That was
Civil war. That was the war about having slaves
and not having slaves also about the us splitting up the
north won and thats how the United States became
United. We went on a boat ride. We
took the sky way up to the top of the mountain then we
walked all the way down the mountain!!! But my mom
twisted her knee!! We went miniatre golfing.
My dad won I came in last.
Today I went to six flags which is a Theme park. That is
the place that I told you I'd see my cousins but they didn't come
because it was raining too hard and because they live there.
Any way I rode lots of rides. My dad was so excited about the
batman ride. I was too small to ride. But it was
both my mom and dads favorite ride. I like one kind that I had
never rode before it went like this it went forward and then backward in the same loop
like this then in the
same loop you go backward It was my first time I went in
a backward loop. My favorite show was a gun fight show.
Today we're going to go to chattanooga and we're going to
stay in a train!!! Wow cool ha? It's the one I
sent you the postcard of. I was only about two hours
away from where we were. When we got here this is what
we did, first we went to ruby falls which is a cave that has a
beautiful waterfall in the cave. Next we went to lookout
mountain that has a incline railway. It is the steepest
one there is in the world! last we went to rock
city. It had pretty garden it also had a cave that led
you to I think even a more beautiful that ruby falls.
Today we went to the aquarium. They had beuituiful
fish and some very ugly. There were some pretty some not
as pretty and some very very neat jellyfish!! My
faivorite one was the cool moon jellyfish. Dads
faivorite kind was not really a jellyfish but it was cool I

like. It had had lights running down its, you know those
stringy things. Moms was a very ugly one! Next we

some side trips on the way there though. The first stop
was the alpine slide it was a sled sort of. It was on
top of a mountain. It had lot, I mean a lot of
slopes. The next stop is a one my parents wanted to
do. I had no interest in doing it. It was some

whiskey. I say it was very very very very very very very
