Memories With Friends



Friends are always ready for a good time

Good friends are like stars, you don’t always see them, but you know they are there



Good friends always manage to keep me away from boredom. Sometimes best friends can be family, one of my best friends is my cousin Griffin. Griffin and me are always there for each other, but on a less serious note, we sure know how to have a good time. We are are like two peas in a pod, we have a very similar personality and sense of humor. We are like the perfect joke creators when around each other. It was this weekend, Easter weekend. The whole family was at our family house in New Hampshire so we could keep our tradition of celebrating Easter together. Right from the moment when I arrived and saw my cousins and family I knew this was going to be an awesome weekend. After greeting my family, I went around and looked for Griffin who is one of my cousins. He was at what we call the dog house, it is basically a smaller house across the driveway from the main house. I saw him and ran over and said hi. We went to the main house and started to mess around. This weekend was going to be great. After many hours of messing around, telling jokes, painting eggs, playing outside, and having fun it started to get late. We went up into the loft And chilled for a long time, messing around and laughing so much my stomach started hurting. As it got really late and most people were asleep we went into our room. We were not tired so we decided we would do something. We wanted to watch a scary movie and we chose to watch IT. We couldn’t find the movie anywhere for free so we decided to go on YouTube and watch these scary short films, like very short movies. After the first one, we started getting a little creeped out and we got a little scared because we were in the bottom bunk of a bunk bed in the corner of a very dark room. We made a fort by attaching blankets to the corners of the bunk and had our own little capsule. We watched countless amounts of those scary videos. It started to get very late and we were tired. We put a show on his computer and laid there half asleep. I noticed that Griffin was asleep so I closed the computer and went over to my bed. That was a very good night. This whole weekend was amazing. On Sunday, after the scary movie night, we had Easter egg hunts and ate a whole lot of candy. I had so much fun. I wish times like these could last forever, but they can’t. This weekend I laughed so much that I might be all out of laughs for the week. As expected, we all had to leave eventually and parted ways back to our homes. This weekend was so much fun and I shared some great moments with one of my best friends who happens to also be my cousin. Although I did not get much sleep and am now very tired because of it, it was all worth it in the end. I always look forward to family weekends in New Hampshire for moments like these. I have made some great memories with my friends and it is important to spend time with them. Sometimes it can take my mind off the struggles in life.
