My favorite thing about spring is spring break. I like spring break because my family and I will go camping and hiking. We also love to fish. While we are on our hiking trip, we explore the plants and animals’ homes. Sometimes we might get poison ivy. My dad and I always play golf in Fillmore, too. Before we go to sleep while camping, we catch beautiful, glowing fireflies. We also cook delicious hot dogs for dinner, cook warm, delicious, melting marshmallows for s’mores, and before we go to sleep, everyone who’s in the tent gets to tell one or two frightening, scary stories. Also, while driving to go golfing we stop by to watch people dirt bike and I also go to my friends’ houses for sleepovers, and we play board games. That’s what I do during spring.

There are so many things I love to do in spring.
One of those things I like is going to the beach, but the best thing of all is playing with my friends. I can do so many things with them: playdates, sleepovers and so much more.

At the beach, I can build sand castles, play in the waves with my boogie board and play volleyball with my family and friends. I also like to go to theme parks like Knott’s Berry Farm. There are so many things you can do there. You can go to a gift shop, go on rides, watch shows and have breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are so many things you can do during spring.

My favorite thing about spring is that, during spring break, my best friend and I get to go to Disneyland.

When we first get there, the first ride we go on is Splash Mountain. My friend and I love to get wet.

The second ride we usually go on is Silly Symphony. It’s a ride that spins around so we can dry off because we don’t like to stay wet for long. We have a blast at Disneyland.

Then we come back to my house and normally play video games and handball, then at nighttime we have a sleepover.

During the night, before we go to bed, we usually play cards, Nintendo DSi and tell ghost stories, and then we go to sleep and dream about all the fun stuff we did that day.

I can’t wait until spring!

In spring, one of my favorite seasons, is my mom’s birthday. There are only smiles and hopes. The floating balloons go up in the air and fly up high. The music swirls and twists in our ears. Butterflies flap their wings and we smile in delight. The trees dance and jump while we eat and watch. That is one of the happiest moments of my life.

Another thing is my dad will come to America. He lives in Korea but comes to see us. We only talk through phone calls and emails. When he comes, my brother jumps on my dad and my mom hugs him tightly. I ask for a piggyback ride, and we walk to our car. As we ride, the car is filled with chattering voices.

These important things are moments of my life and these reasons are special to me. That is why I wrote them.

One of my favorite things about spring is that, when I look outside of my window, I can see the sun shining on the blooming flowers every morning. I also like to see the tall trees covering the pure blue sky. The fresh air surrounds me and has a cool breeze blowing across my face. I love spring break and resting on the beach and hearing the waves splashing on the shore. These are my favorite things about spring.

One of my favorite things about spring is the flowers that bloom. My mom has a flower garden in our front yard and backyard, and I love to see more flowers bloom when I come back from school everyday. Another thing I like about spring is that birds come more often than they do in winter. In my backyard, I have a bird feeder. My dad and I watch it every morning to see if birds come. About 10 or more come every morning. By the end of the day, all of the bird food is gone. Spring is my favorite season and I love everything about it.

My favorite thing about spring is spring break. Spring break is my favorite thing because it will have nice and warm weather. You also get to watch the pretty flowers bloom. The flowers smell so good that it smells like vanilla ice cream. The weather is great for the beach. The warm sand is best to lay on, but not too much or else you’ll get a sun burn without knowing. You can also build a sand castle. A beach is the best for spring break. That is why I like spring break the best in spring. Have a good spring!

One of my favorite things about spring is when the fully grown vegetables and fruits start going into stores. Some of my favorites are strawberries, oranges, carrots and broccoli.

Another thing I like about spring is when I go to the soft, warm and sandy beach. When I’m at the beach, I like surfing, digging holes and making sand castles.

The last thing I like about spring break is when I spend time with my funny and cool second-oldest brother, named Derek. Sometimes I try to beat him up, but he always wins. He likes war games and so do I. We are very similar.

One of my favorite things about spring is the sparkling raindrops falling from the sky. I like rain, as long as it doesn’t last for a long time. I also like that there’s no school or homework. I love the flowers and fruits that blossom and ripen. I like that I can relax or play with my dog, Cupcake. I especially like it when my friends are sleeping over, evening through we don’t really sleep. My favorite thing of all is when I can sit in my bed and read a book. I love spring!

Spring is about having fun and going on trips. It is also about playing sports. When it’s springtime, the flowers come up and the weather is warm. There’s also no school because it’s spring break

During spring, you could play baseball, you could go fishing, you could also wear shorts because it’s warm and the sun is up. And there’s no school, so you could go to the movies or maybe you can ride your bike. During spring, you could also go on trips to the mountains and go camping. You could relax and go to the lake and go fishing. You could also go to the park. Spring break is fun and you should enjoy it.

One of my favorite things about spring is the flowers blooming. Some people say blooming flowers aren’t as important as other things like Disneyland, but I think it’s great to have the flowers blooming. I love how the colors shine in the light. I also like picking the flowers to bring home and put them in a small pot.

What I like the best is the colors. My favorite color is blue, but there are very little blue flowers.

In spring, I think the flowers are beautiful. I also hope some people like the flowers blooming as much as I do.

One of my favorite things about spring is hiking. I love hiking because you can see many animals and lizards, but what is really cool about spring is seeing all the flowers bloom. I really wish I could go camping and I have before with my friends. But many other cool stuff happens in spring, like when animals hatch from their eggs. I think animals hatching from an egg is really neat in spring.

My favorite thing to do is April Fool’s Day because I can do a lot of pranks on family members, like my big brother. He is the one I prank the most on spring break. My brother is the hardest, but I like challenges. My brother pranks everyone the best.

When I prank him, he always pranks me back, so I always have to be careful with him. He is the pranking king of my family.

The other person I like to prank is my sister. She is the easiest person to prank, and I prank her like there is no tomorrow. That is how easy she is to prank.

She only pranked me 10 times, but I’ve pranked her 50 times. She is so gullible.

The other person is my little cousin. I’ve pranked him 300 times and he pranked me one time. I pranked him so many times, he lost count of how many times I pranked him.

My best prank on him was when he was going downstairs in his house. There is a little open spot and I put on a mask and hid under the stairs and popped up and screamed. He went back upstairs, scared.

The other family members not so much because they get mad when I prank them, so I’m not taking the chance.

Splish, splash. Rain is one of my favorite things in spring. I’m also interested in how the plants grow and how the snow melts. I also like how the birds and animals come back.

Baseball season is also one of my favorite things to see in spring. Spring break is one of them. I like to see the Angels and Dodgers play. I also go hunting or just go to the mall and buy Sesame Street shirts and hats. The last thing I like about spring is Easter.

Spring! In the spring, I go hiking where I live. My sister and I hike with my dad if he gets home early from work. When I hike in the spring, I sometimes go to the top of the hill and look at the beautiful flowers around me. Sometimes, I pick the flowers and put them in a little vase, then I give them to my mom. Another thing I do in the spring is shopping. I shop with my mom all the time. It’s so much fun.

One of my favorite things about spring is that I get to go to Disneyland. It is very fun because my 12-year-old sister Lauren and I always try to go on all the rides two times before leaving. My favorite thing is that we are pin traders and collectors, so we always try to stop and look in shops. One of our favorite things is going on water rides like Splash Mountain. I know that’s my favorite ride. I really do love going to Disneyland in spring. It’s the happiest place on Earth!

One of my favorite things about spring is the fresh spring air after it just rained and the shining rainbow glowing over my house.

Another thing I like about spring is planting beautiful tulips in my backyard and watching the tiny seedlings sprout before your eyes.

I love spring because it’s a season where plants grow.

One of my favorite things about spring is watching the different colored flowers blossom. I also like having sleepovers with my best friends over spring break. I practice my multiplication so I can pass the test. When my friends come over, we stay up later. My mom says it’s what everyone does, so it’s OK.

One of my favorite things about spring is watching the flowers bloom and the insects wandering around. It is wonderful to watch God’s creations growing and working. I watch the bees carrying nectar to their hives and grasshoppers jumping around.

My other favorite thing about spring is spring break. During spring break, I’ll go on vacation somewhere or go to Disneyland.

These are the two reasons why I like spring.

Spring is one of my favorite seasons. So many things are fun to do. These are a few of the many things I love.

I enjoy softball, spring break, Easter and the weather. I like to do these in the spring: I enjoy playing softball because it is one of my favorite sports, spring break is fun because it is homework free, Easter is fun because I love decorating, and finally I love the weather because some days it is sunny and other days it is raining. These are the reasons I love spring.

Clip clop! went the blue sandals I was trying on. They were perfect for spring. But there was one problem: I didn’t have a dress or a skirt, so that meant I had to go shopping.

So, when I went shopping, I had to look for something that I could wear for this warm weather. Something that would match something girly. But if I didn’t find the perfect thing, I would have to go to a different store. Then I would have to go to get some jewelry and then I would go home and put my stuff on and sit outside drinking cold water. That’s what I would do for spring. What would you do?

One of my favorite things about spring is walking in the park with my family and seeing the flowers bloom and the leaves change colors. One of my other favorite things about spring is spring break. I love playing Wii with my sister and parents. I love lots of things, but my favorite is being with my family. That’s what I love about spring.

One of my favorite things about spring is that I get to see the flowers bloom at the park. Another favorite thing I like about spring is that I can go running every single morning and play with my dog, Bella.

My most favorite thing about spring is that I get to spend time with my family.

One of my favorite things about spring is my birthday. On my birthday, I either go to Disneyland or just stay home and have a party. At Disneyland, I go on all the huge rides. My favorite ride is Splash Mountain. At home, I just invite some friends over and play games.

Another thing I like to do is lay on the beautiful green grass. The green grass feels like a very soft blanket.

One of my favorite things about spring is that I get to go to Disneyland. Not only that, but I get to go on a lot of the exciting rides.

Another favorite thing I like to do in spring is go to the arcade and play for a very long time.
Last but not least, I like to go over to my friends’ houses and they come to my house.

What do you like to do for spring? Well, come on and I’ll tell you what I like to do for spring. I like to spend time with my family, go to buy lunch and eat it on the grass in the backyard. I also like to go to parties and play with my friends. I usually play soccer, ride motorcycles or ride bikes when I’m with my friends. I also like to go to the park.

My favorite thing in spring is spring vacation. It is also my brother’s and my birthday. There is rain and lots of ripe fruits. We can celebrate Easter. Over spring vacation, I can play on my PS3. I can also play with my friend.
