My 7th birthday!

On my 7th birthday my family and I were planning on going up north to my cottage to celebrate it because my birthday is in the summer. We packed in our bags tightly in the trunkk of our van and started off to the lake.

It takes about 1 hour and 1/2 to get there and my dad had to stop for gas before we got on to the high way. We saw a speedway and decided to stop here before we started the long trip. We pulled i nto the turn lane and were about to turn when the light turned to red in a  flash. My dad instantly reacted and stated to to slow down. We were in relief to no that we didnt go through it and get hit. But, apparently the guy behind us didn’t see it and drilled our back bumper! I sreamed with shock and fear and was shaking like crazy!

We pulled on the side of the road to look at the damage and our back bumper had fallen off! The guy that hit us ahd stopped besides us and had helped us and said sorry. And while all I was thinking was that my birthday was ruined!
