Going to the airport

My name's Nick. Last summer I went on holiday with my sister, Kim, and my parents. We got up early in the morning because we were going by plane. We packed our suitcases the night before. When Dad woke me up I was very tired, and I didn't eat any breakfast because I wasn't hungry.

Then we all got in the car and dad started to drive to the airport. It was very foggy and we couldn't see the road at all. Suddenly, there was a loud noise as Dad hit the car in front of us. We weren't going fast so it wasn't a bad accident but the man in the other car was very angry and shouted at Dad. I was scared and my sister started crying. The man asked for our address and Dad wrote it down for him on some paper. Then Dad started driving again, very slowly this time.

When we got to the airport we were late and Mum said "We've missed the plane now!" She was very angry too. Poor Dad! But when we got inside the airport Mum found that our plane was still there. She was happier then. So we went to the airport café and waited to go on our holiday. And it was the best holiday ever!
