A Snowy Adventure

One winter, my cousin and I were outside making snow forts. My parents and my aunt were out shopping to get groceries and my uncle was asleep upstairs in his room. Suddenly, it started to snow, first it was just a little. But then it started to pour heavily.

So, we put the finishing touches to our forts and headed back inside. Right when I opened the sliding glass door, my cousin fell down on the slippery wooden stairs. I let go of the door, my worst mistake-you see. The door locks automatically but I had put a rock, right next to the door so it wouldn't close. But while I was running to my cousin's aid I'd accidentally kicked the rock.

So now, my cousin and I were locked outside. Luckily the snowing had stopped but unfortunately it started to get really windy. It pierced my skin like daggers. Good thing we had a coat on. First we started to call my uncle, but he was sleeping soundly - and by soundly, I mean sleep-through-a- tornado-soundly. It was of no use.

Then I tried to climb the fence but it didn't work because the fence was slippery and six feet high. So, I did what the any genius person would do - climbed up to my tree house and brainstormed some ideas on ways to get out. At one point, I was seriously considering jumping out of the tree house and somehow getting on the other side. Then I realized, I could use the trampoline to jump over the fence. 

So, we got to work. First, I took out the netting part of the trampoline. Then I started to jump (by the way, I had to be the one to go over the fence because I'm taller and older than my cousin).

First try - I almost cracked my head
Second try - this time I convinced my cousin to do it but at the last second, he chickened out.
Third try - I jumped and missed but at the last second, my hand caught the fence, and with a lot of pushing I finally reached the other side.

Right when I landed on the ground the car pulled up the driveway! Wow, great timing! Once I got inside we unlocked the door for my cousin to get in and told our story.

I might have exaggerated a bit when I said an alien was chasing me but other than that it was a happy ending with lots of hot chocolate!

I was locked outside once. It wasn't fun, but I would never have thought of using a trampoline!

Wow, Nice job thinking of ideas of how to get out of the cold! I would have loved to jump over a fence with my trampoline! My fence is short enough that I can jump over it without anything though. :)
Are those pictures original? I like them too!
