A Trip to The Zoo

Child stories | A trip to the zoo talks about how things can wrong sometimes. Here is how the story goes.

 

 

Spring break was finally here. Ken had been waiting it for so long, and he was particularly excited for it because his mother was taking him on a trip to the zoo. Ken had only been to the zoo once before on a field trip at school, but since the school was on a schedule, the students were unable to see all of the animals in the zoo. This time, Ken and his mother were going to see all of the animals, from elephants to lions to snakes.

On Monday morning, the first official day of spring break, Ken’s mother woke him up, letting him know that they would have to leave for the zoo early if they wanted to see all of the animals of the zoo before closing time at 7:00pm. It was already 11:00am, and the zoo was a good hour and a half away from home by car.

After a quick egg, toast and orange juice breakfast, Ken and his mother locked up the house, settled into the car, and were well on their way to the zoo. Ken was so excited, he couldn’t stop asking his mother, “Are we there yet?”After a while, Ken became upset, and was worried that he wouldn’t be able to see all of the animals in the zoo with his mother, because they had hit heavy traffic. Cars were moving and stopping, moving and stopping and the time ticked by swiftly. It was already 1:00pm and Ken was becoming uneasy. “We’ll be there soon Ken, don’t worry. We’ll get to see all of the animals.”

The traffic was at its worst point, and cars were constantly changing lanes, trying to stay in the fastest one. Finally, the source of the heavy traffic, a car with a flat tire, was found. The car was on the right side of the two lanes, causing such heavy traffic because everyone had to merge into the left lane to pass by. “I wanna see the flat tire mommy, slow down!” Ken cried. Ken’s mother slowed down, and the two studied the flat tire for a few seconds. Before they knew it, they felt a thud in their seats, and as Ken’s mother tried to drive forward again, the car did not feel the same, as it was pulling to the right. She pulled to the shoulder away from the traffic and got out of the car, only to notice that they had the same misfortune that the car with the flat tire did - Ken and his mother had a flat tire.

“Mommy! How are we ever going to make it to the zoo in time to see all of the nice animals now? We’ll be too late! Man, if we ever make it there today!” Ken exclaimed.

“Its ok, Ken. Things happen and if we can’t make it today, we’ll go tomorrow. I am off tomorrow too, ” replied Ken’s mother.

“Sure, ” said Ken, disappointment in his voice.

Ken sat in the car, listening to the radio as the traffic crawled by. His mom was in the back struggling to get the spare tire out of the trunk when another car seemed to be slowing down and pulled over right in front of their’s. A young man stepped out of the vehicle and headed to where Ken’s mom was.

“Good afternoon ma’am, flat tire problem?” The gentleman questioned.

“Good afternoon. Yes, as you can see, it seems that I drove over a nail or something.”

“Do you need a hand replacing that tire?”

“That’d be great! I was wondering how I was going to manage by myself. Thank you very much. You are a real gentleman.”

“No problem at all. I’d be more than happy to do it.”

It took the nice man about 15 minutes to change the flat tire. Ken’s mom thanked the man again and wished him the best of luck. By that time, Ken had realized that going to the zoo this late wasn’t such a good idea.

“So, I guess we’re going tomorrow, right mom?” Ken asked.

“Yes honey, It would be a waste of money to go there at this time. We’ll try again tomorrow, on one condition.”

“What is that mom?”

“You’ll have to be ready much earlier than today, deal?”

“Sure mom. I’ll be ready by 8, just wake me up about 7 or so, is that good?”

“Yes honey, that would be perfect. How would you like to go to the park for a couple of hours now?”

“I’d love that mom, thank you. You are the best.”

So Ken spent the next couple of hours playing in the park, and then his mother drove him home, where he went to bed early hoping that they won’t have any more misfortunes the next day.

The next morning ken and his mom got to the zoo early with no problems. Ken got to see all the animals. He enjoyed the monkeys' section the most. He was amazed as how they can jump from one lim of a tree to another wih ease. The noises and faces they made had him laughing out loud. He had lots of fun that day, and he kept talkin to his mom about that one specific monkey that he liked a lot all the way home.
