The Camping Trip
A nature trail!
Aunt Jackie and cousin Samantha invited Ernestine to go camping with them, marking her first time experiencing the activity. She was incredibly excited, and her aunt picked her up on the day of the trip. However, upon arriving at the camping location after a long drive, Ernestine quickly realized how much work went into setting up a tent. She and her cousin pitched the tent successfully despite their exhaustion. Afterward, Samantha invited Ernestine to take a swim in the lake. Although Ernestine loves swimming, she hesitated when she saw the fish in the water, fearing they might bite her. As a result, she politely declined.
