Today we drove 12 hours to get from Halifax to Sunday River.
We were supposed to stop in Bangor but dad said we got here too fast and we’ll be bored.
“We should go the whole way,” said Dad
I was bored sitting in the back of the car because my iPod ran out of batteries. But Castie was throbbing after Tuesday’s operation. It’d only been two days.
So mum said sitting still is best — strapping me in the back seat seemed to do it!
We got to stop twice, once for brekkie at The Silver Fox in New Brunswick and once in Bangor at Applebees before we FINALLY arrived! The fight began for ‘who gets to press the elevator buttons”… I bet this only happens in MY family!
“March Break can be full breaks…literally falling so close to February’s icy slick grasp, sometimes the best laid family holiday plans are fractured by an injury or illness. My daughter’s finding the silver lining and wanted to make a diary of her ‘attached at the finger’ buddy, Castie. Perhaps her optimism can help other families salvage the dramas that often disrupt a well-planned family ‘vacay’.” With a little help from a creative…often desperate and slightly frantic mum, trying to solve the puzzles in her world.
