What a Vacation Consists of…… August 28, 2011

Posted by boaktree in Uncategorized.

Today I’m going enthral you all with a tale of just what exactly a “vacation” consits of in my world.

Are you ready for this?

In my world, a vacation consists of……

Over $260 dollars worth of (overly processed and therefore special and fun) food crammed into two vans and several coolers.  We buy ahead of time and take it with us because everything is way overpriced in the small local town to where we rent our cottage.

One princess sister.  Definately the highlight of the week.

Seven children.  Yes, seven.

One husband.  Who only stayed for one day.

Two parents who visited for a couple of hours each day.  As they ever so kindly put it, it was rather “lively” considering those seven children.  They can only handle so much.

One inch long sliver in the three year old’s foot.  Eeks.

One ten year old falling down the rocks and into the water due to a non-malicious shove from her brother.

One bruised hand on a very curious one and a half year old.

One goose egg on aforementioned three year old’s forehead.

More screaming than anyone would care to listen to from various sources throughout the week.

Constant narrative on how everyone is hungry.  All.the.time.

Boiling water to handwash dishes.  Blah.

Learning how to maintain a compostable toilet. Ahem. Fun.

Bathing small children in an inflatable boat filled with water.  Not overly effective.

A visit from a very special cousin.  Who was ever so entertaining, as usual.

An aromatic outhouse.

Three very friendly ducks that were fed too much bread.

Being witness to several arguments over My Little Ponies and Polly Pockets.  Why?

A conoe ride with two ten year olds, a three year old and a toddler (who only came along because he couldn’t stand the sight of me paddling away) on which we became stuck on a large rock.  While my Dad simply watched and laughed.  So helpful.

Tiger Tail icecream.  Only place I ever eat it.

Stunning views of the Moon River.

A soggy wild mushroom fight.

Blank stares.

Awesome evenings spent with my sister.  Who is ever so funny

It may not have been very relaxing……but it was an awesome time.
