We were on our way to fancy
But it was a six hour drive to get there…and big kids or not, the whole—“how much longer, Mom?”—gets old. And let’s not talk about where to stop for 4yrold potty breaks!
To make it more bearable for the kids (and mom) we mapped out Redbox sites! Spiderwick Chronicles to the rescue. There were Redboxes in both of the tiny towns of Burley and Hailey. Who needs beautiful scenery? Not the kids…eh?
(PS. You know you are an addict when the promised WIFI at “the clubhouse” doesn’t exist. And you can’t imagine anything worse. The horrors.)
Hello. My name is Carissa, welcome to Onliners Anonymous.
3 parts children, 1 part giant pool.
(complete with diving board, 4 foot area and plenty of steps in the shallow area for 4yrold to play in)
What do you have? 3 kids playing OUTside the pool begging for snacks and asking “when can we go over to the playground?…can we go to the park now?” Etc…
What gives? They maybe get to play in a pool once a week during the summer—and rarely in the winter? I think if they had one other kid in the mix they could play all day. Sibling crap would fly out the window?
