We Watched TV on Vacation

When you pack your bags and leave for vacation there are certain expectations you have when you reach your destination. None of which include watching TV. But that is just what we did our first night in Niagara Falls. You see when you have boys, no matter what age, they must and I mean must because it’s in their DNA, must jump on the hotel beds. When they simultaneously stopped wrestling and Boy #3 lifted his arm in the air and looked at me in a panic, I knew we were screwed.
The husband and I try to plan our vacations without them now. Trusted Tours & Attractions can help us find discounts on sightseeing tours for two. Sign up for their Newsletter before January 31, 2008 and you can enter to their Win Handheld GPS drawing.

The arm swelled, we got ice, ordered a Pizza and watched National Treasure our first night in Niagara Falls. We found an over-priced ace bandage, wrapped him up and I fed him ibuprofen for three days while vacationing. He really wasn’t in much pain but I took him to the doctor when we got home. The doctor called me into the hallway to show me the x-ray and said, “He should be screaming in pain, his arm is completely broken, both bones.” Mommy’s tough little man.

Sorry about the rough time you had on vacation. You went to Niagara Falls in January? I was there in February years ago and most of the falls were frozen over. It was a sight to see, but it was cold.

Oh no, this vacation was a few years ago in the summer! We still went on the Maid of the Mist, broken arm and all! LOL!
