Festibond 2013 – Hayley

For Festibond this year we went to breakfast, went to a hotel, played games, read letters to each other, and swam in the hotel pool. I went with Mom in her car to the hotel and we laughed and talked while Mom made silly noises.

When we got to the hotel, we left Mom’s car and went in Dad’s car together to Sea Dog Brewery for breakfast. We took some pictures and talked. I got the two french toasts with strawberries which wasn’t very good. I found a hair in it and it tasted almost battery in the middle. Jenna ordered three french toasts with bacon and just two french toasts came with no bacon. So the restaurant wasn’t very good but I still was enjoying the time with my family.

We went back to the hotel and brought all our bags in. After getting settled and unpacking, we read letters to each other that we had written ahead of time. They were all so well thought-out and loving. I almost cried for some of them.

My amazing family!

After the amazing letters we went to the pool. I was so exited even though I couldn’t go in the deep end. We went down, and it was so nice and fancy. It had a sauna, a hot tub, a big pool and a shower; and it was a great temperature. I cannonballed in first thing, and the water was great. I was splashing around with Jenna and Skye for a while as Dad and Mom lay on the lounge chairs. This was so much fun, and I never wanted to go, but eventually we did.

When we got back to hotel room we started playing games such as Monopoly and Yahtzee. We never finished a game but it was great fun anyway. I probably wouldn’t have won one of them anyway.

We went back to the pool after that because we loved it a lot. We swam for a while. Well, I never really swam until the very end when I finally learned how to swim on my back into the deep end. I didn’t get very far out and wasn’t very good at it, but I was proud of myself nonetheless. I, of course, had a lot of help from Skye.

After the pool we went back to the hotel room and watched some TV, ate some snacks, and went to sleep. I thought it was cool to sleep in the roll-away bed. I had an amazing Festibond and love my family!
