Dad’s been working over-time lately, he’s been trying to save for a vacation to the Cascade Mountains. It seems like everyone I know goes up there for a quick weekend, some of my classmates even own property there, but we have never been. Dad loves to camp, though Mom is not a fan at all.

narrated by: George

It’s pretty quiet during the week with just me and Mandy. Usually it’s just Sydney freaking out about the mailman to break the silence of the house.
