I’d be hard pressed to think of a Spring Break trip that topped last year’s to Soaring Eagle Casino with my mom and dad (sarcasm!). I guess it would’ve been more fun if my parents were big gamblers, but they aren’t so we all just hung around the Blackjack table. I know, I know. I’m fortunate that I got to go on a trip at all, but to a Casino!? At least I won some money.
This year, I’m going to my family’s condo in West Palm Beach, Florida, with my parents. We’ve had the condo all my life, so we usually find the time to go once a year, but its been a while since we’ve been able to go for Spring Break.
After this year’s long winter, I don’t think there’s a better time to go. The reason it worked out so well is because my brother, a freshman at Kalamazoo College, is going down to Orlando, FL, for his break the week after ours because he’s on the baseball team there. Luckily for me, my parents had the grand idea to go down the week before during my Spring Break. I remember the conversation because of how funny I thought it was.
“Hey, Jimmy. What are you doing for Spring Break?” Said my Dad.
“Uh… nothing?” I said timidly, hoping that we wouldn’t be making a return trip to Soaring Eagle.
“Cool. We’re going to Florida!” Said my Dad.
“Oh, sweet!” I yelled back.
For once I felt like my parents and I were on the same wavelength when it comes to winter weather. I can’t wait.
