Heading to the Adirondacks
Date #820 — Thursday, March 24, 2016
B: It was Easter weekend and so my family was getting ready for our annual trip to the Adirondacks near Lake Placid, NY. We went there for the first time last year and it now has become a tradition.
A and I were going to leave from my parents a day early to pickup my little sister and then spend 1 more day of hiking before the rest of the family arrived. The plan was to pickup my Sister along the highway and then drive to the Alpine Club of Canada Hut that is in Keene Valley.
There was a whole messup with us picking up the car that resulted in us being quite late to pickup my sister. It was initially frustrating and stressful and really taught A and I some lessons in communicating with my family. We made the decision to relax and not let the mixup frustrate us though.
Instead we went and got $5 pizzas for the ride (despite my Mom’s request not to eat in the car). Roadtrips with A are always so much fun!
A: This was, as B said, an important day for learning. B is very much of the practice that, if plans are made during a conversation, that’s all that needs to be said. But the first thing B’s sister asked when we told her we would be mega late to pick her up was, “Did you confirm with our parents???” B said, “I don’t think we have to since we discussed the plan already!” And I immediately felt silly for not taking more responsibility in the planning. I just left it to B to it, and that’s ok, because we both learned that the way we handled the planning was a little slip up. I think we work great as a team and next time we’ll combine our approaches.
Thankfully it all worked out. B’s sis was able to catch a later train, and we got to secretly eat pizza in the car (and we didn’t spill it anywhere don’t worry Debbie!!!).
