Did you ever have that one thing that you always loved as a child? I did for sure and it wasn’t like most kids with their stuffed animals or their dolls. Mine was a movie it was about firetrucks, I don’t know why but I loved that thing and I mean I loved it. About 9 or 10 years ago me and my family went on a one week vacation to Maine in September. We went with my dad's brother’s family and his daughter and her husband. Also some family friends were there too and they had two twin boys a year younger than me. During this vacation we rented three log cabins and each family had their own cabin. In my cabin it was me, my brother Andrew and my parents. In another was my uncle and my aunt along with my cousin and her husband. In the last cabin was my uncle’s family friends and their kids. The cabins were a bit on the smaller side but it had everything that you would need for a vacation. It was a little bigger than a hotel room. There was; one bathroom, two bedrooms, a master and a regular sized one with bunk beds were me and my brother slept, kitchen and a living room. Wasn’t much but it did it’s job. I don’t remember much from this vacation but this one thing.
One morning on the vacation my whole family and I got up and as I was eating pancakes and some hash browns for breakfast my mom put in my favorite movie. That movie was about firetrucks and what they were used for, who used them. My favorite part was when the firefighters were explaining everything about the fire truck. . So i finished eating breakfast and I finished the rest of the movie. After the movie was done my mom took it out of the CD player and put it on the ground so she could find the case for the movie and Andrew was running around because we were playing tag together. While we were doing this my little brother Andrew stepped on my movie and snapped it in half. After he broke it I was crying for like 30 minutes but it felt like 3 hours because I was a 4 or 5 year old boy and had no sense of time at all. I was devastated I didn’t know what I was going to do the rest of the trip. This happened on one of the first days of the vacation so I was whining because all I wanted to do was watch that movie.
The rest of the vacation we did stuff outside like hiking at Sugarloaf Mountain. We went for walks at lakes and ponds, at those lakes and ponds we also went fishing and swimming nearby. Even though I didn’t have my favorite movie/ childhood toy I still was able to have fun on this vacation. I was a bit cranky for a day or two though. So at the end of vacation my mom tried her best to find the movie but she couldn’t so she just got the closest thing to the movie. But, it just wasn’t the same. I learned that I was really attached to that one movie and nothing else could replace it.
