Stitches to Tickets (WARNING: GRAPHIC)

We have been very busy on this trip. Tackling these big cities in such a short period of time leaves one quite tired at the end of the day. Luckily we were heading to the relaxing area of the Shenandoah. We arrived around 12 at the cabin, we sat down and relaxed for a second after unpacking. Then we decided to go to the grocery store to obtain some supplies for dinner and smores for dessert. This is where the trouble started!


The boys played outside for a bit and then we headed to the store. Dre was running around and ended up picking up every snack he could find. Jeff continued to tell Andre to put back the snacks, which turned into a game of picking up items and then running to put them back on the shelf. Well, the ice cream cones were the final play in the game because Andre slipped on the floor and fell into the shelf:


After the “Great Fall of Shenandoah”, Jeff and I went to the freezer section and grabbed a bag of peas. Then we ran to the bathroom to get paper towels and off to the ER we went. We waited about 30 min in the ER before going back and that’s where the real trauma took place – the anticipation of stiches. Needless to say, it was a pretty rough experience but after it was all over, he looked much better.


We closed the night with some BBQ and smores as originally intended and then we watched TV and chilled.


The next couple days were great. We hiked the mountains and explored caves. We ran around a life-size maze that Dre absolutely loved.

**This was the last blog we made on our East Coast Road trip. We had about 15 more days to go when we just got demotivated after the injury.***
