Me and my sister ran to the front door anxiously waiting for the news. He opened the door and walked in. We tried to read the expression on his face but of course he was looking down while taking his sneakers off. The suspense was killing us. Then he looked up. No words were spoken between us and our father. He just gave us a blank stare. I didn't know what to think. I was scared to ask because I was so worried of the response.

We were okay with this because by this time we were exhausted ourselves. Then it all continued with bumper cars, ferris wheels, train rides, go-karts, and all the games you can think of.
