July 2002. My brother, sister and I went to Ontario with my parents. I look back on it as the last great experience of my childhood. Not only was it the final time I would make it up to my Grandparents' cottage with the majority of my family, it was also one of the most brilliantly fun times I've ever had. Time changes so many things... within a handful of years, it seems like a distant memory.
That fall, the giant chair was destroyed by a tornado (In Ontario?! Who knew?).
