Aunty Rosy was not going to listen to any more excuses from our parents.
She wanted to see us as soon as possible and made all the arrangements for the trip.
But our parents wanted to vacation somewhere with a beach and sand. However, they know our aunt was getting on in her years and enjoyed her family around. So, we agreed to visit her and spend our two-week summer vacation in Libertyville. We arrived in the municipality on a Tuesday afternoon, and there she was at the airport to pick us up. She came with a driver who helped load all our luggage into the van. Aunty Rosy was so happy to see us and kept scolding our parents for not coming to see her earlier. She lived in a posh part of the town in a 6 bedroom house. All our rooms were already set, and each had a mini-thermostat to adjust the cooling system as we wanted. It was summer, and the cool air felt amazing when we walked into her home. Aunty Rosy’s housekeeper ushered us into the house and showed us all around the house. Next, we each got our luggage all set in the bedrooms. Aunty Rosy was not wasting any time. She said we should rest because she had so many places to show us the next day. We all had a lovely dinner prepared by her chef and were so engrossed in the stories that she told from her childhood. Aunty Rosy even added a few funny tales about my dad when he was younger. It turned out to be a fantastic vacation for all of us, and I promised her I’d be back soon to check out the colleges in the area.
