Four years ago I brought Lucas to Pirate Adventures in Annapolis. His vivid imagination overwhelmed him and he couldn’t enjoy the adventure. He sat closely to me on the boat, clutching my handbag so that the pirates couldn’t steal it.
It was a beautiful summer day, perfect to enjoy Annapolis. I knew Penny and Oliver would enjoy the pirate experience so after four years we made our way back to Pirate Adventures. To my surprise Lucas remembered every detail of that day four years earlier; how he tripped in the parking lot and scraped his knee and the things I said to ease his worries and keep a smile on his face.
