Times Gus and his cousin woke up (and woke us up): too many to count

Oh no, that’s terrible! Though I guess if you have to throw up, it’s better to do it in a house than while camping. Hope you guys managed to have some fun during your break.
We did! And yes, throwing up at your friend’s is preferable to throwing up outside camping in the rain!
Number of times Max threw up the night we were supposed to be camping but (due to inclement weather) stayed at our friend in Florida’s house: 5.
