The 17 Best Moments From The Camp In 'The Parent Trap'

The 17 Best Moments From The Camp In 'The Parent Trap'

We all wanted to go to Camp Walden for girls.

1. When we met the coolest, most underrated character in cinematic history, TIE-DYE GIRL.

2. When Annie arrived at camp and she and Martin did their infamous handshake.

3. After an epic fencing battle, when the twins realized that they look just alike.

4. And Annie gave Halle a piece of her mind in this timeless quote.

5. Then they played the most badass game of poker ever.

6. Afterwards, Halle pulled off the most insane prank Camp Walden for girls had ever seen.

7. And Annie was beyond pissed.

8. When the twins began to bond and 11-year-old Halle expressed her thoughts on important matters.

9. And revealed her crush on actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

10. But poor lil' Annie was confused by her American ways.

11. When they realized (AFTER MORE THAN A MONTH OF KNOWING EACH OTHER) that they were twins.

12. When Halle realized that they can switch and reunite their parents.

13. So she had to transform Annie's London locks into her cool Cali 'do.

14. And then had to pierce her ears.

15. And after, they looked like the most stylin' pair of twin campers you ever did see.

16. And they began practicing for their Napa and London debuts.

17. And Annie (now Halle) wished Halle (now Annie) safe travels on her way to meet their mom.

To The Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.


When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.
