As a family they threw away the monkey's paw. They wanted to throw it in the fire because bad things were happening with it. They decided they would soon go on a nice family trip.
They decided to go on a family trip because their family is all back to normal. Herbert is back and better than ever. They wanted to take time off of the whole situation and just have family time. They ended up having a great time. Herbert also told them he was watching them while he went to heaven for a little bit.
