Baby Boy

Not such a baby anymore~ today, he is 19 years old & still my heart's joy. Clever, funny, & kind, he's a good friend, a protective son, & a man of integrity~ his motto: "Fight for a just cause, love your fellow man, live a good life." Any wonder I am such a proud parent? Happy Birthday, Sam.

The votes are in~ two for Vegas, one for the Grand Canyon, one for the Northwest, & several "Gee, I have no ideas" ~ so we are heading to... Washington DC! Yes, we were there two years ago, but were only able to see a fraction of what we wanted, so we figured it's the right time to go back. The plan is to fly into DC, spend three days in the museums, & then take the train south to Richmond, VA to spend the remaining four days sightseeing & fly home from there. The travel folder has been started, with the Nation Museum of American History, Monticello, & Williamsburg on the "must-do" list; oh, and in case you were wondering, I have already reserved our tour of the Washington Monument~ no repeat drama this trip Wink

Your son is sure a handsome fellow, Meg. Happy Birthday to him! I think it is wonderful to have a son. I sure do love mine, and understand your pride in yours.

Oh, you are going to visit some of my favorite places. I love all the history in that part of the world.

You do realize that DC is less than 3 hrs from Etown? Best of luck to you on your trip. Good idea on the reserved tickets for the Washington Monument we did that 5 yrs ago and had no snags!!
