What happens when 3 teens, 2 parents, and 15 pieces of luggage head up north for a sightseeing trip? The educational field trip to end all field trips? The vacation that required the planning skills of an army general (and the financial backing of a certain game show)? Stay tuned to find out!
For the first time in 5 years we’re taking a family vacation that cannot be classified as “Einstein”. (You’ve heard of Einstein vacations haven’t you? They’re all relative.) Shh…you may not have heard but the UC is actually a native of….New Jersey! He’s taking his Texas-born wife and younguns to see his old stomping grounds in Neptune. (And you thought men were from Mars!)
Upcoming highlights and tour stops include: Philadelphia (Independence, Liberty, and Cheesesteaks for all), Hershey, PA (“How much chocolate would it take to make you happy?” “How much is there?”), Washington DC (Fireworks on the 4th. This is one mall that doesn’t involve shopping), and New York City! (Do people there really dress in black all the time? Will we stick out like tourists even without matching “I heart NY” t-shirts? Should I be more careful about striking up conversations with strangers? )
Inquiring minds will be rewarded.
