Things are going to be kind of quiet around here for the next 10 days because....
I'm Going On Vacation!!!
We are taking a "Tour de History" on the east coast.
Stop One: The Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Maryland. We'll be touring Fort McHenry (War of 1812), the USS Constellation (the only Civil War ship still floating today), and the USS Torsk (a WWII era submarine.
Stop Two: Washington D.C. We're going to hit the Smithsonian (Air and Space, Natural History and American History) and of course all of the monuments...at night, when they look so cool. We are also going to take in Arlington Nat'l Cemetery and Monticello.
Stop Three: Assateague Island National Seashore home of the wild ponies made famous to children everywhere through Marguerite Henry's book series "Misty" (which we are reading together in the car on the way there). We'll be spending some time at the beach, hiking, exploring lighthouses, and hopefully observing the ponies.
Between Stops: We are also stopping at Gettysburg and Antietam Battlefields.
Stop Four: Pittsburgh, PA where we'll get to spend a few days with my brother and his family. We are also going to dress in red from head to toe and go cheer the Cardinals on to a victory against the Pirates.
Stop Five: The Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, one of our favorite free museums.
We are camping the entire time so it is doubtful that we will have internet access until we arrive in Pittsburgh next weekend. Until then I've got a few random pictures to post each day and that's it.
I'm kind of looking forward to having a break from technology for a while. See you in about 10 days!
