One of the best experiences we ever had was going out to Washington DC to visit my cousin and his children. We visited the DC sights.... some of the National Museums that are there, rode the metro, ate at one of their favorite places (Johnny Rocket's), visited the Lincoln Memorial, and the Vietnam and Korean Memorials. It was breath-taking and educational and a whole lot of fun! It was Punky's first time flying. We went to the beach and were beach bums. It was wonderful, dreamy, very vacation-ish. Not the stress of "real life." My girls have not gotten a lot of vacations and this was a good one and I am very happy we had the chance to do it.

|Everybody knows this guy, right?|
|Yes, that is really a cockroach. Notice the look of skepticism on my daughter's face.|

Dream places to visit?
I would love to go to the Caribbean. I found this picture online.
I would like to take my kids on a cruise sometime. I know I'll never get rich teaching, but I have high hopes that I'll one day have the money to take them on a memorable family vacation.
Then there is this dream, another someday dream: to teach in a tropical location, like Puerto Rico or Hawaii. Just to pack up and leave everything behind and go to some place far, far away and encounter a different lifestyle.
