Today is Friday, and my countdown to vacation has started. Tomorrow morning we leave for Washington, D.C. for a week of family fun. Rachel has been asking to go up there for some time, so we decided to do it this year. The girls are looking forward to the trip. We are driving this year, which will be our first road trip vacation since St. Louis in 2005. We rented some movies on iTunes last night, so they each have something to watch and plenty of music to last the whole trip. We’ll be stopping in Knoxville on the way to pick up Jacinda’s dad, who is traveling with us this year. I plan to update the blog and post some pics from the trip throughout the week. So, the next time I post will be from D.C.
