Our best summer ever! The Summer of 2006 our twin boys were nine and we had planned the most amazing adventure; 3 1/2 weeks in a motor home driving around the United States. We called it the Short Attention Span Tour because we saw everything, just not for very long.
A night in Death Valley, a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Fireworks in Tennessee, Catfishing in Alabama, bicycling the cobblestones of Savannah. Then up the East Coast along the strange-flat Atlantic to Philly, New York, Washington DC and then Niagara.
We cut across the top of the US and visited the Great Lakes, Chicago, Wisconsin, Mt. Rushmore, and Devil's Tower. Then the last leg home through Utah and back to Amador County.
When our kids started fifth grade, the teacher asked them to color in all the states they had visited. Max and Adam got to color any entire circle around their maps.
It was truly an amazing summer.
