Sadly, now that CJ is practically a high school senior, our family vacation days might be numbered. With that in mind, we told the boys that they could have a say in planning an impromptu June trip.
Because of the demands of my non-blogging day job, we gave them the following parameters:
- No distant time zones
- Good Blackberry reception
- Possibility of using frequent flier miles
We suggested that the boys think about the Caribbean, Canada, New England or the National Parks. But here is what they came up with: A five-city baseball tour.
So we're off next week to Atlanta, Chicago, The Bronx, Cleveland and Cooperstown. (We have learned the secret to scoring mileage awards at the last minute: Go to places with treacherous heat waves, flash floods and tornadoes.) Ironically we are returning to three of the spots that CJ and I recently visited on college tours. But we will somehow manage to come up with a few more schools to check out, if only to see what the tour guides wear in the summer instead of Uggs.
