Favorite Quote:
Don't let anybody look down on you because you are young. But set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

Thirty four states
Memories of gold
I'll remember these times
Until I am old

Eleven years young
Drove D.C. and back
New York, Pennsylvania
Fun it did not lack

Only the beginning
Of our family's great fun
The White House would be topped
By the next year's run

We headed up north
Yellowstone, Vancouver
Bear World was a blast
Tim Horton's was even better!

The fiver got a break
Come summer '08
Hawaii our destination
We all couldn't wait

Two new travelers
Grandma and Nick
Out of Polynesian Village
We got quite a kick

Our fourth great adventure
Rushmore up north
Saw Niagara Falls
For all it was worth

Let's all remember
The people we met
Family and friends
Our visits we won't regret

And now to last summer
It was such a blast
Disneyworld, New Orleans
It went by Oh so fast

I can't wait to see
What adventures lay in store
All the things we have done
But wait, there's still more!

The best thing about summer
Is not the sights and smells
It's being with my family
And the stories that we tell

The author's comments:
My family and I have a tradition every summer to take our fifth wheel anywhere and everywhere. I was 11 when we started. This is my favorite time of year. My family and I have gotten to see so many great places and people. 34 states already, 16 to go!
P.S. Some stuff won't make sense to anyone but my family, since this is specifically written for them.
