15 places

I know again that I have been away from my blog for awhile. I really think I should, and then I don't, write. Life hasn't exactly been easy lately... every year at this time it is like this.

Anyways, I am copying this from my friend Heidi's blog. She and I saw this article on CNN called 15 places kids should see by age 15 and she commented about at twice that age (and a Canadian as well) she had seen 4 of those places. I know that when I read that article I thought that I doubt my kids will see close to even half of those by then. At this point the only place they have been to is Walt Disney World. So I thought I would go through and add where I have been.
Here is the list:
1.Grand Canyon - Arizona
2.Redwood National Park - California
3.Monticello - Virginia
4.The Freedom Trail - Massachusetts
5.Niagara Falls - New York
6.The National Mall - Washington, D.C.
7.Williamsburg - Virginia
8.Walt Disney World Resort - Florida
9.Independence Hall - Pennsylvania
10.Alcatraz Island - California
11.Ellis Island - New York
12.Yellowstone National Park - Wyoming, Montana and Idaho
13.Fenway Park - Massachusetts
14.Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve - Idaho
15.San Diego Zoo - California

Funny, the National Mall and Ellis Island were both part of a confirmation class trip. Otherwise I have been to WDW 3 times. I almost went to the San Diego Zoo when I was there, my sister lives there so I have been pretty close. Of the other places I would be most interested in seeing Monticello, Williamsburg and Independence Hall since they have to do with the history of the United States. I will say, I doubt I will see all 15 myself unless we win the lottery and decide to rent a motorhome across the country.

Yeah, none of them are particularly easy for you to access huh? Well, maybe when your kids are older you can go on a roadtrip :)
