    Just a reminder that you have actually been to Washington, DC (remember 6th grade trip? plus we stayed in Maryland on that trip-Does that count?) Washington state (remember trip to Alaska with Lala and Big Daddy summer after 7th grade?) and Massachusetts (remember trip to Boston?)

  2. Cathy says:

    I almost forgot the trip to the Madam Alexander Doll convention-we stayed in New Jersey, so maybe you can cross that state off your list! Looks like you’re getting old judging from the states you’ve been to!

  3. Cathy says:

    One more–oops-I didn’t see that you had crossed off DC. Sorry!
