Home sweet home - if we could get there.

A planned 6.5 hour trip took almost 9 hours due to traffic jams from Baltimore, MD to our exit on the New Jersey Turnpike.

We had a great vacation in Virginia, but we're glad to be home.


Some tips we learned

1)      Never underestimate the intelligence of a 3.5 year old

2)      We wish we would have gotten our kids some children's books about Mt. Vernon, Jamestown & Williamsburg before we left.

3)      We saved hundreds eating breakfast, lunch or dinner (1 meal a day) at the hotel in our room.

4)      We probably saved several hundreds more by buying bottled water at the supermarket - we went through 2 cases easily.  Water at any of the parks will cost you around $3 a bottle.

5)      As usual, we picked up the free coupon book available almost anywhere - we got some great tips & discounts.
