I recently went on my first vacation in many, many years with my son and grandchildren. We only went to Rhode Island and Boston, but we created so many wonderful and lasting memories. The kids were thrilled to "swim in a real ocean", collect shells, see crabs, and see the sights and sounds of the attractions we went to. My grandson thought the greatest thing was to "pet" the stingrays at the New England Aquarium. Those experiences for them, and for me, will last a lifetime.
