Vacation

No daily updates for a bit as I take the family to Washington D.C. and I go geek at all the museums. We're driving down to Colonial Williamsburg too for the Abby Aldrich Folk Art Museum! I may be able to post a few things to Facebook during the trip so check that out when you can.

See you all in about 2 weeks!
