Every year since 1996 I have enjoyed a spring break with my children. In 1996 there was just one, then in 1998 came the second bundle of joy. As time marches on, my first child is 18 and will be heading off to college next year. Next year he will probably want to spend his spring break with friends, normal and natural.
For this years spring break, I began planning approximately 6 months ago, trying to poll multiple personalities, to find some common happy median. It was a futile effort. Either we could not agree, or no one wanted to discuss it “now,” after all, it was months away. After painful negotiating, I was somehow able to choose Colonial Williamsburg.
About two months ago, after my son, Mathew, was accepted to Case Western Reserve, I decided to include an excursion to visit the school in Cleveland, OH in this vacation. Pictured is one of the wedding gowns displayed at a Case Western historical gallery exhibit. This gown caught my daughter Kendall’s attention. It very shinny and just what a “flapper” getting married might have worn.
After a very early flight yesterday and a 9+ hour drive from Atlanta to Williamsburg, we will tour Williamsburg for the next three days before getting taking the AutoTrain back to Tampa on Monday. Then Monday afternoon I see a patient for extractions, dental implants, immediate temporary fixed bridge work and under sedation.
I hope to blog a little about history after immersing ourselves in the Colonial and pre-Colonial time periods the next few days.
