is your cat female, on the small side with a very chubby tummy, "allows" your kids to sleep in their bed with her, and responds to "Tinky-winky"?

We leave on June 30 for the Spirit of America trip. I really wish that we had received a more detailed itinerary, but I know that we will learn more upon arrival. I love the backpacks! DD really wanted to bring hers to school today, but I told her she had to wait until vacation!

That's great news. It's funny how that package in the mail gives you that "OMG, we're really going on this trip and it's almost here" feeling!

That day when you receive the box is when the ABD trip becomes so real! It's one of the best feelings to get that box!!!

You guys are going to have such a great time. That was such a fun trip and DD will have a great time at Wolf Lodge and you guys will like all the little special things ABD does for you.You guys will be in DC for the 4th right,people who went last year had a great time at the mall watching the fireworks.Have fun take way to many pictures and don't forget to plan your free time before you leave if you can.We are waiting for our box also I can't wait

I am actually at the Great Wolf Lodge in Dallas right now. We decided that we would have a mini-trip before our big one next month. Planning free time is the one thing that we really haven't done yet. I have planned the Philly days, but that's about it. In D.C., I know that I want to go to Ford's Theater and spend time at the Smithsonian. I don't know of any special restaurants or even quick serve places that I need to try. And, I haven't even thought about what to do in Williamsburg. Does anyone have suggestions?

Touring the buildings at Williamsburg takes time. I'm not sure what they have included in the ABD tour - but going to the kitchen and Governer's Mansion is great. Also, there is some great shopping in near the Historic Part. There's the Trellis Restaurant near the historic part - the guy that owns it used to have the TV show The Burgermiester and Death By Chocolate. They have great deserts! There's Christiana Campbell's Restaurant where you eat by candlelight and have great meal. Not sure how much free time you get - PM me if you need more ideas. My mom went to William and Mary and we lived about an hour away and went quite often when I was growing up. I still go at least once a year to go outlet shopping.

IMHO more time in Williamsburg would have been fine with us It seemed to us that we needed more time their as we only had one day As for the Smiths yes if you can pick one to go to that will be cool we did Ford Theather and the house across the street and the International Spy Museum.We mostly did all are dining at the host hotels saved us time trying to find a place to eat.

Are they taking you through the "historic triangle" That would consist of Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown! I live exactly 60 minutes from my driveway to the burg. My husband proposed to me 10 years ago in front of the Governor's Palace and I grew up going up there walking those streets for mini getaways! Has a special place in my heart

Let me know if you have any questions!
