Back to it

by john on August 27, 2003

I’m back. I’m sure you missed me. Seven days out East for the four of us. First real family vacation, hopefully first of many – we had a ball. And I never checked email once (although I will admit to checking this site and deleting a porn spam comment). Here is the vacation in a nutshell: We visited Hershey and I didn’t eat any chocolate. We visited Philly and I didn’t eat a cheese-steak. We visited Atlantic City and I didn’t gamble. We visited Ocean City and I didn’t fish.

OK – I lied. I did sneak back to the Borgata in Atlantic City for some craps and blackjack at 2:30AM one morning when we were in Ocean City and was back just as the kids were waking up. As it turns out I would have been better off staying away, although I did pretty well at BJ which almost got me back to even. Borgata was pretty nice as can be expected but I was surprised to have to pay $3 for surface parking as I was leaving.

I have three words for any parent traveling with a 5 and 6 year old:

PORTABLE DVD PLAYER.
