As it turns out, my parents' plan worked out as we had 2/3's of the next gen show up this year (twice as much as we had expected), as they like these trips and the time spent with their cousins. College Spew is one for three over the past three years, but is likely to attend next year.
And yes, there will be a next year as my mom used all of her guilt powers and perhaps made us make an unbreakable vow to continue these trips after my parents pass on (yes, they talk about their deaths quite a bit despite being pretty healthy for octogenarians).
The question is where? My turn to organize the trip and I am confused. My parents have traveled extensively, so much so, from the arctic circle to Antarctica, from India to Chile to Kenya, that trying to go some place new is a bit of a challenge. When I listed various Canadian places, it turns out that my parents have been to every province but Saskatchewan (although none of the territories). The big hole in my mom's travel is ... the US midwest. So, maybe Wisconsin, Michigan or Minnesota for next year?
We shall see. The only thing I know for sure is that this song works well for my folks and for us:
Onto a day of tourism in Boston before we fly back to Canadia.
