Are you planning on doing anything new this summer? Is there a special trip you want to take? Or someone special you're going to visit?

My son and I are going to take the train to Iowa to visit my daughter and her family. Neither of us has ever taken the train before so this should be a wonderful experience. But maybe you should ask me again after 28 hours on the train. And we will have a six hour layover in Chicago. We will have my laptop, a dvd player, his DS, and a few books to help with the long journey.

Please share your summertime plans with us.
