The Bauer men are back home after a week-long road trip to points East: Wrigley Field; Notre Dame (we took pictures in front of Touchdown Jesus); Cleveland and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (unfortunately, we missed the Bruce Springsteen exhibit, which closed last month); Gettysburg (too awesome to be described); Washington, D.C. (we walked the Mall, saw the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the new World War II Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the Air & Space Museum); Princeton (we ran on PU's new world-class track); Cooperstown (a beautiful drive to a beautiful small town with, of course, the Baseball Hall of Fame); and, on the way home, Niagara Falls. A great, great time and a great trip through what is still the greatest country in the world. And all of it with my beloved son. What could be better? I repeat: Life is worth living.
In any event, that's where we were and why I wasn't blogging last week.
