"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Pictures from the Road Trip

Here is the boy child in all his glory on our road trip last week.    In Gettysburg, atop Big Round Top:

In Washington, on the Mall:

And, on the way back home, at Niagara Falls:

A great, great trip.   I heartily recommend one-on-one trips with one's children; it's something you'll remember forever.   As you can see, by the end of the trip I had finally figured out how to make a fourteen year-old boy smile for pictures!
