First Passports

I received my first passport in 1985, when my family moved to Germany. We lived there for most of that year. Our passports enabled us to visit Bavarian castles, Swiss lakes, Austrian villages and many other places. It was a great learning experience and planted the seeds of future travel for myself and my sister.

This week we got our kids their first passports. Right now they do not understand the convenience of getting a passport issued same-day at the State Department, but the world is now open to them.

It has been a long cold winter in the DC area. Although the calendar says it is Spring, yesterday we had windchills in the 20s. I'm excited to leave the cold behind for a few days and build some family memories along the way.
