- Family time in Cincinnati, Iowa, Oklahoma, and Wyoming
- Two new states for Riley (Michigan and Vermont, leaving only Alaska!)
- Three new states for Tracy (Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho)
- Niagara falls for Riley
- Quality friends time in Ann Arbor, MI, Toronto, Saratoga Springs, NY (happy wedding, Matty and Sandra!), Cincinnati, OH, Bozeman, MT, and Boise, ID.
- Take in a pro sporting event in a new venue (Redwings hockey in Detroit)
- Ski at a new mountain (Big Sky, MT)
We'll see if the weather cooperates! And heck, by the time we're done, we will have nearly matched our greatest number of consecutive days in each other's company, second only to our wedding week + honeymoon AND Tracy's most recent stay in Seattle (a perfect tie). There have to be some good bonding nuggets in there somewhere for us crazy newlyweds.
