I know summer is far from over, but I just wanted to see what everyone has done so far. I've done a few things, but the main thing is go on a family trip. I recently got back from a vacation with family. We went to the northeastern coast of the US for 11 days. it was a roadtrip, so we went to more than 1 place during the trip, the first being Rhode Island. We stayed in a small town for a couple days and we even went to the beach on one of them! Being a lifelong resident of Kentucky, a landlocked state, it was my first time at the ocean! The other day we were there, we went to a lighthouse and did some other things. Next up was Salem and Boston, Massachusetts. In Salem, we went to an old house and then we learned about the Salem witch trials. In Boston, we went on a boat that took us out to see whales in the ocean! It was super cool because I never saw whales up close before. Other things we did in Boston was go to an aquarium and go on tours around town, which had a lot of revolutionary war and colonial American stuff. It was awesome! Then the last part of the trip was going to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, which is a civil war battlefield and the turning point of the war. It had a lot of cool history there too! I just got back from my long trip today, and even though I had a lot of fun while I was gone, I'm happy to be home! So what did you do so far during the summer?
