What I Did on My Summer Vacation

Twenty-three years ago this summer, Rachael and I took our first family beach vacation to Charleston, South Carolina. We had only one infant son at the time, and we had no inkling of the long-standing tradition we were starting. Since then, we’ve skipped the beach just once when we spent our vacation money to attend […]
