My 5th Blogversary

Wow hard to believe it was five years ago I started this blog, but I did start with my first post on July 13, 2009. I had been a blog helper for the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society Blog for a while before then, but I decided I wanted my own blog for my family and other posts that interested me.
To see the previous Blogversary Posts clock here  
This year I became a helper on the new Washington State Genealogical Society Blog  so now I have two of my own blogs and help out on two others.
I did not post as many articles here as I did the previous three years, but I actually posted more this year than I have ever done before. I started a new blog a little over a year ago, posting some of the obits I have collected over the years, it is still a work in progress. You can see my new blog Early Spokane Obits and More here. I also have been posting other interesting articles from the pages that contain these obits.
My series of articles on the 1962 Seattle Worlds Fair seem to be my most popular posts this year, although a few more have been pretty popular also, like the 2012 Swimsuit Issue of the Carnival of Genealogy, the Carnival Of Genealogy Scrapbooking is the most popular this year.

Saturday Night Fun Vacations

Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):

1) It's summertime in the Northern hemisphere, and time for summer vacations for many people.  

2)  Tell us about a memorable summer vacation when you were a child.  What are your memories of summer vacations with your family?  Did you travel?  How?  Did you visit extended family?  Who?

Well I don't remember the first vacation my parents took my sister and me, don't even know where they went. I was 2 and my sister was 4. She sat in the back seat reading comic books, when she finished with a page she tore it off and threw it out the window.
We did not take many vacations when I was young, pop only got a week vacation so we never went far. In 1962 we all went to the Seattle Worlds Fair. I have done 18 blog posts on the Seattle Worlds Fair mostly on items from the scrapbook my mom kept, but several photos I took while we were at the fair. We had a neighbor from Spokane that had moved to Snohomish County a few years before the fair so we stayed with them while we were there. Later on my parents bought a travel trailer and we went on several vacations, Yellowstone, Glacier Park, Crater Lake, etc., and many times to the coast at Ocean Shores,
