August 24: We left my parent's home in Bethany Beach, Del. to enjoy a day back home in Gaithersburg, Maryland... I took my kids around to the places where I grew up. I showed them the first court where I began my love affair with the sport of tennis 32 years ago. We ate a Chinese lunch at Wok Express in Montgomery Village Center... that restaurant has been there forever. Good Food always!
In the afternoon, I took the kids to our old neighborhood in Potomac Falls, Virginia. We made a surprise visit upon her best friend, Alma. They shared 4 hours of story telling about "Maya's California Adventure." Amazing how grown-up Alma seems since we left... Girls do mature faster than boys. Super smart kid!
Our last stop before moving on to Philadelphia for my wife's cousins wedding was a stop at Tyson's Corner Mall. Wow, they've expanded... It's a mega mall now! You could spend an entire day in that place... new food courts and theaters and a Barnes and Noble! Even I might shop there!
We found 69 cents in the form of a quarter, 3 dimes, a nickel and 9 pennies in this day's journey.
