Sometime during the summer, Inland Empire Girl gave us this sibling assignment.
Share a memorable family vacation memory that involved all three of us.
One of my memories is of a trip IEG, PKR and I took to
PKR and I were living in
IEG lived in
It was toward the end of July, as we traveled from the Tri-Cities area of
