My dad grew up in New Market, New Hampshire (that's him with his sister and mom).
He left when he was 18, and if I remember correctly, he's only been home twice since then.
My sister and I have been trying to talk him into making a trip back to New Market with us for years now - just to see where he grew up and to meet family we've never met before, and he finally agreed.
He said it will be the last trip he ever makes home.
So my dad and I fly to Seattle tomorrow to meet up with my sister, and from there, we all catch a red-eye flight to Boston.
Seven days with my dad and my sister.
See you when I get back.
