they keep records of "most finger sandwiches

The beach isn't travel. It's vacation.
For me, the ultimate is Hotel Esencia
on Mexico's Riviera Maya [see page 66].
You get ocean, jungle, Mayan tradition
and history, style, and incredible food.
Melissa: Sometimes it's easier splitting
up the group. This summer, Joshua needs
to be in Israel and our son is at skateboard
camp, so my daughter and I will spend time
in France, seeing art and doing motherdaughter things.
Joshua: My son loves soccer, and when
we were in England, Nancy arranged for
us to see a Tottenham Hotspur match.

Melissa: I'm a decide-what-you'll-wear-onthe-other-end traveler, which humiliates our

We'll see Into the Woods this summer: The
shows start before sundown, and you sit outside and watch the stars come out. It's magical.
Melissa: India is on our empty-nest vacation list. We want to go back to Amsterdam,
even if it's just to see the flowers. Norway.
And we haven't been to Italy since our honeymoon, and would love to re-create it.
