We headed up to the Berkshires--one of our favorite quick vacation spots. I think this has been the fourth year we've visited. It's a perfect place to escape to the outdoors, and the scenery is breathtaking--very New England. One day our goal was to see as many waterfalls as possible. With the driving and hiking, we were able to see three waterfalls. The favorite part of the vacation for the kids: swimming at the hotel. And I found a tick burrowing in my leg. That was not pleasant.
