ALL expenses are paid. If we drive, she gives us each a gas card. If we fly, she buys our tickets. Hotels are paid for or she rents a huge house for us to stay in. If we need rental cars, she pays. On top of all that she gives us EACH spending money usually $100.
This year we are taking an auto train out of Sanford, Florida and arriving in Stockton, Virginia. I'm not to thrilled about taking the auto train with an 8 month old, but it will be an experience.
We are staying in Oakton, Virginia about 15 minutes from Washington, D.C. She rented a 7,500 square foot house (yes, you read that right, 7,500 HOLY CRAP.) It's a 5 bedroom 5.5 bath house. Here are some pictures I stole from the rental website.

The auto train is a 17 hour ride. Blah. I shouldn't complain because this is all paid for, but I would just rather fly!
This is the "dining room" of the train. All meals are included.
We are loading our cars on the train too.
And this would be the rooms we sleep in for the night.
I've read the reviews and everyone says it's wonderful & the food is delish. I hope they're right!
For whoever has been to DC what are the "must sees?" I'm stoked for this trip! Hell, I'm stoked every year we go somewhere different!
