Michael "The Albatross" Gross (1984)

Having a last name like Gross can really be bad. However, it always makes you feel better when a World-class athlete shares your name. West German Michael Gross was nicknamed "The Albatross" because of his massive wingspan (2.13m, which is equivalent to nearly 7ft). I kept this picture on my wall for nearly a decade!

Family Trip To The Museum (2009)

This summer, the four of us took a trip to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington DC.  It's a MASSIVE building and fascinating trip.  We spent more than three hours there and still didn't see everything.  We missed the exhibit on First Ladies, but in all honesty, who cares about First Ladies?

Throughout the museum were stations where you can stamp/mark your map along the way.   We found 'em all!
