Yea! We are one step closer to summer vacation! But do you think we have enough information to convince my mom to change her mind to Arkansas? What makes Garland County so special?  Why did we choose Ron Coleman's Crystal Mine?

Today I overheard my mom and dad talking about our summer vacation. They are still Aquariumarguing about where we are going to go.  Mom still wants to go to Utah and dad still wants to go to Arkansas.  I really want to go to Arkansas, too.  We must be missing something, but what?
