There aren't four corners of the globe, but it sure seems that our readers have gone to some pretty interesting (and in some cases far-flung) places on vacation this summer. We feel as if we've been there, too, in part because you've taken KidsPost with you.
It's not too late to take part in the Summer of KidsPost. Just take your favorite page of the newspaper (you know the one we're talking about) with you on vacation in August. Take a picture of yourself holding it and send it to us. We'll be publishing more pictures throughout the month and will have another page of pictures as the summer winds down.
Send your pictures to Summer of KidsPost, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071. Or e-mail us (with "Summer of KidsPost" in the subject line) at email@example.com. Be sure to include where you are and the names and ages of everyone in the picture, plus your address and phone number.
1. What a treat: Simon and Max Honigmann, 8 and 10, of Severna Park enjoy gelato (an Italian sherbet) at St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City. They had just climbed 300 steps and were enjoying a snack before climbing more steps to the dome of the church.
2. Backpacking bros: Hunter and Holden Hegmann, 11 and 9, of Poolesville go backpacking in the Dolly Sods Wilderness Area in West Virginia each year. This year, they also took along KidsPost and their dog.
3. Take a hike: Sisters Emily and Nicole Davies, 7 and 5, of Washington took KidsPost on their family hike to the Rose River Falls in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.
4. Less than perfect: Zane Chesivoir, 10, of Bethesda broke his leg in June, meaning exotic trips were out for him. At least he'll always have KidsPost.
5. Four more years: The Rico sisters of Rockville, Madeline, 10, and Mariel, 13, went to Baltimore's Inner Harbor. The girls say this is their fourth year of taking KidsPost on vacation.
6. Not the Potomac: Brendan McMahon, 11, of Woodbine, Maryland, explains KidsPost to gondolier Hendrik Romano on the famous canals of Venice, Italy.
