It’s summertime!

KidsPost readers are leaving town, but they are taking their favorite newspaper section along for the ride. These kids had water-filled vacations — one near and one far.

If you want to be a part of “The Summer of KidsPost,” here’s all you have to do:

●Go on vacation. It can be someplace as exotic as Bora Bora (find that on a map!) or as simple as a nearby water park.

●Take a copy of KidsPost with you. It can be from any day.

●Get someone to take a picture of you (and siblings, cousins, grandparents) holding KidsPost.

●Have one of your parents send it to us at or KidsPost, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071. For e-mail, put “Summer of KidsPost” in the subject line.

●Include the full names, ages and home towns of everyone in the photo. Also write a sentence or two about what made your vacation special. We will publish pictures in the newspaper and on this summer.

●Have fun and keep reading Kids­Post!
