I think you can cross off a few more, my memory on you is LONG. #21 pillow fight - do you not remember sleeping in the same room with Megan and Lauren for MANY years. #24 snow fort - do you not remember the winter of 1989. #53 play in the mud - have you forgotten girl's camp the year you were about 13 and the 4 inches of mud left behind in the bathtub when you got home. I would pass on #69 as we know what the Irish REALLY do on the Blarney Stone - nasty! I would also pass on #96 as no one in their right mind swims in the Great Salt Lake. #109 you will never know how much I love you and Megan for giving your sister a second chance with completely open hearts. Mom

You also might consider "seeing the Statue of Liberty" as calling it done, I don't think they allow you to climb to the top anymore, at least they stopped it for awhile after 9/11. Or just go to the platform. I think you have a pretty long list already, but do you ever want to see the Great Wall of China and/or the Taj Mahal? Mark wants to see Hiroshima but that's not on my list. An african safari is on mine.
