Thanks so much again

Had an awesome experience. We had the pleasure of touring with #TeamNick. The sites and the knowledge was all amazing. The part that got me the most is when we returned to our hotel room, my Grandson TJ who was turning six. This trip was for him. I could hear him in the shower singing... all of a sudden he sings out #TEAMNICK Gotta love it!❤
