While the man had to work, I got to tag along with them on some touristy adventures. Below is a recap of what we have done this week:
Saturday: Shady Maple Smorgasbord
It is basically a boss buffet (over 100 feet long!) that will fill you up so much that you won't need to eat for the rest of the day!
They also have a fun gift shop, hence where Rachel turned into a safari leader who caught a Annmarie-turned-monkey
|Don't judge us!|
We all ventured to Hershey Park to take a tour of the Hershey Factory, omnom on chocolate, and ride some boss roller coasters. Besides being a wee bit warm, it was a blast!
|Aw, nice shot Rachel!|
|The man and I, a little disheveled from the roller coasters|
While Brad worked, Jon and Rachel let me tag along to Gettysburg. Wow was it pretty! And crazy to think about how many men trudged over the hilly areas and fought to the death for what they believed was right. Crazy to think about.
|One of the bazillion memorials at Gettysburg|
|An amazing view we got from the top of a super-tall observation tower...that had no elevator option...ow my quads.,,but worth it.|
|This girls with a canon...pretty boss, eh?|
|Another addition to my growing cookbook collection|
Tuesday: Explore Lititz, the coolest small town in America
Jon, Rachel and I explored the next town over from us, which was voted the coolest small town in America! They also are known for Wilbur's Chocolate, the place where Milton Hershey apprenticed and is said to have stolen the idea for Hershey's Kisses from!
|Hershey, you are an imposter! These Buds were even tastier than your kisses!|
|Rachel and I with our finished product. And boy were they good!|
King of Prussia mall is the biggest mall on the east coast, so we had to check it out! It was full of many stores that I feel like I'm too poor to even step into ($1,000 scarf at Louis Vutton?), but also a lot of fun stores that were more in our price range and just plain fun to look at.
|I created a Lego-me at the Lego store!|
|Chick-filet is one of my favorite fast food places. That chicken is divine!|
Jon and Rachel are off gallivanting in NYC today. I'm so excited for them! And as for me, I'm content catching up on laundry and getting this house a little bit more in order. Plus I would feel just wrong seeing NYC for the first time without the man.
Hope everyone is having even half as fun of a week as I am!
Love and blessings,
P.S. And here is just another view from our apartment. Ah God is great!
|I hope this view never gets old.|
