Hi all! Sorry for not visiting anyone's blogs the past two weeks but we were out of town visiting our grandbabies! I will be catching up with stuff because I had a 'Pennsylvania Bucket List' and we managed to hit all of it which was awesome! We had a blast.
Just some highlights for now:
Raymondskill Falls, Pocono Mtns, PA
Bushkill Falls "The Niagara of Pennsylvania"
Hershey, PA. This place is seriously like going through Willie Wonka's factory.
Thought it was important to visit Gettysburg at least once in our lives.
American kitsch at it's finest. I cannot recommend Mister Ed's Elephant Museum & Candy Emporium enough. Located in Orrtanna, PA, this is well worth a visit. It's about 30 minutes due west of Gettysburg. Full disclosure: It's across the street from an old Mail Pouch Tobacco barn. When I did google streetview of the barn, prior to our trip, I swung the camera around and saw this directly across the street and made a written note to be sure and stop here as well. Easily one of the highlights of the entire trip.
Arriving to both boys wearing the 'My Nonna Loves Me' shirts I got them a month or so ago.
Val arrived in OH a few days before we did and she went home earlier too.
Trip to Jungle Jim's
Brothers bonding in Olive Garden
Casi's 27th birthday
Lots and lots of cuddling with this precious nugget.
Huge and awesome indoor flea market next to the casino.
Me loving on Mark
GAH! Cutest. Baby. EVER!!!!!!!
Girls day out, to Jungle Jim's and the casino.
I love it when the three of us go out! Jeff & Russell babysat the boys at the apartment while we were out galavanting around. When we got back, we all went out to dinner.
Babby Mark turned 5 months old.
Dale's cheeks are flushed cause he was sick. We babysat both boys that afternoon so Casi & Jeff could finally have some alone time out of the house.
Mark had his very first cereal.
Grumpa loving on Mark.
The new Tappan Zee Bridge at sunset the day we drove back.
We were gone for 8 days and it was really great to get home even though we miss the kids like crazy!
