As you know, my sisters came for a visit. They came to celebrate the baptism of one special little lady.
I am so excited to tell you all about it.
…But before I get to that, I have to share what a fun week we had. I am thankful for sisters, cousins, and time to share with them.
While they were here, we just had to take advantage of some of the fun things PA has to offer.
Some of you may recognize a few of these photos from Instagram; if you follow me.
On that note: I am using my iphone more for photos. It is so convenient, but not necessarily the quality that I love. However, it captures the moment. And I love sharing life with you on Instagram. It’s like a quick way to blog.
Here is our week in pictures from my awesome camera, and my iphone:
Kids wake right up and get to playing. Even though one little one didn’t get to my house until 3am.
We took the kids to the park to play and have lunch.
I took the girls to Eastern Market; a fun farmers market that happens all year round. It is open every Friday; I buy all my produce here.
My sisters agreed to watch our kiddos while Jonathan and I went to a concert. Our second concert this week. We went to Luke Bryan just 3 days previous.
The kids piled up on the couch and watched a movie while we were gone. AWE!

Back at the concert: Justin Moore, “If heaven wasn’t so far away.” This song was played during my Grandpa’s funeral video. Miss you Grandpa.
One of my favorites: Eric Church. Springsteen. “Funny how a melody sounds like a memory.” I love how music can recall a memory.
..and always a beautiful sight when the audience pulls out their cell phones.
Thanks again Kristin and Lindsay. It was so nice to get away and know our kids were being loved on by their aunties.
Saturday, it was the whoopie pie festival.
Complete with a whoopie pie launch, and YES!! those are real whoopie pies that they are launching. Oh, and that guy… yes… he is MY husband. Isn’t he Hunky?
157 flavors of whoopie pies to choose from.
We bought a few to try.
Strasburg; which is Amish country.
Old time Icecream shoppe…
…when a Amish buggy pulled up.
We enjoyed icecream…
…Luke slept in the car.
Then we toured Amish country. This is one of their schoolhouses.

Another concert. This time Jonathan watched the kids, and I went with my sisters. Yes! I am a concert junkie.
A little Lauren Alaina? She was great. This is my third time seeing her this year. I loved it. We had a great time and even enjoyed sharing a red velvet funnel cake. Love my sisters.
Paulos farm; which had fun FREE things for the kids to do.
They loved feeding the animals.
I was dead set on feeding a baby goat that was being bullied by a bigger goat.
I finally succeeded.
The kids just really enjoyed being together
….and I think that is what it is all about.
Sweet Frog frozen yogurt for FHE. Everyone loves this place.
Oh, and the FROG in Sweet Frog stands for; fully rely on God. Love it!
We also did a little Christmas shopping. I am so excited about what I found. Plus, I really love shopping with my sisters. It is what I miss most about being away from them. We all love a good deal.
It was a great weekend.
Thanks Kristin and Lindsay for sharing the week with us. The only thing I wish I had a picture of; a picture of the 3 of us together.
