Our family is trying really hard to live it up here in the East.
Our time here is short; so it’s important that we make the most of it.
There is so much to see and do, so we are trying to do as much as we can.
Here are a few things we have enjoyed since we have been here.
I am in love with Strasburg in Lancaster county. It is the cutest little town. We stumbled on this neat little band concert one evening; so charming.
It is also Amish Country.
It is fun to drive around this town full of old charm.
It has a great railroad that you can ride. We are hoping to make time for this.
We enjoyed a Saturday in Hershey, at Chocolate World.
The kids had so much fun taking the tour, I think we did it 3 or 4 times.
It was fun to hear all about how the city of Hershey was made, and how Hershey chocolate came to be.
We really wanted to take the kids to Hershey Park. The more we read about it, it seemed like the kids wouldn’t be able to ride a lot of the rides because of their height. We opted to take a trip to Lancaster over Labor Day weekend.
We stayed in a Hotel, which is magical for a child…
…and did what every good set of parents would do:
We let them jump on the bed.
The next morning, we took the kids to Dutch Wonderland. Which is an amusement park that is well-suited to our kids ages.
We had a blast. I love hanging out as a family.
As you all know, our family loves baseball.
We had to make sure we made it to an Orioles game while we were here.
Camden Yards is really neat. The kids loved being at the ballpark.
We have also enjoyed being a part of a soccer team. It is nice to be a part of something after only a few months of being here.
Jex and Stella have a chance to run around and play with all their friends from church, and it makes them so Happy.
What else I love about PA:
the fall leaves on all the old established trees in these historic neighborhoods
roadside stands and farmers markets everywhere
What I hope to visit before we move:
New York City
I am grateful for opportunities to experience new things.
It is never easy to move to a new place, but I enjoying finding the good in life and new places.
