Vacation...What We've Done So Far

Here are some pics since flying into Philly on Friday night/Saturday morning.

Jere behind the wheel of his first rental car. He turned 25 on Friday and rented a car at 2:30am Saturday!

This is our rental car. A Nissan Altima. It has a button to start the car! You can just keep the key in your pocket because of the RFID signal. CRAZY!

There were silos and corn all over the place, it was very fun to see farm land in the towns we were driving through. We went to a farmers market in Bird of Hand, PA (we bought some homemade bread and cin. rolls and a cookbook with easy recipes!). The scenery and landscape was really beatiful and the weather was great!

Amish people really interest me for some reason. While driving we saw an Amish man plowing with his horses. It's mind boggling to me to see that... I mean when they want to travel do they ride in their buggies? Do they break down and fly? It would be interesting to visit an Amish family and see how they live.

Real Amish Buggy.

The next few pictures are of sweet houses that I saw while driving. I LOVE all the old houses!

This is a covered bridge we found. Jere took some pretty nice pictures.

We took a little side trip to Cunningham Falls, bu the falls were mostly dry because they haven't had much rain around this area lately. Supposedly it's supposed to rain all the rest of the week. I just love the moss and woods, it's so great to be back in the area where I grew up.

So far we have flown into Philly, driven to Bird in Hand, PA to visit the farmers market, visited Gettysburg, stopped by a state park, gone to dinner at "Cindy Dees" (a restaurant I remember from childhood) and visited Harpers Ferry in the dark. We had such a good time seeing all the scenery and spending time with each other.

I believe Jere put ALL of our pictures on FLICKR if you would like to see more.

Wow, that looks like a lot of fun. I love those old houses too - they are huge! It is interesting to see Amish people, it's weird to think they actually live without electricity and such. Hope you have a lot of fun!
