Day trip to Gettysburg


Camaron's mom came to visit over the weekend. While she was here, she stayed one night in Gettysburg, PA (when you're given a free room at a fancy lodge in Gettysburg, you just don't pass that up). We decided to be adventurers and drive up for a day to explore and spend some time with the kids' grandma. We had rented a car, so it was exciting to not be on a bus and to eat road trip snacks. The drive was beautiful -which was extra lucky, because we accidentally took a wrong turn and our 1.5 hour drive accidentally turned into a 3 hour drive. We got to drive through tiny farm towns engulfed in fall foliage, saw where Abe gave the Gettysburg address, and ate at Lincoln's Diner. And that was about it. Our trip was pretty short with our detour getting there and daylight savings making the sunset around 4:30. But even with it being short, it was such a fun little day trip. I would love to be able to go back again someday and spend more time exploring and seeing more of Gettysburg. And we're definitely bringing Fox's pacifier next time, just for the long drive -exceptionally cranky, lack-of-nap ride home.
