We stayed with my aunt and uncle in the area of PA where I'm originally from. Straight off the turnpike I knew I was home.
And the evening view at my aunt and uncle's was as stunning as always.
I am from a tiny town right next to Valley Forge. I can't even tell you how many times I've been to and through the park. But, we still stop every time we go up there. And my kids still love walking around and looking at all the monuments as much as ever.
But then someone forgot to tell Mother Nature it was spring and we woke the next morning to this view.
The views from the docks behind our hotel were gorgeous.
The Empire State Building is still tall.
And Lady Liberty is still standing.
Sadly, the Easter Island Head did not ask us for gum.
Like I said, tons of fun all around. Since we skipped Philly, I think we may head back this summer sometime, when there will be no chance of snow (then again, the way this year has gone...).
Today, the lovely and gracious Carol Kilgore is hosting me on her blog, Under The Tiki Hut. I'd love for you to swing by and say hello.
