Road Trip

Last Saturday I went on a road trip with two friends to meet another friend. We had an awesome time. Here's some pictures of our adventure:

Here's my friend driving her car. She's my best friend in all this world, but she has the worst sense of direction of anyone I know with the exception of my youngest daughter. We always get lost and have a lot of turn arounds to find our way to where we really want to be. But, we have a wonderful time together, a lot of laughs. And with us getting lost and turning around all the time, we find and discover a lot of things and places that we probably wouldn't have found otherwise.

This past Saturday, we found a place where there is duckpin bowling. I didn't think there was even duckpin bowling in PA. I've only ever heard of this in MD where I grew up. Maybe sometime we'll take another road trip and try this out. Although, I don't know--my high score in bowling is 11!! And I wonder why no one never wanted me on their team.

We finally found our other friend in Hummelstown after calling her for more explicit directions. She knows of this wonderful little yarn shop--you know I had to stop there!

This is a really nice yarn shop, nice helpful owner, and the prices were reasonable. I was looking for yarn for my SAL, and I decided on this:
As you can see, it's called Maizy. It's really soft, a deep rose color. The really awesome thing about this is that it's made with 82% corn fiber and 18% elastic--no baggy socks!!

This shop also takes items on consignment....hmmmmm.....something to think about!!

From there, we went to lunch at The Soda Jerk Diner--a really cool 50's diner--just like being back home in mom's kitchen when I was a little girl. I wanted to take a picture of the absolutely huge ice cream cone they have on top of the building, but the sun was just too bright, and I couldn't see anything at all to take the picture--maybe another time!!

Then on to Hershey to Chocolate World. I haven't been there in ages. Here are some sights from Chocolate World:

What?? Singing cows??

Lots and lots of peanut butter cups!! Took this one for my son
who loves peanut butter cups!!

So, this was my day last Saturday--a whole lot of fun with fun loving people. Sometimes I just wish days like this could never end!

K--that's all for a while!!
