Getaway (Part 1).....

Last week, we were able to get away for a couple of days. We drove the 31/2 hours down to Lancaster, PA, and had a very relaxing time. We spent the first day shopping at the many outlets and malls around the area. It was nice to find some great deals at some stores we don't have in our little town!

The next day we headed to Strasburg, PA which was about 10 minutes from our motel. It is a quaint Pennsylvania town known for it's historic trains.

Before boarding the train, we had to try out some of the other modes of transportation on display around the station.....

Boarding this old train felt like we were stepping back in time 100 years....

The scenery was just absolutely beautiful....


It was neat to see the huge Amish farms along the way......
