While Daddy was off fishing and spending the day with his brother, my parents and I took the girls up to Gettysburg to visit. I have always loved going there, and there's so much to see you can't possibly fit it all into one day. This morning it was so nice to wake up to these fresh peaches..... Yum!
Then we enjoyed watching the hummingbirds on the deck. These little guys are so quick but we did manage to capture them on the feeder. My parents have trumpets vines growing up their fence and the hummingbirds are always busily buzzing to and fro. :-)
In the morning before we left Jerry and my Dad were working on a Adirondack, or lean to but more durable to build a cooking area in for the outdoors. But my Dad doesn't like his picture on the internet so you'll have to use your imagination... LOL I did however manage to capture this picture of Hayley and Sally looking like she's laughing in the background. LOL I mentioned in a previous post my parents have 5 acres to explore, the girls love to visit!
Then off to Friendlys for lunch and to the Battlefield to walk it all off. :-) It didn't rain, but it was overcast all day so I apologize for the dreary pictures. Did you know Gettysburg is one of the most haunted battlefields in the United states?
This is the eternal flame that burns, it stands for eternal peace with the hopes of no more wars. Wouldn't this truly be a blessing if it could happen?
Here is a better shot of the flame.
Yes, Charissa the American Girl doll came with us today, Hayley didn't want her to feel left out, as Lanie is going to American Girl next Sat.! We can't wait. :-)
The view from where we were standing.
I LOVE this shot of Kathleen!
Love this shot of Hayley, she's becoming so grown up.
This was at the bottom of the monument but I had to include it. The loyalties of the dogs back then were incredible, and of course that still holds true today, probably why I love them so much!
This was Dwight Eisenhower's farm.
Getting ready to set the cannons off!
View from little round top.
This area was the extreme left of Union Army, the anchor of the line.
This was looking out of the monument on little round top.
This is a picture of what it looked like after the battle.
Couldn't resist this shot!
Then we have a little girl who ate too many blue M&M's and ended up hyper with a blue tongue! LOL
We had a great time, and this is just a few of the many pictures we took.
Hope to get some pictures from Jerry tomorrow of his cat fishing trip on the Susquehanna river. :-)
