Weekend Trip: Lancaster, Pennsylvania Part 1

Tom and I were joined by our friend Troy for a quick overnight trip to Amish Country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. We've never been and planned it for a couple of weeks.  Over the next couple of days I"ll be presenting pictures from the trip - yes, we drove around a LOT so there are pictures of several different places.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
