Okaaaay… So it’s not going to be a short post “one day at a time,” it’s going to be a short post every two days, since MailChimp is being more Chimp and less Mail, and is not letting me send all the notifications I want to, only every other day. That’s why you got two posts at a whack, by mistake. Now we will space them and keep the Chimp happy. If this didn’t bother anyone but me, carry on and forget that I said this. Thank you.
Over Easter weekend, my family vacationed in Pittsburgh. Many happy or honest things could be said about that, including how much I regretted including the words “vacation” and “family” in the same game plan.
I am mostly kidding. But only mostly.
Hoteling with children is just not as ideal as you would think. Teenagers are quite pleasant – they sleep in, they’re up for fun, they try out the coffee bar downstairs and tell you what’s good. But mix in noisy and wakeful preschoolers, particularly a small, charming, and slightly feral six-year-old child from another mother, and you will certainly be pulling out your hair in clumps.
But that is not my story for today. Today, I wanted to show you that on the way home, we stopped at Harmony, PA, home of the Harmonist sect for ten years in the early 1800’s, and afterward home to a Mennonite colony. We had to cut our visit short due to rain and bum schedules, but we fully intend to return. There is a coffee shop that’s calling my name, and an unmarked grave yard that gave me the heebie-jeebies.
What I had the most fun with in our short stop was photographing textures. Look at these…
We’ll be returning to Harmony. That is, in every way.
And when we go, I’ll show you more.
Where did you travel to last? I’d love some good recommendations for family trips this summer.
