Not knowing when we'd be out east again, we wanted to make a trek up north to New York - where we lived for a year. But especially where Jonas was born! :) So we decided to drive the 5 hours there and stay for a couple of nights.
On our way to NY we stopped in Hershey, PA and visited the Chocolate factory. We took a tour, got a free chocolate bar, got free pudding, and had a good time!
That night we drove around, got some dinner, went to a park near our old home (where Miles had once played and swung on the swings), went to the mall to get some Gertrude Hawks chocolate (yes, more chocolate, but this place was somewhere that Ben and I would go and so we just had to experience it again), and then we went to our favorite grocery store - Wegmans. It's just a nice store and we always loved going there while we lived in NY.
Then we went and drove by our old home. We wanted to take some pictures and so Ben went to knock on the door to let them know what we wanted to do. The owner, Bill, totally remembered Ben (Bill was the guy that bought the house from us!) and that he was an OR nurse, etc., etc. We were invited into his/our old home and had a delightful tour! My curtains made by me and my sister were still hanging up on the windows! It was so fun and the kids loved it - especially Jonas. :)
After our delightful visit to 127 Harrington we went to the Restoration of the Priesthood site. It's super nice and we had a good visit! When we were there 10 years ago there was hardly anything at the site - just a marker or two. Now it's a whole site with many places and things to see and visit.
Some friends from our ward invited us over to diner on Sunday and we all had a good evening at the Espositos!
I went on a run in the fog and it was super awesome. Then we left NY and headed to Gettysburg . . .
