PA trip in photos

Vacations go by too fast. Back to work tomorrow, back to reality. Also back to exercising. I'm a little porker right now, oink oink. Anyways I'll start the pics out with my first day there. Saw the family first of course. I can't believe how quickly Patricia is moving around, last time I saw her she was crawling around, now she's walking full tilt :)

Thursday we went bike riding on the D&L Trail along Lehigh Canal.  We only did a small portion of the trail from Easton to Bethlehem, about 33 miles roundtrip.  It was very scenic.  It thunderstormed a bit but we waited it out under a bridge. 

Thursday night we went to Musikfest.  Mike has been telling me about it since we met so it was nice to finally see what it was all about.  Kinda reminded me of the NC state fair except no rides and lots more music.  Saw a few good bands, enjoyed some good brews and watching interesting ppl.

Friday we didn't do that much, ran some errands, it rained a lot.  I had an upset tummy from all that greasy food I had been eating.  That night we saw Total Recall.  It was actually pretty good.

Saturday morning I watched the baby so Analia and Dan could go in service. That afternoon me and Analia had our nails done and had some girl time.  Fun times.  Sunday was the big bbq blowout.  It was nice to see old friends and make new ones.

Monday we were supposed to come straight home but we decided to stop at the Yuengling Brewery for a free tour and free beer samples ;) by the time we left Pottsville (name of the town, I'm not making it up) it was already 4.  As we were about to pass Hershey PA, Mike said lets go to Hershey Park.  I was like, welllll then he called them and after 5:00 tix are only $20 a person.  So you can't argue with those prices.  We went on at least 5 roller coasters, honestly I lost count but it was really fun.  And of course we rode their newest roller coaster, SkyRush, so much fun!  So now, its Tuesday night and tomorrow is work, so all good things must come to an end.  Till our next vacay :)

pa trip '12

I've only been in pa for one full day but we did alot yesterday. Took lots of pics too ;) went on a really nice bike ride and then came home and showered up and went to Musikfest. That was pretty cool, lots of bands, food and beer. I could only drink one 24oz beer I don't know how ppl can drink more than that. Was starving when we got there so ate the first thing I saw, chicken tenders. Best ever haha! Also managed to find some perogies but they always fry them up here instead of boiling them but beggars can't be choosers. Here's some picsand I'll let u know how the rest of the trip goes. We should be going to the yuengling factory today :)
