Today and tomorrow we're traveling through Pennsylvania. We decided to take a couple of days driving through because we didn't want to rush through Lancaster County and we also want to stop in Gettysburg tomorrow.
I snapped this picture through the window of the car, so it isn't very clear. It was taken on one of the backroads of Lancaster, a boy who looked to be a teenager at the reins of the six mules, hauling a wagon loaded with bales of hay. It was so exciting to see! The farms in Lancaster are so beautiful, with huge barns and silos. The Amish drive their buggies along the side of the road. We loved seeing the little children, the girls in bonnets and the boys in straw hats, peeking out of the back of the buggy windows.
It was a good day. We stopped at some of the Amish shops and a farm where Emily got to feed some of the animals. We got to our hotel late in the afternoon and all took naps before going to dinner. We walked to a nearby restaurant and then took a short walk around some shops before coming back to our room. The weather for this trip has been so beautiful. Today, the temps are in the low 80s, the humidity is low and the skies are blue. Tomorrow -- onward to Gettysburg!
