our first stop was to gettysburg, pennsylvania. we did a lot of driving on this trip, but it was all worth it. i was excited to go here mostly because i knew how excited g would be and let me tell you, he was like a kid in a candy shop the entire day. it was freezing, but the views and the gorgeous sites made it all worth it. i think g would say this was one of his favorite days of the trip. and it got even better, because after gettysburg, we drove to intercourse, pennsylvania to make friends with the amish, which is another post for another time.
honestly, dc was one of my favorite trips i've ever been on. loved being on the east coast, loved the changing leaves everywhere, loved all the 7-11 hot chocolate i drank and loved having so much alone time with my husband. and speaking of that husband, i didn't even know that he knew how to use our camera until this trip. he usually has zero interest in photographing anything and rolls his eyes when i ask him to pose for me, but what do you know, get him to a place that he is excited about and suddenly i have 8 million pictures of me looking at a tree.
ps. sorry about the no caps phase i am in. i am writing so many papers for school right now that when it's time to blog, i rebel & ignore punctuation & grammar. i'm hard core like that.
