1: EMBARKING ON A ONCE IN A LIFETIME | The first stop on our road trip: a historical site... | June 17, 2012 Dear Stanley, On the first day of our road trip, we went through North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and have stopped in the historic town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania for the night. We just checked-in to our hotel and we are starving! Time to grab a very late lunch before we go exploring... We miss you! XOXOXO

2: After a long day's drive, we were starving. We ate at The Pike restaurant, located next to our hotel. After filling our tummies, we were ready to explore the town. (Below: Megan & J.D. didn't want their pictures taken, but Sara didn't mind.)


4: A HISTORICAL SITE | The Battle @ Gettysburg took place July 1-3, 1863 and is one of the most famous battles of the Civil War.

9: History cannot give us a program for the future, but it can give us a fuller understanding of ourselves, and of our common humanity, so that we can better face the future. ROBERT PENN WARREN


12: We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. ABRAHAM LINCOLN

14: Address delivered by Abraham Lincoln at the dedication of the cemetery at Gettysburg.

17: “It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” Ernest Hemingway

19: Taking a break from exploring downtown Gettysburg to enjoy some delicious Italian ice

20: We had a great time visiting the town of Gettysburg

21: After spending the afternoon and early evening exploring Gettysburg, it was time to call it a night. We head to Hershey, PA in the morning. Megan, J.D & Sara will be dreaming of chocolate!
