DC, Part 2

After spending a few days in the district, we headed up to Myerstown, Pennsylvania. Now, if you're wondering where Myerstown actually is, don't worry, I didn't know either. But I was pleasantly surprised to learn it's situated near some of Pennsylvania's finest cities, Hershey and the one and only Intercourse.

If you're ever questioning your maturity level, just take a drive through Intercourse, and I'm sure your true colors will shine. Ours sure did.

The purpose behind this trip was to visit John's brother's family who, just days before, moved into this small but quaint little place known as Myerstown. It was so great to visit more family on this trip, and to know that for the next 10 years, we'll have family on the east coast. I hope they don't get sick of us visiting, because I have a feeling that wasn't the last time they'll be seeing us out there.

Of course, we had to visit the infamous Intercourse, land of the Amish while we were there.

The petting zoo and pony rides for the kids...

And then we stuffed our faces with food from Good N' Plenty.
Stretchy pants not required, but highly recommended when eating here.

It was a short few days hanging out with the Lovells, but we had a blast. I feel so lucky knowing I married into such a great family. My in-laws rock, all of them!

And then it was back down to DC to finish out out trip, but not before I met up with an old college roommate and her new little addition. Thanks Steph for a fabulous afternoon in Philly, I just love you!

I didn't realize it was the JEFF LOVELL family that moved to Penn! I would have had you say hi to them for me! Their kids are so cute! And I'm jealous you saw Steph! She looks so cute and so does baby Healy!

NO way! I've always wanted to visit an Amish community & make good use of my stretchy pants. :)

I always enjoy your blog! And random-I did Washington Seminar with Stephanie.

Amen to it being a blessing to have married into this family--it is awesome! And just so you know, you are more than welcome to come as often as you want. We'll let you know if we ever get sick of it ; ) (not going to happen!).
