PerryDell Farm

Heather called Friday night to see if we wanted to do something fun with the girls on Saturday.  We thought about several options but since Daddy had to go work on the apartments for a few hours we decided on something close.  We picked PerryDell Farm.  We had never been there before and the girls had never been close to moos.

This dairy is family owned and operated.  It was bought in 1923 by Howard Perry.  It was taken over by his two sons, George and Roger, who started bottling their milk.  It is now run by George’s 3 sons.  All the family pitches in on the farm and it supports 4 families.  For more information follow the link below.

Rocky Ridge County Park

We decided to go hike one of the many trails at Rocky Ridge County Park not far from where our kids live.  This was the girls’ first hike. Daddy brought their wagon for if they got tired.

First thing they saw really interesting was some Daddy Long Legs on a post.  They love itsy bitsy.

Downtown York, PA

I just love showing off the downtown area of my new home, so before Jared left for home we had to take him there. There is so much history there.

I love all the old buildings. They remind me of the time I lived in England.

Princess of York

Once upon a time there was a little girl, Maria, who was the Princess of York. She lived a quiet life on a quiet street with her Mother the Queen. Then one day as she looked out the window she saw a big, white animal walking down the sidewalk in front of her castle.

Maria tells the Queen, Christina, that there is a polar bear walking down the sidewalk. Her mother informs her that there are no polar bears in York. We live to far south for them to be here.

FestivICE

We have been checking out all the different happenings in downtown York. We went to checkout FestivICE.

The day started getting the girls dressed in their winter gear. I remember doing this with all my kids. By the time you got number 5 dressed number one was coming back in.

There were quite a few ice sculptures. They were so small compared to the ones in Alaska.

The girls enjoyed looking at the ice sculptures and even got to sit in an Ice throne.

Kate and Bekka loved the huge bubble.

The girls got to meet the local mascots. A Raven and the Abominable Snowman.

The best thing was the 40ft ice slide.

Bekka really enjoyed it so Mommy took her back for another ride while Daddy and Grandpa watched Kate. Mommy had to take her because Daddy barely fit on the slide.

I just had to get a photo of the radio DJ’s coat.

These were painted on a wall. They tell some of the odd history of York. Be sure to read what they say.

It was a small festival but we enjoyed it. I think it had a lot to do with watching the reactions of our granddaughters, Kate and Bekka.

Thanks for stopping by.

New Life

I know I have been slow about writing but things are moving along very well here. David and I have gotten our Pennsylvania drivers license. We are waiting on a new title from Alaska to register our car because ours must be in Edmonton, Canada. We both got a local number and registered to vote. I guess we are becoming real Pennsylvanians. I guess that is what you call someone from PA.

Thanksgiving wasn’t our norm. We ordered our dinner from Cracker Barrel. It was ok but not what we were used too.

Old Forge York Tap Room

I didn’t have to cook dinner Friday night, so David and I decided to go out for dinner. We had seen a Tap Room when we went to the Fig and Barrel when we first got here.

We arrived around 6:30 and were greated by a warm and cozy room. The waiter was the best. There was a really good choice of beer.
