It's been 22 years since Mike and I have gone on a vacation without children. We decided it was about time we did that. Originally our weekend getaway called for lazy days chillin' on the beach with sand beneath our feet. However, Mike's job is relatively new and without vacation time we kind of just had to wait for a weekend that he wasn't scheduled to work. Finding out at the last minute that Labor Day weekend he was off made it impossible to get a hotel at the beach so we made a quick decision to head to Gettysburg instead. Neither one of us had been there since we were kids and we both love history, so it was a place that we had been talking about visiting soon.
Walking the battlefields was by far our favorite part of the trip. There is just so much to learn and experience we could have spent weeks soaking it all in.
The view from the top of this tower was amazing and worth the climb. Unfortunately, we were only up there a few minutes before a quick storm came through and we had to head back down. When I say "quick storm", I mean it! It was done raining by the time we reached the bottom.
There was so much to see and I can't wait to go back again. Next time we'll take the kids along for a little history lesson. It was a good trip..well, except for the car breaking down on the way home.
