Although school was back in session at the end of August, I wasn't quite ready (and I'm still not) for our summer fun to end. So, Labor Day weekend we took another trip to Gettysburg, Pa. We've been there a few times and still have so many more things to see and do. Surprisingly, the kids enjoy the history as much as Mike and I do!
Sachs Covered bridge was one of the places we hadn't been to on our previous visits. With many ghost stories floating around, we thought it would be fun to visit. It turned out to be one of the most peaceful places on our trip. The bridge itself is beautiful and the water was so calm. The trees and clouds reflecting off the water was just gorgeous! I'm not sure how I would feel about visiting at night, though. Maybe we'll save that for another time when the kids aren't with us.
One of favorite places in Gettysburg is Devils Den. The girls could spend all day climbing the rocks and imagine what it was like for the soldiers who fought there.
The Pennsylvania Memorial is another favorite stop. Mike and my Dad spent a good amount of time searching through the list of soldiers names looking for our ancestors.
Touring the battlefields was the perfect way to spend the weekend and we especially enjoyed having my parents along with us. They took us to a few of their favorite places as well. I'm sure we'll be heading back again sometime soon!
