A few trips are happening just now. Thought I’d share a bit of them with you, and even show some of the food!
This past weekend, the husband and I did an overnight (kid-free) in the “land of love”- the Poconos (Thank you, Groupon). It was fantastic. A long drive for just an overnight but still worth it as we tend to be able to get along well in the car. Chatting, music, napping- it was lovely.
We arrived at the Poconos Palace Resort around 4pm. We had been talking about how wonderfully old-school and cheesy it was going to be and it did not disappoint. The entire resort was based on a theme of love mixed with Kellerman’s from Dirty Dancing. It could not have been better.
We were handed a list of activities upon check-in. (We were too late for most but did check out both the trivia and the Journey tribute band.)
The next morning we engaged in some archery. Which I have never done before. I was channeling my inner Katniss. My husband hasn’t done it since boy scouts so I think between us, we did pretty well.
Overall, it was a great little overnight trip.
I am now in Niagara Falls with my mum and kids. It is the first time for all of us. We stopped last night in Syracuse and partook of ice cream from Gannon’s, which is one of the 27 places to have ice cream before you die, according to Buzzfeed.
We are now in Niagara Falls, after a particularly awful car trip wherein my oldest lost her cookies and began to scream, spit and hit everyone around her. I am NOT looking forward to driving her home in a few days. Meanwhile, though, this is the view from our room:
