Celebrate the Small Things

I'm pleased to be part of Vikki's Celebrate the Small Things Blog Hop. Each week we post something that has happened in our lives - mostly to Celebrate.


Today I'm definitely celebrating a four day mini-vacation with my son, Robert. 




Two of my daughters and myself drove to Lancaster, PA to spend a marvelous family time with Robert and his girlfriend, Carol. We dined at the Belvedere on a outside patio draped with exquisite floral arrangements. Had a brew at the Lancaster Brewing House. Walked endlessly. Had fun taking a ride on the Strasburg Railroad built in 1832, a path taken by Abraham Lincoln in life and death. 

Enjoying a beverage on the Strasburg!
