The weekend was all about dogs! Dan's dad has a few acres of land, so Selma and her best friend Lily ran all around. The weather was absolutely perfect all weekend, so we spent a lot of time outside with them.
Happy dog = Happy life :)
How adorable is Dan's mom's pitbull!? I love him!
I think Lily was a model in another life...she's always ready for the camera!
We took a trip down to Gettysburg to check out the museum and some battlefields. I also got to see part of the marathon race course! It was so beautiful down there.
So many open fields!
In the museum, we watched a short film about the Civil War and went into a room that had a 360 degree view of the battle grounds. This is actually the largest oil painting in North America! It was so incredible to be surrounded by such a powerful image. You actually felt like you were in the scene because there were real props set on the ground to make the image appear 3D.
The amount of detail in this painting is insane!
Later that night we went cosmic bowling which was a lot of fun. I'm not very good at bowling but Dan and his dad are amazing. They both crushed me but I had fun singing and dancing to all the old rock music!
We also went to a Hershey Bears game! We bought two sets of seats and swapped in between periods with Dan's dad and brother. Our first seats were in the second row which was crazy to be that close to the action:
The other seats were on the other side of the ice and about halfway up:
It was a great game and went into a shootout! I love overtime and shoot outs because they're so intense, so I was so excited. We ended up winning!
Overall, it was such a fun weekend. It was great to just relax and do all of Dan's favorite things to celebrate his big day. I couldn't ask for more!
How was your weekend?
What does a perfect day look like for you?
Have you ever been to old battlefields?
