Pennsylvania Trip Highlights

A few weeks ago LP and I took a trip to Pennsylvania.  We drove down on Wednesday and then on Friday I left LP with my parents for the weekend and went out to Carlisle, PA where I went to college to hang out with two of my besties from back in the day in our old stomping grounds.

An awesome shot of us hanging in the student union.  Fortunately the actual students were on fall break so we don't look too nerdy taking this shot (although I could have chosen a more flattering angle!)

When I got back to my parents' house Sunday morning (my parents, apparently, barely surviving the 40 hours of Toddler Boot Camp) my grandmother and aunts came to visit and to bestow presents upon LP (even though it was Aunt Cindi's birthday).

LP was very excited that GG (Great Grandma) brought him a "Big Thomas!"

Little Paul and the birthday girl- Aunt Cindi

Little Paul and Aunt Sue- they hadn't met before but LP took to Aunt Sue very quickly, especially since she was willing to read his Thomas coloring book to him.

We played ball outside....

Attempted learning how to "catch"

And had a bubble-blowing contest.

Then we went for a nice leisurely stroll with Pappy and Nana.

Later that afternoon we helped Pappy feed his pet deer in the back yard.  First, you pour a bucket of corn on the stone wall.

And then you watch the very tame deer come over to enjoy the buffet.

This deer is so tame now that I was able to take pictures of it from less than 10 feet away.

Pennsylvania- it's happening there folks, I tell ya!
