an afternoon in gettysburg

This is one of those things that I have just done for forever and so we must continue doing it, mustn't we? It was a gorgeous rare day where we had no sports and no school and so I said well, this is our Gettysburg day! 

We had lunch at The Mason Dixon Distillery and were able to eat outside, always a perk with kids and COVID. Then we headed into the national park to hit up all our normal spots.... except because of the aforementioned COVID all the observation towers were closed. Which is a bummer for me, not so much Matt because: heights. The park itself was just so mobbed and I really was not a fan of that at all. Not sure what got people in the mood to head to a Civil War battlefield on that fine Sunday but they all had the same idea as I did.

The kids did what they love most, climb rocks at Little Round Top and Devil's Den. Lots of rocks. After which we headed to get ice cream only to see this super long line.... so we headed home. A bit disappointed (me) but tired (them).

Will I go again next year? Oh you betcha.
