This past Saturday, the kids and I got together with some old friends (two families that we share lots and lots of memories with) and spent a very cold March day in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. We spent a lot of our time looking through the amazing new museum and even more time in our car, so I didn’t get many pictures outside, but we still had a blast hanging out with our old friends. I consider myself very lucky to be so close to historical places like this!
These first two pictures are shots of an enormous cyclorama painted by Paul Dominique Phillippoteaux in the late 1800s. I was in awe.
Me and my old friends – I miss having them in the neighborhood!
If you’re planning a trip to Gettysburg, I would highly recommend the museum and “attached” movie and cyclorama. The cyclorama was probably my favorite part of the whole experience. I would also recommend the driving tour of the battlefields. Because of time and weather, we didn’t do the whole driving tour this time, but there’s so much to learn and so much beauty to see when you take the time to drive through the area. Plus, unlike the museum and movie, the driving tour is free. Bonus!
Now it’s time for YOU to show me your best shots from this past week. Link up below and have a fantastic weekend!
