We did everything on vacation. Well, everything there was to do in Erie, anyway. And then some.
While Dan and I were at my reunion Friday, my parents took the children to the beach (formally known as Presque Isle) where M promptly fell in the lake.
Saturday, we went to the Erie Children’s Museum, which while teeny, is still fun.
Sunday we spent the day in a friend’s pool and had a lovely dinner at the Yacht Club. I got to catch up with my all-time BFFs, which made the whole trip worth it.
Monday, we went to the Erie Zoo.
Tuesday, we did the beach again. This time M fell in the lake on purpose, over and over again.
Wednesday, it rained. We went to The Tom Ridge Environmental Center. When the weather cleared up, we went to Findley Lake in New York for fried fish and live music.
Thursday, we were originally scheduled to travel home. But it was a beautiful day, and the kids had been clamoring to go to Waldameer. So we moved back our departure time to the evening, and went to the amusement park.
Friday, we woke up in our own house. Dan and I worked out, then I ran errands. The children missed Nonna and Pap-pap. They are a lot more fun than mom and Dad.
Saturday, my SIL picked up the children, and Dan and I hit the road again for a wedding in Eastern Pennsylvania. They had a candy table!
Sunday, we got back to Pittsburgh in time for Dan to see AC Milan lose to Manchester City at Heinz Field. And I took a nap and went to the Jack White show. It was awesome.
Family vacations should all be so action packed. We had a great week.
