Take A Walk on the Wild Side...

Yesterday I woke up and looked out my window to find one of the most beautiful days of weather we've had this summer in Central Pennsylvania. So I did what anyone else would do... I called Sarah and told her we were going on a picnic.
 An hour and a half later we were off to Fort Hunter! It is this beautiful park on Front Street in Harrisburg that has beautiful views of the Susquehanna River.  
I hadn't been there in years and when I got there couldn't believe how nice it still was. 
Sarah and I took a little stroll before we finally set up the blanket, which was actually Sarah's college comforter, and laid out all of our delicious food!
I got to talk to Marylou on the telephone... I love our conversations. She always makes me laugh.  Sarah and I tried to throw popcorn into each other's mouths. I preformed an interpretive dance to Pocohantas's "Just Around the River Bend." You know--business as usual.
I couldn't get over how GREEN everything looked. Seriously... it was so beautiful.
I didn't get a picture of it... but as we were eating and talking a train was going across this bridge. That's another thing I love about going to Temple... I get to occasionally take the train to and from there!
The trail we strolled down...
Then we packed up and headed to Middletown to surprise Liz!!! I was driving, so we got lost of course. But when we made it she took us to get ice cream, even though she still wasn't feeling all that great. I had raspberry... for the second day in a row! It's like heaven in a cone.
Because she was sick she refused to have her picture taken... but come to think about it, she usually refuses to get her picture taken...

Liz being illusive on Middletown's version of CoaCoa Castle. Hoffer Park is beautiful. They were setting up for their craft show. We swung on the swings and ate ice cream.
Then Liz took us on a tour of Middletown... and it ended in another beautiful park. We went on a small trail that led us to this beautiful view of Three Mile Island. Oh Nuclear Power Plants... gotta love em...
The day was wonderful. Filled with great conversation, friends, and constant laughing. What more could I ask for?!
