A Day in Gettysburg

This post is long over-due, but if you lived a day in my crazy, chaotic, hectic life, you'd totally understand why. I barely have a moment to breathe these days, but that's another blog post in itself!
Wayyy back in early August, the hubby and I took Jesse on a day trip to Gettysburg. We haven't had a vacation together since our honeymoon (he's not a big fan of going away, I usually just travel with girlfriends). However, with a baby now, I think it's important to set aside time to spend together as a family. Granted, a vacation at this stage of the game isn't quite feasible yet. So, instead of going away for a few days, we decided just to take a day trip to Gettysburg. I've been dying to sink my toes in some sand, but the hubby is a history buff and Gettysburg is much closer than the beach... so, he wins this time!
We actually had a great time. We started out at the visitor's center. We watched a film and then toured the museum. Afterwards, we stopped at the gift shop and bought an audio CD for a driving tour of the battlefield. It ended up being the perfect option for us. We leisurely drove from landmark to landmark, while the narrator explain what had happened in that particular part of the battlefield. Jesse enjoyed the ride, and we would stop every now and then to get him out for a stroller ride. We had a great day, just the three of us. Lots of passersby commented on how adorable our baby was. One little girl just couldn't pull herself away from him. Already a lady's man ;-)
