Hey everyone! We've spent our weekend in Pennsylvania. And y'know, it's been really refreshing. Our hotel is on a pretty secluded exit off the highway, without many convenient amenities. But we've liked it! It's very quiet out here. The culture of Pennsylvania seems a lot slower than New Jersey. A lot more laid back.

Saturday was a beautiful day, so that afternoon we went out and played catch on the lawn for a while. Then we went and sat in our van. We opened the doors and just kinda lounged. Why? I don't know. It was just nicer than being in our hotel room. We organized the van a little bit, read, talked... it was chill :)

That night, we decided to go watch a movie. So we drove to the next town over and watched The Invention of Lying. It's a very funny and clever movie, until the point when it gets downright sacreligious. I don't want to spend the time and blog space here to discuss it, but suffice it to say that it left plenty to talk about.

Sunday morning, we found a small country church literally one minute up the road. Those people were the most friendly, welcoming congregation. It's so refreshing to spend time with fellow Christians. Plus, we ate cookies before leaving :)

After church, we made the miniscule drive back to the hotel and changed clothes for our pre-planned afternoon date. Through some brochures, we found nearby Crystal Cave. We enjoyed touring a cave over our honeymoon, so we figured we could explore a new one.
TomTom took us through some gorgeous backroads on the way to the Cave. We took pictures. Soon to be attached :)

When we arrived, we ate dinner at a little lunch place on site. It was as close to home-cooked fast fod as you can get. Kelsey got a chilidog, and the chili came straight from a crock pot. I had a sloppy joe sandwich, and we both had homemade chicken noodle soup. Awesome.

We then toured Crystal Cave. So-called, because small crystals actually grow on the walls, and they sparkle under the right light. It was a nice cave, pretty expansive. Fifty-four degrees year-round, some nice formations. Again, we took pictures.

And that's about it! We came back, made some dinner in our room, watched The Mummy III, and called our families.

So, before I call it a night, I'll post those pictures :)
