Fun in PA with Pa (alias Dad)

 Quick trip to PA - post Thanksgiving/pre-Christmas. Arrived on a lovely winter day. Blue sky, very cold, and icicles hanging from Dad's front porch.
 They are in for a wicked winter. This shows the accumulation on the bushes from the Sunday and Tuesday before I flew into Philly. But it is pretty and glistens in the sunshine.
 Saturday turned bleak, but dire predictions did not stop us. We had tickets for an exhibit at the Michener Museum in Doylestown. Teensy flakes fell in the morning. Here are my Dad and younger sister, Lori braving the cold with a smile.
My smile is more of a grimace as a cold wind blasted us. We scurried inside and waited for my brother, David, his wife Cherie, and my Aunt Janice. I will have more on the exhibit in a later post. Needless to say, we had a splendid time, great lunch at the Hickory Cafe, and we got back to Dad's before more snow accumluated followed by sleet.

You can go home again.


  1. BRRRRR! It's been a long time since I've seen icicles like that. (I don't miss 'em, either!) I'm glad the weather cooperated enough for you to enjoy time with your family without getting snowbound. (Your post title is reeeeally cute.)

  2. My mom lives in the Pittsburgh area and says it's been bitter cold there too! I live at 8000 feet so cold is a way of life, but it's a dry cold-- not like the cold in PA where I grew up! Brrrr.. pretty pictures though!
