Gettysburg Getaway

Matt and I had been wanting to get away for a few days to celebrate our anniversary.  That is a little more difficult to do now that Abby has night feedings using her feeding pump, but my parents rose to the challenge--with the assistance of Dr. Caleb!  Everything went just fine!

While Matt knew we were going away, that was the extent of his knowledge.  I planned the location and everything else as a surprise.  When we got in the car, I gave him an envelope with a letter in it stating the address of our inn, as well as how the rest of the trip would go.  I had created a "Choose Your Own Adventure" trip with lots of envelopes with A or B options in them (where we would eat lunch, how we would view the battlefields, which  museum we would visit, where we would go for our anniversary dinner, etc.)  Just like it is tempting to flip ahead in a Choose Your Own Adventure book, he was allowed two cheats where he could view both options before deciding.  It was fun!  :)

This is our room at the inn, which was very nice.  We had a room with a little sitting room, a small refrigerator, and a jacuzzi soaking tub.  Breakfast each day was delicious, and they had tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and desserts out for you to enjoy during the day.

It was a nice place, but it lacked some of the charm and warmth that we have had in other bed and breakfasts.  We were hoping to hear about the history of the house, but the man really didn't know much.  I think we would probably choose another place if we went to Gettysburg again.  Nevertheless, it was very cute!
