After leaving Cleveland, we were excited to be headed toward family in Allentown, PA. Most of them the kids had only met once before. When we arrived (one day early, whoops!), several of them were there to greet us. It was such a warm welcome; we knew it was going to be a great visit. While there, we enjoyed lots of family time, several long walks in lovely parks, and a couple of picnics. The final night was a picnic with lots of family who all gathered to enjoy company, food, and a rollicking game of Apples to Apples. We also visited some local shops and the farmer’s market where we picked up some local fare to sample. We also took a tour of the Mack Truck Museum and got to ride around the test track in one of the new trucks. We stayed up too late talking, and probable ate too much food, and generally had a great time and enjoyed great hospitality. There were a few tears as we left, but we were excited to see some close friends at our next stop.
