Old Bedford Village

Friday, June 25th, 2010

Our next driving break took place at the Old Bedford Village. This is a really neat village made up of actual buildings from the 1700’s and 1800’s. Unfortunately, we didn’t get there until 3:45PM, and they closed at 5PM. Since we got there so late, there was hardly anybody else there – and some of the people who worked there seemed ready to get out of there. But the ones who acted their roles were very nice. Apparently, their business is much better on the weekends, when they do big reenactments. They were gearing up for a big cowboy themed event for Saturday, and some of the prep work had already begun. We still had a fun time. And they made some really yummy cookies there.

Lunch at GMa’s and GPa’s

One of the best things about this vacation is that we drive directly through places where we can visit family and friends. We got to take a quick lunch break at Grandma’s and Grandpa’s place.

Family Vacation to South Bend, IN

Friday, June 25th, 2010

Today we are starting our family vacation. We are going to South Bend, Indiana. I don’t know anything about Indiana other than my sister-in-law has family there. It’s not a location that I ever planned on going to.

So why are we going there? I have a timeshare, and it was available during the week that I wanted to be on vacation. When I saw it was available, I checked on a map, and saw that it was a long drive, but that Pittsburgh is about half way. We have friends in Pittsburgh, so why not take the opportunity to see them on the way out and back.

So, that’s the plan.

We will be staying at the Varsity Club of America – South Bend Chapter. We should be leaving in a few hours.
