The Best Laid Plans

On Fridays I generally post the Weekend planner.

This is one of my favorite blog topics because It is something I usually don't write from personal experience. I develop the list from various subscriptions, feeds, and other research. Like most of you when I read the planner I am inspired or intrigued to want to try some of the activities on the list. This past weekend was a bit different, while the post had some local activities and even a movie (Igor) there was also a plan for a trip to Pennsylvania. I had included PA because we had tickets for a Day out with Thomas in Strasburg . The Trip to Strasburg from NYC is about 3 hours by Car, So we decided to make it a weekend trip.

On Saturday we drove to Valley Forge National Historical Park.
Z and I hooked up the Bike trailer and set out for some site seeing (and a little exercise for Dad)

During our trip we stopped to Play hide-and-seek in and around some of the log houses where the Continental army was housed between December of 1777 and June of 1778.

The bike path is a great place to ride or walk it is about 5 miles and works it's way around and through many of the sites to see at the Park including the Encampments, Canon Batteries, the Chapel, and the Memorial.

At night we went to the King of Prussia Mall for Dinner there are a number of restaurants there including national chains like TGI Fridays and The Fox and the Hound Pub. We stayed at a Courtyard Hotel which had a pool (always a good idea when traveling with kids). On Sunday we continued our trip driving about 40 minutes to Strasburg for our 12:30 Scheduled trip on Thomas.

Although we had a good plan and were able to see and do quite a bit there was plenty that we did not do including the Valley Forge Trolley Tour - There is a special tour that happens at 5:00 PM on certain days this includes a Trolley tour, Dinner, and campfire stories call 610-783-1074 for more information and to book tour. Valley Forge could be a weekend in itself.

In Strasburg we did not visit the Choo Choo Barn which has 150 hand-built animated figures and vehicles and 22 operating trains.
