Lititz

Mr Renn had {took} the day off school today, and our plans for the day fell through last minute. So we devised a backup plan of spending the day in Lititz. We drove through it two years ago and thought it was charming, so we thought we'd go back and try it out.

We parked at the Lititz Springs Park, visited the Welcome Center {noticed how friendly the people were} had lunch at Cafe Chocolat {$4 frozen hot chocolate - score! and again, noticed how friendly the people were} We then toured the historic Sturgis Pretzel bakery, which was way fun because we got the tourguide all to ourselves and got to learn the tricks of the trade. {she was really nice}
Then we got a cheap local {yummy} italian ice, and visited the Wilbur Chocolate Factory.

And we rounded the trip out with a return to the park so everyone could get their wiggles out before we loaded up for the drive home. It was the perfect daytrip, I love that little town! {With the really friendly people, why can't all of PA be like that?} Pictures and video here.

How fun! We stopped there once but it was later in the day and everything was closed. Looks like we missed out!

I'm with Crystal, obviously. Your post makes me miss a place in our life that will always be home and someday we will have the joy of holding our little one in our arms again. For now his body is laid to rest just outside of our beautiful town of Lititz. Who knows, maybe we will move back there someday. It's hard to say where the wind will take us. By the way, I could have used some of that Wilbur's chocolate :)
