30th Birthday Bash -2016

Last weekend Jolene and I went to Lancaster for several days. We met in Pa so Mom and Dad could watch her children. We haven’t spent that much time together without children for years. We felt 16 again! I got to the farm late Friday night and we talked till the wee hours of the morning. We left early Saturday morning and went into Lancaster City to do some shopping.

I made sure we had plenty of snacks along for the drive. 🙂

Maybe I’ve been living in the city too long but any farmers market seems like such a treat for me. Fresh flowers, meat, and yummy baked goods.

That evening we got to the Loft. Oh this place is just how I imagined it! So cozy and creative. We sat and sipped tea and for the first in years caught up on talking.

The next morning we went to an old diner right down the road. Being twins, we naturally had to split our breakfast.

We headed to our twin friends’ house for lunch afterwards. Yes, there was a lot of eating this weekend. Jolene didn’t know I had invited a few other friends to join us. Train had the table set up so beautiful with fresh flowers and candles.

Then we sat in the sunshine while they lavished us with presents. We are so incredibly blessed!

Both being pizza lovers, we picked a pie up on our way back to the loft.

The next morning we went for massages after stopping in at Cafe One Eight for brunch.

On our way home we stopped by our Grandma’s house. She of course had tea and cookies waiting for us.

When we got back to Mom’s there were some very happy children waiting to see us. I think Jolene was even more excited to see them.

Here’s to our 30s! I pray we stay pure and true in the years ahead.
