It was a good sunny Sunday with cool breeze. So, we decided to go and visit the lake view farm in triadelphia, Glenelg, MD for our pumpkin patch. We thought of this day as an extension of our 5th year wedding celebration and so there we go!
Not bad afterall, although we tried to find a big pumpkin for our jack o'lantern, we weren't able to. We thought we were not on the first few batches to get the most fresh pumpkin since the farm opened for the pumpkin season, but it was fine. We were able to choose two round ones for two jack o'lanterns on Halloween.
Here's Ging looking for her "ideal" pumpkin, and of course this is her first pumpkin patch! :).

October 24, 2009 - Harpers Ferry National Historical Park
This park is full of complex past with a colorful history. If you love history, this is the ideal place as well. During the peak of the fall season, here is a great place to see the colorful trees.
The park has many explorable diverse areas, from the 19th century restored buildings and exhibits to hiking and biking.

The tour is more on educational experience...ideal for kids and school trips, but fun for everybody else. Why? Because the best part is you get to taste free corn chips freshly made from the actual factory. It was tasty!!!
It was as well a fun experience visiting the real factory, with the people actually working inside, and you get a glimpse on how the products are being made from scratch to packing.
After the tour, we got one FREE pack of potato chips each! :).

Dutch Wonderland is a 48-acre amusement park that offers entertainments such as story telling and theatrical high diving, and with a large water-play area. It has 32 rides ideal for families. It's a small theme park, but you can still do lots of things in there.
We did the Sky Ride, hubby was scared and so was I, lol! We both have phobia of heights, but the height was not too high enough to give me shivers on the spine. That helped us eased a little bit :). Then we had fun riding on the tug boat as well.

Well, we did had fun, indeed! Riding on a presidential coal-burning steam train as they would say is more than fun! It's like you walked through the past where famous people in the past had been through. We had a 45-minute (presidential) train ride that departed from East Strasburg station that took us through the Amish countryside to Paradise, PA then back. During the trip, you'll see more than 1,000 acres of Amish farm fields still plowed by horses and mules. You see Amish buggies on railroad crossings and cool farms!
The best part? You enjoy food and drinks and entertainment while aboard the steam train on Strasburg Railroad. A little bit of a change to that of visiting a zoo. LOL!
Visiting Strasburg Railroad is like experiencing romance and adventure in the early 20th century that comes to life.
