Gettysburg FANatic!!!!

My dad is a huge civil war buff....
he watched documentaries, he reads
books, he searches online. And no matter
how much it pains me to say this....he was
probably more excited to see Gettysburg
than me when he came to visit. ;)
Just kidding, but not about him being
way way way excited to see Gettysburg.
My poor Dad had an 18 hour trip to get to MD....
he left work at about 2 p.m. and went straight
to the airport, only to find out he was possibly not
going to make it out that night. But, luckily
a flight opened up and he made it to
Atlanta, Ga. He figured he could
catch a few winks at the airport, he had
a big day the next day.....Gettysburg!!!
Well, between the floor buffers and vacuums
my poor dad did not get very much sleep.
He made it out on the very first flight and
got to Baltimore at about 8 a.m. We thought
maybe he would want to nap a bit, take it easy
and we would hit Gettysburg the next day.
Boy, were we wrong....he wanted to go to Gettysburg.
So we packed a lunch that we could eat
when we got there and headed out.
We arrived and decided to eat first then drive
the tour. Here we are making our deliscious lunch.


Daniel, after lunch....Savanah 8 1/2 months prego

Here is Dad to excited to wait....
so during lunch he told us the story
of "The battle of Gettysburg"
He was a fountain of knowledge....
it was awesome to share this experience
with my Dad!!! We had our own
personal tour guide!!
Just a cool statue we wanted a picture by!!
Another cool monument
