Between Christmas and New Year... stuff to do.

Jonestown AOK Campground
Jonestown, PA

Our month here in Jonestown to just about up.   We visited with family, met a couple of future fulltime RVers, enjoyed services at a local church and celebrated the Christmas season.

Breakfast at daughter Terri's on Christmas morning in Cleona, PA

Christmas dinner at daughter Amy's in White Hall, MD.   Only remembered to get pictures of the most important persons....Charlotte and Abby:

Between Christmas and today we took the girls to some fun places.   Last weekend we went to Cabelas in Hamburg, PA and also to this attraction in nearby Shartlesville, PA.

 I can remember as a child coming here with Mom and Dad.  Also bringing my own daughters here. This is a treat for all ages.  When we walked in the girls did not know what to expect.  Wow!  Look at all those trains.

Every half hour attendees are seated to view the sunset and sunrise over the village.  This is while the Star Spangled Banner is played and then Kate Smith's famous rendition of God Bless America.

Last night we went to Christmas Village in Bernville, PA.   This village came to be due to a local family's decorating their house and grounds starting back in the 40's.  It grew and grew to what it is today.

This is a walking tour around the grounds.  Cost is $8.00 ages 4 to 10; $10.00 ages 11 to 64 and $9.00 over age 65.    It took us about an hour to walk the clearly laid out path by following the arrows.  It is open weekend nights starting November 1 to Thanksgiving then 7 days a week from Thanksgiving to New Years Day.

Well tomorrow we take off and slowly make our way to Arizona by the end of January stopping to enjoy the company of family and friends along the way.

Happy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year to you two! You spent the holiday in style. Hope to see you in 2016.

  2. Oh what fun it is...to be with family. What a wonderful and fun time y'all had. I love that Miniature Village. How cute!

    Wishing y'all a very happy and healthy New Year.

  3. Safe travels as you get back on the road. I would enjoy seeing that miniature village, and you can't beat Kate Smith. When I was little my father played that Kate Smith record every Saturday morning.
