Days 23 & 24: Moving Along to PA

June 27, 2013

Yesterday was a nice family day with the last little things finished and re-ready to hit the road again.  We also had our 20 week ultrasound at a local hospital with an OB (my very FIRST visit to a doctor for a prenatal visit, since I’m normally one of those midwife types).  We finished the day with a traditional family meal on my mom’s side (chowder!) and said our goodbyes.

Today we had a lazy morning and left for Pennsylvania.  Tonight we are in Pittsburgh with my cousin and her husband.  It rained for the entire drive until we entered the city.  Earlier in the day we stopped for lunch and decided to make it a real lunch, instead of fast food.  We were driving the small highway along the Ohio River, rather than the boring old interstate, and found this to be far more fun (and the slower speed to be far more fuel efficient – see?  practical!).  We passed through a fantastic little town called Gallipolis, OH – oh my goodness, it was like we were transported to 19th century Europe!  Some of the buildings were so adorable!  It was founded by some French settlers and their influence is still seen today.  We didn’t eat there, but rather a few miles down the road in Pomeroy, OH at the Wild Horse Cafe.  If you ever get there, order the meatloaf, or the bison burger, or the kids’ mac & cheese, or probably anything else and you’re sure not to be disappointed!  We took a walk along the river and checking out some VERY old houses along the street.

We pulled into town here in PA later this evening, had a lovely dinner and a relaxing evening.  Tomorrow, we head across PA to Philadelphia for the weekend!
