Monday News...Our weekend update.

What a eventful weekend. Friday we drove 7 hours to a town in Pennsylvania near Erie. We had a family reunion to attend, hubby had his school reunion and there was a 150th anniversary for the town.

We stayed at one of the Bed & Breakfast in town. The Victorian Inn. It was a long trip. However that evening we got to see the towns queen crowned and the fireworks. Loved the fireworks. I think the screamers are one of my favorites. I haven't heard them in a long time, it was amazing! Sounded like spirits going up in the sky.Here are some shots of the fireworks.....



On Saturday, we had our family reunion. It was nice to see some new folks. I met Anne, the sister of my Father-in law. It was great because I didn't know that much about her. Learned that when she was born she was given to another family to raise. So they called her Anne, however the brothers and sister called her Betty. Also she had a different take on the families history. This was according to her brother Alex's letters she received. He was writing her about the family as he saw it. I very interesting talk. I will have to start a family history log on my Family site. I am working on the Families Blog, writing as a learn new things. So I will start one on my husbands side.Later that evening hubby went to his school reunion. Lyd and I went to the park for the towns activities.

We also saw a parade on Saturday. I posted some via phone on my On the go blog. Here are some Blue beauties.






Now this was the 150th year anniversary for the town. Founded in 1861, Corry was a industrial town. Known for it's manufacturing of Climax Locomotive engines.
It also had a factory that made springs, Associated Springs/Raymond. There were other business in the town, some even dealing in Iron. However the Associated Springs/Raymond was what hubby's family was vested in.

On Sunday we were return home and got caught in a traffic stop on the Pa Toll road. A truck had overturned with one death. Our portion of highway shut down for over 4 hours. We sat on the Interstate. Some folks played games like chess and badminton, dogs had a great time running and chasing balls. Bikers took their bike off their car and road up and down the highway. Even Mobile vacation trailers, got out their chairs and sat out. There was folks playing guitar. It was like a giant party. You got to meet folks. what a experience. Here's a photo of the Truck.

We arrived home at 9:30 pm. today daughter is taking her finals and hubby is back at work. things are getting back to normal, At least for the next week, until the next trip!


So how was your weekend?
