We had a GREAT weekend! We took both dogs with us to Champion, PA to 7 Springs and amazingly they both did great in the car. We lost about an hour on the way up and 1/2 hour on the way home due to traffic.
Friday night we got there around 9pm and headed straight to dinner at Timbers. On Saturday we enjoyed the breakfast buffet overlooking the 'slopes'. Then we bought the unlimited activities wristband and enjoyed chairlift rides, alpine slide racing, paddleboating, etc... We treated ourselves to dinner at Helen's. I ordered the Osso Buco and Todd had the filet. We had a great bottle of wine and talked for hours over dinner. It was so nice. Sunday, we ate breakfast at Timbers and went biking...that was really tough with the hills of the mountain. Then, we went skeet shooting. It was a blast and for my first time, I didn't do too bad! That night, we enjoyed some sushi and wine at the bar in Helen's and then hit the Phil Vassar concert. It was fantastic!! Followed by a fireworks show and home by 11pm tucked in bed!
Monday we woke up to soem rain, so we got the house straight and packed up our things to head to lunch at the restaurant at the Sporting Clay. They have a beautiful building and good food!
We were home around 6pm...unpacked and headed to Dairy Queen for some burgers and ice cream...our last official farewell to summer!!
