Easter and Springtime in the Cornfields

Kelly and I are very lucky because we have been adopted by the Dice family. For those of you keeping up on the blog, you know that Ben, Kristen, Hannah, and Emma live just 6 houses down the street and have us over quite often. For Easter we were invited over to Kristen's parents house to have Easter Dinner (more accurately Lunch).

Dinner consisted of ham-loaf, meatballs, broccoli, salad, rolls, potatoes, fruit, pineapple upside down cake, and tapioca pudding. We left very full and glad to have had somewhere to go on Easter.

After our meal the Dice kids headed for a nap while Kelly and I went out to see the sights of spring that had sprung in Lancaster.



As we journeyed around town we ended up in Lancaster County Central Park. There we found the Rock Ford Plantation. The Rock Ford Plantation is the historic 18th century home of Revolutionary War General Edward Hand.






Dutch Country is home to some odd things. Are you dead but really like golf? Then this is the place for you!



The trees throughout the area are beginning to bloom.


Flowers are popping up everywhere!


We found another covered bridge! This time it was the Kurtz Mill Covered Bridge. Originally known as Isaac Baer’s Mill Bridge, it was built over the Conestoga River in 1876 for $1407. Damaged in1972 by the flood waters from Hurricane Agnus, it was moved to Lancaster County Central Park and rebuilt by David Esh for $75,000 in 1975.
