Then, our guest had wanted to see Amish country, so we set off for Lancaster. We ended up in downtown Lancaster, although we really wanted to be in a more tourist driven area.
After some failed attempts due to construction detours that our GPS was unable to account for, we decided to head home.
It turned out to be beneficial. On the way home, we drove right through Amish country and saw many Amish people and buggies and farms. It was really neat and such a great adventure even with a few missteps.
So that was the good news of the day. The not-so-good news was that my mom became quite ill this morning and is spending the night in the hospital for observation. My dear friend, Shannon, took me to the hospital, and we visited her. She seemed much better than she was this morning, but she still wasn't quite herself. They haven't determined an exact cause, but they're expecting a reaction to a new medicine that she started yesterday.
