We spent the weekend at the Doubletree Resort in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It was in the middle of Amish Country, so there wasn't much to do or see in the immediate area except a tour of an Amish museum and a fancy McDonald's. The hotel, however was wonderful! It was beautiful and the staff was incredibly accommodating.

So what did we do this weekend? Well, there were 5 group sessions. Everyone met in the meeting room and we had snacks, watched a series of videos from Laugh Your Way To A Better Marriage, and discussed them afterward. Everything was led by Fort Myer's chaplain, Mark. He and his wife were so sweet and encouraging. We also LOVED the videos we watched. They were so funny, yet so true and easy to relate to. The comedian really points out some truths about marriage and comparisons between men and women, but makes it funny instead of making it sound like a bad thing. Definitely worth watching with your spouse!
We had 3 of those sessions on Friday night and 2 on Saturday morning. Then we had the rest of Saturday all to ourselves! We chose to spend the day with our new friends, Shawna and Jason, by heading to Hershey Park. It was so fun! We did a quick run-through of Chocolate World, then headed over to the amusement park for the rest of the afternoon.
After a long afternoon at Hershey, we had dinner reservations (thanks to my sweet hubby) at Devon Seafood Grill in downtown Hershey. The food was delicious, but SO filling! And the service was awesome. We were definitely under-dressed (the dress code was resort casual, but were were all in sweats or jeans), but they didn't care...or at least didn't look like it. =) I had the True Maine lobster bisque, lemon-asparagus risotto, and lump crap cakes. So delicious!
