PA Road trip- Monday







We had a beautiful drive from Ron, Valerie and Jensen's home to Denver, PA. It was very scenic. We passed through a few tunnels under the mountains - it was pretty cool. We arrived at our first stop Hickory Run Campground- we rented a trailer. It is pretty hilarious. It is old, tiny but quaint. Today we contacted The Ronald McDonald House. We were on the list to be admitted but they did not have room open up large enough for our size family. Our back up plan if we did not get a room was to drive into Philly and get a hotel and that is exactly what we did. We are now at the historic Comfort Inn on the Delaware River.
Once we arrived in Philly we saw signs for Chinatown- to pass the time waiting for our hotel room to be ready we parked and walked around. Eli chatted with the store workers as we bought some of his favorite Chinese snacks. It reminded me of China. Everyone is getting ready for bed. We are so excited to be here and to see what the doctors have to say.

That is the same hotel we stayed at in Philly. It is really nice there and it's very close to the sites.

Good luck and have fun.

Praying you had good news today. Glad you had a chance to explore Chinatown a bit...we've been there once before Tessa came home and very much agree- it felt like China.

Ok, "old, tiny & quaint" is a pretty nice description, but that fact that you moved to a hotel tells me more :) We can't wait for you guys to get home & hear the stories. We are praying that all goes well at Shriner's and you get some good news.
