Road Trip with my Grandson Cody

I took my 12 year old grandson, Cody, on a road trip last week. I flew to Boston and rented a car and we took off from their home west of Boston for the eastern part of Pennsylvania. Amish country of Lancaster County, and Philadelphia, a city rich in history. We had a great time. This was our fourth road trip together. He sure is growing fast. I really enjoy the time with him. I only get to see him once or twice a year now that we've all moved so far apart. I hope he remembers these trips. We learned a lot about the Amish and Mennonite ways and saw the horse and mule-drawn carriages and plows. He was pretty amazed that people live without electricity on purpose. 'What, no TV or microwave?' But I think he was pretty impressed with the delicious fresh-made ice cream straight off the farm. There are always tradeoffs, aren't there?
