Our Trip Down to Atlantic City in New Jersey

Back in February my hubby and I took a little trip down to Atlantic City NJ to meet up with my very good friend Joan who I just adore!

I met Joan online about 3 years ago so this was our second time of meeting up to visit with one another. Joan lives in Florida and I live in Pennsylvania. So in February we headed down to Atlantic City to visit with my friend Joan and we stayed at the Trump Hotel.

The picture in this post is a scrapbooking page I made featuring me and my friend Joan. I wanted to construct just a simple page...nothing too fancy! We really had a great time playing in the Casino (I lost) but she won a little money and seeing some of the sites near the Trump Marina.

Atlantic City is a fun place to visit and we went down in the wintertime and there was still plenty of things to see & do which kept us all pretty busy! We had a great time!

Beautiful Religous Statue in Dauphin PA

We had my MIL's 80th birthday party in the church rectory and outside the main doors was this beautiful statue. My picture does not do it any justice but I just had to share the photo! I am a big fan of sculpture...particularly historical or religous statues.

This statue sits on the grounds of the St. Matthew Catholic Church in Dauphin Pennsylvania and is beautiful, you really have to see it in person to appreciate all of it's beauty. I am not sure how old it is (looks fairly new to me) but it's gorgeous! I sat there for at least 20 minutes admiring it's beauty.

If you are ever in the area, make sure you stop in and check it out (with their permission) as it's on private church grounds. The church and grounds are beautiful too!
