For one of our wedding gifts, dear friends of ours gave us a gift certificate to go to Family Life's "A Weekend to Remember". It's a retreat for couples of any age designed to help strength your marriage. We decided to go a little early on Friday and do a few activities in the area before it began. If you know me, you know I often choose outdoor things.. but it was February and cold, so we toured Troeg's Brewery!
We got to sample a couple of different types of grains.
Grains wasn't the only thing we sampled (although let's be real, Mike drank 90% of this haha). The tour was about an hour, included three different "samples", and we each got a souvenir glass! Not bad for $5/person.
They have a sweet cafe & dining area, so we enjoyed an order of Poutine (not very authentic, but still good).
Most of Saturday was spent inside while snow fell outdoors. The next morning I woke Mike up for sunrise (bless him) and it was so pretty!
After the retreat was over on Sunday, we spent a few hours exploring the Hershey Gardens. Although there wasn't much to see outside (although the snow was pretty), the indoor butterfly garden was pretty incredible!
All in all, Hershey was a lovely place for a quick weekend away for the two of us. It was nice because it was close and we really enjoyed the marriage retreat.
