Each week, I feature 3 things that deserve a thumbs up. Here are my 3 Thumbs Up! for this week.
Thumbs Up Number 1: Woodside Lodge at Spring Mountain. A couple of weeks ago, Leanne and I went out with some good friends to this “new” restaurant in our area. This renovated restaurant and lodge used to be known as Woodside Inn. Several years ago, Leanne and I went to the Inn for dinner, but we weren’t all that impressed. The newly opened Lodge was a completely different experience. The wait staff was helpful. The restaurant was laid out well and nicely decorated. And the food was delicious. If you enjoy trying local craft beers, there are several beers from around the region on tap. We left the restaurant satisfied and excited about the prospect of coming back for more. If you live in the Perkiomen Valley area, you should consider checking out the Woodside Lodge at Spring Mountain.
Thumbs Up Number 2: Reading Phillies. This week, our 4-H Seeing Eye Puppy Club ventured to the First Energy Stadium to take in a Reading Phillies game. The Reading Phils are the Double-A Minor League affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies. We had a wonderful experience all around. Our seats were right along the 3rd base line (there’s not a bad seat in the whole stadium). The food is reasonably priced. The parking was free. Between each half inning, there is entertainment that included vegetable racing, hot dogs being thrown into the stands, dancing tooth fairies, and many other acts. We were also personally welcomed by a representative from the club who checked back with us a few times to make sure we were having a good experience. On top of that, the Phillies won the game! What more could you ask for. If you live in the area, you should check out a game. If you don’t live in the area, consider checking out your local minor league team.
Thumbs Up Number 3: Life As Experienced. This blog by Seth Caddell has become one of my new favorites. Life As Experienced provides spiritual insights on everyday life from this self-proclaimed pastor, husband, X-Box player, and Christ follower. Seth blog posts that appear 3 times each week or short and sweet and right to the point. Check out Life As Experienced to see what I’m talking about. Leave a comment, and tell Seth that I sent you.
