Today we said good bye to our friends and ventured 5 hours north to go to Hershey park. We arrived around 3:00 and stayed until closing at 10:00. The kids had sooo much fun. There were many roller coasters that Riann and Rileigh liked (13 in the park) and many other rides that Zak and Randi enjoyed. We thought 7 hours there would have been plenty, but we didn't even see the entire park. It wasn't because of the lines as there really wasn't any. Most of the time, they had to wait one turn and then it was their turn. The park is just that big. We had tired kiddos by the end of the night, but they all kept "it together". Unfortunately, no pictures at Hershey as no one wanted to carry a camera and Jodi's phone had a slight mishap in Virginia and was no longer working.Read more

Sjokolade sjokolade sjokolade!!!!!
Visited Hershey Chocolate World and designed our own personalised chocolates 🍫.
I got up early, mostly so I didn't get towed, and headed over to Hershey world. Both Carrie and Mike warned me that I would most like be disappointed and they were totally right. It was a lame ride that told you how chocolate was made. I was liking forward to seeing the factory. I got my free candy and headed out.Read more

We are on our way home. We have spent the last couple of days of our trip with some peeps we love, the Ghilanis. Nice place to relax, play and laugh. I love listening to Pat, Barb and Paul talk. They crack me up. We spent two nights there.
A couple of days ago, we went to Hershey. PA. It was a smart move to go early on Friday instead of Thursday, our first plan. We got there around 9:30 AM. Not too crowded. We saw the 4D movie first. It was cute. The Hershey kiss in the movie actually communicates with the audience including wishing me a Happy Birthday. She asked where I was in the audience and wouldn't continue until I acknowledged her. Pretty cute. Obviously someone is able to see and hear the audience and make her talk. The kids loved it. It was a cute movie. After, we went on the automated ride through the fake chocolate factory. It was cute and reminiscent of Disney but FREE. Everyone got a mini chocolate bar after each activity. Then we spent $75 in the store. Phhffft. We've been eating a lot of chocolate the past couple of days. I have to detox when I get home.
We made it to the Ghilanis on Friday afternoon. We enjoyed a nice bonfire and a late night chatting. The next afternoon, we spent poolside. Great day. 80s, warm and the water was warm. I even swam. What?! We had a casual evening at home by another bonfire chatting and laughing. We celebrated my birthday and had a really nice day. It's nice because all of our kids get along and play. Nice kids too.
Now we are on our way home. 5 hours to our house, our pups, our new driveway (and the Beasts new resting spot) and our bed. We have had an awesome time. We created great memories and we look forward to the next one. 14 states including Michigan and Ohio in 16 days...check √.Read more
