Vacation Time!

Happy Summer!!!! We just got back from a great (but short) trip to Hershey Park and the Crayola Factory. Be sure to check out the photos I posted on Facebook that really highlight the trip.

We woke up bright and early to head out Monday morning. We arrived shortly after the park opened and quickly made our way onto the rides. At Hershey, the girls rode their first wooden real wooden roller coaster (I think it was also mommy's LAST wooden roller coaster really rattles my head in a bad way) as well as their first loop-da-loop coaster ride (the Sooper Dooper Looper). I believe the log flume reigned supreme as Catrina's favorite ride while Brynne preferred the stomach dropping sensation of the "Falcon" (a ride where you ride in a cage and it spins fast and takes you up). Both girls fell in love with the pirate ship ride.... we had the pleasure of riding this one just after eating. Yay.

Tuesday morning we got up and hit the Chocolate Factory where we were able to make our own chocolate bars! This was so much fun. Now, I know you're thinking it... what did we do with our chocolate bars at the theme park? Luckily, Hershey provides a bag holding service! Once we finished there we decided to hit the water park first to try to avoid the long lines from the day before. We went on various water slides and enjoyed the cool interactive water area where they frequently dump a HUGE bucket of water all over the awaiting masses. I stood out of harm's reach with the camera :)

On Wednesday we headed to Easton, Pa to see the Crayola Factory where the girls had some hands on creative fun.

All in all it was a great way to celebrate the half way point of summer. Coming up the girls will be going to Phillies Bridge Farm Camp as well as the Ulster County Fair. So much summer still to come!
