Beginning of the School Year Photos (7th and 9th grade)

Every year, I love to take photos of the boys on or near the first day of school.  I took some before they headed out on their first day.  Then 2 days later, we took the official photos.  I love seeing how much they have grown in a year.   This year they went all out… Continue reading Beginning of the School Year Photos (7th and 9th grade)

Trip Home from Hershey – Blog Post #10

After we were done with Gettysburg, we traveled south to Maryland.  The Imaginative One had never been to Maryland. When we got to the rest stop, he was grumpy.  We had a fight because I got upset with his crankiness. He finally took a nap which helped his mood. We ended up driving on I-70… Continue reading Trip Home from Hershey – Blog Post #10

Gettysburg- Blog Post #9

After we were done in Hershey, we drove an hour south east to Gettysburg. My plan had been to do the car tour.  Supposedly you could do it in about 2 hours or so.  We spent a little over an hour before we decided not to continue with the tour.  We got lost pretty quickly. … Continue reading Gettysburg- Blog Post #9

Chocolate World, Again, and Trolley Ride – Blog Post #8

The next morning, we packed up and then headed back to Chocolate World. Chocolate World has different adventures such as designing your own chocolate bar, a chocolate taste testing experience, a 3D movie, and the Hershey Trolley Works. The Imaginative One only likes plain milk chocolate so making his own chocolate bar and the taste… Continue reading Chocolate World, Again, and Trolley Ride – Blog Post #8

The Rest of the Day at Hershey Park – Blog Post #7

Once the Imaginative One and I met back up, we went to the Boardwalk which is the water park in Hershey Park. Since it was in the 90's, most of the visitors to the park were at the Boardwalk so there was lines on ALL of the water slides and the lazy river.  The Imaginative… Continue reading The Rest of the Day at Hershey Park – Blog Post #7

TBT – Signs of Spring

Spring Has Sprung or Has It? This year, we had snow falling on the first full day of spring.  Almost 300 schools, churches, and even the Air Force base were cancelled or delayed because of the snow. Even though snow has fallen, we have had some signs of spring.  My one and only deciduous tree,… Continue reading TBT – Signs of Spring

Wandering Around Hershey Park ALONE – Blog Post #6

After I finished visiting ZooAmerica, I wandered around the park some more before I was supposed to meet up with the Imaginative One. I enjoyed riding on the Sky View which is a gondola type ride.  You ride over a little lake type ride and past a few of the roller coasters.  I just wish… Continue reading Wandering Around Hershey Park ALONE – Blog Post #6

ZooAmerica – Blog Post #5

After I allowed the Imaginative One to go off on his own, it was my turn to explore the park.  He would not be happy with his mom not wanting to ride all of the roller coasters.  I like roller coasters but some are too much for me and it was really hot.  (90s) One… Continue reading ZooAmerica – Blog Post #5

Thursday Morning at Hershey Park – Blog Post #4

After we were finished with Chocolate World, we crossed over to the Hershey Park area and then waited in line before entering the park. Before we could go on any rides, we needed to find out about the all day drink package I bought and the all day food package.  I needed to know where… Continue reading Thursday Morning at Hershey Park – Blog Post #4

Back to Chocolate World – Blog Post #3

The next morning, we got up and ate breakfast in our room.  Even though they had coffee in the lobby area of the hotel, it was only okay to drink. I opted to go to Chocolate World to get coffee from there before heading over to Hershey Park.   I realized the night before that… Continue reading Back to Chocolate World – Blog Post #3
