I love chocolate

As an end of school year treat we went up to Hershey park.  Last year we just went for the day, this time we decided to do two days in the park and spend the night in the Hershey Lodge.

Soph cracks me up, as you can see from the pictures below she’s not scared of the characters–runs right up and gives them a giant hug, high-five whatever but WILL not take a “good” picture with them….

she’s a reese’s peanut butter cup this year meaning she can go on some slightly bigger kid rides.At first she was terrified of any and all rides, a little pushing along though and we ended up taking her down the coal crasher (water/boat based roller-coaster) twice!!! The second time with her saying she wanted to be in front which DIDN’T happen but it was fun to see the change!  The ride below needed mom the first day, the second not so much!

It was an awesome family weekend full of all kind of treats.

There is a pretty cool zoo there, in addition to all the rides.

she tried her hand at  skeet ball (sort of) and learned the value of tickets when playing arcade games.  The biggest high-light to ME was back at the resort in the swimming pool she started swimming for real (well she now propels herself underwater, and blows bubbles –she still need to work on her arms) but I think she’s in a great place for her swimmming lessons that start next week.  She also started just jumping off the side with no encouragement and without us standing there. Pretty cool!

Hershey from the rides to the swimming to the most delicious chocolatini’s back at the resort we had a great time and we’re already planning next year’s trip!
