The girls loved the Hershey factory. They had a cute ride that took you around and showed how the chocolate was made and the girls favorite part Singing Cows. After the tour the girls got to package some kisses which they thought was really fun. We had some fun taking pictures with some huge Hershey Syrup piggy banks. Then it was off to see the singing cows once again. We were lucky enough to run into some LDS Missionaries in the gift shop to snap a family photo of us. On our way out of Hershey we hit the outlets and scored on some boy jammies for $2.50 a pair and the Disney Outlet. Of course nothing was on sale for girls and they had nothing in Boston's size so the girls are now enjoying breaking in all the Cars jammies for Boston! We decided to head back towards home about an hour to Allentown, PA, where Todd scored us a huge King suite with a separate living room for the girls to sleep in for the same price as a queen room. The only downside... apparently on the east coast a heated pool just means an indoor pool because that pool was FREEZING!! Unfortunately for Todd that didn't matter to Boston and Mia and he was stuck playing mermaids for awhile. Monday we ate at Boston's Gourmet Pizza... we were hoping they sold shirts or something so we could get one for Boston. It turns out they didn't but when we told our waitress that was why we came the manager sent her back out with one of their glasses for us to take home. Tuesday was a long day of driving. In total we left the hotel at 10am and got home at 7pm. But we did make 2 stops one at Todd's favorite part of the trip Cabela's, which is a huge outdoors store it was the biggest store I've ever seen. They even sold pre-made cabins which were out in front and they had dog kennels and a horse corral in the parking lot that you could use while you shopped. We also stopped for dinner in Burlington, Ma at the Rainforest Cafe. Everyone thought that was pretty cool.Kya ended up in my lap every thunder storm and Boston got upset everytime the gorillas went off... it didn't help that they were 2 ft from our table. Although it was so cute by the end Boston held out a french fry to the big one as if to say if I give you this will you please shut up. We came out of the mall to a huge snow storm and 5 o' clock traffic... a little stressful but none the less we made it home in time to play volleyball at the YMCA. All in all the kids slept almost the entire time we were in the car and just were awesome. Boston definitely gets MVP for just being hauled around and never making a peep. Runner up goes to Todd who did about 95% of the driving and made it home through the snow tight butt cheeks and all.
In The End is Was HOME SWEET HOME!!
A HUGE thanks to Michelle and Lexi for walking our dogs each day and to Taylor for watching the kids so we could play volleyball!!
