One of the best things about a tradition is passing it down to the next generation and it seems as though that is something that we are doing with now with Michelle and Bella and the Sweetest Place on Earth. I am of course, referring to Hershey Park. Every year for the past twenty some years, Mr. Wonderful and I have taken the kids to Hershey after Thanksgiving as a way of ushering in the holiday season. It is just beautiful up there this time of year and so much fun! There is plenty to do as many of the rides are open, including a special trolley ride through the town with a 'special' visitor, Chocolate World, over 2 million lights decorate the park and if you stay at one of the Hershey properties, there are special events all day and evening long that are very family centered. It has always been a very special time for us and this past weekend we were able to share it once again, this time with Michelle and Shawn, Bella and Aiden. What a blessing!
Friday evening we went up right after school let out for the kids. We checked into our hotel and grabbed a quick-and I do mean quick!, dinner. Then we headed over to the Hershey Theatre to see Disney's Phineas and Ferb Live on Stage. The kids were totally mesmerized by it and I have to say, Jim and Shawn really enjoyed it too! What is it about men and cartoons? Long after Bella has left the room, Jim will still sit in front of the television watching her TV programs and if I should dare turn it off! Well, let's just say I've learned my lesson. Ha!
