Spring Break

This past week was spring break.  We had planned to go to Niagara Falls because we found an awesome Groupon.  But when the weather forecast was below 15 degrees, we thought that travelling 7 hours to walk around in freezing weather with 2 young kids may not be the wisest thing to do.  So we looked more on Groupon and found another great in Hershey, PA.  Let me tell you people--It was awesome. It's only 2 hours from us and we had a blast. Let me tell you all about it with pictures, of course :)

We swam in the hotel pool every day, which we had all to ourselves.
Aren't their suits cute, by the way?  I've waited since the end of last summer to put those cute things on them :)

"This whole bed is mine?!!!"

A dream come true

I'm a mint lover. Junior mints and York...yum!

I kind of wish that was real.  It's a piggy bank.

We watched the 4D movie available.  It was okaaaaaay. Not worth the money though.  Nate was terrified by the talking candy bars. 

The free ride to see how Hershey's Milk chocolate was made.  Nate is still talking about the singing cows. 

We spent a lot of time in a "Unique toys and games" store. There were some cool toys there. We also found a 32,000 piece puzzle. 32,000 pieces!!!!!! 

The start of our Indian Echo Caverns tour. It was really cool.

Our groupon included this chocolate tasting tour. We had 6 different chocolates from around the world. One was amazing, a couple were okay, and a couple were NASTY.
The museum told the history of Milton Hershey (he's kind of an incredible guy) and the history of hershey chocolate. I wish they still sold cute boxes of chocolate like this!



Such a fun place! The kids loved it and we got free ice cream! I have to add that it wasn't just a sample of ice cream, we got as much as we wanted!  And I'm kind of obsessed with ice cream, so you better believe I had more than I am willing to admit :) And I loved every bit of it!

Nate's favorite

Well there you have it--a wonderful spring break! We sure are going to miss having these long breaks when school is over and real working life begins.
