Our Day in Hershey

This morning, the final day of our post-Easter family sabbath time, we left Lancaster and stopped in Hershey, PA on our way home. We went to ZooAmerica and Hershey’s Chocolate World.

After a couple of very warm days (with 80-degree temperatures) it was a much cooler day (in the 50s). It was also fairly windy. As we got closer to home, we actually hit a wintry mix of precipitation.

Amazingly enough, we came away from Chocolate World without any chocolate! The kids were pretty tired by the time we left (well into nap time), which cut our visit short. But we did share a Hershey’s S’mores Sundae (except for Sarah who wasn’t a fan).

Overall, it was a nice getaway. The kids handled the trip pretty well. While we could have gotten more rest/sleep at night, it wasn’t too bad (the kids usually sleep extremely at home). Ethan did well (again) sleeping in his own big bed (surrounded by a barrier of pillows) but while Sarah would go to sleep in a crib, she didn’t like waking up there during the night. We are hoping her transition back to her own crib goes smoothly tonight!

Here are some photos from today …
