"Caramels are only a fad. Chocolate is a permanent thing" ~ Milton Hershey

We had the most amazing time in Hershey PA! Last week, Sunday-Wednesday, we visited Hershey! We stayed at the Hershey Hotel...which was right across the street from Chocolate World and Hershey Park! The Hotel was beautiful and the Park was so fun! I documented our adventure in TONS of pictures. It was a lot of firsts...mainly, Chloe's first time riding Amusement park rides and being at a water park! Hershey Park had SO much for kids! Any adult ride you can think of, they had it in a miniature version for the kiddies. Once she got warmed up, she was all over the place. The Water Park within the Amusement Park was amazing too! It has a little wave pool for small kids and so much more. I caught myself telling Blake that we definitely need to go back. I mean really, it is somewhere I would NEVER have thought to visit, but it was one of the best Family Vacation spots I have ever seen! Oh, bonus, there was chocolate everywhere. Any time you wanted was there. They gave us Hershey Bars as soon as we checked in...every night, they would put Hershey kisses on our night stand! So fun! We had a great time. Oh, and even though Chloe was running on little to no sleep--she did fabulous! She was in a great mood most of the time and behaved so well! Great trip indeed!!

We are on our way! The first picture is us boarding the plane...the ticket taker gave Chloe some important paperwork to give to the Pilot...she felt important having a Big Job! As you can see, she was excited to be on the plane!

These were the kisses that they would put on our nightstand...Chloe and I enjoyed them! :)

The Rides at the Park...

Chloe and Blake

She loved this ride!

The Water Park...

Chloe and Jenks

I loved this picture...she really enjoyed this part of the water park...water was shooting out of the ground. She ran around like crazy!
The Chocolate Factory...

Before the 3D show and the tour, we ate lunch inside. Blake let Chloe pick out a fun dessert...she chose a yummy Chocolate cupcake (that I ended up finishing off) :)

First, we did the 3D was about the History of Chocolate. I enjoyed it, but it scared Chloe to death!! Maybe she will like it next time.

(this picture was taken before we went it...that is why she is happy)
Next, we did the Interactive Ride. It explained how Chocolate was made from start to finish.

Every time the Talking Cows came by, Chloe would make the above face...very funny.
This is a picture of my sweet girl on the last night we were in Hershey. The bear she is holding is "Hershey." Blake bought it for her in the Chocolate Factory...she sleeps with it every night now!

Finally, while in the Park, Blake decided he just had to win Chloe a prize. The Bear below is evidence that Blake is pretty good at Amusement Park games. The Bear is HUGE! Don had to check it as luggage so that we could get it home. It kind of scares Chloe because it is so big...I'm sure she will get use to it!
