Summer Vacation 2009 Part 1

We just got home from a very jam packed vacation back east. Here is what we did.
Wednesday -travel day. This was Sydney's first time on a plane and she did really well. I'm sure everyone who was sitting around us got really paniced when they saw us coming with our 4 kids, but they all did great.

Thursday: We met my sister-in-law Carrie and her kids at Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia. This was super fun, the kids could have stayed here all day, but we limited it to 4 hours.

Friday: We went to Dutch Wonderland, this is an amusement park for kids. It was great, there was nothing the older kids could not ride and the best part of the whole experience was that we never had to wait in a line all day.

Later the evening we headed over the Chocolate World.

Saturday: We met up with my sister Andrea and her fam, by brother Jeff and his fam, my brother Brad and his son, my parents and 2 more of my nephews for a super crowded but fun day at Hershey Park.

Sunday: we went to church and then had a family lunch before we left for my sisters in Virginia. On the way there we stopped by my sister Alisons.
Okay this vacation was to long for one post, so more to come.

Can you send me some copies of the family pic at Hershey?

Did you sleep for 2 days once you got home?

It was a crazy vacation for you. I'm still tired and didn't do half of what you did! I'd love to have the family pic too. Do we know Princess Gerty?

Was chocolate world an amusement park then? Or was it my fantasy: a world made completely out of chocolate? Chocolate trees... chocolate people... did you ever watch this?
