Hershey Park Happy!

I'm backtracking just a bit here...on Labor Day we spent the day at Hershey Park with some old friends of ours.  We had tons of fun...if you've never been to must's our favorite amusement park!!

Feeding the ducks!???
(We came all this way and they wanted to stop and feed the ducks!  It kind of reminded me of when we've gone to Disney World and they want to wait in line to get autographs!!)

Duck butt!!  (The kids all thought this was hysterical!)

Tree Huggers!

The Champ & his buddy had to ride in front!

The Storm Runner....Charlie with his hands up...crazy kid!!

Cool boys!!

Sweet girls.....

The thrill of victory!!! 
(He won this on his first try!!!! Can you believe it??)

The agony of defeat!  :(  
(I don't know what was worse....the fact that he didn't win, or the fact that his brother did.)

Don't worry, we hugged him up and made him feel better.
There's always the next time...right??

Gotta love Hershey Park! When my girls were younger, the elementary and middle schools did field trips to Hershey, and I always made sure to volunteer as a chaperone! BTW, on a completely different subject, it's that time of week again--Silly Sunday Sweepstakes time. Come on over and play along!

We love HP!!! We went up at the end of August just before school started. Can you believe I have lived here in NoVa for 30 years and went to Penn State and had NEVER been there?! We are now making it an annual trip because we loved it so much. I even got my kids on the Wild Cat...their first roller coaster ever...I was terrified but they thought it was awesome...oh it's good to be 8 and 6!

It's been a while since I've been to visit! I'm having trouble with my computer showing pictures tonight for some reason, bummer! SOUNDS like you had a great time at Hershey Park! And congrats to your daughter for getting her braces off (my hubby is an orthodontist, so I KNOW what a HUGE deal it is!!! Those guys...they can be extremely picky, but all worth it in the least I hope it was :)
