I found our little keychain photos from trips to Virginia Beach in 2001 and 2003. I wished that I could keep the photos inside because they are starting to fade. Caroline figured out how to take a photo with her iPhone! So here are my little cuties having fun in the sand. It does seem like just yesterday! Of course at the time, we thought these little keychains were way too expensive. Now they are priceless.
We went to Hershey Park last evening and had a blast! Nathaniel and I don't really do many coasters and we had our fill pretty quickly. (He won a stuffed animal for Caroline.) But Caroline and Craig love them, and I was lucky to walk up to the exit of one, just as they posted the photo of those two with their arms in the air in the front car of one of the big coasters! So, I bought it! There aren't too many teenagers that like to hang out with their parents at an Amusement Park, but Caroline and Nathaniel both said they had the best time with us and were lucky kids. I'm so happy! If you ever get a chance to go to Hershey Park then do, because it is a really nice, clean park and they give out free samples of chocolate at the Chocolate World ride! And the town smells like candy and has Hershey Kisses for street lights. :) It's the "sweetest place on earth!" (And in a side note, if you are a fan of "Modern Family" then you probably saw the episode when they go to Disney and Phil gets sick on the rides... we've adopted the phrase "pulling a Dunphy" to describe what us adults try to do on the coasters!) Ha!
