The next morning we all got up and drove to Hershey, Pennsylvania to meet James, Chelsea, David and Sharon. The trip from Towanda to Hershey took about 3 hours. Sam and Finn drank Icey's on the first leg of the trip - prompting "side of the road" bathroom breaks. Sam even got in on the fun - he used the potty for the first time at a gas station. As a reward we got him some mini M & M's and Swedish Fish. I don't know if it actually counts as "going." I tickled him while he was on the potty and I think that I released his bladder. He was so proud, nonetheless.
When we got to Hershey, we checked into the room. The boys were so excited about staying in a hotel.
After supper everyone came back to our hotel for "wrestling."
The next morning we all went to Hershey Park. We stopped for breakfast at Cafe Zooka.
Riding the tram over to the park.
Next we went to ride the "Comet." This is one of the wooden roller coasters in the park. Finn and David sat in the front row. This ride was really fast and jar us to death. Finn made it through and didn't fuss or cry, but didn't want to ride it again.
Then we went to ride the swings. Finn and Sam both rode. Finn loved it. Sam did not. He was a little nervous before the ride got started. When the ride started he started to cry. He cried through the entire ride. Every he swung by where we were standing, all of us cheered him on. This had no effect on Sam's mood whatsoever. I bet looked hilarious though.
At the end of the day the boys rode the remaining kids ride. They almost got kicked off this ride for wiggling too much.
Overall, it was a great day. We had nice weather, good company and the boys had a ball. Thank you Gran and Pa for a great day.
