Vacations

This week's Picnic Table Talk is all about vacations-great places to vacation with kids, where you love to vacation and where you might be vacationing this summer.

Vacation-aaahhhhh, don't you just love that word!

We just got back from our first vacation of the summer-the reason I haven't been around the last week or so. We always camp with my sister's family and 2 other families for the 4th of July week. Great friends, great food, great fun, not so great weather, but we got to do everything we wanted to do. Lots of hiking, swimming, biking, playing and eating. There's a delicious ice cream shop nearby and I have to admit we visited 4 times this year-I think that's our record. My kids did not want to come home and and are still in friend withdrawal.

I still can't share any current pictures-blah, blah, blah, still on the old computer, but here's a few pictures from our past 4th of July camping trips.






Sometimes, our 4th of July week overlaps with Christmas in July so you aren't seeing things-that is Santa on the hayride!

We have two more vacations planned for this summer. We always camp at the beach in August with the same group from the 4th of July-just as much fun-and we're doing something new this year. In a couple of weeks, we're going to go to Hershey Park. We are very excited!! We've never been but it looks cool and everyone we know who's been there, loves it. Any place that gives you a sample of chocolate after a tour can't be bad!! I'm hoping we might be able to stop at the Crayola Crayon Museum on the way down but I'm not sure yet how close it is or if it's on our route.

Later, I'll share a great place to vacation with kids-this post is getting long and we have a dr appt this morning. I can't wait to see everyone else's vacation plans and learn about some places we might be able to visit in the future-have a great day and enjoy!!!

Have fun in Hershey! Sounds yummy!

I heard from family that has visited Hershey that it really smells like chocolate in the streets. Sign me up for that! I hope it's as fun a trip as your last one.

Hershey Park sounds great, I bet the Crayola Crayon Museum would be fun too. Have you been to Sesame Place? That's one place we think could be fun to go that's drivable...

What fun family tradition, to camp each year. I bet you make wonderful family memories each year. We just visited Hershey and really like the Chocolate World. We didn't do the park because it looked like too much to deal with for just a short stop. Plus I wasn't sure how much ER could do. CW is free to get in, so that was also a lot cheaper too. Can't wait to hear about your trip! I really wanted to do the Crayola stop too but it was in NO way on our drive but I may plan for a stop if we go visit family in Philly again. Looks like a blast.
