Chocolate Presidents

Chet had a speaking engagement in Harrisburg, PA this last week. Since neither one of us had been up to the part of the country, we decided to make a vacation out of it. We drove up (yes, I know we are crazy to drive 50 hours in the car with a two year old, but that is why portable DVD players were invented).

We stopped in Little Rock to visit with Chet's college campus minister and his family. Chet spoke at his church on Sunday morning. We then headed to Nashville where we were able to visit with family and friends before driving the rest of the way to Pennsylvania. Hershey, PA is just outside of Harrisburg. We spent a lot of time (and money) there! Hershey was a fun place to visit, not just because of the chocolate, but it also a very pretty and tranquil town with a fascinating history. We also were able to spend some time with our friends who moved up there a few years ago.

Our first stop was the Hershey Gardens.
Hannah loves being outside and the flowers were gorgeous!
One of my favorites from the day!
Later we toured around town and headed to Chocolate World.
I love the smoke stacks and Hershey Kiss street lights.
Turning the wheel makes the chocolate come down. We had to pull her away from this!
Almost everything cost an admission fee at Chocolate World except for one ride that shows how the chocolate is made. Hannah loved this ride and is still talking about it. We rode it three times!
We then headed to Washington D.C. for a very short, just for fun trip. Hannah was so excited to see Kermit and Dumbo at the Smithsonian Museum of American History. She was not so thrilled to see the White House. We did get to go the zoo, but were a little disappointed at how many exhibits were closed while we were there.
