Wordless Wednesday

It’s time for a photo dump from my iPhone.  I couldn’t just pick one picture for today’s Wordless Wednesday post so I thought I would post some pictures of our weekend in Hershey Park!  We had a great day visiting with my college friend Janelle and her family.  It was so nice getting together and my kids actually behaved!  All the kids got along and played nicely. It was a great time.

Saturday night Joey headed off to the Dave Matthews Concert and I stuck around the hotel with the boys.  It was bedtime and after a day of playing I figured that they would pass out! Nope, I was wrong.  Ben passed out around 9pm and Sean followed around 10pm.  It wasn’t too bad though because they had some new McDonald’s toys to annoy me play with.

The next day we headed to Hershey Park in the horrible heat.  It was an extremely hot and humid day but we still had a blast.  It started off a little slow because Ben doesn’t like to walk.  So I had to run back and rent a stroller for him.  Then he was too hot to get on a few rides.  Finally after some water and a slushy he bounced back and had a great time.   The kids enjoyed a ton of rides, the sea lion show skee-ball and of course french fries!

Everything went pretty smoothly that day.  Then we stopped back into Chocolate World for a delicious snack and it happened.  The meltdown of all meltdowns. The one where everyone looks at you like you are trying to kidnap your own child.  The one where other parents are giving you dirty looks and judging because your kid is screaming his head off and there’s nothing that you can do.  Yeah it was that kind of meltdown.   Joey had to hold one of his hands and I held the other and we basically carried him out of the massive store and back to the car.   The entire time he was screaming his head off and was trying everything in his power to annoy us.  It was a long day and everyone was hot and tired so I know it wasn’t all of his fault.

Here are some pictures of the fun times at the park!

The boys found the giant Hershey bar.  For the first time ever, Ben wasn’t shy or afraid of a character! Yeah!!!  Maybe he will sit on Santa’s lap this year.

Sean loved having this ride all to himself.  I think he went on it 3 or 4 times.  I lost track.

Sean was really into the sea lion show!

Sean’s last day of camp is tomorrow and then we are off for a pool play date with friends!  It’s going to be another hot one out there. I know I am having trouble breathing when I am outside so make sure that you all take care of yourself if you are spending any time out in this heat wave!!!!!  Is it too early to put up my Fall decorations? I can dream right? My favorite season has to be coming up soon, because this heat is pure torture!

Well that’s all for now! I’ll be back tomorrow for Throwback Thursday!



  1. Oh totally looks like you had such a fun time and so glad to see. I know it is so hot out and remember being pregnant with Lily how miserable it was. Try to keep cool and make sure you drink plenty of water. Thinking of you, Erin!!
