I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Hershey's Chocolate World

Me- Hershey's Chocolate World, wow! This summer, I went to Hershey's Chocolate World. First we, went on a trolley ride. The lady who was our guide had the same name as my sister. Her assistant was named Wilbur. It was completely an act and Wilbur was supposed to be stupid. At one point the tour guide said, "Now is the time for people to take out their cameras." Wilbur said he had to go home and get his camera. He got out of the trolley. Really, he only went to the back of the trolley. He kept dressing up in different costumes to tell the story of Milton Hershey. He dressed up as Milton Hershey's father, as Milton Hershey's mother, a 10 year old boy working on the farm, and as chef, and as a soldier and more. My favorite was the chef. He was so funny. When he was the chef., he said he spoke Swedish, but he just kept babbling nonsense and making up random noises. Next, we went to a 3D movie. This guy was supposed to give a lecture. Then, this cartoon man came out and took over. At the end, he finally tried a Hershey Bar and did a finale. The movie was actually 4D, but it was also 3D. Every single second was 3D. If you took your glasses off, everything would just be blurry. At some points, you got sprayed with water for the 4D. Next, we did the Chocolate tasting adventure. There where four or five different kinds of chocolate. The instructor told us about them. Then, we had to look, listen to the crack of breaking off a piece, smell and taste each one. Next, we created our own candy. There were machines. You put in if you wanted white chocolate, milk chocolate or dark chocolate. You chose from different options what you want inside the chocolate bar. Also, you could have sprinkles or not. On another machine, you could design your own wrapper. We went to the store. My Mom, Dad and sister got matching shirts. I got a toy Hershey's kiss. I had a great time at Hershey's Chocolate World, and I hope to go back some day.

Mom - This past summer, we went to Hershey's Chocolate World. The last time I went to Hershey, there was only the Chocolate Tour ride that tells you how the chocolate is made. When I was even younger than that, there were actually tours through the Hershey Factory itself, but  you couldn't really go on the factory floor or anything, you could just peek through the windows. Now, there is Hershey's Chocolate  World, and there is so much more to it than just a the Chocolate Tour ride. There is  a Trolley ride. While on the ride, you learn about the history of Milton Hershey and Hershey chocolate. Also, you get to sample, Hershey's kisses, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, and little Hershey Bars. There is a 3D movie after which you get to sample more chocolate. There is a Chocolate Tasting where there you get to sample a lot of different kinds of chocolate. There is a Create Your Own Candy Bar where you get to create and sample your own chocolate bar. There is even still the Hershey's Chocolate Tour ride after which you get to sample still more chocolate. So, if you love chocolate Hershey's Chocolate World is the place for you if you are on a diet or you don't like chocolate, maybe not so much.

And that's our view. Do you like chocolate and if so what is your favorite kind?

Tune in tomorrow for Funny Friday.
