Never Ending Vacation
Yes, it was tiring, in terms of the territory to cover. But, it was worth it. We all had a really good time, and didn't OD on the chocolate. I have to say, it is my favorite theme park to date. We have yet to visit Disney with Seth, and some of the smaller ones, but Hershey is definitely on my list in terms of deserving a return visit.
And, being in the Amish country was a nice change of pace. We were on constant look out for corn fields, horse 'n buggies, cow grazing...and Seth's favorite, tractors. Buying a tractor is now on his list for "What Mom & Dad Should Buy Me."
There is a lot to be said for a vacation. While I was having withdrawal a bit from my computer, it was a welcome relief to get a break from it, though I do get email on my Treo phone.
We all slept in the same room in the hotel, and took turns sharing a bed with Seth. There was something sweet about it, and he actually slept later than he does at home, and didn't see any monsters during the night.
He reminded me of me when I was younger. He asked if we were going to stay at the hotel for a long time? He said he wants to stay there all the time.
I know what he means. When I was a child, and even now as an adult, I get sad when a vacation draw to a close. In fact, I start thinking about it knowing the end is near, and want to savor every moment. I especially feel that way now, sharing these special times with Seth. We are creating family memories, and it means that much more.
