Two Kids In A Candy Store

Wednesday June 25, 2008

We are in an RV Park close to Lancaster, Pa. It is a place that Kathy and I have stayed before. It overlooks a couple of Amish farms. Kory has enjoyed riding in the RV.

Today we travelled to Hershey. It was like two kids in a candy shop! Opps we were in a candy shop!

Here are the two kids and behind them is the candy shop.

Kory had never seen so much candy in one place. It is overwhelming. Just breathing in the chocolate-laced air you put on 5 pounds. We watched the 3D movie about Hershey candies and toured the mock factory. Kory even participated by filling a candy box with kisses for his sister Shelby.

Just like Disney they have characters here also.

In downtown Hershey the signature wrapped and unwrapped streetlights that resemble chocolate kisses line Chocolate Ave.

After buying all of the candy we could possibly carry we then toured the Milton Hershey School. As you remember from our last trip this is a school for underprivileged children from K through 12. They live and work at the Hershey School free of charge. When they graduate the school gives them a scholar ship based upon their performance at the school, both academic and behavior wise. Milton Hershey and his wife founded the school in 1909 for orphaned boys. Today it has expanded to include boys and girls and children of all ethnic backgrounds. One of the graduates became president and Chairman of the Board of Hershey.

I am too full of candy to continue. We are renaming the MoHo the chocolate bus.

Happy Trails!
