Vacation… | Jennifer Probst

    I LOVED Sesame Place! And of course Hershey – even though I heard they moved the factory to Mexico. So true with organic-so expensive – the one thing you should try the switch is with milk.

    Ahh….the best laid
    I think you always get inspired when you go on a vacation. Remember in Italy when we waited in line for the Uffizi Gallery for two hours and we met those girls from Australia, who where back packing across Europe? You said, maybe that’s what we should have done. Then I reminded you how we, who couldn’t live without clean towels and got upset if our air conditioner wasn’t cranking in our room when we got back to our hotel, could never make it sleeping in hostels. You snapped right back into
    And I’m glad you wrote that your European days are over but only for the moment because we will definately be getting back to Italy some day. Yes next time we may be the retirees with the black socks and sandals on the tour like so many of our companion travelers in 95 but make no mistake we’re going back. 🙂

    This reminds me so much of the drive vacations we always took when I was a kid. No Sesame Place, but we did Lancaster and Amish country (Shoe Fly Pie!!!), Hershey, Gettysburgh (enough pictures, Dad!!!)etc.

    And the motel with the pool. Very cool.

    We didn’t have reality shows or organic anything then. (Or maybe EVERYTHING was organic then. Who really knows. Sometimes I’m not sure there’s any real difference in the supermarket except for the expense!)

  4. Jen, I remember those days. When my husband and I took the kids to Hershey, that was in the days when they let you go into the factory on a guided tour. The smell of chocolate was indescribable but wonderful. Went back later with oldest granddaughter in tow, she was three and in love with Cookie Monster. Went to Sesame, then Hershey and on to western Pa. to an amusement park where we got to ride three times through Mr. Rodger’s world. Ashley would have had us go more times but Granny couldn’t abide the thought. Didn’t get any vibes about anything but chocolate. Janet

    Hi Jen!
    My kids LOVED Sesame Place. We went several times. Have you ever been to Splash Down Beach? It’s right here in Dutchess County (Off Rt. 84). It’s small but fun.

    And I welcome an opportunity for the kids to power down so we can play RummyQ or Banana Grams or now our new favorite game, Scrabble Slap!
