Off to Grandma's house we go!

Over the trees and through Pennsylvania's highways, to Grandma's house we went! Our first family vacation was a great success and a lot of fun. Evan rode on an airplane for the very first time, and thankfully we survived! The way there was smooth and uneventful, but the way back was full of delay and let's just say not a 17 month olds idea of fun haha! Airplanes aside, our trip was wonderful and included an amusement park visit, a day in Philadelphia, lots of yummy food, some shopping and of course plenty of quality grandma time!
Our first stop was the deliciously fun Hershey park where Evan rode some of his very first rides, including the merry-go-round(my favorite) and even got to see a brown bear in real life at the new Hershey zoo.
On Tuesday Chris and I took a train into Phily while Evan spent the morning with Grandma. We saw the major historical landmarks like the liberty bell, toured the famous Reading station, and of course no trip to the city of love is complete without this token tourist picture. It was a good day, and full of walking, walking, and did I mention walking?
(Yes, I intentionally blew up the cupcake picture!)
No doubt the best part was seeing Evan spend quality time with his grandma...and playing with the new toys she got for him. :-) Thanks for being a wonderful host Sharon, we so wish you lived closer!
