hersheypark. at night.

Everyone have a nice Fourth? I can't believe it already happened! Where is this summer going!? Don't get me started.

One of the things I had in my mind to do with the kids this summer was to ride rides at night at Hersheypark. I don't really get it, because we ride a lot of rides at night during their Halloween and Christmas thing... but you know me, I get an idea in my head and I run with it. I also enlisted my parents in this endeavor.

We ate dinner at home beforehand and arrived shortly after 6. The weather was nice, albeit a little warm, but the crowds weren't bad and the kids could basically go on whatever ride they wanted to. My mom and I were brave and took the kids on the ferris wheel which can I just say how terrifying that is?! No belts. No bars. Just openness. How they don't have more accidental deaths is beyond me. I'm not sure I'll handle that one again for awhile. My arms still ache from the death grip I had on Dom. Don't let those pictures fool you... I had a helluva time keeping my anxiety hidden from my kids. That's a full time job, I know. 

Anyways we were there late! Like almost 10. The kids were exhausted and dirty but they were living the dream! Summer of Yes! Check!



  1. oh this looks hot and fun. i mean who doesnt love nighttime park things. i havent done such a thing in ages. oh summer, how are you half over? (dont hate me for saying that ha)

  2. This reminds me of boardwalk evenings at the beach!

    Love how the sign in the background of the surfboards says "Be Fearless." I think that's literally your sign to add a little fearless to your life ;o)

  3. awww it all looks so picturesque at night!!! you guys are champs. i am like shutting down after dinner these days! and good job hiding your anxiety. it's tough! i don't think i do it all that well! haha!
