hersheypark at night

I know we go to Hersheypark when it is dark out a lot in the fall and winter... I mean they don't call it Hersheypark in the Dark for nothing right? But there is just something about going during the summer that makes it different. The weather is infinitely better, for one. And there are no bedtimes. That's huge. 

I dragged Matt along.... Which this may come as a surprise to you all but he doesn't like Hersheypark. I think he is parked out. He doesn't really go on rides so it's more of a support mission. He helps me with Dom and I go on all the thrill rides. So to ease this trip we went to dinner (with drinks!) beforehand. Nothing like eating a ton of food and then riding all the coasters in all the land. I had this amazing steak salad with all the blue cheese and it was seriously just amazing. So if you go to Houlihans in Hershey I am fully vouching for that salad.

Letty was allowed on a new ride for her this night, The Great Bear. She is like riiiiight on the cusp of being the next height category so I guess it depends on who is working the measure stick thingy.... We also got a glimpse of our future as she took off in her little convertible all by her lonesome. I finally put my anxiety aside and took the big kids on the adult swings and yeah no thanks I'll sit that ride out from here on till forever. Not only did it make me want to puke but my anxiety was through the roof.... Those things go high, people. Like, real high. And fun fact? When I got off the ride my iWatch asked me if I was currently swimming... So there's that. 

Ah those lights though! A great summer night!
