I haven't written much original items in a while. There has been a lot going on over the last few weeks. This summer has seemed to speed along at a pretty good clip. The kids are getting ready to go back to school in a couple of weeks. Its pretty crazy how fast time has gone by.
On the 16th of July we took a family trip to Hershey Park. The 16th was a Wednesday. We tried to go in the middle of the week in an attempt to go with reduced crowds. We met our friends Will & Chirsty and thier kids. The kids always have a good time when they get together. They are almost like extended family for us as we've been friends for a little more than 10 years. We got to Hershey just after 10. The day was really nice. A little on the warm side, but tolerable for the most part. The kids went on thier first rollercoaster (The Trailblazer). Everyone had a great time. We brought swim suits with us so that we could enjoy the water park section as well. We didn't plan well and left the swim suits in the car with the idea of changing later in the day. This was pretty poor planning since the water park is on the complete oposite side of the park from where we parked. Oh well - next time. It is a shame that we only get to see Will & Christy every more. We always have a great time together.
We went to our first baseball game the other night. My companies federal practice had a night out at the ballpark. We went to see teh Washington Nationals play the Cincinatti Reds. The weather cooperated for us, but the seats were in a less than desirable location. We were really high up there. At the end of the day, everyone had a good time.
Oh yeah... The Nats won 10 - 6
I am looking forward to our weekend at Massanutten this weekend. We didn't take a true vacation, so these little trips is how we are trying to handle it. The resort sounds nice, so we'll have to see how things go.
