Down to Hershey

This past Sunday I took the day off of work and Kristina and I went down to Hershey, Pa. to visit the Davis'. For those who don't know, they left us this summer to become House Parents at Milton Hershey School. We were really excited, this was the first time we had seen them since the wedding reception.

It was a really easy drive down there; all the way down 84, then on 81. No tolls, traffic or bad weather. We left here just after 9 on Sunday morning and arrived just after 2pm down there. The house they are living in is amazing. Their apartment is attached right to the kids house, which is huge. It was nice that they didn't have any kids yet so we were able to utilize the entire house while we were down there.

This is our "hotel room" where me and Kristina slept.

It was a nice relaxing time while we were down there. We just hung out a bunch, visited Jon and Kate +8's house (not very exciting as there was no one visible from the outside), and went to a really sweet mall. We visited Sierra at Chocolate World and I bought some chocolate bars. There was a 5-pound bar that you could buy for $30, but I stuck with the 1/2-pound bar. We also went on a tour of the school, visited a couple of the houses Ace and Debbie were working at and Kristina got to go to the outlet stores. And finally me and Ace got to talk a bunch about Wheel of Time, which I think was cathartic for the both of us.

On the return journey we got stuck in some traffic and tried to detour, then quit the detour after the GPS wanted to take us home by way of Iowa. It was a little longer ride than expected but we got home and in bed relatively early so all ended well. All in all we had a great time and can't wait to go back. We are hoping everything works out so we can soon.
