Can You Guess Where We Were?

Can you see what they are holding in their hands?

Do you see the chocolate all over his lips?

Yep, you guessed it.

We were at Hershey's Chocolate World,

the Sweetest Place on Earth.

Here the little's were so intent watching the singing cows

and learning all about how Hershey's chocolate is made.

Nolan was there too, but he was on my back in the Ergo and

it was a bit hard to take a picture of him back there. LOL!

So today was Gabriella's other specialist appointment at Hershey Medical Center. It was just me and the little's. Let me tell you, I have found a way to have the quickest dr. visits ever. Just take a bunch of little's along and they speed you through! LOL! Seriously, last weeks appointment was the quickest ever. Today's visit was a bit longer but that's only because of us waiting to be seen. The actual time the specialist was with us was shorter than normal. Hmmmm...maybe I could rent the little's out for others who want short dr. visits. LOL! All in all they did really well. I took the portable DVD player and when we got to the room I turned it on but they were all more interested in the books in the room so I turned it off within 10 minutes. You should have seen the Doc's face when she saw all these little people in that tiny room. LOL! She says "oh you brought the whole family today." I said no this is only some of them, there's more at home. :) HA! It would have made a priceless picture. :)

Anytime my woe-is-me-attitude rears it's ugly head I just need to remember being at the Medical Center. It reminded me how blessed we really are. Yes, we have issues but to look into the eyes of the children that are suffering terrible, horrendous diseases and to see their moms and dads with slumped shoulders and eyes filled with worry and just makes you count your blessings, ya know?!

I decided we needed some sweet to counteract the other stuff so off we went to Chocolate World. It was PACKED! Buses, cars from all over the country and a trolley unloading and reloading constantly. I'm so glad we ventured out. It was well worth it for the memories!

It was Sweet! :)

I haven't been to Hershey since our honeymoon. =) I bet my kids would love it now.

I agree about those waiting rooms at children's hospitals. It is sobering to sit there and look around and see how much we have to be thankful for.

Ive been reading all your past blogs, being amazed at your story and knowing that as a foster/adoptive familY i feel so alone becuase we dont know anyone near us who is doing the same thing and then I see HP. Hershey is like 30 mins from us! Just to be close to someone geographically makes me feel better. But maybe IM just weird! Anyways... God is using you to bless me all over today! :o) Thanks!
