Solar Eclipse April 2024

Our home near Pittsburgh was not in the path of totality for the solar eclipse so we drove north to Erie PA to ensure we could experience the full eclipse. It was an amazing experience that I am sure we will remember forever. The immediate cooling of the air as

Hershey PA

For Aasi’s 13th Birthday we went to Hershey Chocolate World because who does not like Chocolate! The kids got to make their own gigantic Hershey bars and the ride-on tour of the chocolate making process was cool – we rode it several times.
