August = vacation

For me, August means vacation. I have a job that limits when I can take vacation time. August is always a good time. So we have 2 weeks of vacations planned. Next week we will take our (previously planned for 4th of July) trip to Pennsylvania. We first will go to Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster. Then see Strasburg Railroad and take a buggy ride. Then we head north to Sesame Place for a day. Then off to visit friends in Allentown and go to Dorney Park. We end off the week with a trip to the Crayola Factory and the Herr Potato Chip factory before heading home. Will be a whirlwind of amusement parks. Poor big man will not be happy missing naps and will hopefully crash in the stroller.

At the end of the month we got to the beach -- the Outer Banks, specifically. This is a tradition -- I think it will be my 14th or 15th or so year. Maybe more. This year we will have 12 adults and 13 kids under age 8. in one house. It will be NUTS and very very fun. I can't wait. The spreadsheet for dinners, happy hours, cleaning and activities is getting filled. Yayyy!

Will try and post from the road next week, but not sure I know how. Beware of strange looking posts!

Don't forget the Pez Dispenser museum (very small) right behind the Crayola Factory!

Wow, It sounds like 2 fun trips. I have only taken one vacation this summer. I was a counselor at camp. It was fun, though. We built boats out of duct-tape. I have 3 slide shows on my blog. It is http://3jjjs.blogspot.com .
I sure enjoy reading your blog!

I've heard about the Crayola factory - it's supposed to be really fun. We did Dutch Wonderland a few years ago - Abby loved it. Have a great vacation!
