The hotel didn't have ringing alarms this morning at 4am which was great. We packed, checked out, breakfast and got to Chocolate Factory at 9:30. Luckily we made it to the 9:45 Trolley Tour, which was a blast. A gentlemen/woman/child/old man/farmer/businessman was our guide. Ask, and I'll explain. We learned alot about a great man, Mr. Hershey. We made it back just in time for the chocolate tour to see how chocolate was made. It was a pure Disney ride with the floating boats and everything. I really wanted to sing "It's a Smallworld", but at least I was appeased with the "Daisy, Daisy" duet on the Trolley. Again, ask me about this. Then on to the movie in 4D that scared me still with swishing things under the seats. It was a cute cartoon to keep the kids interested. We made it to our final stop in chocolate making, where each of us designed our own bars (mine was white chocolate with toffee, butterscotch, and almonds wrapped in milk chocolate. Don't know. Don't want to eat it, but the cover was cool. Posted my wrapper earlier on Facebook courtesy of the Hershey electronics. The store was out of this world. Don't worry, Ella, we got plenty of chocolate for you. We stopped at the pizza diner I wanted to eat at last night on the itinerary (extreme vacationer in me), and then we headed to Winchester.
The boys fell asleep, Chris with a snake (another earlier post), and I barely made it wide-eyed to visit Aunt Di and Uncle Harold on their beautiful estate. We were treated to a beautiful pool house and a steak dinner with one of their friends, whom my children adored. Late night one-ups discussions on guns and RVs, and we hit the hay.
