Mini Vacation Philly 2015

We decided to head back to Sesame Place this spring and introduce Sam to the fun. They both loved it!  I love making memories with these kids.  We are fortunate that our hotel points afford us the chance to go to so many cool places at a more reasonable cost.  We take advantage of Groupons, coupons, and more discounts as well.  We save pennies all year long for these mini vacations and this one definitely didn’t let us down.  I love how the kids race to the elevator to guess which car will win.  I love that Sam is tall enough to push “1” when we go down.  Abby takes care of the higher floors.  I love how they loves these trips.

They did great at the parks.  Not so great at dinner out with friends.  They loved the hotel pool, the water park rides, and visiting the Please Touch Museum.  They high-fived all the characters and were genuinely excited for all of them.  Sam especially loved Zoe and Bert and Ernie.  Abby was a big fan of the Count Splash Park and the water slides.  Sam has skinned knees upon skin knees because he had trouble walking in his Crocs.  Oops.  Ahh, the joys of being young.  Daddy and Mommy loved having a 2 bedroom hotel room and that the kids slept two for the four nights in their own room and ALL NIGHT LONG.  Ahh, the joys of being parents of the young.

The trip – even the 7+hour car ride home- was pretty awesome.  Making memories!  I’m always reminded of the American Express commercial – “One More Day”.  The commercial encourages you to use all your vacation days before you lose them.  We definitely don’t have that problem! Now, on to planning the next fun trip!

Yeah, no..they didn't have any fun at all, did they??
