August 4, 2010: Heading Home to Kids Castle (PA)

One of my favorite things to do (duh!) is go home to Pennsylvania. We have been so fortunate to have free tickets because of our "bump" a couple of years ago that enabled us to take another trip back.

Of course, one of the first things my kids want to do is go to Kids Castle, an enormous structure in a park built by people in the community. But one of the things you'll notice right away is the red, sweaty faces of the kids. Yes, it is Pennsylvania in the summer--August no less--and they were smack dab in the midst of heat and humidity. When you come from Utah, you can handle the heat; it's the humidity that does you in.

We grabbed the two youngest kids of my brother, Rhiannon and Connor, to play with Ellie and Griffin. But after only 30 minutes, they were so hot and sweaty (and tired from the trip) that we decided it was more than time to head to Friendly's, my favorite ice cream/restaurant in the world. Chris came to help transport kids and we enjoyed our favorite treats while planning our weeks' worth of movie-viewing.
