Candy Lane

First off.... Look where Ryder and I are....

We had a last minute change of plans and ended up flying into The Cape on Saturday afternoon instead of driving. Ryder is so excited to be at Mack and Grammy's house and has seriously played with his Auntie Ally and Auntie Hailey all day, but I still have some PA blogging to do. I just couldn't resist posting that photo :)

Derrik is still in Pennsylvania and flies back out to Arizona for a couple weeks of rehab before the Christmas break tomorrow. On mine and Ryder's last night in Pennsylvania we went to Candy Lane at Hershey Park with his mom's side of the family. It has become a tradition for us to go the day after Thanksgiving I guess since it's our third year in a row. I've looked forward to it every year, but knew this year would be the best. Hershey Park is a huge amusement park, but for the holidays they open all the kid rides, put up a ton of lights, and play Christmas music. It is always beyond freezing, but it doesn't matter because we love it anyhow. This year Ryder was finally really old enough to enjoy it and all three boys were in great moods the whole night. Thanks for a great night guys... we truly enjoyed it!

All bundled up to head into the park

(P.S. - How cool is Uncle Cole and Uncle Dalton's blanket?!)

Ryder, Daddy, and Me-Maw

I miss him so much already. What an amazing husband to let me visit family so often :)

Ryder and Poppy

Ryder and Poppy on the "choo-choo"

Ryder was pretty thrilled to get on this ride! He kept asking to go on "choo-choo soul" for anyone who watches the Disney channel

"The Guys" as Ryder calls them

Sorry for photo over load of these boys, but they rarely cooperate for pictures so I had to take advantage of the situation!!!

Warming Up! He was freezing!!!!!!

Ryder and Daddy going on the frog hopper

This was probably the most daring ride we've put him on, and he loved it!

Ryder BEGGED Me-Maw to go on, and she was a trooper and went

No Hands!!! Cole kept belly laughing that he couldn't do it yet he had them up the whole time.

If you look close enough you can see Ryder has one hand in the air too!

Ryder and Uncle Cole on the "big trucks"

So glad I was pregnant and didn't have to go on this ride!!!

You'd never think we attended anything because we're always the ones with the cameras!

A HUGEEEEE thank you to all of our family in Pennsylvania for making this trip happen. It truly wouldn't have happened this year with out everyones help. We enjoyed every second we got to spend with each and every one of you! We are truly hoping was can be east-coasters again next off season so we can make lots of trips and a whole other year doesn't pass before we get back!!!
