Holy Chocolate



According to my man Nate Dog - on the 8th day, god created chocwit. Stephanie and I were struggling with what to get the boys for Christmas this year. Do they really need another toy? Rhetorical. Gift cards are nice - but bland. We needed something with a wow factor. My sis suggested a hockey game and I tried to pretend like it was my idea. I do not think any of us quite imagined what a great trip it would be for all of us - pretty sure no one left disappointed. Stephanie suggested early on that we book a room at the Hershey Lodge - again a winner - again I pretended like it was my idea. Damn these girls are smart.

So - we pick up Andrew and Nathan Saturday afternoon and head West for some serious adventure - and chocwit. Holy chocwit. We checked in to find...it is Chocolate Covered February - I think Stephanie may have been as excited as the boys as she makes no secret of her love for chocolate. Maybe it is me - it usually is - but it seems strange to me that Chocolate Covered February is also Black History Month. My mind flows in tangents - but I digress. Four chocwit (Nathan's pronunciation) bars at check in - gave one to each and they disappeared with a quickness. Hershey Kisses and Cholcolate bars wander around the lobby - the boys probably start wondering if this is what heaven will be like.

I did promise an attempt at concise no?

Hockey game rocked - boys wanted to play hockey in the hall when we got back - we said no that would be inconsiderate only to walk through corridor to our room to find two boys playing hockey in the hallway - we still said no - they proceeded to play hockey in the room for over an hour while Stephanie and I enjoyed a night cap (or two) - Sunday up at a reasonable hour - Andrew plays some video games while Nate Dogs goes to work on a large bag of Reese's Pieces - he lets Andrew, Steph and I have approximately two apiece and goes back at it - we check out and grab a bite to eat before heading to Chocolate World - the boys start floating above the ground - everywhere we go someone is handing us some version of chocolate - we do it all - Nate Dog wants to live in the chocolate tank - Andrew loves Sourz - 3D show rocked and spilled us out into the chocwit store with a pocket full of kisses - that is only the beginning - 50 bucks worth of chocwit should hopefully get us back to Breinigsville - Andrew chose the dark chocolate loaf and Nate Dog the milk chocwit - pics tell the rest of the story.

Stephanie has a new protective chocolate coating on the rear seats of her car.

Nate Dog dreamed of chocolate and Andrew loves to look at himself in the mirror with his new hockey puck hat and hillbilly teef.

Nobody puked - nobody cried - everybody laughed a bunch.

Cannot wait til next year!
