We woke up earlier this morning after a good nights sleep. This Hampton Inn is very nice and quiet to sleep, just the a/c for some white noise. We had another wonderful breakfast and we headed out and South again for Hershey PA. We plan to visit the huge RV show for a couple days. Also catching up with some RV friends. Bonnie was ready to drive this morning and took the wheel. We had a good trip and a couple short stops. One stop was here:
We continued on and made it to the Giant Center at Hershey Park. It looked like rain but it sure was hot and humid again. We visited Camping World and started collecting pins for a chance to spin for a prize. We have to finish that tomorrow. We did see several sales people we know from Buffalo and said hello.

Then we headed off to see our friends from Colton who are representing Tiffin here at Hershey. Tiffin has some beautiful coaches and we got to meet Bob Tiffin the owner and chat with him.

We waited out the rain in the dry and I did not see any leaks.

As we were checking in to the hotel and asking about where to eat a couple invited us to share their pizza with them. They had eaten all they wanted and did not want to throw it away. Plus the Hampton Inn was serving Chicken Pot Pie in a crock pot. Both the pizza and the pot pie were very good. Plus we got to know 2 new people from Maine and chatted with them for about an hour. I offered to pay for half the pizza put they would have none of that. So we are in the room for the night and its a good thing more rain is moving in. Well I am going to relax and rest for another day at the show tomorrow.
F is for Friday and Fun. We had a great Fun Friday wow what a day. We got up and got going with another good breakfast here at the Hampton Inn. We got to the RV show a little after 9 and looked at a couple quick things and then sat down at a cookware demo. I like to listen to the spiel from the sales people and sometimes they have really good products. Well Bonnie really liked the demo so we now own some new cookware.
|A most impressive demonstration|
|Only picture off my Wall Drug shirt that I have|
We wanted to look at Winnebago and Newmar Motorhomes which we did. Friends of ours are interested in the Newmar toy hauler.
|Class A Toy Hauler|
|Lots and lots of people at the show|
Next stop was Chocolate World. We did not have much time.

|Surprising how many brands Hershey's makes.|
The alarm went off at 6:30 this morning. This is really early for us. I actually was awake as my hips were bothering me and Bonnie had just been up to the bathroom. So I got up and hit the bathroom first and then I went down to breakfast while Bonnie showered. I came up then and got showered and packed up ready to leave. We left right at 8:00 and headed for Strasburg, PA. The Pennsylvania Rail Road Museum is here but we were planning to spend A Day With Thomas Train. We were spending the Day with my Sister and BIL and niece, nephew and their families. We all got there about the same time and soon were on board for the first trip of the day. There were plenty of activities for the kids and we all had a good time. I will let the pictures tell the story.
|Here comes Thomas|

We had a full morning and it was lunch time. Joe and Andrea had taken Ellie home. The rest of us headed up the tracks for a picnic lunch near the tracks. We were able to see Thomas and Engine 90 go by a couple times. Plus the lunch was really great.
|Here come Thomas|
Well thats about it for today, now we can get some visiting done.
We were up early again today and headed to church with my sister. Sunday has been food day. We had snacks at church and then went out to eat after church. Then tried to nap this afternoon but did not have much luck. I did catch up on my email and blogs.
|Molly is hoping for some of Bonnie's breakfast|

|Bonnie started with salad|
