Oh, what a summer vacation this was! Just look at my youngest son, a little less than 3 years old, asleep on my husband’s shoulder. My oldest son, who was 7, is sitting next to my husband. He looks so little. This was before he got glasses. My daughter is next to me. She was 4-1/2 then and she certainly made this vacation memorable!
We didn’t know it before we got there, but she was apparently getting a stomach virus. We arrived and checked into the Hershey Lodge and headed out to tour around. She said she felt nauseous. The smell of the chocolate in some areas of town made it worse. The next morning, she was still wasn’t feeling great, but back then she did have a sensitive stomach so we didn’t think much of it. Then we went to breakfast at one of the dining rooms of the Lodge. We ate some and she said she didn’t feel good…and proceeded to throw-up onto the table! It wasn’t a lot, but when you’re sitting in a public dining room, it doesn’t need to be much to be gross! We got out of there and she felt okay again. Then she developed a low fever. So, we did what we had to do, being that we had traveled to an amusment park for a fun filled vacation with our three kids. We gave her some Children’s Motrin, popped her into the double stroller we had at the time, and headed to Hershey Park! She felt okay for the rest of the day and we all actually had fun. The next morning she felt sick again, so we skipped the dining room and we packed everything up and came home. It was a very quick vacation. Until fairly recently, the smell of chocolate still made her feel nauseous.
