We then went to the Hershey Gardens...we also scoped out the posh Hotel Hershey. The gardens were huge and full of roses (my mom is the big gardener in the family...here photoed sharing her knowledge with 2 daughters sworn never to try to grow roses LOL). After the Gardens and lunch we went to the outlets, Hershey has just a tiny outlet mall but we stopped by the important stores (scrapbook, Pfaltzgraff, and the one cross stitch store in the area...the Cross stitch Corner). We were tired after all that so we headed to Friendly's for Ice cream then back to the hotel to stitch. We got deli dinner late at night and stitched too long into the night.
Sunday we took our time leaving, and stopped by the cross stitch store again to get a few more things (never enough) I left around noon and was home by 630.
