Can you believe that fall is right around the corner? It is hard for me to believe especially since we still have one last beach hoorah trip planned in a few weeks. Once that is over, I’ll be ready for fall to be here. Then, we will be heading to Hershey to check out their many awesome attractions. I’m excited to share that Halloween in Hershey starts October 19th and there is a ton of family friendly activities in store! Check it out.
