I love Knoebels Grove! My dad's cousins live in Williamsport and I would sometimes stay with them in the summer for a week or two growing up and we always went there. Nobody else I know has ever heard of it. Very cool

Every weekend is good as long as I don't have to go into work.

Great weekend here too! Was Dads Birthday on Saturday so had great fun making a Space Invaders cake for him! I have a slight addiction to cake decorating, so was the perfect excuse to get baking!
Unfortunately it was back to work this morning, but I shared some cake and this seemed to cheer everyone's Monday up a bit!

You are correct there. I own my own business, so it is hard for me to have days off.

Awesome.

My weekend was nice but this morning was awful. Did anyone else get blasted by this wonderful winter ice storm? Every school in the surrounding area was closed, except for mine. I slid the whole way there. It's warmed up a bit and everything turned to rain so it is not treacherous driving anymore, but it is just really cold and ick out. I need summer!

Then again.... you know if it's a hit, It'll be back for the F&W, so I guess I'll just have to wait. (I'm guessing....The Hawaii booth if it returns.)

I wonder if the rum would help. Hmm...
Rum always helps.

I just found out there are other places in the US that have Dole Whip, I'm from Jersey and there's a place in PA that sells it, I might have to make a trip soon. Apparently there is a lot of places near Syracuse that sell it.
Knoebels, and Dutch Wonderland.

May you die a horrible painful death! That's just cruel to those of us who've been dealing with temps and windchills that are low enough to still qualify for children's rates at the parks....
