Cold, Chocolaty Hershey

Sierra and I are notorious for traveling and taking advantage of our vacation time, regardless of the weather. Of course going places when it's warm and the amusement park is open.

Sun and Lava

Sometimes we have memories from places we visited as a child, and they're really wonderful memories. So wonderful, that when we go back to these places, they can leave us wondering what's different this time, why isn't the place as beautiful as how we remember?
