Before we head to the tropics, my kids and I savor the Spring Season first by going to the Hershey’s Garden to see the blossoming trees and flowers. We don’t want to missed our favorite season of the year, and Hershey Gardens is just the perfect place to enjoy it, not only its close to home but there’s a lot of stuff to do there beside the garden.
It’s a countless time that we’ve been in this garden. Every year we come here to witness the blossoming of trees and tulips, and every time it’s always breath taking. It make me wish to have a garden like this where we can enjoy and relax. Below are some of the photos I took of some of their blossoming trees.
I just want to share to all of you of what other things we did when my kids and I visited Hersheys Gardens to meet fellow blogger mommy Mel Cole of Memory Lane.
My kids and I arrived at the garden a wee bit early than mommy Mel, while waiting for them, we stroll along the Butterfly garden, afterward we did the Scavenger Hunt. I think this activity happens every year for the kids. To join the Scavenger hunt, you need to register first at the shed that is right outside the entrance of the Garden, this shed is hard to missed because it has a lot of colorful gardening tools for kids. The fee to join is $9 bucks. The lady will give you a pen and a booklet in a plastic cover with a neck strap-to make it easy for the kids to carry it anywhere. In the booklet, you will find all the informations of the game, and when your done, you will get a Gardening Tool of your choice. It sounds fair enough. And I thought this would be fun for my Eldest, at the same time he will learn about plants and animals that is in the garden. I only registered Jian, since the little one is too young for it, he might not understand what is going on. So off we went to do the Scavenger Hunt. Below are some of my kids photos while looking for the answers of the questions that is in the booklet.
They really had fan scavenging! As you can see the little one follows his big brother anywhere. In the booklet paper, it shows a map on where to go, and where to find the answers of the questions. Its really cool and very educational for the kids. This game exercise their mind and body, which is really good. Some of the questions are a bit tricky since its a riddle like, so you have to look closely, and read the questions carefully. For my Kuya, he found the answers and the items without my help.
Below is the price he chose. A rake. Perfect for this Fall Season.
When my kids and I visited the Hershey Garden last month to meet a fellow blogger, we saw lots of watering cans all over the place that was painted so uniquely and so beautifully. I’ve never seen so many watering cans before and they are all so pretty! It was so artistic, the way they painted them, and how they put them together. I bet the kids had so much fun painting their watering cans. When you enter Hershey’s Garden, you will be greeted with this sign above(full picture below).Isnt it so pretty? There was a Giant watering can, too bad I was not able to photograph it, hence I was busy talking to mommy Mel, my co-blogger, catching up with the latest of here and there, since we dont have much time and it was getting dark.
Anyhow, here are some of the photos I took of the Art Exhibit by Milton Hershey School Students. It was taken by my Canon T3 using 50mm 1.4f lens.
And I would like to share this to Tuesday Travels and 241/366 BPC
Last month, my kids and I visited the Hershey’s Gardens once again. We went there to meet a fellow blogger who I met online, she and her family were in town that day, so we decided to meet in the Garden, which is a perfect place to meet because its not as crowded as the Park and not as noisy as the Factory. And of course, my kids and I want to see the Rose Garden and the Butterfly Garden as well, I thought it would be the perfect time to see this two gardens.
We got there a little bit early, so we got the chanced to walk around the garden and did some photo shoot with the kids. The Rose Garden was so beautiful and enchanting! I felt like Alice in Wonderland when I step into this garden. The roses are so beautiful and they are all in full bloom! Oh how I wish I have a garden like this! The view is just so breath taking. The fragrance of the roses envelops the place, it was like your in a magical kingdom. I felt lucky that we live 40mins away from Hershey, so coming here ever year is not difficult.
Here are some photos to share from this Garden. This is only one part of Hershey’s Gardens, you can check out this link for the Butterfly Gardens, or you can check out this Link for more post of our Travels in Hershey’s PA.

I took my kids to Hersheys Gardens last month to see their butterfly garden. It was our first time to see it even though we’ve been to this garden many times already. Its because we usually visit this place in the Spring season to see the tulips, and the butterfly garden is usually close for the season, it only opens during Summer season. So last month, I decided to visit this garden again and this time for the the butterfly garden and the rose garden. My kids were so amazed at all the butterflies. We’ve never seen so many butterflies before. Their are so many kinds of butterflies flying above our heads and landing on our clothes and nose. I have to watch my little guy closely and told him over and over again to be gentle with the butterflies and never touch them cause they are very delicate. I was so glad that we visited the place, it was amazing I tell you. Below are some of my shots of the butterflies. Aren’t they all so pretty?
