We started a habit several years ago of doing something fun when we have an appointment out of town. When you have people in your family that are sick and need to go to appointments and specialists a lot, visiting somewhere fun is a wonderful way to stay happy even when times are tough.
I am embarrassed to say that Mr. Ed’s is very close to the house I grew up in, I love elephants, and still the 1st time I went to visit was when I was already an adult! It costs nothing to go in and look, although it’s easy to spend a mint in their candy shop! It’s whimsical and fun and they host fun kid events throughout the year.
Then we spent way too much money on candy, especially being right after Halloween, but they have some amazing chocolate. We always pick up dark coconut clusters and I picked up almond bark too for good measure! The kids got some candy whistles and a few other candy toys. Ali got a chocolate ball that had a Peppa Pig toy in it.
Next we drove through Caledonia and Michaux State Forest and took pictures of the reservoir as we headed home.
Then we came home, played in the yard, and ate too much candy. It was a fun day filled with playing and being silly.
I highly recommend a stop to Mr. Ed’s Elephant Museum if you are ever in the south-central area of Pennsylvania. It’s a whimsical place and it always puts smiles on everyone’s faces.
Thanks for reading today! Do you have good memories of Mr. Ed’s? What fun places do you like to visit?
I wish fun adventures for everyone with so many smiles and I hope everyone is getting out while it’s still reasonably warm!
