A Tour of Papa's Work

Papa works for one of the major grocery store chains in Southern California, and today, we got to take a tour of the brand new corporate offices that opened last month. When we arrived for our tour, the kids were given plastic grocery bags and were told there was lots of candy waiting for them inside. And boy, they weren't kidding, every time we entered a new department where there was someone there to tell us about the area, they had candy, and not just the boring stuff, we're talking the good stuff... miniature Snickers, Milky Way, 3 Musketeers, and more! It only took one stop for candy and it brought back the memories of Rachel trunk or treating last year. She had it down, and even said 'thank you'. She'll be a hoot to watch come Wednesday at truck or treating.

Rachel especially loved seeing the Yellow Peanut M&M. M&M's are her favorite candy. She knew the routine, stand next to the character and pose for a picture. Here, she is checking out Captain Crunch instead of looking at the camera. After the tour inside the corporate offices, we boarded trams that took us out to the grocery distribution warehouses. They still aren't open, and will open in the new year. It's a good thing they had trams for us, there is no way we could have done all the walking! The place was HUGE!!!I took over a hundred pictures of our tour. To see more of our tour and where Rachel's Papa works, you can see my album of pictures here. After our tour, the entire family went out to dinner to celebrate Mommy's and Gramma's birthdays. Following dinner, everyone came back to our house where the girls had so much fun playing together for a couple of hours. A perfect way to end the day!
