Krispy Kreme and other adventures
Yes, I think it's ironic that I'm posting about a donut shop the same day I start a blog about nutrition, but nevertheless that's where we went on Thursday. We joined a big group of homeschoolers for a tour and sample, and it was pretty neat to see the inner workings of their production.
A couple interesting facts about Krispy Kreme:
1. Their donut machine (which we were under strict orders NOT to take pictures of) costs more than our house.
2. You need to be able to lift 50 pounds to work there
3. Employees get three free donuts a day. Yikes, I'm thinking about nutrition again....
The boys really enjoyed the tour. Tegan did not, but she did appreciate the donut at the end.
Krispy Kreme was one of three field trips we have scheduled for this month. Next week we're going on a tour of a crime lab, and the following week we're touring the Phoenix recycling center. Cool.
T-Ball and gymnastics are both in full swing now. Everett is still the easiest one to spot in both sports, as he's the one with the big grin on his face, waving to his parents every time he gets the chance.
