Our Latest Outings

Jelly Belly Factory! Tyler had the day off yesterday so we decided to make the best of it and headed off for the Jelly Belly Factory. We took a tour of the factory...Did you know it takes 21 days for 1 jelly bean to be made? Good thing they make them in bulk. We found out that tidbit of info on our tour. After the tour we had lunch in the cafe and played around on all the little toys. We then walked over to the sample counter to sample any flavor we wanted, even the yucky ones. Tyler and I picked yucky ones for each other to taste. Tyler picked the vomit flavored one for me, which tasted exactly like puke, and the after taste was puke in your mouth! EEEEWWWW! Luckily the lady at the counter understood and had yummy ones available. I had Tyler taste the rotten egg, and he was even weird enough to try the skunk flavored one on his own. That one made his breath smell like skunk! How disgusting is that? But we had fun and the kids had fun. Damon loved riding the mechanical car, Andee wasn't so excited about that one. The easter bunny is going to be there soon, maybe we will go visit the easter bunny!






We (the kids and I) are getting a little stir crazy these days. Tyler isn't home enough to have the bug, but he's kind enough to cater to our need to get out. So last weekend, we went on a picnic up to Joaquin Miller Park up by the temple. It was so nice to be able to go on a hike, play in the stream and just let the kids run wild. We roasted hot dogs and got really dirty. How sad is it that a picnic seems like the best idea in the world sometimes.






Here is my little girl...oh wait, it's Damon. Putting the towel on his head is the only way we can get him to dry his hair. He seems to have a claustrophobic fear with things in his face right now. He hates putting on and taking off shirts...it's quite the ordeal these days.
