Yesterday, well that's pretty much what I heard Katelyn say repeatedly for the 40 min. tour of the Jelly Belly Candy Company. Nate has been working in Oakland for the last month and we decided to make use of the commute and have him join us on our excursion. Murphy's Law, "If you plan for it, it won't happen" well Nate had to stay late that day...Nonetheless our enthusiasm couldn't be squashed.
Giant inflatable Jelly Beans
+ Floating balloons
+ Candy everywhere
= Happy girls.
All in all it was 1 hr 20 min commute to Fairfield and 1 hr 10 min coming back (thank heavens for the carpool lane!).
Hmm...not sure yet why we were in the car so long Mom...(they slept anyway)
Entrance of JB Factory with Portraits of Ronald Reagan made from 14,000 jelly belly candies.
Katelyn taking it all in
Sarah's Enthusiasm for her Factory Hat...on the floor where it belongs
Jammin' out with the Chipmunks on the way home-Katelyn is wearing a seatbelt with her booster seat it's just out of the photo!
***Side note: Ronald Reagan started eating licorice flavored Jelly Bellies to help him kick his tobacco habits and required a bowl at every executive meeting.
