Back stage passes

This afternoon we had the unique opportunity of touring a Chick Fil-A restaurant as a family.

Our 4:00 tour was lots of fun, and even though we weren't allowed to take pictures behind the scenes, I'm sure we won't forget all the cool things we saw!  I enjoyed learning about the fresh produce, name-brand ingredients, and same-day preparation that goes into all the yummy food that Chick Fil-A serves.  Each of us got to take home a fresh lemon (one of three ingredients in the signature lemonade) and make our own Ice Dream cone.

After the tour, since it was only 4:30, the kids played on the indoor playground for about 45 minutes before we ordered dinner.  We ate at a rather leisurely pace, let the kids play again, and then moseyed on home.  Perhaps the best part of the afternoon was having Garry there with us at such an early hour!  On Friday he worked until 1:00 a.m., on Saturday he worked from 1:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., and on Sunday he worked another eight hours, ending at 2:30 a.m.  He was back in the office at 8:30 this morning, so being able to leave the building at 4:00 seemed like a special treat.  Taking a family field trip made the day even better.
