The Chocolate Factory

On Thursday Mattey's class, well really all the first graders, went on a field trip to the South Bend Chocolate Factory.  Mattey was so excited to go on a field trip since Megan's gone on a few already this year.  She really wanted me to go with her but I didn't think Kade would be very good.  Mickey said he would go.  I guess there were LOTS of kids and they had to squeeze in the factory for the tour.  They also got a sample to bring home.  I think it was a good trip.  I don't have a lot of details since I didn't go but there are pictures.



Here's Mattey with her friend Hayley (who also happens to have the same birthday) and then with Mickey.  Nice hair nets.

Hair Nets! Mattey and Dad



Next is the all important chocolate, first being stirred and then coming off the line.



Mmmm...ChocolateComing off the line



Next Mattey is getting a taste of the chocolate and then she's just being cute.



Taste testingDon't I look cute?



Here's Mattey with a group of her friends.  From all the smiles I think they had a good time.



This was a good trip.



She's got another field trip on Monday.  I guess it's the end of the year or something.  Oh, we only have two more weeks!  What am I going to do?

They did have a lot of fun, I think just being that close to all that sugar made them happy. There were four classes and that was just way too many for the factory tour.

Thanks Becca but I really didn't want to go. I'm with that class every week Mickey can take his turn. Since it was really crowded I'm glad I didn't go. I would have freaked out.
