Chip Trip

The MOMS Club was scheduled to tour a not-so-local pretzel factory this morning, but it was pretty much a bust. They started the tour at 10-sharp, although eight of us (3 adults, 5 kids) weren't there yet, they lumped us with another group that was mostly adults, some of them kept "shushing" our kids, even when they had questions, the tour was led by Miss Monotone 2012, and what was billed as a "one hour tour" took about twenty minutes.

They weren't very concerned about our concerns either.

Needless to say, we won't be going back there.

So, upon the advice of a couple of moms in our group, we went over to a nearby potato chip factory that does a self-guided tour, and had a great time there. The kids could see all the steps of the chip making, and learned way more about that just from looking than we learned about the pretzels with a tour guide.

(There were recorded explanations of everything, but there wasn't much hope of hearing them over our kiddos.)

Then Peeper and I went to lunch at Friendly's with T and her girls (we'd carpooled).

I'd say we did a pretty good job of salvaging the trip. Despite the crappy tour number one, we had a good time and actually learned something.

But, there are no photos of it all, because we weren't allowed to take any.
