Spring Break

My Love took a couple of days off for spring break. We were supposed to visit G'ma and G'pa in South Dakota, but because of the bad weather and roads being closed we stayed here. We took three free tours. Here are the girls at the Hammonds Candy factory.
AC with her tour hat and sticker.

M being silly with the hair net she wore for her Celestial Seasonings tour. (I'd show you pictures of us all with the hairnets on, but I want to live for another day). The place makes both herbal and regular teas and when you go in the mint room it clears out your sinuses and makes your eyes sting. It was the best tour, because we could be down on the factory floor. It felt like walking right into a Mr. Rogers film. Do any of you remember those from Picture, Picture?
The last tour we took was of the Denver Mint, but pictures aren't allowed. I last went there over 18 years ago and it had a lot more production going on then. It was still neat to see again, though.(Sorry, I can't figure out how to make it so the words aren't on the right side of the picture.)


  1. I totally remember picture, picture from Mr. Roger's. My favorite was when he went to the crayon factory. :)

  2. That last comment was actually posted by me. I didn't realize that Ally was signed in. Sorry!
