California Pizza Kitchen field trip

On St. Patricks day I took Malea and Alex on a field trip to the California Pizza Kitchen. They do really fun tours for small groups of kids before the restaraunt opens. When we first arrived they brought us all in and sat everyone at a large table and gave all of the kids small coloring books and crayons. Then they took everyone's drink orders while the kids colored. We then proceeded to wash all of the kids hands and when we returned there were personal sized pizza doughs at each childs seat. The kids then got to put the sauce and the toppings of their choice on top of their personal pizza. While the pizza was cooking we got a tour of the restaurant including the kitchen, fridge, and pantry. We got to see the workers and chefs prepping for the day. They showed us their neat machine that cuts bread in to perfect slices and then we each ate a piece of their yummy bread. The kids got to see the huge brick oven where their pizzas were cooking. Soon after the tour was over, the pizzas were ready to eat. Each child loved eating the pizza that they had created. It was such a fun field trip and the staff at California Pizza Kitchen were so friendly. The kids were also very wonderfully behaved the whole time.

The thank you card we made with all of the kids names on it. The worker said it was the best thank you she's ever gotten for doing one of the tours.

Malea had so much fun

Been a long time

So I know it's been a long time since my last post, but I think that I better start getting back to blogging. I think it will be too much work to go over all that has happened in the last many many months, so I am just going to start again from right now.
