3 Little Visitors: Day 2

Tuesday morning we got around and packed a picnic lunch to enjoy after our trip to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing located just down the road from the house.

We took a 45 minute tour of the ins and outs of how money is printed. It was pretty cool. The kids got a little antsy and Hannah wasn't exactly the best listener. I think we needed more of a "drive through" tour. But the kids enjoyed visiting the gift shop after the tour. Imagine that! Sarah's kids wanting to visit the gift shop! NO pics from the bureau of engraving (they HATE to be called the MINT!) since security was pretty tight. They are in the process of printing a new 10 dollar bill and it is ALL very top secret.

After the tour we decided that it was a little too hot (almost 100 degrees!) to have an outside picnic so off to my school we went. Unfortunately, the fire marshall was there testing the system. Off to Ricky's school!

We had the whole cafeteria to ourselves! After a yummy lunch the kids had a good time running around the stage. Hannah and Noah crawled all over the place chasing each other. Myra and Kenzie enjoyed hamming it up. Myra has always enjoyed performing. Just ask PaPa about the time she sang "Twinkle, Twinkle" at the Stroud High School Auditorium.

Sky's question was "Anna, what are we going to do next?". Just wait and see Skybird!
