The weather has been humid and dreary here. No school and a summer schedule that involves 2 hours of structured activity is great, if the sun is shining. However one these chilly days we need to find some sort of entertainment to keep everyone from killing each other..
I wasn't sure what to expect but certainly not what we found. lol
Two ladies working behind the wall was the only interesting aspect of the tour.
The place was packed and not at all handicapped accessible.
So funny story: We had been wandering around trying to see everything. I noticed this chocolate lotion off to the side, I thought oh, cool the kids will like this!!
I announced, GUYS CHECK THIS OUT, YOU CAN TRY IT! Immediately David jumped in, "me,me I want to try it." I was trying to keep tabs on everyone and absently mindedly said "It's whip cream" (meaning its a whipped lotion) and squirted it into David's hand. He immediately LICKED IT OFF HIS HAND!! I grabbed his hand from his mouth and hissed "DON"T EAT THAT, IT'S LOTION!" I was horrified... we were already drawing attention with our not so little entourage.
The other kids all jumped to his defense. Apparently if you say "Try it" in a chocolate factory it is very likely your child will eat lotion! We burst into giggles which drew more attention to us, much to the horror of my boys.
This was the ticket window, where one might purchase tickets for their train ride.
Since we were bummed out with our visit to the chocolate factory and this town is rich with history and fun touristy things to do, we continued our tour at the pretzel factory. Check back later for that blog post!
