Summer has already started for us, which I realize is crazy town, especially with all of our snow days. But, here we are with the kids out of school and a lot of time on our hands. This past week was jam packed with activities, and I didn’t lose a kid! One adventure took us downtown to the World of Coke.
It’s a ton of work and physically and mentally exhausting, but getting out of the house and doing “stuff” usually results in a better day for all of us. Plus, it had been a while since we had last visited. but they asked us to come check it out again.
Did I mention I went solo with the girls? It was my first real outing with them. And, hey two out of four smiling faces is pretty good. (E was super unhappy in the stroller.)
The World of Coke has a fun new mobile app that allows you to take fun pictures and send postcards out to family and friends (or post to instagram with bragging rights to taking your four girls out by yourself!) The Coca-Cola bear is my favorite part of the World of Coke. He’s so personable and animated. We didn’t have a line at all, yet I didn’t get a picture of just the older two with him. Incidentally, this was the only time E didn’t want out of her stroller. Maybe she remembers our last visit when the bear jokingly tried to eat her?
The app allows you to access and unlock fun facts that are activated by bluetooth around the World of Coke. (Don’t worry about using your wireless data, either, they have a network you can sign into).
These girls, they kill me sometimes with the cute. They jumped right on the stools and asked me to take a picture.
When I realized I could see them in the angled mirror, I told them I wanted to get one more picture. Yep, the oldest is a hoot.
They had fun checking out their foot pressure and if they could bottle their own Coca-Cola. They could.
And had a great time jumping in my bubble me picture with B.
Their favorite part? The tasting room. Sodas from all around the world all over the place. We hardly ever do soda, so this is a huge treat and they were loving it. Once we got upstairs, we couldn’t even check out the new Pop Culture exhibit because they saw the tasting room and had to go there.
E was once again okay with being in her stroller because she got her own cup. It literally had like a drop of Fresca in it, but she was so happy to have her own big girl cup, she didn’t care! (If you are headed there and want to play a joke on somebody, tell them the Beverly is your favorite. Odds are, it’s not your favorite, but you will get a great reaction out of them!)
We didn’t get a chance to check it out, but they’ve just started showing a new feel-good film at the start of the tour called “Moments of Happiness.” I heard rave reviews from many friends that attended, so we will have to check it out next time.
What is the first thing to do on your summer to-do list?
It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.
**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**
I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love. Please spread the love! And, I never mind the comments, either:)
*We received tickets to check out World of Coke. The app is free. All thoughts are my own.
