Google's Take Your Child to Work Day

I was going to write this last night so it could post early for everyone, but we had our first puppy meeting last night and blogging got lost in the celebration of our first puppy finding her new home. :D

So, a morning put-together it is.

Last week Thursday was Take Your Child to Work Day. Kristoffer works at Google, and the whole family was invited to the activities. It was so much fun and I have a bunch of pictures to show you, too (they're all in small form in the hope I don't overload your browser). :D

The first surprise came a few days before when the boys got their t-shirts. It's an Eric Carle Google Doodle!

   

We kept them a secret from the boys until the day of. When we got there, we hung out at Daddy's work space for a bit, then we were able go to get the boys' work badges for the day and start the fun.

Which was lunch. Mmm, Google lunch, making all Google spouses jealous every day.

  

Then off to the activities room for face painting, balloon animals or swords, crafts including a bowl painted for Action Against Hunger, and a by-request YouTube video wall, for which Joshua chose the Mama Mia song clip from that same-name movie. They even got to plant seeds for Earth Week.

There was also a scavenger hunt at the end, but we didn't end up participating because we needed a badge wielder and Daddy had to finish some work.

In the end, we still came away with some amazing crafts Joshua (mostly) made himself.


And believe it or not, that wasn't all. The boys also got goodie bags. And when we came home, they had even more to play with.


All in all, it was a fantastic day. The boys had a lot of fun and I enjoyed every minute of it. We feel so lucky to be part of the Google family and to be able to take part in events like this.

Thank you, Google!!
