Milliken Family Day 2013

Milliken Family day(s) was such a success last year and we are thankful the good people in charge at Milliken decided to bring it back this year, too! You can read about our adventures in 2012 at this post.

 We started the fun day off with Jayce being terrified of bees. This is not a new fear but it seems to be exponentially worse this year than ones past. We have him in counseling to help deal with his extreme anxiety and things will hopefully look up soon for him. If not, it will be a loooonnnng summer.

The weather was gorgeous but Jayce refused to take his jacket off when we were outside. Less skin showing means less skin for bees to sting.

Jocelyn couldn't have cared less about bees. She was just mad that we made her ride in the stroller while we were outside.

Jayce finally stopped being worried about bees long enough to participate in the Water Balloon throwing contest.

They didn't win, but just to see Jayce happy again was enough for me!

While Jaina waited in a long line for face painting, I took Jayce over to the Fire Department Smoke House.

Then it was time to go inside the building (Jayce was thrilled!) and check out all the products Milliken makes.

Jocelyn was not impressed. Her only thought was, "Let's blow this Popsicle stand".

(Ha ha ha... check out her outfit in this post and then go look at her outfit in last year's post. Totally not intentional!)

So this is what I did with Jocelyn for 30 minutes.

Climb stairs, look out window, go down ramp. Repeat. Again.

On our way to Brian's office, we stopped at the Coffee bar where Brian gets a coffee every day.

Brian's desk. It looks exactly the same as last year. Except that Brian's co-worker with the candy addiction moved cubicles.

Brian handled the kids being all up in his stuff for about 10 minutes. That was enough.

On our way out, we stopped at the science engineering station.

We can't wait until next year!!!


  1. Fun!

    I'm not a fan of bees either.

  2. I think it's so cool that his work does this. Love baby J's outfit!
