GM Manufacturing.....

On Friday, We all got up with Mike and went to work with him. On the way to his work, we met up with his friend so Mike could get through the security gate as I did not have permission. We got up at four in the morning! After sleeping an hour in the Target parking lot, we visited the GM Visitors center. I had never been in there in all the time we have lived here. It was neat.

Here are the kids with a 2009 Traverse that GM is making at the plant now. I think it looks sharp!
Getting ready to go in the Visitors center.
I wish I would have gotten her name. She was so nice to the kids! She made them each their own "badge" for the GM Plant. Each badge had their own name on it. They were so excited because they thought they had one like their dad. I had to have one to get through the security gate at GM to pick Mike up. So she called and got clearance for me to have one. After she printed up the badges she gave all the kids pencils and window clings and the little ones got magnetic boards with magnetic animals to go on them. How nice of her!

The kids with their "badges" like dads.
Ok, so the car seat nut that I am, drug three car seats through the visitors center for this display: I know it's hard for you to picture me doing such a thing.
My disclamer: The kids in the seats may not be the seat they *actually use. Also it's never ok to just "hold" up a seat belt if the bolt is missing!
disclamer over....
Finn was terrified of the crash dummy.
Ethan was a little nervous too.
Camden watched him very closely.
Ashley didn't mind sitting next to the crash dummy.
Christian didn't mind either.
Of course Connor wasn't scared either.
The kids really liked this rock. They called it Saurus rock. They thought it looked like one on the land before time. Notice how it dips down where Connor is standing. The kids are holding all their freebies.
Holding the magnetic board and animals :)
Next we went to Target.
Finn fell asleep.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures, The kids were on fall break so it was almost like taking a field trip.


  1. Those pictures with the crash dummy are so cute. Why did you have to use 3 car seats? Couldn't one do? Looks cold there.. It is cold here. 33* this morning. We are heading for Florida soon. Mom

  2. Okay let me get this right. You brought 6 kids and 3 carseats with you to the GM Visitors Center. Only you! :)

    Thank you for sharing.


  3. What a great day for your kids! I love the pictures with the dummy!
