Got Gas?

For weeks now my kiddos have been observing a new gas station being built near our house. They have been watching everything from the dirt being pushed around, gas pumps put in, until now-The opening day! The whole process really intrigued them. I cannot tell you how many times I got the question, "Is it time? Is it time?". Well, THE time had finally come & we took the girls to see the finished product!

Let me start this off by saying, this is no ordinary gas station. This QT is the Rolls Royce of them all, lol. It is huge! The girls' eyeballs nearly popped out of their heads as we entered the building. People were everywhere, the place was absolutely packed out!!! Aidann turned to me & said, "Wow, Mommy. These people must really like gas!". We let the ladies go up & down the aisles observing the soda dispensers, slushy makers, chip aisles, & everything. They were so amazed that this place started from nothing! They literally watched it be built from the ground up, what a wonderful experience for them. Eventually, we let them each pick out a "special" (aka sometimes food) to enjoy & then our lil' field trip was over.

I definitely recommend trying to find something new being built by you like a house, a bank or whatever & letting your children get to watch it grow daily-Enjoy & observe the process of how something starts out as just a plan on paper but soon becomes a reality! Vision.
