Field Trip Friday--H

I have to admit I have always had a soft spot in my Heart for HEB since we filmed a commercial for them and were on the front cover of their magazine. So when I thought about field trips for letter H, HEB was the first thing that came to mind. After a little bit of calling around, I found that taking a field trip to HEB is really quite easy (if any of you Texans want to do one, just go to to sign up).

The HEB tour was a Humongous success! We Had a Huge group of friends join us for the Happy occasion. The gal from HEB took everyone around the store, stopping in each section to talk about Healthy eating Habits and letting the kids sample Healthy Hors d'oeuvres from the basic food groups.

The Handsome group of kids before Heading to the tour (I think it is kind of interesting that with the exception of a couple kids in the picture, everyone in this group is within 6 months age of my kiddos---there is such a range of Heights)

First stop--Produce! The kids learn "5-a day--the color way"

Follow the Leader

The Highlight of the tour was the meat department, where the kids got to Handle a live lobster!

Kaydence Hung back a bit, but Kyndall and Kassidy were in a Hurry to get their Hands on it!

Next Stop: Dairy where everyone got a "squish" yogurt (as my kids call them)

The Handout of bread samples from the bakery was also a Heavy favorite

The Hilarious Huddle of moms following the kiddos around. Our group got a lot of attention from other shoppers, However, my kids blended right in and the attention wasn't focused on me or my kids, which was a nice change!

The kids were sad to see the field trip come to a Halt, but were Happy about the bags of goodies they received at the end!

Thanks HEB, we had a Humongously fantastic time!

PS--Let me just state for the record that finding good descriptive words that start with H was much Harder than I anticipated---though I am sure it won't hold a candle to letter X!

Hello- H is a tougher letter than some- and too bad Kaiya's friend Henry could not go that day!

I really enjoy reading about your field trips. Such good ideas! You could give Sesame Street a run for its money. :-) Thank you for sharing.

Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks.sbobet
