Take Your Daughter to Work Day

This is where Bryan works in Dallas. It's close enough to the American Airlines Center that when we went to the Stars hockey game Bryan walked from his office to meet us. The building is called The Crescent and Bryan's office is on the very top floor on the right... way up there... He works as an accountant for a very nice family. Most people think he does their taxes or something but they have their own tax department. Bryan works more with their personal finances and most days he comes home from work pretty happy.

Today was National Take Your Daughter to Work Day (always the last Thursday in April - I learned something new today!) and Cara jumped at the chance to spend some time with her daddy. She was up and ready super early but nixed the dress we had picked out last night, opting instead, for her shirt that says "My Dad Rocks". How could I argue with that one??

Of course Jordyn and I wanted in on the action and met them in Dallas for lunch at yummy Potbelly Sandwiches. Secretly, it was also Plan B in case Cara was bored at the office and wanted to come home with us...

Much to my surprise and delight, she informed me that she was now the official paper shredder for the office and couldn't come home with us because she had an appointment with Adam, one of Bryan's co-workers. "Yes, I told him I wouldn't be available until after lunch, Mom." Okay.

She's always said she wants to be a teacher, or a scientist, or a mom. Maybe now she might start saying she wants to be an accountant...


Looking out of Bryan's office window... I thought I might be able to get a photo of the hawk that comes to visit him but he never showed up...

Hey Hil! Thank you for the great comment you left on my blog. It's always nice to "meet" new people.
Believe it or not I've actually been reading your blog on the sly as well.

I was wondering how you know Shar and Sam?

Thanks for blog stalking!

Tobi~ Samantha, Sharlene & I went to high school together in Germany and then BYU for college. Army brats for life!

Shar and Sharlene are two different people. ☺

Just kidding.

You know - that has actually confused people before?

I want to be a nice family who needs their own finance department.

We love Potbelly Sandwiches! I didnt' know it was Take Your Daught to Work Day, so when Hannah asked why she didn't get to go with Travis, I told her he was in meetings all day - which was a half truth. I didn't want to say, because I'm a lame mom who didn't know.

Tobi,

Actually Shar, Hilary and I met in the preexistence and agreed to find a way to hook up again in this life. Army bratdom just happened to work out for all three of us. Being LDS didn't hurt either.

I'm so glad the plan to hook-up in life worked out. You girls sound like a fun bunch of friends. Go Army Brats!
