When Sherryl learned she may have to undergo chemotherapy treatment again, she made a long list of things she wants to do before chemo begins again. Going to the Jelly Belly factory with the kids in our family was one of them.
Sherryl spent this afternoon with great-nephew Austin and great-niece Haley at the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield. They took a 40-minute guided tour through the factory, saw hundreds of bins full of millions of jelly beans, and visited the Jelly Belly art museum which showcases jelly bean mosaic portraits of famous people. Then they shopped for coconut jelly beans for Annie, licorice jelly beans for Richard, and "belly flops" (jelly bean rejects that are too big or too small to become official Jelly Belly beans) for themselves. The afternoon ended with ice cream and orange sodas in the Jelly Belly Cafe where even the pizzas and hamburgers are shaped like jelly beans. Everyone had a great time, and the weather could not have been more perfect. Good idea, RaRa!
