When my 14-year-old sister, Brianna, came home from school with a form for Take Your Kid to Work Day she didn’t know who to go to work with. She could go with my mom, but book keeping seems boring, and she couldn’t go with my dad or step-dad because their jobs aren’t kid-friendly. So she was left with me. I discussed it with the team and everyone was on board, but what were we going to do with her? The day before she was supposed to come to my co-op placement came along and we still didn’t know what we were going to have her do. The brainstorming began. What was something we had to do anyway, but was still fun? We finally settled on going to tour Aquatopia and we just had to get an appointment. Luckily even with only a day’s notice we got an appointment to check out this new and totally cool venue.
Angie picked us up and we headed out to meet Melanie there. When we got there, there was so much to look at and take in. It was beautiful! There were tropical plants everywhere and there was a relaxing sound of moving water. When we were finished the tour we left to show Brianna some of the things we are working on, such as Married in the Moment and how we brainstorm ideas for marketing. Brianna happily tagged along and absorbed as much information as she could before the day came to an end.
Brianna said she had lots of fun and the highlights from her day were when the fish in the pond nibbled on her fingers and when she got to help out with our marketing plan. I think her Take Your Kid to Work Day experience was probably more fun than most of her classmates’.
