When I grow up, I want to work at the candy factory.

I think next year I might enroll myself in preschool. It's awesome! This week "Hands On Preschool" went to Mrs. Call's Candy Factory in Heber City. I was lucky enough to tag along as a volunteer. This place was awesome! It has 100 year old machines doing lots of the work as candy makers maneuver the goods through a series of cooking, conveyor belts, and wrapping. My mouth was watering the entire time. I don't know who was more glued to Mrs. Call- the kids, or the volunteers!
Volunteers: Amylee, Melissa Duke, Darcy Haas
Pictured above are black licorice caramels after they have been cut into strips. The gear looking machine in the bottom right of the picture is what cuts them into the bite size pieces that you purchase. It worked like a machine gun- this is definitely the job Dallas would have if we worked in a candy factory.
Above: The kids are watching the candy "wrapper" wrap the candies and then drop onto the conveyor belt which loads them into big boxes.

Will, Sidney, and Grace. (Side note: Will tells me he is marrying Sidney because he loves her.)
