bring your parents to work day


guess who's in town?
 these cute parents of mine. nothing is better than when they visit!
notice my mom wearing chase's noogler hat, my dad wearing a giants hat, AND they have their 
welcome gift of a famous san francisco its-it ice cream cookie sandwich...already off to the best start! 

we've done a lot this weekend, but we'll start with the day they arrived.
it felt like bring-your-parents-to-work day, because they visited both of us at our jobs:
me in my teach for america classroom, and chase at google. 
it made our work days waaaay better to have them visiting!
my dad was the guest speaker in my classroom, they LOVED him just like all kids do. 
he is the best speaker i know, so they were being so quiet and listening perfectly...
i wish he would come teach my class more often! 
mom and dad + a few of my students! it made me so happy to have my 
parents meeting the cute students i work with every day.
then, it was on to google headquarters to meet chase at his office 
for lunch, some g-bike riding, and a tour of the entire campus.
lunch + froyo...and no place to pay!
checking out the grand canyon on google earth
it was such a perfect day, so we took the bikes out on the shoreline 
and rode around the SF bay trail right by the ocean. pure happiness!
then my mom immediately downloaded google chrome 
to replace her internet browser, haha
we took a little break at the google golf stop
then a quick stop at the google bowling alley...
and of course some ping pong. i think by this point my mom and dad were ready to 
turn in their applications to google and move out here with us!
we loved showing them where we work. 
we are so lucky to have such meaningful jobs 
even if chase's does have a few more perks than mine :)
