Take your Alex to Google day

This past Thursday, April 24, 2008 was "Take your daughter and son to work day", so Alex and I ventured to the Googleplex. In true Google fashion, they planned quite a shindig, including shirts and all. I made the mistake of telling Alex about the event over a week in advance, which meant leading up to the big day, every morning she said, "Daddy, are we going to work today?"

When the big day arrive, Alex got all decked out in her Google gear, messenger bag and all.

We headed to the bus stop and awaited the shuttle.

When we got to Google after the long bus ride (about 5 minutes in, Alex in a loud voice asked "is this going to take a long time?" in a very loud voice, causing everyone on the fairly quite bus to crack up!), we toured around campus, checked out the meeting rooms, and met the TRex!

It was an awesome day, filled with bouncy houses, bubbles, lots of food, and even some frisbee on the lawn. Alex had a blast, and can't understand why I wouldn't be super excited to go to work every day. Good question, perspective is everything.
