Wonderful Wednesday - Kaden's Field Trip

We have had a very busy week this week, and I wanted to share a few pictures with you. It is my goal to start blogging every Wednesday and Friday because those are my days off, it is also my goal to do something fun with my kids on each of these days. These blogs will be called "Wonderful Wednesdays" and "Fabulous Fridays".'s our First edition of "Wonderful Wednesdays"
Kaden had his first field trip for school and we started by having a picnic lunch at the park. Then it was on to Henrietta Creek Apple Orchard. You can imagine my amazement to find out that there's a real apple orchard close by! It was super fun, and a beautiful day to be outside.
Here we are enjoying a picnic lunch at our favorite park - Johnson Road Park!

our tour guide - this lady was awesome, she got the kiddos so excited about what she was showing them, she let them feel a lamb's ear plant, touch and smell a lemon basil plant, rosemary, showed us the fluffy chicks, let the kids dig for worms and hold them in the "worm bucket", showed us things like loofah growing, watermelon, pumpkins, squash, and okra, showed us where the bees are making hives and honey, the apple washing machine, cotton growing, etc.
