Fun Friday – Field Trips!

I have been on two field trips in the last week; one with Big Brother to a local nursery because he has been learning about plants, and one with The Princess to our local natural habitat zoo because she has been learning about animals.

I tried to snap a few pictures of the kids and their friends learning in the fun settings, but I also let them take charge of the camera at times so that they could practice their photography skills.  They were both very proud of their photos so I thought I would share some. 🙂

First, Tallahassee Nurseries with 3rd graders:

that’s my girl in the front row with a disgusted look on her face…she was not that excited about being so close to a baby alligator

here’s a shot of my girl (in pig tails) waiting for the hand sanitizer…she touched the alligator so quickly, the camera missed it.
