Field Trip # 1

Abby and some of her classmates riding the train
Abby petting the bearded dragon. She's so sweet...
The first thing she said was, "I wish Carter could've been here! He would've loved that cool lizard!"

This past Tuesday, I was lucky enough to travel with Abby's second grade class to Salisbury, NC on a field trip. Although the activities were a tad unorganized (not the school's fault-the park just wasn't prepared for that amount of kiddos!) we had a great time. We rode a train, pet a bearded dragon, a snake and a turtle. We also visited a gem mine and listened to a geologist give a talk on the kinds of rocks you can find in North Carolina. There was also a petting zoo and the most amazing playground I have ever seen! Neither of which I took any pictures of :(
But I did remember to take a few.... Here are two of my favorites! Field trip #2 takes place this coming Wednesday. Carter's class is heading to Asheboro to the Zoo!! Can't wait!
