I had so much fun this week going on a field trip with Baby Doll to Wheeler Farm! There were lots of parents, so I only had Baby Doll and her cute friend in my group. When we first got there, we decided to walk around for the 20 minutes we had to wait for our tour guide.
And when I say walk, I mean half-run.
They wanted to see everything! As we headed back to the big barn, I realized that all of those things would be shown to us again on our little tour. We had an opportunity to watch a blacksmith at work, to ride on a wagon pulled by a tractor, and to shake a little container of cream into homemade butter. (Baby Doll was extremely serious about that task and finished it off so it could be opened in front of the kids.)
There were baby animals, but not as many as I had hoped. Another month and we probably could have seen several more.When our tour was over, we headed for the pavilion and the playground to eat our lunches and wait for the buses to take us back to the school.
When we climbed on the bus, I was rather dismayed to see that my girls had chosen the very back row. I tend to get carsick, so this was not a happy moment for me. Unfortunately, I had little time to worry about my own stomach since I was pretty sure Baby Doll regretted her decision within about 2 minutes of riding over bumpy roads.
Thankfully, we made it back to the school with our lunches still intact and a vow from my daughter to NEVER ride in the back seats of the bus again.
