The Field Trip

So Rob and I decided to take the kids on a little field trip this past Saturday. We drove to a little nature center about a half an hour away from home - the same place Caleb went to on his kindergarten field trip this year. We looked at some animals - mostly snakes and other little animals in terrariums (is that what those little glass cage things are called?) and played in the touch tank. That was pretty interesting - you could touch (but not pick up) starfish, crabs, mollusks and other assorted water creatures.

Here are Rob and the girls looking at the red-tailed hawk that did not make it into the picture.


And some shots of the kids playing with the creatures in the touch tank.





Afterwards, we went to lunch and then headed home. It was the first trip we've taken in a while and we all had a blast!

Amanda,
I can't believe how big your children are getting. Obviously we haven't seen you for a while. Your family looks great.

We have moved to Wake Forest. So, if you are ever up this way, look us up.
