Field Trips and other fun

We love field trips. Especially the ones where we get to connect with nature. I think one of the things I like most about our home school group is the outings to local places we didn't even know existed!

Last week we spent time at a nature center that in actuality, is hiding, snuggled away, just off of the freeway in Long Beach. It was informative, fun and beautiful with a 1 mile trail, 2 mile trail, pond & learning center. The grounds were well maintained and full of life. Such a great learning experience.

 Turtles have spines & their shells have patterns & textures.

After that we headed to the beach for lunch on the pier. There is something cool & creepy about eating lunch in an old building on the part of the pier that has the original looking timber. 

Racing about with a hand full of shells.

Do you have any favorite outings?
