Field Trips Galore

Our last week of school turned into the week of field trips. Since we had family visiting and Tomatis most almost every afternoon, we spent the mornings doing fun trips around town.

On Monday we took Grandma Sue to Build-a-Bear Workshop. My kids have several friends with these bears and talk about how fun it was to make them.  However, I wanted it to be clearly a once in a lifetime opportunity instead of just another thing to do at the mall. Doing it with grandparents made it a special and rare treat.

It really is a fun experience. They get to pick the shell of a stuffed animal, a heart to go in the animal and then it is stuffed in front of them. Then they get to brush it and pick an outfit out for it. At the end, they name it and get a take home box for their stuffed animal.

While we were at the mall, we went in the Hurricane Tube. It only goes to a category 1 but is fun for those who want to experience some real wind in a safe environment. You can also stuff a few people in each time so you get more bang for your 2 bucks.
People with long hair are especially fun to take pictures of when they come out. Sorry, Grandma Sue! This picture was too hard to resist.

On Tuesday we went to education day at the baseball field. Unfortunately, it got rained out in the 3rd inning. We were able to see our team play two home runs and get to see the mascot Teddy.

On Wednesday we went miniature golfing with Grandma and Grandpa. This was fun and only the kids' second or third time.

Check out what Little Red Riding Hood wears to play golf. She and I were born in the wrong century when it comes to fashion. We both like to wear long dresses. LOL

We finished out the week with Tom Sawyers' birthday on Thursday and Biltmore Estate on Friday.

I probably will not be back on for a week or so. I am hoping to back-up my blog before the big upgrade. I'm a worry wart that way.

Blessings, Dawn

    Wow; what a fun week for everyone! Nice to keep certain things as special so they don't become mundane for them.

  2. I am still transferring my old blog into a book. I get distracted so easily, but with the upgrade coming soon I have a renewed interest in doing it. Only 10 pages to go.

    Never done build-a-bear. That sounds like it would be a good date with my girls. Hmmm....

  3. What a fantastic week!! How fun!!! I need to find a mini golf place, my kids love to do it and the one that's nearby is pretty yucky. Maybe we'll get lucky when we go camping this summer


  4. What a fun, fun week!!! Loved hearing about all that you did. We havent' ever done the Build A Bear either. Does look like fun. Loved the golfing outfit! She is adorable!



  5. my kids loved build a bear(me too)!!

  6. What a fun week. Have a great vacation. Definitely backup your blog template. That way you'll have your header and all your buttons in the sidebar. It can't hurt to backup your whole blog, but it'll be time consuming.
