It’s field trip time! Over spring break my mom and I took all the kidlets down to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and it was amazing!!! Like stunningly beautiful.
And they have this amazing kids’ section! It’s relatively new; it had just opened when I was pregnant with the twins. Y’all, it is totally worth the drive!
They had a ton of fun water activities. Kate and Xander loved the waterfall. 🙂 And Mia loved the little stream. I would be prepared for your children to get soaked. lol.
We happened to be there on a Friday and they had the cutest little preschool mommy and me class. And it was free! Or rather, it was included with admission. lol. It was so much fun! I actually considered if Xander and I would be able to make it down there in time after we dropped Mia off at school (she starts in April ::sob::) but I think it’s just a little too far. They had a bunch of rocks and seeds and stuff for the kids to touch and smell. Then they read them a story.
The second half of the class was a nature walk! I had to put Mia in the stroller so we could keep up with the class, but the instructors were so good about it. The other kids would gather around a plant to smell it and then they would bring something over to Mia so she was included. It was not something I asked for, but it was certainly appreciated. 🙂
All in all, this place gets 2 enthusiastic thumbs up from me.
