In the spring the kindergartners take a field trip to the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens.
It was a beautiful day for a field trip to the arboretum, but seeing the crazy amount of buses that were coming in was a little intimidating. There was mass confusion on where the kids were going to be dropped off - seems like there was a lack of communication within the arboretum but it wasn't a big deal and we finally saw our kiddos unloading!
Walking in with their partners!
Since it was 10:30am (and Kinder is used to eating lunch at 10:45) we headed straight to the picnic area for lunch.
Should have brought some picnic blankets! I'll be prepared for Grayson and Hayden :)
After lunch the moms helped take kids to the restroom. While the rest of the kids waited Mrs. Littlefield entertained them with some games.
We got to the children's garden at 11:30 and broke into small groups. We had an hour to explore before meeting back up with the rest of the class.
First up - the maze.
We have actually never done this before because its on the right side of the garden - we always walk in and go left to the little kid area and then spend all of our time over there. Anyhow, the kids thought it was pretty cool and it was nice that they were kinda trapped in there - only one entrance/exit.
We explored quite a few areas - some were more crowded than others.
The tree house was kinda crazy - and with all the kiddos climbing up it, it reminded me of an exhibit at the zoo!
