Field Trip Foto Friday: The Fire Station

Fire Station Field Trip

It’s been a while since I did my field trip series here. It started back in 2005 with my big kids when they were in their field trip crazy days, and I have done field trip reviews on and off for years… but with my older two in high school and the little guys too […]

Not much else beats browsing an art museum, listening to the chirping birds, and basking in a garden. Art museums are my favorite.
