A trip around town!

Lexi had her end of the year trip a couple weeks ago. It was a walking field trip around town. Lainie also had her Mothers day/end of the year program at school that afternoon. It was a busy day for me!!! We started by walking to the Dorothy Page Museum, which was surprisingly interesting! Who knew? We are planning to go back this summer so we can explore and enjoy a little more of what it has to offer. Seventy third graders spoils the atmosphere of a museum just a little. :) After the museum we started across town to Wonderland Park to eat lunch and burn a little energy. When we got to Wonderland I snapped a couple pictures of the kids eating lunch and then it was back to the school to get a good seat for the program. Lainie was so cute, she was one of the "three blind mice" in one of the skits. As I sat there watching my little girl growing up right in front of me I remembered it wasn't that long ago that I sat in this very same spot listening to my other grown up little girl sing these very same songs about how much they love me, and how quickly they are growing up and sprouting wings! Talk about a tear jerker!!! When they were finished with the program Lainie took me into the classroom where she served cake and punch while presenting me with all sorts of homemade goodies. It was a special time. Finished up with the program I put Lainie and Landin into the car with Grandma and she dropped me off at the City Hall where I met back up with Lexi and the troop. We met with the Mayor and elected city officials to have a public hearing. Lexi missed being elected Mayor by one vote! When the hearing discussing the "prized pea eating rabbits" ended the kids collected their free loot courtesy of the city and we hightailed it back to the school. All in all it was a great day.
