Our First Field Trip

I’ve taken my kids lots of places, of course, but we’ve never been able to call it a field trip!  🙂

It was a beautiful morning in Memphis….


We went to Mud Island River Park to learn all about the Mighty Mississippi!!  We were able to see several museum exhibits about the history of the river, The Civil War, and music!  They really brought to life some of the books we’ve been reading!  We waded in a five-block model of the Lower Mississippi River right on the river and found many  towns we’ve visited on maps along the walk.




This was NOT part of my plan…

…but I guess it made our first field trip a lot of fun!  🙂
